The Arab Spring Spooks North Korea

Britain’s Independent reports that North Korea refuses to recognize Libya’s new government, which doesn’t surprise me in the least. Moammar Qaddafi’s Libya was the closest thing the world had to another North Korea after the lunacracy in Turkmenistan.

The Kim family also refuses to let the hundreds of North Korean citizens working in Libya come home. Who knows what dangerous ideas they might bring back?

It’s probably just as well as long as they can get out of Libya and find their way to Seoul where they can live freely.
