    North Korea tears up agreements

    Link
    BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | North Korea tears up agreements

    Just another regime that will not accept treaties that it has signed, supposedly in good faith.
    Remind you of another country?

    So, did they ever adhere to them anyway?

    Considering the U.S. hasn't been up front with it's agreements, I don't blame them.

    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.

    THis has nothing to do with the US. If you read the link in the OP, it is its agreements with the SOuth that the DPRK is going back on now.

    South Korea is aligned with the U.S., the U.S. has not been forthright with their promises. The friend of the enemy is the enemy.

    This is the Asian Culture. It is quite clear.

    I read the article. I didn't see any mention of US violated agreements precipitating this.

    This isn't a matter of Asian culture. I have lived in Asia most of my adult life. This is the matter of a criminal, dictatorial regime.

    It is a matter of Asian Culture, if you truly lived in Asia most of your life you would know that. I lived there for 6 years total in the military and even I could pick that up.

    That's not to say it won't change, but the current generation in power follows this line.

    What, breaking your agreements is a matter of Asian culture? You picked up interesting things while you were here.

    Fact at the time I was there, if your friend breaks an agreement, you can quickly become the enemy if you continue to be friends.

    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.
