The ABC news (Australian public television) is reporting that food shortages in North Korea are becoming so bad that soldiers are going unfed.   This is a stark departure from the famine in the early 1990’s when North Korea’s military was insulated from food shortages, while well more than a million citizens died of starvation.

The army is what keeps the Kim Dynasty in business.  If it becomes disgruntled, anything can happen on the Korean Peninsula.  The issue of instability in nuclear North Korea, or an outright regime collapse, could –and should — creep its way into the presidential race. It is the most dangerous situation in the world today.
