Apparently, the Korea Times knew that no one was going to tell the public the truth soon. They published an editorial called, “Back to future.” In the article, the newspaper welcomed the possibility that Lee Myung-bak might soon return to the negotiating table with North Korea.
“It was a welcome about-face, thinking the commander-in-chief had seemed ready for a war up until only days ago,” said the Korea Times.
The newspaper also bemoaned the events of the past month or so.
“Like a century ago, the Korean Peninsula has become an arena for a power contest for four surrounding powers,” said the Korea Times.”
