Seoul, South Korea (CNN) — North Korea has blown up a joint liaison office used for talks between itself and South Korea, the latest sign that ties between the two longtime adversaries are rapidly deteriorating.
North Korean state media reported that the four-story building, which is located in the town of Kaesong just north of the demilitarized zone that divides the two Koreas, was “completely destroyed by a “terrific explosion” at 2:50 p.m. local time.
North Korea says US ‘deceived’ Pyongyang on nuclear talks after Trump sends Kim birthday letter
(CNN) — A top adviser to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said that Pyongyang will not engage in the type of talks seen last year, when Kim met with US President Donald Trump in Hanoi, despite the rapport the two leaders have developed.
In a statement published in English by North Korean state media, Kim Kye Gwan said Pyongyang believed it has been “deceived by the US” and said the US has wasted the last eighteen months, in which little progress has been made on denuclearization.
I’m sure this year you will be off to Oslo to pick up your prize, that is unless you’re in jail. Then they need to mail it to you.

By Sophie Jeong and Hira Humayun, CNN Updated 4:58 PM ET, Mon December 9, 2019
Seoul, South Korea (CNN)A senior North Korean official has called US President Donald Trump a “heedless and erratic old man,” the latest insult in an escalating war of words between the two countries.
Kim Yong Chol, Chairman of the Korea Asia-Pacific Peace Committee, made the comment about Trump on Monday in a statement reported by the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
It comes a day after Trump warned that the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un could “void” their “special relationship” following reports that the hermit nation conducted an “important” test at a missile site.
Once again, let us hear that soul-stirring rally cry. Nobel-Nobel!
The President of the United States responded to news which announced child activist Greta Thnuberg was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for this year. Please, note: President Trump has never won a Nobel Prize of any kind. His predecessor, President Barack Obama won the Peace Prize just for showing up.
It may surprise readers, but for once I agree with President Trump. Greta really needs to work on her anger management problem.
North Korea’s U.N. envoy says denuclearization off negotiating table with United States
By Michelle Nichols
UNITED NATIONS, Dec 7 (Reuters) – North Korea’s ambassador to the United Nations said on Saturday that denuclearization is off the negotiating table with the United States and lengthy talks with Washington are not needed.
Ambassador Kim Song’s comment appeared to go further than North Korea’s earlier warning that discussions related to its nuclear weapons program, the central focus of U.S. engagement with North Korea in the past two years, might have to be taken off the table given Washington’s refusal to offer concessions.
Hey! There is still a shot at Mr. Congeniality. Then, maybe not.
North Korea says it’s running out of patience with US
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea on Sunday said it’s running out of patience with the United States over what it described as hostile policies and unilateral disarmament demands, and warned that a close personal relationship between the leaders alone wouldn’t be enough to prevent nuclear diplomacy from derailing.
In a statement published by Pyongyang’s official Korean Central News Agency, senior North Korean official Kim Yong Chol said there has been no substantial progress in relations despite warm ties between leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump. He said the persisting hostility means “there can be the exchange of fire at any moment.”
I’m already making my reservations for Oslo. See you there, Mr. President. Or else in jail.
The Nobel Peace Prize (Swedish, Norwegian: Nobels fredspris) is one of the five Nobel Prizes established by the will of Swedish industrialist, inventor, and armaments manufacturer Alfred Nobel, along with the prizes in Chemistry, Physics, Physiology or Medicine, and Literature. Since March 1901, it has been awarded annually (with some exceptions) to those who have “done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses“.
Barack Obama won the Prize just for getting elected. Later this year we expect President Trump to make the trek to Oslo to get his.
Sources say that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un expressed his anger and frustration with the US following his failed summit with President Donald Trump to Russian President Vladimir Putin during a North Korea-Russia summit in Vladivostok, Russia. CNN’s Brian Todd reports.
The Nobel Peace Prize was established by Swedish industrialist Alfred Nobel, and it is awarded each year on 10 December. In 2010 newly-elected President Barack Obama was the winner. This year it is expected that Donald J. Trump, our 45th president will be the recipient. Who would doubt this?
Since being elected president in 2016, Donald Trump has worked tirelessly to bring disparate factions together and to bring peace to war-torn regions. Most critically, he has teamed up with Supreme Exalted Dictator for life Kim Jong-un of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea (DPRK) to de-escalate the DPRK’s hostile intentions and it’s program to develop long-range missiles carrying nuclear warheads. For that we are eternally grateful.
Last week Mr. Trump leveraged his long-term friendship with Chairman Kim to convince him to dismantle the DPRK’s aggressive weapons program and to initiate real democracy and an enlightened human rights era in the DPRK.
This impressive accomplishment is not to be underrated.
The world is indebted to these selfless champions of world peace.
Cheers to our great American president, and blessed be the name of Chairman Kim.
I just hate it when I screw up and people rub it in and never let me forget what a mess I made of things. People shouldn’t be that way.
Except, it’s so much fun when you can sit on the sidelines and watch some dirt bag screw up time after time, and you get to rub it in and force Trump supporters to eat shit and get it all over their faces. Call me Mr. Cruel.
