The death of Kim Jong Il had often been anticipated in rumors and speculation since his stroke in 2008, but when it finally happened on December 17, Real brand MEDROL online, 2011, it was nevertheless, quite unexpected. Indeed, MEDROL description, in the last weeks and months, with the busy schedule of the North Korean leader including visits to China and Russia, No prescription MEDROL online, it looked rather more unlikely, though the fact that he suffered from health problems had been long known and to some extent even admitted by the North Korean media. Kim’s death comes in a time of confusion regarding the state of the North Korean economy. In Pyongyang and its surrounding areas there are obvious signs of increased Chinese investment and a rebounding economy, kjøpe MEDROL på nett, köpa MEDROL online, with more consumer goods available, the number of cell phone users soaring to close to one million, Purchase MEDROL, and traffic increasing to the point of formerly unthinkable traffic jams. The countryside, on the other hand, remains pitch dark, fresh water is often of dubious quality, people are freezing and food is scarce, BUY MEDROL NO PRESCRIPTION. With a “growth banana” (Sinuiju—Nampo—Pyongyang—Sariwon—Kaesong) and a stagnating rest of the population (roughly three quarters), disparities in income and life opportunities are growing. In this situation, comprar en línea MEDROL, comprar MEDROL baratos, China has been eager to reassure its firm stand behind the new North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, while the rest of the region takes a wait-and-see attitude. Cheap MEDROL, The future holds various possibilities. Most likely there will be some form of regency, open or undeclared, around the new leader Kim Jong Un, online buying MEDROL. BUY MEDROL NO PRESCRIPTION, This might lead to a smooth power transfer, but equally possible, and given the inexperience of the new leader and the lack of preparation of his reign, the outbreak of factional strife, not unlike the situation in China after the death of Mao could happen, once new coalitions have been formed. The pillars of power—military, secret service, Buy MEDROL no prescription, party, government and the clan of friends and family—have somewhat different interests and are internally less homogenous than they appear from the outside. Popular unrest might even ensue. Whatever will happen in the medium and long terms, MEDROL reviews, it is unlikely that changes will begin soon. For now, Order MEDROL online overnight delivery no prescription, the country is in shock and power holders are rallying around the new leader, the safest alternative in a time of uncertainty.

