Ever dumber questions...

...from me.

I know I should not expose my ignorance in this manner (You have done it in so many other ways, why worry? - Editor) but has anyone explained to the Abe Cabinet that because the United States of America and the Republic of South Korea have signed a Free Trade Agreement--and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea has established a Special Economic Zone in Kaesong--and a rail link has just opened connecting Kaesong to the South that will complement the existing road link--it is possible that large quantities of goods manufactured or assembled in North Korea are going soon to be loaded upon ships for tariff-free export to the United States?

Wouldn't that be a Schieffer-Abe tête-à-tête worth having on DVD?

In fact,South Korea asked the US to extend FTA benefits to goods manufactured in Kaesong. How did that come out in the agreement? Does anyone in the MSM know? Mr. Abe is not the only one who is concerned; there are people in Congress who want to turn the screw on North Korea at every opportunity.
