Imagine my surprise. No, really.

The North said naming a vice-minister made a “mockery” of the proposed high-level talks and contravened what had been agreed at a preparatory meeting on Sunday, Kim said.

Kim is a proud boy ! Media should also give proper coverage to NKorea's good behavior :)

If this gets them riled up then there really is little hope for anything but a messy end to the Korean standoff.

Maybe the phone made at Kaesong and so doesn't work properly? Send them a letter? By carrier pigeon? although pigeon probabaly won't make it back as destined for the pot.

"Just like how SK is controlled by the US."

Just like how Japan is also controlled by the US.

So ... according to South Korea, the North had objected to Seoul’s nomination of a vice minister as its chief delegate, saying it made a “mockery” of the proposed dialogue. Okay, the ball has been tossed back onto Seoul's side of the court. Now it has to find a "full" minister to be its chief delegate. Probably North Korea will then have to find a new reason not to negotiate ... but at least the ball will be on the North's side of the court. And the game continues ...

NK makes a mockery out of anything. They need to grow up and get real.

His father believed that Japanese were decendants of the Korean peninsula. Better for North Korea to be pro Japan than Pro South Korea since they once fight each other until death. They can put a hot line in Tokyo and ask for advice to switch their government to parlamentarism keeping Kim as the State representative. He can name a minister and keep only veto power.

It's not surprising that the pudgy Un is behaving this way. But you have to wonder what his game is. This certainly isn't going to help with foreign relations. Is he still pandering to the military?

In the long run it doesn't matter though. NK is nothing more than a pimple on China's face.
