Canadian Elections: Dead heat between Conservatives and Liberals, even Paul Martin, liberal leader is conciding that it will be a minority government and is now shoring up his side as much as he can, all this after blowing a 13 point lead over the Conservatives.
France: The Chirac/Sarkozy feud is heating up! Chirac basically forced to give way to Sarkozy can have a shot at being the new leader of the UMP party.

He is one of the most popular politicians in France and it boils down to this for many people in the UMP and even other parties.
Chirac: Old and Busted.
Sarkozy: New Hotness.

on the improving ties between both countries if only because of how ignorance plays into. You have a younger generation of Koreans who have not been taught the history of the conflict between the north and the south,and think that North Korea is not a military threat anymore the government for the last couple of years has pulled a french in doing everything not to offend the north. So now you have people looking at the U.S. as the reason why there is no unification.