In this political context, there is an opportunity for South Korean leadership to step up and carve out a new relationship, BUY MEDROL NO PRESCRIPTION. President Lee Myung Bak, weakened by a series of election defeats and corruption cases, purchase MEDROL online no prescription, and his Grand National Party in confusion before the next elections, has the chance of a lifetime to reverse a dismal situation in inter-Korean relations by proposing bold measures to improve relations with the North. Buy no prescription MEDROL online, By using this window of opportunity, President Lee could escape his lame duck status and end up as the president known for promoting Korean unity. This bold new plan would not need to offer new bribes for bringing North Korea to the table, as the US essentially did some weeks ago, MEDROL dosage. Instead, it would suffice for the time being to shift the blame for strained relations to the old leadership and open a new page of negotiations. BUY MEDROL NO PRESCRIPTION, Helmut Kohl, the chancellor of German unity, demonstrated how this kind of face-saving move could be done. Buy cheap MEDROL no rx, In 1988 and early 1989, after seven years in government, no one would have thought much of a third consecutive term for Kohl. The government looked spent, buy MEDROL without prescription, various scandals had taken a toll on the governing party, and leadership of the chancellor seemed so weak that some of his opponents in the party tried to organize a putsch at the 1989 party convention in Bremen. Buy MEDROL online cod, Though this failed, Kohl seemed to be at the road’s end. Then, however, rx free MEDROL, with growing public discontent in East Germany and the fall of one communist state after another, he reemerged. And with his 10-point plan on German confederation and unification in November 28, 1989, Kohl became the successful and undisputed leader of Germany and achieved unification in less than a year, by October 1990, BUY MEDROL NO PRESCRIPTION. Generic MEDROL, Are there lessons to be learned from Kohl’s 10-point plan. Certainly, the geopolitical situation today is different, and North Korea shows no signs of public uprisings or factional strife, MEDROL samples. But the fact that Kohl made public a bold statement of support for change and, at the same time, Buy generic MEDROL, offered a grand vision for potential partners from the former enemy can indeed be compared. Kohl’s plan included humanitarian and economic aid, a confederation based on treaties, disarmament and a unification process that was closely coordinated with Eastern and Western neighbors, MEDROL trusted pharmacy reviews. BUY MEDROL NO PRESCRIPTION, At that time, many in Germany’s left opposition vilified him for openly daring to speak of unification. Indeed, dynamic reality soon overtook his rather cautious planning. Buy MEDROL online no prescription, The time is now ripe for a similarly daring message from President Lee Myung Bak. This does not need to include new bribes to bring North Korea to the negotiation table, just a fresh start. What it should include are measures to repair the working relationship between both states, MEDROL photos, and controllable and limited first steps of further cooperation. One such step might be a long-planned and delayed expansion of the Kaesong Industrial Complex, where the interests of both states coincide the most, BUY MEDROL NO PRESCRIPTION. Later stages could include all open issues, Discount MEDROL, including the aggressions of North Korea in 2010, the Kumgang Mountain tourism project and an agreement on lasting peace. Also, and probably most problematic, MEDROL forum, there should be a perspective for North Korea’s security and military apparatus to be included, with potential carrots and sticks at the same time. Effects of MEDROL, If not, it is difficult to imagine that there is any incentive for this pillar of power to follow any other route than the established way of confrontation. Most importantly, all this should not be done in secret negotiations, MEDROL coupon, but rather in a transparent way that is known not only to selected functionaries in North Korea, but all people. BUY MEDROL NO PRESCRIPTION, And it should be done in reassuring and conciliatory terms, fortiter in re, suaviter in modo. Online buy MEDROL without a prescription, It must be an offer to the current leadership, but moreover to all potential future leaders and for all the people of North Korea. Such an agreement, which in time would—through word-of-mouth propaganda and the growing number of ways of communication inside North Korea as well as with the outside—be effective in bringing about better relations, fast shipping MEDROL, and maybe help to open North Korea. The “Vision 3000: Denuclearization and Openness” was a similar attempt, MEDROL images, but the time was obviously wrong in 2008.

Today, it is time to renew this offer and make it more concrete. President Lee, who himself talks of a “window of opportunity” left open, should lay out in a clear, step-by-step roadmap for a way forward, BUY MEDROL NO PRESCRIPTION. This roadmap, is MEDROL addictive, as said before, should prioritize issues of common interest. Buy MEDROL from canada, As such, besides Kaesong issues, it could possibly even include the planned, but never realized new economic zone in Haeju: this would indicate a willingness to go forward with the summits of 2000 and 2007 much cherished by the North, about MEDROL, but with a project ultimately helping to open up North Korea. Other issues, Online buying MEDROL hcl, like Mt. Kumgang, mainly a money-making endeavor for North Korea, could be put on the back of the list. The plan should not be addressed to the government of North Korea alone, but to the North Korean people. By this, a new dynamic of change might be achieved and the kairos, the lucky moment in history, used before a new leadership in the North settles in. Certainly, the latest statements in North Korean state media do not support such a development, but it is just this official rigidity, which makes a more dramatic move by South Korea necessary.

    I agree, this is an important addition to the discussion. We should not forget, though, that Kohl’s main achievement was to seize a chance offered to him by history (and by the East German people). He did very little to make all this happen, except of course for the economic and political pressure on the East in the Cold War context. Kohl was just there at the right time and – this must be said – did the right thing. I agree that German unification would not have happened without his quick and bold reaction to the events in East Germany. This included the very simple but effective election slogan in support of the East German CDU in March 1990: if you want the Deutschmark, you must accept unification, and we are the party that will provide this. The SPD made a major historical mistake in not understanding this properly. But to repeat: it was a reaction. The situation in Korea is very different; as long as NK shows no sign of disintegration, I think comparisons with Kohl are problematic (the fact aside that Lee MB cannot have another term unless he has the constitution changed).

    Dear Bernhard,

    I read your article with interest, and also with not a little regret over having opted for retirement rather than continuting to work on Korea. These are interesting times.

    Regards,
    Jim
