North Korea’s official news agency today issued a statement reiterating the nation’s willingness to suspend all nuclear testing in return for a peace treaty to end the Korean War, and the cessation of US military exercises aimed at them.

Tensions have been rising since North Korea tested another atomic weapon earlier this month, the fourth such test the nation has performed. They claimed it was a hydrogen bomb, though experts agree it was almost certainly not.

The State Department immediately spurned the latest proposal, saying the military exercises would continue because the US has “commitments” to South Korea to keep having them. The annual military exercises have fueled annual tensions with North Korea, tending to end in mid-Spring.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have been saying this for years.

The US government, however, must feel it is in its interests to avoid a true peace process,and continue its threatening stance toward North Korea.

Such a stance is great for the potential of war, and all the money the military industrial complex makes from war; it is not, however, great for the present and future Americans who wind up paying the price, in blood and money, to fight that war.

Why is logic the most impossible thing to embrace for the US government?!?! Sometimes, that inability just boggles the minds of thinking people.
