Will there be a December surprise from North Korea?
I’m surprised that North Korea has been unusually silent the past few weeks. Even after President Obama was re-elected there was nothing out of Pyongyang. Not since the incident with the pro-South Korea leaflets being released along the DMZ has the North made any announcements.
Last week, November 23rd was the second anniversary of the Yeongpyeong Island shelling. Although South Korean military and civilian leaders gathered on the island to remember the event, there was not a word from Pyongyang.
With Mr. Ahn bowing out of the presidential race in the South making it a two-way race between Ms. Park and Mr. Moon, I wonder what the North has up their sleeve? Will there be a December surprise of some sort to influence the election?
