North and South Korea uniting under one flag for Olympics
No one has been paying much attention with the hidden USA Civil War now in full swing. What has happened here is that North Korea has used the Olympic Games as a face saving gambit to open full unification talks with South Korea.
The games were the easy part and got things underway while keeping the media out of the picture.
I do think that they need to settle this ASAP and South Korean Generosity will go a long way to make it very palatable as occurred with East Germany. At the same time the North Koreans will see their athletes marching under the united Korean Flag. The only issue is how to dress up complete capitulation as something else.
Obviously both the Russians and the Chinese have told them enough is enough. They also know they do not want to clean up the horrid mess that the USA will visit upon North Korea. This way the South does all the spending.
