    DONALD TRUMP: Here's how I'd handle that 'madman' in North Korea Colin Campbell Jan. 6, 2016 Real-estate tycoon Donald Trump said Wednesday that the US should pressure China into getting North Korea under control. "It's something I've been talking about for a long time. You have this madman over there who probably would use it," Trump said during an interview on "Fox & Friends." "And nobody talks to him, other than of course Dennis Rodman," he said. "That's about it." Trump was referring to North Korea's supreme leader, Kim Jong Un, while addressing North Korea's announcement Tuesday night that it...

    (CNSNews.com) – Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday disputed the suggestion that the administration has not given the North Korean nuclear threat enough attention as a result of its focus on the Iran nuclear talks and other issues, declaring that “North Korea has never been left unattended to, not for one day.” “That premise [that the North Korean situation has been neglected] is absolutely inaccurate, it’s without foundation,” he told reporters in the State Department briefing room. Pyongyang on Wednesday carried out a nuclear test – its fourth since 2006 – catapulting the reclusive Stalinist state back into the...

Sources in Pyongyang, quoted by South Korea's Chosun Ilbo newspaper, said authorities in the North Korean capital have issued an order requiring that men keep their hair to a maximum 2 cm (0.8 inches) in length. They are also being instructed to pay homage to Mr Kim by copying his trademark swept-back bouffant that emerges upwards from the shaved patches above his ears.

To put things simply, he seemingly wants to initiate policy which in many regards is similar to the reform and openness policy of China under Deng Xiaoping.

Shin was one of the lawmakers who attended the briefing. The office of another lawmaker, Lee Cheol Woo, released similar information about...

"Excuses or reasoning doesn't work for Kim Jong Un, and his style of rule is to push through everything, and if there's any objection, he takes that as a challenge to authority and comes...

Kim Jong-un has looked north over the Chinese border and decided that market reforms along the lines of those allowed by his comrades in Beijing may allow the preservation of the current structure but...
