The United States will never be able to resort to military means to end the North Korean nuclear crisis, South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun said on July 7.

The standoff over Pyongyang’s nuclear ambitions pits the world’s most stubborn country, North Korea, against the country with the strongest voice in the world, the United States, and therefore a resolution is inherently complicated, Roh said.

“But neither side has the freedom to take the situation to a breakdown,” Roh told senior South Korean journalists at the presidential Blue House.

Under no circumstances can the North choose nuclear weapons, and under no circumstances can the United States choose military means,” Roh said.

The United States has said it harbors no hostile intent, but it generally does not rule out any option to ensure the North does not use or enhance its declared nuclear arsenal. The key to the nuclear problem lies between the North and the United States, making a summit between the two Koreas unlikely soon, Roh said, when asked whether he would be willing to meet with the North’s leader, Kim Jong-il.

“My assessment is it would be difficult for a summit under the circumstances to be successful,” Roh said.

Well said Mr. South Korean President, but news flash, the US has no intentions to use military force against North Korea. Obviously, you sir, should know this. Hello?!

And if one wishes to contend otherwise, please produce such findings that would surely indicate that the US does plan to. Bear in mind, contingency plans do not count. Why? Because even the South Koreans have "contingency plans" against North Korea.

Have a good day.
