The Korean Crisis - A Farce ?


U.S. publication: The Korean peninsular crisis is a "blooming of politics".

The Chinese source is quoting the U.S. bimonthly magazine "The National Interest" 国家利益, a prominent conservative publication dealing with political trends that U.S. congress and government are dealing with. The original title of the quoted article is "There's No North Korean Crisis". That article had been published as early as April 12 by Robert A. Manning, a former high-ranking official in some policy planning staff of the U.S. government. His article has been considered important enough to make its way into different Chinese networks.

An evaluation by "New China Network" is using the U.S. author's original expression of a political farce 闹剧 in the main text instead of blooming of politics 政治秀 in the headline.

朝鲜与美韩互相试探对方底线 双方博弈会更激烈

North Korea and the U.S.-South Korean side are mutually exploring the other side's basic lines. Both sides while playing chess can get even more fierce.


On [April] 18, North Korea officially [began] expounding North Korea's principle position as a prerequisite to launching a dialogue that is dealing with the peninsula subject. This came after rejecting an olive branch stretched out by the U.S. and South Korea [and offering] the North Korean side to lay open its conditions for talks. Though, the conditions [exposed] cannot be accepted by the U.S., Japan and South Korea, everything is within the frame of what is being expected.
