Kim Jong-un: 'a callow, paper general'

Analysis on North Korea varies from optimism the country could change radically to fears the country could come under Chinese influence which, if lasting, might spark a Cold War between China and the US. Also in this international press review: is Putin's house about to fall down, and is Syria at a turning point? That's the focus for today, Wednesday 28th December, 2011.

The International Herald Tribune has a cartoon on North Korea’s Kim Jong-un: “You’ve got big shoes to fill”.

Joong Ang Daily in South Korea interviews Lee Soo-Hyuk, a South Korean former delegate at six-party talks on North Korea’s nuclear ambitions: “Economic aid won’t tempt North to disarm nukes”.

The Bangkok Post, Thailand has a comment piece by former Japanese Defence Minister Yuriko Koike: “North Korean revolution might not be far off”.

The Moscow Times has a comment piece on Putin by radio political talk show host Yulia Latynina: “Kremlin, Not Protesters, Takes Cues from Hillary”.

US journalist Masha Gessen, has a comment piece in Pakistan’s Dawn.com, first published in The Guardian in the UK. “Putin’s world is falling apart”.

And The Daily Telegraph in the UK headlines: “We are dying …. plea from a besieged city”. The paper is asking whether the encounter between tens of thousands of protesters and Arab League monitors in Homs could be a turning point for Syria.
