SEOUL, Aug. 19 (Yonhap) -- In a departure from its past policy, North Korea continues to keep silent on joint military exercises South Korea and the U.S. launched Monday, a possible move analysts say may reflect its wish to keep alive the flow of dialogue with Seoul.

Pyongyang, which escalated tensions and made itself a virtual pariah state by detonating its third atomic device in February, has remained mum on the Ulchi Freedom Guardian (UFG) that kicked off earlier in the day for a 12-day run.
this is not like Un or has he learned his lesson ? I doubt that he is just waiting for the right time to open his mouth and insert foot.

Un is probably distracted with something else...and the military advisers just forgot to mention it to him.

someone will probably call him up in the middle of the night: "The Americans are attacking, look at the armada headed toward you....you must stop them at once!!!"

Then he'd call Denis Rodman..."Yo bro...I need a solid"
War would be averted...Kim and Rodman saved the world !!!!




Okay sarcasm over, sorry for absolutely zero contribution to this thread...but I still thank you for the work you do, don't mind my attempt at humor.

Disclaimer noted; I could be right though...hmmmmmmmm

SEOUL, Aug. 25 (Yonhap) -- North Korean leader Kim Jong-un observed a maneuver exercise of a newly built warship, the North's state media said Sunday.

According to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) report monitored in Seoul, "(Kim) guided maneuvers of a newly built warship." The date and location of the exercise were not specified.

"He was greatly satisfied to see the high maneuverability and striking capability of the warship," the KCNA said in an English dispatch.

It added that Kim called on "the need to make many multifunctional, well-equipped warships and steadily improve the combat capability of the navy."

The media report said ranking military officers such as Yoon Dong-hyun, Park Jeong-cheon and Kim Myung-sik were present at the exercise.

China's nuclear envoy in Pyongyang unlikely to make significant progress

BEIJING, Aug. 28 (Yonhap) -- The ongoing visit by China's chief nuclear envoy to North Korea is unlikely to produce "significant results" in convincing the North to restart the long-stalled six-party talks aimed at ending Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program, a Chinese expert said Wednesday.

Zhang Liangui, a researcher at the Communist Party of China's main research institute in Beijing, told the China Daily that the trip by Wu Dawei to North Korea appears to be aimed at getting "a clear idea of Pyongyang's attitude on the restarting of the talks."

Wu arrived in Pyongyang on Monday and held talks with North Korea's point man on nuclear issues, First Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan, on Tuesday, the North's state media reported, adding that the two sides "had a friendly talk."

"It is unlikely that Wu's trip will yield significant results, as Pyongyang has been very firm on developing nuclear weapons," the paper quoted Zhang as saying.
Un all talk no action, stalling for what ?? We might see the answer by Thursday

That is what has me concerned.

Attack Syria and three or more opponents open up with everything they have.

The problem is to consider what you would do in the same situation.

Do you meekly wait until it is your turn to be attacked or do you take the best shot you have!

I would take the best shot!

The commission said the time has come for policymakers in Seoul and Washington to pursue initiatives that are conducive for dialogue and peace, and take steps to end Cold War era thinking.

"The United States employed bombers that can deliver nuclear weapons in the UFG drill that kicked off on Sept. 19 and runs through Friday. All nuclear threats must be called off," it said.

BEIJING, Aug. 30 (Yonhap) -- This week's visit by China's chief nuclear envoy to North Korea is expected to have a "pretty positive" effect on the resumption of stalled nuclear talks, a Chinese foreign-policy expert said Friday, amid indications Beijing is accelerating its efforts to revive the six-party talks on the North's nuclear programs.

The Chinese nuclear envoy, Wu Dawei, flew to North Korea on Monday on a trip seen as aimed at re-starting the six-party denuclearization talks that have been stalled since 2008. The forum, launched in 2003, involves the two Koreas, China, the U.S., Japan and Russia.

Wu held talks with North Korea's First Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan who doubles as the country's nuclear envoy. The North's Korean Central News Agency reported without giving any other details except to say that they had "friendly" discussions.

Ruan Zongze, the vice president of the China Institute of International Studies, said the trip by Wu to North Korea "is pretty positive and it's a very timely attempt from the Chinese side to conduct dialogues with our counterparts in the DPRK (North Korea).

"We will do whatever from the Chinese side to contribute to this kind of dialogue," Ruan told Yonhap News Agency in an interview. "We will do some preparations for a kind of resumption of the six-party talks as early as possible."

Syria is loose the war drum stem Briton is backing down no word on France US is taking its sweet time to act , the more time goes by the less likely a war will happen Sanctions and more UN talks... war no.

DPRK might have realized they are at a dead end with the war talk, they where hoping China would back hem in a move er war on US SK but as the links have proved DPRK was mistaken in that reasoning, or hoping US SK would make a move er war over Kaesong that too failed. DPRK does not have the war powers needed to win a SK US war, lose yes, win no.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 5 (Yonhap) -- The Pentagon believes North Korea and Syria may have cooperated on the chemical weapons front as well as the nuclear one, an official said Thursday.

"I think there's been sharing between North Korea and Syria on any number of fronts," George Little, press secretary for the Defense Department, said at a news briefing. "There has been a relationship and an exchange of information between North Koreans and the Syrian regime for some time."

He cited the Al Kibar nuclear facility in Syria, allegedly built with North Korea's help and destroyed by an Israeli strike in 2007.

(ATTN: UPDATES with remarks by Obama, Kerry, other details in last 5 paras; CHANGES dateline; ADDS byline)

By Lee Chi-dong

SEOUL/WASHINGTON, Sept. 6 (Yonhap) -- In a show of strong ties between two of the world's most dangerous regimes in the eyes of U.S. officials, Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad sent a message of greeting to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, according to Pyongyang's state media.

Assad, apparently bracing himself for U.S. military action, extended his "sincere congratulations" to Kim and "the friendly people" of North Korea on the 65th anniversary of the birth of the communist nation, the North's official news agency KCNA said.

In the message delivered Thursday, Assad also "reconfirmed Syria's efforts to strengthen the friendly and cooperative relations" between the two sides, it added.

North Korea is alleged to have contributed to Syria's development and possession of chemical weapons. The Syrian dictatorship is accused of launching a sarin gas attack recently on civilians.

As the Obama administration is gearing up for what it calls a limited strike on Syria, the Assad regime apparently needs to solidify its traditional ties with North Korea and others.

U.S. officials said they can't tolerate Syria's use of chemical weapons, a grave violation of international norms, with North Korea, Iran and terrorist groups watching how Washington handles the issue.

"Failing to respond to this breach of this international norm would send a signal to rogue nations, authoritarian regimes and terrorist organizations, that they can develop and use weapons of mass destruction and not pay a consequence," Obama said at a press conference in St. Petersburg, Russia, after a G-20 summit. The White House released a transcript of his remarks.

Secretary of State John Kerry also sought to convince people of a need for military action on Syria, citing North Korea and Iran.

"I have no doubt that for anyone who wants to see a diplomatic solution to two of the world's most pressing proliferation challenges -- Iran and North Korea -- ask yourselves: Are these two countries more or less likely to plunge ahead with proliferation and provocation if they see Assad's actions go unanswered?" Kerry said in a op-ed piece for the Huffington Post. "I would argue that we all know the answer to this question: They are more likely to do so."

Meanwhile, Obama said he plans to address the American people from the White House on Tuesday.
what is not there is "look out your next"... "help, I'm about to bombed".... "got any nukes to sell"... "Can you keep the US busy "
