North Korea sending team to the Winter Olympics

It has been a while since I wrote anything to do with the olympics on here, but I was interested to see how the imminent winter games in Pyongyang are now being used to thaw hostilities in Korea. The north is going to send a delegation to the games in the south, the first move of it's kind in years. I think it's quite awesome how these big, global sports events have a practical, political effect. I'm not particularly interested in who wins what medal, but in the Olympic Games as a force for good in the world. It may only be a delegation being sent to an Olympic Games, but who knows what a chain of events a simple act like this might set off? Is it too naive to hope that the simple act of playing sport together could lead to something far more profound?
