North Korea: Nuclear program not negotiable

A day after the United States promised new missile defense interceptors to guard against a North Korean attack, Pyongyang responded Saturday by blasting the Americans' "hostile policy" and saying it won't negotiate with them over its nuclear program.

"(North Korea's) nuclear weapons serve as an all-powerful treasured sword for protecting the sovereignty and security of the country," a foreign ministry spokesman said, according to the state-run KCNA news agency. "Therefore, they cannot be disputed ... as long as the U.S. nuclear threat and hostile policy persist."

    North Koreans think that hostility is the USA's enabling their impoverished people to eat in spite of the proven failure of communism, especially in their hands? Let them eat their bombs.

    Well that rhetoric is nothing new from North leadership.
    let us continue provoking them, perhaps then we can finally succeed in getting the peninsula up in flames.

    let us in the meantime attack Iran as the news are that Pr.Obama has, as expected given in to another mad cap Netanyahu but for the timing.

    So let us see now. We'll have the entire M.East up in flames, Korean peninsula exploding, the Afghan folly has already succeeded in getting that region devastated in a perpetual cycle of violence.
    China & Russia would hopefully keep to themselves and the world would finally be at peace.
