Obama to have broader diplomatic issues in mind during DMZ trek

Staring at North Korea through binoculars at the heavily fortified land border with South Korea, U.S. President Barack Obama will attempt to send a message not only to Pyongyang but also to Teheran, another recalcitrant regime in the eyes of western officials, a U.S. newspaper said Saturday.
Obama's trip to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), which former President Bill Clinton called "the scariest place on Earth" during his own visit, is apparently aimed at boosting his image as the "sole commander-in-chief" of the U.S., beset with a host of thorny diplomatic issues, including North Korea, Afghanistan, Syria and Iran, according to Politico.
