What a timing!

Seoul - North Korea and Iran on Thursday signed an agreement with the aim of promoting cultural and scientific exchange between the countries, press reports said.

The planned cooperation is to run from this year until 2012, according to Pyongyang's official Korean Central News Agency, which did not provide details of the programme.

Iran's Vice-Foreign Minister Mohammad Ali Fathollahi travelled to Pyongyang to sign the deal with Jon Yong Jin, vice-chairman of the Korean Committee for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries, the report said.

Very same day when reports show that North Korea really sunk South Korean corvette few weeks ago, and when Iran is starting large military drills in Hormuz strait - deal with these two countries are done.

What really connects Iran and North Korea is China and Russia. What ever they make with bilateral deals, its also a clear message that these SCO proxies are cooperating closely. I think today North Korea has even less friends than yesterday - But Iran still shows their friendship in public!

What we see here is that, if we cant give credit for Israel or USA from playing down tensions in ME - sure we can not giving any credits to Iran either. All sides are rushing to great conflict, and there seems to be little to avert that from happening.

at any rate everyday that passes iran and north korea become more dangerous.

i had a hard time believing that frigate was an accident.

china and russia will sit back and let things play out and make billions on arms sales if there ever is a us conflict with either iran or north korea.

alot of it is saber rattling alot of it isnt iran had there way there would be no israel or us. north would invade south korea.

with our current government its going to get worse and if either country attacked us in any way there would be no retaliation.

im not a war monger but something needs to be done and it needs to be more than sanctions.

as much as china owns of the us right now it does need to think that if something bad happens they are out billions.

not one new nuclear weapon has been built since reagan meanwhile the rest of the world modernizes and advances their options and the us cuts its arsenal.

there is something seriously wrong with this picture.
