Quotes

"Under the current structure of strategic competition between Washington and Beijing, the strategic value of North Korea is very high. Therefore, China does not trust North Korea and is very frustrated, but absolutely has no plans to shut it out."
"The North Koreans spent a lot of effort on the four known DMZ tunnels, but didn't get much use out of them," he said. "So, I suspect that they probably stopped building tunnels after the 199"
...The reason is that he wanted to force former Iraqi Prime Minister NouriNouri al Maliki to resign. He told Freidman "’that we did not just start taking a bunch of airstrikes all across Iraq as soon as ISIL [Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant] came in was because that would have taken the pressure off of al-Maliki.’ That only would have encouraged, he said, Maliki and other Shiites to think: 'We don't actually have to make compromises. We don't have to make any decisions. We don't have to go through the difficult process of figuring out what we've done wrong in the past. All we have to do is let the Americans bail us out again. And we can go about business as usual.' "
U SS National Security Advisor Susan E Rice praised the move: "These are encouraging developments that we hope can set Iraq on a new path and unite its people against the threat presented by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant."
