Over at Global Public Square, Fareed Zakaria's team has an interesting take on North Korea and Iran.
In "Stuck between the U.S. and a hard place," Middle East analyst Meir Javedanfar looks at the possibility of Iran entering negotiations with the P5+1 facilitated by Turkey. If so, he asks, what would the Obama administration have to offer given the pressure from the potential Republican presidential contenders and other countries to take a hard line against Iran.
Also not to be missed, Council on Foreign Relations' Scott Snyder considers "Kim Jong-un's dangerous brother," the eldest son of Kim Jong-il. Kim Jong-nam is reported to have been groomed for succession until he fell out of favor in 2001, after being detained at Narita Airport in Japan with a fake passport. As Snyder sees it, Kim Jong-nam stands to be a potent threat to his younger brother, emerging as a vocal critic of the regime.
