Obama Administration Says Kim Jong Il Died Amid Nuclear Talks

Obama Administration Says Kim Jong Il Died Amid Nuclear Talks

The United States was close to announcing a deal that would put a stop to North Korea’s uranium enrichment program when the country’s leader, Kim Jong Il, died,  according to a senior U.S. official.

The Obama Administration was allegedly planning an announcement that the United States would make a large donation of food aid to North Korea; and, in turn, the country would end its controversial uranium enrichment program.

The leader’s death came just as Glyn Davies, U.S. envoy for North Korean nuclear issues, returned to Washington for consultations after talks in Seoul, Tokyo and Beijing over the nuclear issue.

Officials are now worried about North Korea’s intentions, and doubts have grown amid reports that Kim Jong Il’s health problems would open the leader’s position to his son Kim Jong Un — a man believed to be in his late 20s, about whom little is known.

    Having an “agreement” with North Korea is like going to bed with a rattle snake believing everything will be OK.
    And believing anything that anyone in the Soros Administration tells you is about as dependable as trusting an alcoholic won’t be tempted to have another drink.
    Between North Korea and the goons in the white house, it is a toss up over which one is telling the truth.

    • Sturgeon Riley

      My sentiments!!!!!

    • karel Eekels

      I second that statement wholeheartedly.

    • Sirian

      Telling the truth is beyond the limits of their campaign via Soros directives, simple as that.

      • eddie47d

        Another cheap shot from chipshot. Every President since the Korean War has tried to negotiate with the North Koreans so why wouldn’t Obama do the same. What’s this Soros obsession when he isn’t even in the picture. The truth is elusive to many around here. This could be an opportunity to break down the Hermit Kingdom considering that South Korea has also been negotiating with the North and for several years. Even China is sick of being friends with North Korea and the refugee problems it creates.The North still has plenty of Generals that call the shots so maybe Jung UN (age 28) will be manipulated by them also …but when opportunity knocks it might be wise to take it. Jung Un also has a brother who lives in Singapore who dislikes the “fatherland”. He has turned Capitalist and refuses to go back to the North to live. Even Jung Un was trained in Switzerland and has Western ideas.

        • eddie47d

          Should be Jong Un not Jung Un.

        • Vigilant

          “Every President since the Korean War has tried to negotiate with the North Koreans so why wouldn’t Obama do the same.”

          Quite simply, because “negotiation” has NEVER brought them around to compliance. We all know the definition of insanity; Jimmy Carter, who’s done more damage to the US since he’s been out of office than when he was president, went several times to N. Korea, brokered a deal to swap food/diesel fuel for stopping the nuclear development.

          EVERY TIME N. Korea backed out on the deal AFTER they received the aid. And Carter, unbelievably, won a Nobel Peace Prize for his fruitless efforts and gullibility.

          It has become a tradition with N. Korea that the dummies in DC never seem to recognize: when things get bad in that country, they start rattling the sabres and make threats of war. They know that the West will appease them EVERY TIME.

          The record with N. Korea, as far as the US is concerned, is a story of US cowardice and appeasement. The Pueblo incident, the shooting down of the EC-121 a year later, unprovoked killing of US troops in the DMZ, sinking of a S. Korean ship most recently, and many other acts of unredressed provocation have shown us to be the paper tiger we are.

          And the Obama administration think that things will be different this time around? What a bunch of idiots!!!!

    • Erik

      Chipshot ,you’re exactly right! I have a feeling this administration is saying this as a precurser to some idiotic scheme they have in mind,maybe something just as dumb as “fast&furious”? It’s good to know we have the keystone cops in charge,isn’t it?

    • amarq

      I must disagree with you. There is no toss up to it and it definately isn’t an either or. The N. Koreans are what they are…they do understand hunger and will likely say what you want to hear if you have food. Our government tells the truth when it is convienent and part of a larger deception…never the whole truth. When you hear something that sounds like truth, run for cover.

    • DavidL

      When did North Korea go nuclear? During the administration of
      George W. Bush. When did Iran really push to go nuclear? During the administration of George W. Bush. The reasons for their nuclear programs are obvious.

      If the Obama administration almost had a deal, good for them. If they can still make such a deal with the new leader, good for them. What’s wrong with that?

      • Vigilant

        “If the Obama administration almost had a deal, good for them. If they can still make such a deal with the new leader, good for them. What’s wrong with that?”

        You must live in a news vacuum. See my post above.

        “What’s wrong with that?” It has NEVER worked before, it won’t work this time.

      • Vigilant

        “When did North Korea go nuclear? During the administration of
        George W. Bush. When did Iran really push to go nuclear? During the administration of George W. Bush. The reasons for their nuclear programs are obvious.”

        Oh yes, we all know how friendly those countries were with the US before the Bush Administration. The reasons for your myopic Bush-hating bias are obvious.

    • Ret

      Tell the truth???? And I believe in Santa, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, oh yeah and 8 tiny reindeer. Now people, please. I’m fully aware that in Lapland there are reindeer, but they’re too big to fly on the roof.

    • Lee Baldwin

      Barrack Obama aka Barry Soetoro aka Harrison J. Bounel IS AN OUT AND OUT LIAR. This dead dictator can’t speak for himself now, so the purple lipped one is speaking for him.Just like he speaks for all of us instead of allowing us to VOTE on issues. We the People MUST VOTE THIS TRASH OUT in 2012.

