Feeling the pain in Pyongyang

It might be a plan for succession.

Or it might be that someone has hacked off Dear Leader.

Regardless, political changes are afoot in North Korea, and they come on the heels of a warning from Pyongyang.

It says there will be "serious" consequences if the United Nations pursues sanctions against North Korea unless it is allowed to review the evidence being presented, according to this report from AFP.

Those sanctions stem from the torpedoing of a South Korean warship, which killed almost 50 people. Seoul has blamed Pyongyang for the incident.

One indication that the quickly icing relations between North and South might be easing is that the Seoul is sending some humanitarian aid north.
