North Korea, too, tears up Leap Year Agreement

What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. So true in the shadow war the Obama administration is waging against North Korea.

Overreacting to the DPRK’s failed satellite launch during the 100 birthday celebrations of founder Kim Il Sung, Washington first suspended, then canceled its commitment to supply North Korea with 240 metric tons of fortified powder milk and high energy chocolate bars.

In response to the US’ move, North Korea shredded its obligation to suspend its nuclear programme and cease long range missile tests.

As Harvard trained North Korea watcher Leon Sigal presciently observed in 2009:

‘Whenever the US fails to keep its side of a bargain, North Korea retaliates’.
