Shutting down the nukes
I found two articles (here and here) discussing progress in negotiations to shut down nuclear reactors in North Korea since the frozen funds have been transferred. They are also receiving tens of thousands of pounds of oil from South Korea as part of the deal. Today we were talking a little more about Juche, and now that NK is about te receive such a hefty contribution from South Korea, in addition to beginning to eliminate its precious nuclear power, I wonder what effect this will have on the national psyche of "self-reliance."
