North Korea is an enigma wrapped in a mystery as to what it seeks in the world. Kim Jon-un assumed power a few months ago. He indicated a desire to work for peace as he announced a launch of a rocket to be fired in April. President Obama is currently meeting with President hu Jintao of China in Seoul. They issued a joint announcement: “the two leaders have agreed to co-ordinate closely in responding to this potential provocation, and if necessary consier what steps need to be taken following a potential launch.”
Some analysts believe Kim Jon-un wanted to test the desire of China and the US to remain united in dealing with North Korea. Was the launch an attempt to secure support from China and thus break any close working with the USA? Who knows what madness lurks in the heart of any leader of North Korea?
