Top 3 International Stories I’m Watching Today

1) North Korea is nuclear. 3rd test run this morning—not that it should come as any surprise. The big story here really is what China will do. I will giving more thoughts on this story and its consequences tomorrow at 10pm EST at goldwatergal.com

2) State of the Union tonight given by re-elected President Barack Obama. (He might even have comments on story #1)

3) Tunisia turmoil: President’s party threaten to quit government if certain officials don’t resign. More protest and clashes. New government of technocrats discussed. Revolutionaries reflect on how the changes they sought in the Arab Spring have not come about.
