Philharmonic in North Korea, Iran Nuclear Sanctions,

Front Page: Philharmonic, Iran, Dodd to Endorse

  • The New York Philharmonic performed in North Korea yesterday. The musicians represented the largest delegation of Americans on North Korean soil since the end of the Korean War. Coinciding with a visit from U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who was there to discuss North Korea's nuclear disarmament, the event began with both the Korean national anthem, and the Star Spangled Banner. Some have drawn parallels between the orchestra's visit to North Korea, and the ping-pong players who went to China in the 1970s, and their "ping-pong" diplomacy.
  • European countries are swiftly developing incentives to present to Iran, after the country declared sanctions will not stop its uranium enrichment program. At the same time at the United Nations, Iran's ambassador said that his country will continue to defy Security Council demands to halt the program because the documents submitted as evidence of Iran's effort to develop weapons were "forgeries." The United States is not opposed to the European incentives plan, but will not join in, standing by sanctions instead.
  • Senator Chris Dodd is set to endorse Barack Obama this morning. A former candidate himself, Dodd waited to endorse until his home state of Connecticut had voted. A new poll released in Texas shows a virtual tie between Democratic candidates Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton. Though Obama collected 50 percent to Clinton's 46 percent, the results are within the margin of error indicating a tight contest. The Democratic candidates are set to debate in Ohio tonight ahead of next Tuesday's critical primaries.

Iran isn't such a "little country" They are a threat and they need to be dealt with accordingly. :)

"European countries are swiftly developing incentives to present to Iran" - Nothing like rewarding someone for not listening. I hope the incentives include a giant bag of skittles and a private concert by Amy Winehouse and Mike Huckabee (though I don't believe they announced tour dates yet.) I think the key to this being successful will be getting Jimmy Carter involved. I'd stop my uranium enrichment for Skittles, Winehouse and Huckabee presented by Jimmy Carter. :)
