BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Brunei — North Korea is willing to hold direct talks with the United States, but only “if the United States sincerely seeks to end the vicious cycle of tensions and hostility” and has no preconditions, its foreign minister said here Tuesday.
“The United States is responsible for pushing the Korean peninsula to the brink of war,”
After a meeting here Monday with his Chinese counterpart, Secretary of State John F. Kerry praised China for what he called “very firm statements and very firm steps” insisting that North Korea give up its nuclear weapons program.

You know, during that last debacle in March (wasn't it March?) I have to say I was really beginning to wonder if an all out war would begin with North Korea.. In other words, I bought their rhetoric and I don't think it will happen ever again. The smack talk couldn't have been worse than I've ever personally witnessed from that region.. yet they did nothing but keep talking and finally shut up.
