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.

China Warns World not to Meddle in Myanmar Election

China recently hailed Myanmar as a "friendly neighbor" and warned the world not to meddle in its upcoming election. This praise plus warning exposes the fundamental difference between the Chinese communist ideas of democracy and those of the West. Authoritarian Asian states like the legitimacy that voting lends, but the idea of an outcome determined by the electorate is alien to this political philosophy. 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.
