I was graduated from Yale University in 1963 with a B.A. in economics and from the University of Virginia School of law, where I was the notes editor of the Virginia Law Review in 1966. Following four years of active duty with the Army JAG Corps, with two tours in Korea, I entered private practice in Washington, D.C. specializing in communications law. I retired in 1996 to sail with my wife, Jeanie, on our sailboat Namaste to and in the Caribbean. In 2002, we settled in the Republic of Panama and live in a very rural area up in the mountains. I have contributed to Pajamas Media and Pajamas Tatler. In addition to my own blog, Dan Miller in Panama, I an an editor of Warsclerotic and contribute to China Daily Mail when I have something to write about North Korea.

Has North Korea’s Kim Jong-un replaced John Boehner as Speaker of the House?


We have met the enemy and it is us: we have become too tired to be effective and hence are becoming indifferent. The charade on Capitol Hill continues, and not only about the nuke “deal” with Iran. Will the carnival end before it’s too late, or will Obama continue to win? The House speaker is elected by … Continue reading

North Korea announces bold new peace plan (satire)


Editor’s note: This is a guest post by Kim Wu-hu, the highly respected director of North Korea’s Ministry of Everlasting Truth. She is variously believed to be Kim Jong-un‘s sister or illegitimate daughter. Kim Jong-un (also known as Kim Chi-un), the universally beloved Dear Leader of the Democratic Peoples’ Republic of Korea, today announced a bold … Continue reading

Watch out North Korea, your nukes are next!


Having been thoroughly schooled by Iran during the P5+1 nuke negotiations on the necessity for flexibility, the Obama Administration is now even better prepared to take on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. As North Korea and more recently Iran proved, sanctions are feeble devices for getting rogue nations to eliminate their nuclear weapons programs. Possibly effective in bringing such nations … Continue reading

The Iran scam worsens: the North Korea – China connection


It is likely that the P5+1 nuke “deal” with Iran will be approved soon. Military and other nuke sites which Iran has not “disclosed” will not be inspected. Nor will Iran’s nuke ties with North Korea — which P5+1 member China seems to be helping, Iran’s massive support for terrorism and abysmal human rights record be considered because they are also deemed … Continue reading

In China, US gets it wrong on North Korea and Iran nuclear deals


North Korea played those negotiating its denuclearisation for fools, much as Iran has been doing more recently with Obama. It must not have been difficult to do. To continue the process with Iran, and to repeat it with North Korea, makes no sense. Speaking in the People’s Republic of China on May 16th, Secretary Kerry … Continue reading

John Kerry will seek an audience with Kim Jong-un in North Korea


Secretary of State Kerry has had at least two historic diplomatic successes recently: demanding that Israel give the Palestinians whatever they want in exchange for destruction peace and begging Iran and her Supreme Leader Khamenei to be slightly more discrete about their acquisition and development of nukes. With those successes behind him, having little else to do … Continue reading

China and U.S. amazed that North Korea landed on the Sun


Having been briefed by top security advisers about North Korea’s success in landing an astronaut on the Sun, President Obama today announced his decisive response. China has also bowed to North Korea’s superior technology. On January 21st, a satirical post “appeared at the Waterford Whisper News…” mimicking typical North Korean propaganda; it proclaimed: The State News Agency of … Continue reading

China claims North Korea’s Jang Song-thaek execution eaten alive by dogs


According to a report from The Week First Post, Initial reports suggested Jang Song-thaek, the No.2 man in North Korea, had been shot by a firing squad after being found guilty of treason. But an account in Wen Wei Po – China’s official mouthpiece – suggests the reality was even more disturbing. According to the report, Jang … Continue reading

China concerned about North Korean and Iranian nuclear weapons programs coming to special economic zones


Given recent events in North Korea, China is concerned about the development of Special Economic Zones, and the possibility of their use for Iran’s nuclear weapons development. In addition to her own nuclear weapons development and assistance to Iran, North Korea is trying to establish new zones to accommodate foreign investors and businesses. Iran could … Continue reading

Iran, North Korea and nuke negotiations


China’s closest ally, North Korea is in bed with Iran over nuclear weapons. Although different in many ways, both are rogue nations. Neither can be trusted. In the case of North Korea, negotiations that resulted in “humanitarian” aid and relief from sanctions led to continued development and testing of nuclear weapons and delivery systems. Iranian … Continue reading

June 25 1950 North Korea invades South Korea


The two introductory paragraphs from an article I posted last April, titled Is the 1950 Korea Mess Relevant to the New Korean Mess are provided below: The North Korean invasion of South Korea began on June 25, 1950 when North Korean troops — many of them battle-hardened veterans of Mao’s fights against Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalists — crossed the … Continue reading

China and North Korea: A tangled partnership


Do we know what’s happening? Probably not. But  historical context may help. The following article from Stratfor provides useful historical context for the current situations in North Korea and its usual (apparent) ally, China. It spans many centuries. The Chinese ruling powers are new. Kim Jong-un and his regency are also relatively new. Nevertheless, we probably … Continue reading

Happy birthday Kim Il-sung


Well, sorta. Maybe it will be his last, but I wouldn’t count on it. Kim Il-sung was born (it is written and may ever be true) on April 15, 1912. There are over 500 statues of Kim Il-sung in North Korea. The most prominent are at Kim Il-sung University, Kim Il-sung Stadium, Mansudae Hill, Kim Il-sung Bridge and the Immortal Statue … Continue reading

Is the 1950 Korea mess relevant to the new Korean mess?


The North Korean invasion of South Korea began on June 25, 1950 when North Korean troops — many of them battle-hardened veterans of Mao’s fights against Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalists — crossed the thirty-eighth parallel to invade South Korea, initially at the Ongjin Peninsula. They met with little resistance as they took Seoul and proceeded largely unimpeded … Continue reading

China, Iran and North Korea form a nuclear stew


Relations between China and North Korea seem, cosmetically, to be getting chillier. China joined the unanimous U.N. Security Council vote for sanctions in response to North Korea’s most recent nuke test. However, that vote was taken after China had successfully demanded that they not be too hurtful and that further negotiations be the principal objective. … Continue reading
