    Phrases like “biblical bile” in the North Korean briefing need to be avoided. If it is then the Kim’s words will suggest it. Don’t need to bash readers over the head with it.

    @fapps: I’ll copy my message from below, and paste it onto WikiProject Global Affairs. Thanks.

    @fapps: Thanks for the suggestion. I read Chinese and Japanese, but not Korean, so I think it would be useful for someone with knowledge of Korean, and experience in the country, to write such a story.

    The launch of long-range missiles by North Korea has raised concerns in many quarters: D. Trump has threatened to use ”fire and fury”, Beijing has for the first time officially voiced criticism against Pyongyang, Moscow has remained cautious. The only declared target is Guam, which US anti-missile defence is confident it can protect.

    This new ”missile crisis” is mostly reported from a Western perspective. It would be interesting to write a story centered on the countries and populations who would be most seriously affected in South Korea, Japan (and possibly China), whether by an incident involving a North Korean missile launch (South Korea, Japan, China, Russia), or by preemptive measures under consideration (South Korea, Japan, US).

    Here are just a few non-Western sources (in English, but it would be useful to dig deeper into the local language primary news outlets):
    – Chosun Ilbo: President MOON Jae-In opposes deployment of US nuclear arms in his country, http://english.chosun.com/site/data/html_dir/2017/09/15/2017091500805.html
    – The Korea Times: President MOON says dialogue with North is ”impossible”, http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www2/index.asp
    – Asahi Shimbun: Statement by ONODERA Itsunori, Japanese defence minister, http://www.asahi.com/ajw/articles/AJ201709150048.html
    – Yomiuri Shimbun (Japan’s largest circulation), English version: Behind the scenes, North Korea’s relentless nuclear advance, http://the-japan-news.com/news/article/0003934204

    By the way, the first 2 articles above underline the South Korean president’s conundrum: he recognizes that dialogue is impossible with the North, but at the same time he rules out the stationing of US nuclear arms in South Korea.

      Vesigond – we’ll be sure to look at that but please don’t forget that you can pitch stories in WikiProject Global Affairs for consideration too. (Just thinking that puts more eyes on it)
