Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. More problems to deal with for a lame-duck administration who still think the rest of the wrold should beat to its tune...

     
  2. I admit to wondering at the time the agreement was reached whether the US would ever accept any level of verification as stringent enough. The objective always seemed more about bringing down the Kim regime rather than disarming it.

    Sadly, the US is renowned worldwide for getting others to do their bidding with promises of the largesse of the US as payment - The US quite often welches on the deal once their aims are achieved.
     
  4. Ah borrocks, brudddy Amelican riars sripped one up us again...
     
  5. 20 million people were effectivly sold out into indefinate Orwellian slavery by this little deal. You better be dam sure it's going to work out better than last time when hey forgot to mension their plutonium enrichment program.
     
  6. Then the US shouldn't have signed the deal. Changing the terms unilaterally after the fact is one of the less likeable aspects of US foreign policy at the moment. You do, after all, need to have a reputation for honesty if you want to succeed in a nest of thieves.

    I take it the N Koreans have collected on their shiploads of grain or oil or whatever and rherefore feel free to welch on the deal. Sadly, the only way to fix this is to bring NK to its knees. Otherwise it's Danegeld.
