North Korea Wants A Peace Treaty

North Korea cajoles, threatens and extorts to get what it wants. It does not want a peace treaty. It wants a continued existence with Kim Jong-Un as its head:

North Korea on Saturday rejected the idea of resuming talks to end its nuclear programme, saying previous such attempts ended in failure, and reiterated its demand that Washington come to the table to negotiate a peace treaty.

The statement by the North’s foreign ministry came a day after U.S. President Barack Obama and South Korean President Park Geun-hye said in Washington they were open to talks with North Korea on sanctions but that Pyongyang needs to show it was serious about abandoning its nuclear ambition.

“If the United States insists on taking a different path, the Korean peninsula will only see our unlimited nuclear deterrent being strengthened further,” the North’s foreign ministry said in a statement.

North and South Korea remain technically at war under a truce it signed in 1953 with the United States, which led U.N. forces backing the South, and China, which fought for the North.

    The North Koreans know the Iranians got everything they wanted so they are hoping to get the same sort of sweetheart deal.

      The Obama drive through window is closing.

    Who cares .

    • Well, the North Koreans might care.

      And the South Koreans.

      And the Japanese.

      Note how the North Korean foreign minister put things. If he doesn’t get a treaty, maybe the North will get some more nukes.

      That doesn’t sound like peace.

    Isn’t Obama being racist by favoring the Iranian sand monkeys?
    Don’t the Norks deserve the same deal?

    We should cut off their food and laugh as all of them starve to death screaming in agony. If they launch a single missile erase the country with nuclear bombardment.

    • No.

      Give the North Koreans power to drag out Kim Fatty and gut with a rusty iron hook.

      Then, Korean back bacon.

      Then, peace in our time.
