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.

Army Operating Concept gets an update,
China recently hailed Myanmar as a "friendly neighbor" and warned the world not to meddle in its upcoming election.

General Tan Shway, head of Burma's military junta, arrived in Beijing last week for a state visit with President Hu Jintao. Burmese leaders are engaged in a dangerous balancing act to retain some freedom of action between India and China. Shway's visit indicates a tilt more towards China.
Agencies now have another 12 months to submit their transition plans and have GSA pay for the costs to move to the new telecommunications contract. GSA does an about-face after saying for the past year it would hold agencies to that Aug. 31 deadline. Congressman Towns to introduce legislation to require agencies to transition to Networx by June 2011.
India recently conveyed its concerns to China about 11,000 troops reported to be in Pakistan-administered Kashmir. The Chinese said soldiers were assisting with flood relief, yet earlier unconfirmed press reports indicated the troops were providing security for railroad construction. It appears that China is dropping the nuances in its policy actions of the past ten years as to disputed regions of Asia. It is siding openly and unequivocally with longstanding allies. This explains China's open embrace of Kim Jong-il, and its equally open tilt to Pakistan on the issue of Kashmir.
