The education of Kim Jong-un
But he may be reaching a critical point where he has to make a strategic choice. While Kim has avidly pursued nuclear weapons, he is also, in accord with his announced policy of byungjin, deeply invested in improving the North Korean economy—certainly a tall order given the gravity of internal changes, the weight of sanctions, and Beijing’s willingness to apply stronger pressure than we have seen before. Trends in North Korea’s internal affairs, such as greater information penetration from the outside world, loosening of state control over resources and markets, the rise of consumerism, and the growth of a moneyed class, will also place severe stresses on the Kim regime.

At the same time, international pressure on North Korea has never been greater. A number of recent actions have the potential to squeeze North Korea’s ability to earn hard currency for the regime to fund its economic and military goals, including: recent U.N. Security Council resolutions, such as the latest UNSCR 2397 in response to North Korea’s ICBM test in November; successful U.S. efforts to compel countries—including China—to cut off trade and financial links with North Korea; and President Trump’s September 21, 2017 executive order imposing new sanctions on North Korea (and authorizing broad secondary sanctions). These efforts also have the potential to undermine Kim’s ability to reward elites and suppress their ability to make money for themselves or raise money for loyalty payments to the regime.

The combined weight of all these pressures, internal and external, on North Korea, coming precisely at a time of rising expectations within the country, may overwhelm the regime…

… given recent developments and Kim’s likely increased confidence about his ability to call the shots, the U.S. and its partners and allies, including China, must be clear-eyed about the potential for Kim to shift his stated defensive position to a more aspirational one.

I still agree with the U.S. intelligence community’s assessment that “Pyongyang’s nuclear capabilities are intended for deterrence, international prestige, and coercive diplomacy,” as the director of National Intelligence testified in early 2017. But I believe it would be a mistake to extrapolate Kim’s future intentions from his past pronouncements and actions because we do not and will never have enough information about North Korea’s intentions and capabilities that will make us feel certain about our understanding of Kim. He and his country do not exist in an ahistorical space that is unchanging and static. Our analysis and policy responses must also change and evolve and be prepared for all potential scenarios. We, too, must avoid edging toward hubris.

'Forza Horizon 4' is an open-world carPG coming October 2nd https://ift.tt/2LE2VLb Prospective https://ift.tt/2xZg3Iy June 10, 2018 at 10:48PM

Tim Seppala/Engadget

One thing you can always expect from an Xbox E3 press conference is the latest installment in the Forza series. This year, that means Forza Horizon 4. It's set in Britain, where you'll have your choice of top-end supercars, Ken Block's Hoonigan Ford, off-road racers and more. The game also introduces a shared open-world experience and a new 60fps mode for Xbox One X. You'll have to contend with dynamic seasons, which change the world around you in terms of looks and gameplay -- and of course, weather. In winter, for example, a lake has frozen over and there's snow to deal with.

If that gets you revved up, you'll be able to play Forza Horizon 4 on both Xbox and Windows 10 on October 2nd. What's more, the game will be available on Xbox Game Pass the same day. For now, take a look a preview of the new additions in the trailer below.

At Black Pixel, I mandated that we get on board with Swift and get ahead of the crowd on it, simultaneously knowing that it not a great move on Apple’s part.

But it was where things were going and we could get ahead of it or get left in the dust.
