    I will admit, maybe Asian culture changed since I was there in 2002.

    But it was that way when I was there, both in Korea and in Japan.

    Times change and maybe it has now, so I will concede if it has since I was there.
    What agreement did South Korea break?

    Are you actually pretending that the DPRK is friends with either Japan or South Korea?

    Did I say SK broke an agreement? I said their friends did (aka the U.S.) Or Did you miss my comment of the friends of my enmey is my enemy comment? My guess is you did.

    Did I say they were friends? I think you need to work on your English. I was referring to the U.S. being friends with the S.K. government. Take a look at my previous comments.

    If English isn't your primary language I apologize. But take a look at it nonetheless.

    Except that you have not described why the DPRK is angry at the US. When the DPRK blames something on the US, they typically say it rather directly or essentially call the south stool pigeons for the US. I have not seen any evidence of either in this situation. It seems that they are directing their ire squarely at the South, and not Japan or the USA.

    Did I say they were friends? I think you need to work on your English. I was referring to the U.S. being friends with the S.K. government. Take a look at my previous comments.
    You implied it with your comparison in an earlier post.


    "The group of traitors has already reduced all the agreements reached between the north and the south in the past to dead documents," the committee in charge of inter-Korean affairs said in a statement carried by the state-run Korean Central News Agency.
    The "group of traitors" is a reference to South Korea's elected government, NOT the USA.

    Just another regime that will not accept treaties that it has signed, supposedly in good faith.
    Remind you of another country?
    Sounds like North Korea is getting desperate for attention.

    It sucks, yes, but it is another example of what happens when the U.S. doesn't go up with it's end of the bargain.
    What end of what bargain has the US not lived up to?

    You've really missed out on the conservatives on this board saying they're glad that Bush disregarded international treaties and that foreign opinion wasn't important and that they could care less what other countries thought of us; we only act in our interest and our interest alone?

    Not that I am a conservative who would do this, but how does this relate to the DPRK?

    But, of course, this has to do with the US...don't you know? It's only because of the imperialistic US ambitions that the Norks ever decided to pursue nukes and then renege on multiple diplomatic efforts.

    Look, that poster is simply one of these "Blame America First" people that always finds the US at fault and always grants unquestionable benefit of the doubt to two-bit dictators like Kim-Il.

    I haven't seen these so-called "conservatives" saying such things. I have seen them, me included, though, arguing that:

    1) some individuals are not convered by specific treaty provisions;

    2) foreing opinion ain't important enough nor should it be important enough to cause the US to abandon specific foreign policy interests and objectives; and

    3) our international popularity should not be the basis upon which US foreign policy interests are developed, pursued, or implemented.

    Look, unlike you people I don't support subjugating the sovereignty of the US to the bad faith of other nations/groups and to a popularity contest.
