Korea’s deals with S. Korean industry and Russian energy concerns; the Bush administration’s overtures to N. Korea in 2006-07, followed up by Obama’s silent treatment; and the debate about whether the US needs to maintain a permanent military presence in East Asia to preserve the status quo and prevent old enemies from clashing again.
