Shocker! North Korea throws tantrum, breaks agreement

"Dear Leader, Jr."

Only a fool or the Clinton State Department (but I repeat myself) couldn’t see this one coming:

North Korea said on Tuesday that it was abandoning an agreement it made in February with the United States, in which it promised to suspend uranium enrichment, nuclear tests and long-range missile tests.

The North Korean Foreign Ministry said that it “resolutely and totally” rejected the United Nations Security Council’s condemnation of its failed rocket launching last week, and that it would continue to launch rockets to try to place satellites into orbit.

The ministry’s statement hinted, but did not make clear, that the North may now conduct a long-range missile or nuclear test.

No longer bound by the deal, “we have thus become able to take necessary retaliatory measures,” the ministry said in the statement, which was carried by the state-run Korean Central News Agency. “The U.S. will be held wholly accountable for all the ensuing consequences.”

The United States had already suspended its side of the deal because of the rocket launching, including 240,000 tons of food aid the United States had promised to the North.

The collapse of the deal cost the United States and the International Atomic Energy Agency a chance to send inspectors into the isolated country for the first time in three years. And analysts said it made further North Korean provocations more likely.

Let’s be honest: North Korea had no intention of keeping the agreement, just as they never had any intention of truly honoring any agreement they’ve made since at least the horribly naive Agreed Framework deal signed under Bill Clinton. North Korea, even under the latest “Dear Leader,” was going to take as much as they could get from the suckers the West while cheating on any deal. Then, when discovered and chastised, they would (again) throw a fit, threaten war, and bargain for more free stuff in return for a promise (soon to be broken) to be good. This time for real. They promise.

North Korea is, after all, a “mountain bandit state;” why should we be surprised when they act like bandits?

So, why’d they break the agreement so soon after signing, instead of cheating in secret? Well, I’m willing to bet the “Sun of the 21st Century” and his coterie of toadies babysitters junior tyrants loyal comrades in Socialism and juche were a bit embarrassed when their latest symbol of Freudian compensation missile exploded and fell into the sea soon after launch. Kind of humiliating for anyone, let alone the world’s largest prison camp masquerading as a nation.

Thus, the proper response was, again, to act like a mountain bandit and bluster and threaten and act scary-crazy, until the other side again gives you what you want. No doubt there will be, as they say, “further provocations.” At least until we agree to appease them one more time.

Lather, rinse, and repeat.

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me for the 2,567th time and you’re the Obama administration…..

  2. Nanc says:

    Can we give the South Koreans a Patriot Missile battery and just shoot down whatever the North send up? Or have we already done that?

  3. Sefton says:

    Vegas odds on how fast the blame is given to Bush?

  4. Tango says:

    I have long held the notion that the DPRK is a mass graveyard. A shame to all the nations – a shame that will eventually be revealed.

  5. Carlos says:

    The last person fooled by DPRK’s latest promise is Obama himself.

    (Lying) Birds of a feather and all that, you know.

    Or, the last person a socialist will ever trust is another socialist.

    Or, he and Kim the Younger are always on the same page, Zero’s just brushing up on crowd control, inducing wails of sorrow at Great Leader’s death and how to make a nation into a huge prison…

    And speaking of toadies, isn’t Duh-1 close to being one of Kim Jong Un’s?

  6. Jay Stevens says:

    The U. S. deployed Patriot to South Korea in 2005.

  7. PE says:

    Being fooled is not a part of Obama’s job. His job is to fool you. All else is folly.

  8. Drew says:

    Does Maddy Halfbright no longer think “of course I’ll respect you in the morning?”


  9. The problem with the missile launch was the fuel mixture’s lack of Viagra.

  10. Kate says:

    I heard someone say that we should just do massive food drops such as the ones done in Berlin during the Cold War to make sure that people get the food and not the Army! Sounds like a way to help the people…and hide a few weapons with it!

    The unarmed masses in NK are starving and survive by eating grass and whatever they can find….while the leaders and Army chow down. So where’s the compassion for these folks, Obama?

    ….oh, their a Socialist state and this kind of thing never happens, in theory!

  11. persecutor says:

    And in an effort to relieve the tensions between the two nations, Dear Leader today announced that he and Dear Leader, Jr. will sit down over a bowl of Yorkshire Terrier pudding and come to an agreement.

  12. Sefton says:

    Vegas odds on how fast the blame is given to Bush?

    I can always count on Oblamer…

    Administration officials also took verbal swipes after North Korea’s unsuccessful missile launch last week, accusing Mr. Bush of having rewarded North Korea with food aid years ago in spite of its nuclear weapons activities.

  13. Carlos says:

    Uh, I guess Duh-1’s short-term memory isn’t as good as it was when he was an affirmative action communist at Hawvud, and he can’t remember that not only was it Mr. Clinton, philandering hubby of his play-all-night SecState, that gave away the farm to the ChiComs in the Nineties, he also gave them all the needed codes to go along with the farm.

    Either the guy is incredibly disingenuous, stuck on stupid or, my choice, both. Of course, when one is a pathological liar to begin with, being disingenuous comes easy, I guess. And having been an affirmative action figure all his life, he sees nothing wrong with being an affirmative action president, either. He apparently figures that’s what all his toadies are for, is to make him look good in spite of himself and his inability to perform at any level in this job.

    And they were the ones saying Palin wasn’t qualified for the office!