  • Warrior

    Little jong’s son we know nothing about? Hell’s Bell’s, we’ve got one of those ourselves! Now, get back in line.

    • Sturgeon Riley

      Right on!!!!!!

  • 1minuteman

    this game has been tried before and failed every time. this is what countries like n. korea do. they bribe you after they do some attack. remember they torpedoed a s. korean ship killing about 50 sailors and then they shelled an island killing civilians and military and we did nothing. obama knows he can’t beat them with drones so he gives in like the wimp he is. bully’s only respond when you bloody their nose and not when you give in.

    • Dale

      JIM H,, You are right. Remember what happened during the N. Korean peace talks. It did not end the conflict. In fact it just gave North Korea more time to make a fool of all Nations involved and administraters. making fools of us again. Dale

  • Erik

    You can be sure this kid will do something outrageous to let everyone know he’s his father’s son!

  • JimH

    Even with a new leader they need food. As soon as the soldiers and sailors are fed, they can go back to making nukes.
    It’s not like we haven’t seen it before. Fool me once shame on you fool me twice, shame on me.(this saying also goes for people who voted Obama in the last election)

  • http://none Bob Rice

    Hi All,i dont worry too much about the north korean leader,We have our own idiot to worry about,and he lives in that big house in Washington,DC…But.its time to go kick north koreas butt,after warning China to stay out of it…

  • skyraider 6

    Line up’ Here we go again Giving something for nothing as usual, Boy are we suckers.

  • David in MA

    obozo’s name should not have a “Jr.” after it, it should read “BS”.

    obozo reminds me of an old saying:
    If you cannot dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bull chit.

  • Reddog 245

    How convenient, our dear leader had convinced their dear leader to put down his nukes, but now he is dead and can’t confirm or deny! O ALMOST brought peace to the world again, but was denied. But we can still be impressed and vote for him again in November. After all, good intentions are as important as results, right?

  • Capitalist at Birth

    YEAH right, and I have a beachfront lot for sale in Arizona.

  • always right

    Yep, our “agreements” with N. Korea always work out well, for them. Didn’t the billy’n’hilly show give them fissile material (the stuff they using now, most likely) to build a nuke power station? Demoncraps never learn. Every day they wake up is a new day and everything and everybody (except conservative Christians) are wonderful. There’s no history upon which to base the day’s decisions, because, after all, it is a new day. All they have upon which to base their decisions isthat which gives them good feelings about themselves. If s/he wants to trade off our military secrets for a briefcase full of cash and a promise to deliver 5mil unicorns powered by rainbows in 5 years, he’ll make that trade and reality be damned. Let the N.K. people starve. Maybe their hunger will make them rise up and kill off the thugs in charge.

    Reminds me of the scorpion and the turtle. After stinging the turtle which was halfway carrying the scorpion across the river, he responded, “It’s what I do.”

    Only an idiot would believe anything NK would promise.

    • eddie47d

      Basically we have an obligation to negotiate with North Korea because South Korea wants reunification and they are our ally. Now South Koreans are no fools and won’t take any talks lightly but it all has to be done with US approval. This will probably still take many more years if ever and I could care less if the North gets any food or not. We hold the power over them not the other way around and no we shouldn’t be fooled by any promises. The North has allowed over 2 million of it’s own people to die of starvation. They made their own choice to accept guns over butter and we need to turn that completely around on them.Give up your guns or no butter!

  • George E

    I think we’ve seen this movie before. Tell me again. What’s the definition of insanity? (Doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome….)

  • http://comcast JimBob

    Very timely to release info about the alleged talks that were going on when no one can verify them. Nothing like making your case over a dead body. More obama detente. Anyone who believes that crap, I have some choice land for sale in Nairobi.

    • eddie47d

      Bash Obama is your rational discussion? Few Presidents have negotiated very successfully in the last 3 decades so why pick on one man. Now is this the same sit on your hands and do nothing detente you would like or are you pro active?

      • George E


        You’re right that every administration has been snookered by North Korea in recent years. I just hate to see us continue letting them snooker us again pretty much the way they did in the past. It makes us look rather inept, I think.


    The new 27 year old dictator Ding Dong the III must have a glandular problem or maybe one heck of a healthy appetite…I am convinced his bulk is due to controlling the spoon at his end of the table.

    Not to many fat guys in N. Korea.

  • Joey Biden

    I should believe anything the Liar-In-Chief says because….

  • One-Angel

    Don’t we know the food the U.S. would send would be all GMO’s.

    • JimH

      One-Angel, When you are starving the issue of GMO goes right out the window.

  • joseph salizzoni

    If you believe the Obama administration has convinced the North Koreans to stop making and selling Nuclear weapons. Please send me money. I have shares in bridges all over the world to sell you.

  • Meteorlady

    Why would we enable a dictator to keep his people in chains? I think Obama is using this to make it look like he was doing something, but nothing would have happened as it never does.

  • Candyman238

    The fact is the North Koreans have been pulling this for the last 20 years. They usually insist on some 500 metric tons of grain and 500 metric tons of fertilizer delivered in advance before the talks begin. If I remember correctly the Communists burned one of the Bushes for the entire shipment by taking delivery then cancelling the talks. Also the Communists just finished construction on a enrichment plant. If they planned on dropping their nuke program, they wouldn’t have built this plant now would they? God Bless America!!
