Good job OBA : North Korea says all agreements with South are void

This is what happens when friendly chaps, such as Kim JE, realize the OBA does not have the balls to do what's right.

Quote:
SEOUL: North Korea sharpened its hostility toward South Korea on Friday by abruptly declaring that it was scrapping a nonaggression pact and all other agreements the two Koreas have signed to ease military and political tensions on the divided Korean Peninsula.

North and South Korea stand on 'the brink of war' - Telegraph
In a significant escalation of tensions, North Korea cancelled all military and political agreements after accusing Seoul of aggressive posturing.

Pyongyang's decision to nullify all accords increases the prospect of an armed confrontation on the Peninsula, where over a million soldiers face each other across the Demilitarised Zone that divides the two Koreas.

North Korea's Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea blamed the South for pushing the two countries "to the brink of a war".

Pyongyang said it now regarded the maritime border between the two states as "void". The last time the two countries clashed militarily was at the disputed frontier in the Yellow Sea, when their navies fought a deadly gun battle in June 2002.

From the linked articles...


But the North has reserved its greatest ire for South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, who it has described as a "traitor".

Pyongyang remains furious over Mr Lee's decision last year to end the so-called "sunshine policy", in which North Korea received unconditional economic aid in an effort to encourage reconciliation.

Mr Lee has cut the amount of aid given to the North and insists that will continue until progress is made on disarming Pyongyang's nuclear arsenal.


____________


"We will see more tension in western waters," said Lee Byong Chul, senior fellow at the Institute for Peace and Cooperation, a nonpartisan policy advisory body based in Seoul. "It doesn't appear that it will just end up as empty words from the North."

He predicted that North Korea will focus on improving ties with the Obama administration, while snubbing President Lee.

Wow, a week and half in office, and he already owns the Korean penisula, way to go!

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

I have a feeling this has less to do with Obama than with Kim's psychosis such that he raises an argument because he can, given the change in administration.

The one good thing about a democracy is that at least we elect our nut jobs. Most often they are more entertaining than dangerous.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

I think he would be a little old to run in 2016 but I'm sure he would be flattered that you asked.

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
