    North Korea Realizes Something...

    ...B----ing and Moaning doesn't make for a good foreign policy.
    We will go to the negotiating table anytime if there are mature conditions for the six-party talks thanks to the concerted efforts of the parties concerned in the future," the state news agency KCNA quoted Kim as saying.

    The agency said Pyongyang "would as ever stand for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and its position to seek a peaceful solution to the issue through dialogue remains unchanged."

    The six-party talks include North and South Korea, China, Japan, Russia and the United States.

    North Korea announced on February 10 that it would withdraw from the talks and declared for the first time that it possessed nuclear weapons, blaming a hostile U.S. stance for the impasse.

    But, in what appears to be a reversal, Pyongyang said Tuesday that its government "has never opposed the six-party talks but made every possible effort for their success." (that one got me laughing, ed.)

    The NorKors thought they could scare us. Oops. Looks like that one didn't pan out. Now they are desperately trying to get the talks going again, perhaps in hope that food aid will increase. Or perhaps they simply didn't like being ignored, and felt that at least at the talks they got some attention. Either way, I predicted this earlier. It didn't even take weeks, either.
