Was it not Kim Jong-un that made an officer stand on an X and while he dropped a mortar on his head for getting drunk during Daddy's official
mourning period? Perhaps he is not such a nice kid.............
He wants democracy? I don't think so. He wants to get free food and continue to use his own resources to let him build his evil army of
Apparently one of the platforms South Korea's new president ran on was to reestablish friendly communications with N. Korea...
South Korea's president-elect, Park Geun-hye, was elected on a platform of restarting talks with the North if it committed to placing
denuclearisation on the agenda. Mr Kim's reference in the speech to previous inter-Korean joint declarations may highlight the North's desire to
re-establish joint economic projects and humanitarian aid cancelled in the wake of the North's most recent attacks on its Southern neighbour -- the
sinking of the corvette Cheonan and the deadly shelling of Yeonpyeong Island in 2010.
I think it'll definitely be a test of both countries' diplomacy considering Jong-Un stated he wanted N. Korea to grow in the modernization of
weapons. Hopefully it doesn't result in more back and forth nonsense.
I'd love to see both North and South come together as one country. They need to hug it out.
Really? I find that hard to believ. People sneaking out of NK and sneaking back in? Sorry, it's just not likely. It maybe has happened, but it would
be even harder to sneak in, and they would face the possibility of being turned in by everyone they tried to give info to as the population is
brainwashed and would probably want whatever reward they might receive. Not to mention the danger of being caught would be higher coming in and the
Sorry nothing personal, I just doubt anyone sneaking out is sneaking back in. I've actually heard refugees feel so alienated and out of place that
they often are not happy on the outside, better off, but not fitting in.

Just when the US overtakes Russia to become the worlds largest producer of Natural Gas; only to be followed a few years later to overtake Saudi Arabia
to be the worlds largest producer of oil? If anything, the US is about to enter a new golden age of economic prosperity. I do not see a collapse on
In an indication of how "fracking" is reshaping the global energy picture, the International Energy Agency today projected that the United
States will overtake Saudi Arabia as the world's largest oil producer by 2017.
And within just three years, the United States will unseat Russia as the largest producer of natural gas.
Explanation: Why should I move ... I am in Australia and OL is an Australian.
1stly I PERSONALLY believe that Oz is ANNEXED by the USA ... due to places all Aussie politicians can't go [pine gap] and due to US Marines being
stationed in Darwin.
If you agree that Oz is annexed then yes by default I am an american ... in which case why didn't I get a vote in the recent USA federal elections?
[please answer this via u2u ok .. no need to derail this thread]
If you don't agree that Oz is annexed by the USA ... then I don't need to go anywhere!
2ndly OL is a 'BITTER COMMUNIST' ... as a commie I don't believe in fiat currency .. I don't believe in money at all. And I am bitter because I
don't like communism .. I'd rather be an anarcho capitalist .. without the capitalism!
I believe in 'self sufficency' which KILLS trade and economies ok.
3rdly Giving somebody an opportunity does not mean one has to join them.
4th I am in no way asking anybody to forget the past history involved ... but I do suggest that some forgiveness be employed.
5th It is neither up to the USA or Australia, or any other non Korean countries, to agree or not agree!
It is an offer by NK extended to SK ... and although we get to discuss it on ATS ... neither of our countries has any legitimate direct say in the
Personal Disclosure: You may remember this song ...
This is an interesting statement from Kim Jong Un. One assumes his father's and grandfather's backers are on the same page with him. If so, his
statement would not be made lightly and would carry the backing of some of the most powerful military men in the region. It will be interesting to see
what the follow up to this is and whether Uncle Sam gets involved in telling South Korea what to do next.
A draw down of tension in the region is long overdue and would be welcomed by everyone, each for his own reasons. This will have to go forward like
porcupines making love, very carefully.
