    The ban is believed to have blocked access to some $24 million for the North's leaders, who indulge their taste for luxury goods like cognac and fine wines while the vast majority of North Koreans live in poverty.
    I wonder if all this nuclear threat was for them (NK's leaders) to get back their money supplies? It's sad, what some people do for money.

    I hope they don't unfreeze North Korean foreign assets until NK agrees to a nuclear disarmament plan, and to allow UN weapons inspectors unrestricted access in North Korea to independantly verify compliance with the agreement now and in the future.

    I'm not convinced it was the frozen assets so much as the fact that we were essentially starving their population. There are already over a million people starving in NK, with well over 2 million if we had kept their accounts frozen and kept blocking them from getting food.

    Hmm. Hard politics are generally hard to ethically stomach.

    i really doubt by opening up those account all that money is going to social charities to feed their poor, starving people.

    as long as the people in power are fed and happy... north korea will never change.

    oh, and btw... even if we do get them to unarm and stop their nuclear plans... and if we had un inspectors checking up on them... doesnt mean that they won't have some secret one going on. russia still kept their stuff going in secret during the cold war.
