Meanwhile in North Korea...

North Korea's state run news agency is demanding that the United States "make a bold decision":

Pyongyang, June 25 (KCNA) -- The United States should drop its unreasonable hostile policy toward the DPRK and withdraw its forces from south Korea at an early date, responding to the just demand of the international community, if it does not want to repeat the miserable defeat it suffered in the 1950s, says Minju Joson in a singed commentary Friday. Recalling that the U.S. 54 years ago hurled one-third of its army, one-fifth of its Air Force and the bulk of its Pacific Fleet into the Korean war and ran the whole gamut of inhuman brutalities such as atrocious massacre and use of germ and chemical weapons against the Korean People, wantonly violating the international law and conventions only to drink a bitter cup of defeat, the commentary goes on:
More than half a century has passed since the gunfire ceased and the Armistice Agreement was signed in Korea. But a durable peace has not been settled on the Korean peninsula and dark clouds of war keep the people in the grip of constant unrest and fear.
The Korean peninsula is left without any legal mechanism to avert the outbreak of another war owing to the hostile policy toward the DPRK and moves to provoke a new war on the part of the U.S. imperialists who systematically scrapped most of the provisions of the Armistice Agreement.
Still more grave is that the U.S. makes no bones about provoking a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula and is pushing ahead with it in a planned manner to seize supremacy over the Asia-Pacific region.
The Bush administration in the first days of its office listed the DPRK as part of the "axis of evil" and designated it as a target of preemptive nuclear attack and has displayed feverish activities to speed up its preparations.
It is entirely thanks to the great Songun politics of the Workers' Party of Korea that peace is preserved on the Korean peninsula under such crucial situation.
It is high time the U.S. made a responsible bold decision.

True propaganda meant to be absorbed by the masses as a means of control.
