NK's missile launches a face-saving signal that they're ready to negotiate? ... http://news.yahoo.com/north-korea-fires-fifth-missile-three-days-092021248.html

Or are they just "jerking our chain..." http://news.yahoo.com/north-korea-missile-launches-pyongyang-toying-foes-161654359.html


South Korea is trying to determine whether these latest "projectiles" were in fact missiles or were shot from a larger caliber artillery gun... http://ca.news.yahoo.com/north-korea-fires-projectile-eastern-waters-day-launching-182425561.html

I wonder how true this is?

Intelligence sources have passed on to DW information that Beijing has a contingency plan in place for when Kim Jong-un's control over the country crumbles.

The reports confirm that China is indeed quietly encouraging regime change and is grooming Kim's brother, Kim Jong-nam to take over his role.

The reports suggest that after Kim Jong-nam is installed in Pyongyang, his brother will be permitted to go into exile, probably in China.

The tactic is not without its pitfalls, however, in part due to the efficiency of the campaign to deify their young leader as the future of the nation.
