North Korea's media on Saturday threatened "1,000-fold" military buildup as the United States ruled out lifting sanctions to try to coax Pyongyang into resuming talks aimed at its nuclear weapons programs.
Last year, North Korea quit the nuclear disarmament talks and later tested an atomic device that drew tightened U.N. sanctions. But the North has recently expressed willingness to rejoin the negotiations, which include the U.S., South Korea, China, Japan and Russia.
"Last year, North Korea . . . tested an atomic device"?
As in the case of Iran, while we wait on talks about talks, North Korea continues with its development of nuclear weapons. It makes you suspect that Obama accepts the existence of nuclear rogue states.
