Bush Ready For Bold Peaceful Solution In Korea


President Bush on Sunday restated his opposition to a bilateral non-aggression pact with North Korea, shortly after he arrived in the Thai capital for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit.
North Korea has insisted on a non-aggression pact with the United States as part of any deal to abandon its nuclear program, and both China and Russia have urged the United States to make such a commitment.

Bush has flatly ruled out such an agreement and did so again Sunday in Bangkok.

"We will not have a treaty ... that's off the table," he said. "We have no intention of invading North Korea .. we expect North Korea to get rid of her nuclear weapons ambitions. And the progress we're making on this issue is that we've convinced other nations to say the same thing."

Great to see he's keen to keep all our options and work constructively with the DPRK. What an ass. Or, to quote KCNA:

The U.S. talk about such "peaceful solution" can not but be a mockery of the international community.

The nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula is a product of the U.S. hostile policy against the DPRK and the U.S. nuclear threat to it. The key to settling the issue lies in whether the U.S. makes a bold decision to make a switchover in its policy toward the DPRK or not.

What North Korea fails to understand is that "bold" in the Bush lexicon means "war".
