north korea
  • The fuss over North Korea still overlooks the fact that in 1994 NK was hours away from being bombed by a US keen to destroy its nascent nuclear plans. NK agreed to withdraw those plans in exchange for aid and recognition. It got some aid but no recognition. So it went back to nuclear development, which even now could probably be stopped if the US fulfilled its original 1994 promise.

    In the meantime it resorts to belligerent threats, probably in the hope of being able to deter another 1994 performance by the US.

    In next weeks Japan Times I hope to expand on this topic.

  • Do you think bombing at Boston yesterday was a part of North Korea issue by them? or Middle east people tried explain something??
