Yea, what a crock of %&@#. We all know that Kim Jong Il is lying through his tiny teeth. There is no way he's sorry for what he's done, I don't believe it. There are two possible scenarios at play here.
1. He could very well be suffering from the economic sanctions.
2. His communist country cannot weaponize the nuclear reation.
My vote is for a combination of the two.
It's funny how when China, SKorea, and Australia put a squeeze on you, things start to go wrong. We all stopped food imports while China went beyond the measures of the UN sanctions and halted all financial transactions into the North; literally shutting down the economy within hours.
I'm quite confident that NKorea is regretting their actions because they have failed. Kim has realized the intricacies of having a nuclear arsenal and they're far from it. Breitbart reports:
Kim told Chinese State Councilor Tang Jiaxuan that "we have no plans for additional nuclear tests," Yonhap news agency reported, citing an unnamed diplomatic source in Beijing.
Kim also told the Chinese that "he is sorry about the nuclear test," the mass-circulation Chosun Ilbo daily reported, citing a diplomatic source in China. The North Korean leader also raised the possibility the country would return to arms talks.
"If the U.S. makes a concession to some degree, we will also make a concession to some degree, whether it be bilateral talks or six-party talks," Kim was quoted as telling a Chinese envoy, the newspaper reported.
No. We will not make a concession. You began this by testing nuclear explosions, by spewing anti-American rhetoric, and by having disregarded our requests. I have no reason to trust you again, much less accept your apology.
Of course the media loves you again. They act as if your apology is sincere; they make you out to be a mistaken, nice leader. I expect nothing more from the MSM. This BS has gone on long enough, let's snuff out the embers before a fire starts.
