Wall Street Journal editors call NKorea actions 'all a bluff

As of late North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been saying and doing aggressive things like having his military shoot targets marked as U.S. soldiers. Aside from acknowledging the bravado and making similar threatening displays with U.S. troops in South Korea, the Obama administration has done little in response.

Editors of the Wall Street Journal are backing up the president on this front...

From a Wednesday editorial:

The Obama Administration has so far avoided the Bush-Clinton negotiations trap, and we hope that continues. While an accident or miscalculation could restart the Korean War, there are also reasons to think the North's acting up is all a bluff. ...

The White House may have back channels to talk quietly to Pyongyang, but its efforts to pressure Kim into better behavior will come to nothing if it caves now and grants formal talks. As Margaret Thatcher once said, this is no time to go wobbly.

The conservative WSJ often sides with the administration on foreign policy matters. It recently wrote in favor of Obama's drone strike policy when many Republicans were criticizing it.
