North Korean conditions for nuclear talks

North Korea has announced conditions it says would lead to negotiations with America and the subsequent denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

Just a week after it threatened ‘all out war’ with its southern neighbour, the regime in North Korea said that talks about de-nuclearisation could begin if the United States first removed its nuclear weapons from the region.

Listing their conditions, the statement from the country’s National Defence Commission said: “First, [the Americans and South Koreans] should immediately stop all their provocative acts against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and apologise for all of them.”

“Second, they should give formal assurances before the world that they would not stage again such nuclear war drills to threaten or blackmail the DPRK.

“Third, they should make a decision to withdraw all nuclear war means from South Korea and its vicinity and give up their attempt to reintroduce them as their immediate duty.

“If the US and the southern enemies genuinely want dialogue and negotiation, they should take these steps,” the statement added.

West explosion: Bomb or not?

Boston bomber home bred?

In the first comments about who could be the culprit in the Boston bombing, ALL experts warned about jumping to the conclusion about who is responsible. But I find it really interesting that they more or less at the same time pointed their finger at home bred right wing terrorists.

I ask my self why they do this, and the answer is, in my oppinion, that thy really fear that the terror originates from a different and more dangerous source.

Could it be Al Quaida? Sure… But what would be even more terrifying was that the clues could point out North Korea as the ill doer. The fact that no one has claimed responsibility, is an indicator that this heinous act was not committed by a typical terrorist organisation. In order to gain effect of their attack, they would claim responsibility. That leaves Al Quaida out.

At he moment there are, in my oppinion two possible perpetrators. One of course is, as all commentators point out, home bred terrorists.

The other is North Korea. They would typically operate by proxy operators, or hired guns, if you like. So even if this is committed by a solo terrorist, it could be the work of North Kores.

So why is everybody so anxious to point their fingers away from the most obvious source of this evil doing? The answer to that is simple: Proof that North Korea really is behind the bombing would mean war.
