Agree with ends, but not means
Reader comment on: North Korean Succession

I agree that our desire should be for a free and prosperous North Korea, but I disagree that saber rattling by the US would help this process along at all. You also assume that nothing is actually happening, less than 24 hours after his death. If the US line stays this way for months, perhaps I would agree, but I would give the administration a bit more than 24 hours to put in place whatever plan they had for this moment. If you recall, many leveled the same criticism as this one at Obama for his handling of Egypt and Libya, and both turned out far better (so far) than most at the time had predicted based on their criticism of Obama and the State Department. Good catch on the Globe headline though, which is ridiculous.
