Still crazy after all these years

U.S. officials say North Korea hasn’t changed it ways


 

As a North Korean envoy heads to the U.S. for negotiations about his country’s nuclear program, U.S. officials are warning that the rogue nation is still a severe military threat. U.S. defence secretary Robert Gates says North Korea is encouraging nuclear proliferation by selling weapons to anyone willing to buy them, and it’s believed that the country has the capability to build at least six of its own atomic bombs. However, both sides are stressing the importance of a diplomatic resolution, and North Korea has recently softened some of its more hard-line positions. The country has recently released American and South Korean detainees and expressed a willingness to restart six-nation nuclear talks.
