    Red face 'War is inevitaber" says North Korean general

    Dear Reader's great grobal pran for conquest comes arive!

    Oct. 19, 2006 If President Bush continues to ask North Korea to "kneel," war "will be inevitable," and it would begin on the Korean Peninsula, North Korean Gen. Ri Chan Bok told "Good Morning America" anchor Diane Sawyer, in an exclusive interview inside North Korea.

    President Bush wants the country to kneel down, Ri said, and North Koreans cannot agree with that.

    Sawyer visited the general in a ceremonial hall.

    For decades, the general has been in charge of the flash point demilitarized zone, the 2.5-mile stretch between North Korea and South Korea.

    In the interview, Sawyer read Ri the president's statement warning of grave consequences for North Korea should the nation continue nuclear testing or transfer nuclear technologies to third-party countries.

    She asked whether the general had a reaction.

    Ri told Sawyer that he didn't tend to believe what Bush said.

    "Can the general guarantee or reassure the American people that this nuclear information will not be passed to terrorists?" Sawyer asked.

    "We have nuclear weapons to defend our country and our people," he said.

    The general said he could guarantee that these weapons were to defend North Korea and not to earn money or be sent to third parties. He added that North Korea did not have a relationship with terrorist organizations.

    Sawyer asked him what the words of North Korea meant when leaders said there would be a merciless blow in response to any sanctions.

    Ri said he couldn't say specifically, but pointed out that North Korea had short- and long-range missiles.

    Sawyer asked whether the country's nuclear technology was weaponized and whether it could be loaded on missiles.

    He would not say whether he could nuclearize the country's weapons, but said to be assured that the country had the facilities to deliver nuclear weapons.

    "North Korea is ready," he said.

    When talking about the possibility of talks, the general said the country didn't care if the talks were bilateral or six-party, but he said the sanctions must be lifted for progress to begin.

    He said if all this happened, then North Korea would be ready to stand down on its nuclear program.

    The general also had a message for President Bush.

    "He keeps talking about North Korea as the 'axis of evil,' as an outpost of tyranny, as an unacceptable government that makes its own people hungry," he said.

    "We would ask him please to stop making these bad comments on our nation, and I'm speaking not just for myself but for all people in this country."

    Well considering 2 million of your own people starved to death in the early 2000's and millions more have perished in your gulag prisons... I think the answer is no.

    N. Korea's nuclear possession never acceptable: Abe


    Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Friday that North Korea's possession of nuclear weapons can never be permissible.
    Abe made the remark in phone talks with Philippine President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, following Pyongyang's assertion on Oct. 9 that it had successfully conducted an underground nuclear test.
    He sought Manila's cooperation in urging the reclusive state to drop its nuclear ambitions.
    Abe also asked the Philippines to support Japan's efforts to solve the issue of North Korea's past abduction of Japanese people, saying that the abduction issue is as important as the nuclear problem.
    In reply, Arroyo said that her country totally backs Japan's position. The Philippines has diplomatic relations with North Korea.
    She also expressed support for Japan's bid to become a permanent member of the U.N. Security Council. (Jiji Press)

    I'm sorry, I think we are attaching way too much importance to the 'threat' NK poses. So they did some (small) nuclear tests. Now what?? Do they plan to use them as weapons and if so, against whom and for what purpose? This is just posturing by an egomaniac dictator who wants to prove that his weapon is just as good as yours. It's all about saving face and all that other 'honour system' stuff which is so important in Far Eastern culture. Now if NK was planning to support it's commie neighbour in any China/US standoff that would be another matter, but at the moment China has never been in closer entente cordiale with 'the west' with a MASSIVE economic boom (did you know there are more mobile phones in China than in the US/Europe combined?). Just wait and see what they lay on for the showcase Beijing Olympics.

    Now it's possible that NK wants to form some kind of strategic alliance with another 'axis of evil' regime like Iran which is also in the verge of a nuclear capacity (if not already) but I really don't think that a hardcore communist atheist dictator and a crazy Islamic fundamentalist former taxi driver are going to have much in common.

    It's generally accepted that Al Quaida and other Islamic fundie nutters are using (nuclear) Pakistan as a safe haven for their training camps etc and the authorities are turning a blind eye. That would appear to be a much greater threat IMO.
