China to Build Pipelines from Myanmar

According to Chinese media, The China National Petroleum Corporation has begun construction of oil and natural gas pipelines between China and Myanmar. According to the company's statement, CNPC wants to complete the China section of the pipelines, as well as the refinery, by 2013. The significance of this information, plus other recent reports about China building a railroad through Burma, is that they reinforce the assessment that Chinese leaders see Burma as a gateway for channeling natural resources to China. This symbolizes the next step in China's economic expansion by creating a network of vertical and horizontal monopolies on a global scale.

North Korea Moves to Improve Living Standards

North Korean Premier, Chay Yong Rim, said on September 8th that hastening economic growth to improve living standards is of critical importance. The public statement indicates Kim Jong-il's government has made a major change in strategic priorities in favor of non-military development. Kim Jong-il's father, Kim Il-sung, reached the same conclusion in 1993 because North Koreans were in danger of starving. In 1994, under threat of a military revolt, Kim Jong-il reprioritized military production. Sixteen years later and facing death, Kim apparently had an epiphany about the wisdom of his father. Once again, North Koreans are malnourished and in danger of starving.
