Well guys, so much for that idea.... I know Calgarian and others were hopeful, but this is absurd.
So now South Korea has to ask really nice-like and say pretty please or something? They've threatened to repeatedly turn Seoul into something like a
charcoal briquette and they want Seoul to concede attitude points? This has to come before
they'll even meet to begin to discuss trying to
avoid the outbreak of total regional war and perhaps much more?
Communist state says it will not talk unless South Korea abandons confrontational posture
The Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea said it would not talk unless Seoul abandoned its confrontational posture, in a statement
released through the official news agency. The South's unification ministry described that as a preliminary response, and said it would watch
The remarks came as the US secretary of state, John Kerry, reiterated Washington's keenness to see a return to dialogue, following weeks of tension
on the peninsula. The North has issued threat after threat and pulled workers out of the Kaesong joint industrial complex.
Okay, they're really hitting the happy sauce in Pyongyang or something. This is just a bit silly and surreal to hear all the way around. But wait!
Japan's foreign minister, Fumio Kishida, said North Korea had to honour its commitment to earlier deals on its weapons programmes and on
returning kidnapped foreigners.
Yeah... As if that's likely to happen any time soon. They don't even fully acknowledge the extent they HAVE kidnapped foreign nationals to train
their own people for infiltration and intelligence work.
Anyone else get the feeling that ALL sides are pretty much playing games by setting preconditions and qualifications that they know, in advance, no
one involved will ever agree to?
Let's also recall..John Kerry swiftly (couldn't resist..) announced on this trip that the U.S. would flat out not tolerate a nuclear North Korea.
Hey, way to go there John!
That's being the top diplomat! Set ultimatums that contradict the public statements of absolutes the other side has
made ..before anyone even gets to the room to have a chat.
* I think someone needs to remind Secretary of State
Kerry that he didn't get his hoped for Secy Defense position and this isn't the job to
be making such statements. He's supposed to be the DEAL maker, not breaker. That's DOD's job.
