Park sworn in as S Korea president

"North Korea's recent nuclear test is a challenge to the survival and future of the Korean people, and there should be no mistake that the biggest victim will be none other than North Korea itself." BBC

The new Secretary of State is pushing Iran for similar concessions on their nuclear program.  He now has a kindred soul in South Korea to keep pressure on North Korea.  Interestingly, the United States has never publicly appealed to China to thwart the North Korean nuclear program.

Most interestingly, South Korea was still using horse drawn ploughs about 40 years ago.  Now they have done what the United States still has yet to do; elect its first female president.
