Post N. Korean Gen.: 'War is Inevitable'

North Korean General: 'War Is Inevitable'

Oct. 19, 2006 If President Bush continues to ask North Korea to "kneel," war "will be inevitable," and it would begin on the Korean Peninsula, North Korean Gen. Ri Chan Bok told "Good Morning America" anchor Diane Sawyer, in an exclusive interview inside North Korea.

President Bush wants the country to kneel down, Ri said, and North Koreans cannot agree with that.

Sawyer visited the general in a ceremonial hall.

For decades, the general has been in charge of the flash point demilitarized zone, the 2.5-mile stretch between North Korea and South Korea.

In the interview, Sawyer read Ri the president's statement warning of grave consequences for North Korea should the nation continue nuclear testing or transfer nuclear technologies to third-party countries.

She asked whether the general had a reaction.

Ri told Sawyer that he didn't tend to believe what Bush said.

"Can the general guarantee or reassure the American people that this nuclear information will not be passed to terrorists?" Sawyer asked.

"We have nuclear weapons to defend our country and our people," he said.

The general said he could guarantee that these weapons were to defend North Korea and not to earn money or be sent to third parties. He added that North Korea did not have a relationship with terrorist organizations.

Sawyer asked him what the words of North Korea meant when leaders said there would be a merciless blow in response to any sanctions.

Ri said he couldn't say specifically, but pointed out that North Korea had short- and long-range missiles.

Sawyer asked whether the country's nuclear technology was weaponized and whether it could be loaded on missiles.

He would not say whether he could nuclearize the country's weapons, but said to be assured that the country had the facilities to deliver nuclear weapons.

"North Korea is ready," he said.

When talking about the possibility of talks, the general said the country didn't care if the talks were bilateral or six-party, but he said the sanctions must be lifted for progress to begin.

He said if all this happened, then North Korea would be ready to stand down on its nuclear program.

The general also had a message for President Bush.

"He keeps talking about North Korea as the 'axis of evil,' as an outpost of tyranny, as an unacceptable government that makes its own people hungry," he said.

"We would ask him please to stop making these bad comments on our nation, and I'm speaking not just for myself but for all people in this country."

haha. well, they can't launch an attack against the US from the sea, or a Nuke Missle.

i think what we are most afraid of would be N Korea givin a nuclear device 2 a terriort group who would try 2 smuggle it in 2 the US. (like the 2nd season of 24)

This entire country is a 2 year old on a temper tantrum over cookies and milk.

The US doesn't want North Korea to "Kneel", we want them to come to 6 party talks with the US and North Koreas neighbors. North Korea insistence on direct talks with the US will only result in nuclear blackmail.

China needs to step up to the plate and tighten their leash on this rabid dog.

Yea but that would still be suicide because when we trace back to to origin of the bomb/sale...then I'm sure we will act accordingly

i would think China...and of course Japan....would be worried about the reaction from N Korea.
Kim J Ill(sp) is not a very stable guy....
wouldn't u think that NKorea would react 2 the sanctions by first attackin those who where closest ? rather than risk a war with the number 1 super power in the world [US]

Exactly but being the propaganda machine that they are...they will say whatever it is that they deem necessary to accomplish their goals. Various "poorer" countries will buy into the rhetoric and we will have more and more of these smaller nations wanting nuclear weapons, in order that they have some deterrant to invasion and we have a nuclear crisis on our hands. A prime example of what I am saying can be seen in the situation with Iran...the longer we allow the N Koreans to get away with this nonsense, the further we embolden Iran to continue to pursue their nuclear ambitions which include but I am sure are not limited to enriching uranium. We need to address the issue immediately...or the next thing you know Venezuela will be wanting nukes along with Thailand...Egypt has just this week announced its ambition of becoming a nuclear nation as well...shyt is getting out of hand

Yes, he would attack those who are closest. That would cause a war with America.

This whole situation is reminiscent of the political intrigue that resulted in the assasination of Franz Ferdinand and the beginning of WW1.

There are two ways out.

1) The US agrees to direct talks with the North Korea and then is forced into nuclear black mail or nuclear war.

2) China pulls North Korea in and forces them into 6 party talks with their neighbors and to stop proviking an international incident.

China is the key. They are the only one who can defuse this situation and they are the ones with the most to loose.

we sat around in WW1 for like 3 years...not till american lives were lost @ sea (civlians) and the zimmermann telegram in 1917 did we get involved.
this is a possible threat that we can only hope goes 2 yer Option 2.

Answer me this...what do you think happens if the North Korean Government collapses?

Answer: Millions of North Korean refugees pooring into China and South Korea causing a severe strain on both countries economies...trust me, China wants that government to survive and stay intact and so does South Korea...

Remember that China is still officially communist and N Korea is one of only 5 communist countries left.

They would if we either we invade them or apply total sanctions on them (given China actually imposes said sanctions)...but you're right, China is definately the key player here. They are the catalysts for either the successful de-nuclearization (sp*) of North Korea or allowing for the situation in the region to further escalate...
