North Korea Thinks Pompeo Has Reneged on the Deal

Global Research, July 08, 2018

Pyongyang has voiced its regret over America’s attitude during high-level talks with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and accused Washington of seeking unilateral and forced denuclearization from North Korea.
“We were expecting the US… to come up with constructive measures to help build confidence in the spirit of reunion and talks. However, the attitude of the US was indeed regrettable,” said a statement released by the Korean Central News Agency.”
Let this be a lesson to Putin, as if he needs another one, that no deal with Washington can be trusted.  As Assad recently said, talking with Washington is a waste of time, because Washington’s word doesn’t mean anything.  Washington says one thing and does another.
Putin also has the example of Trump tearing up the nuclear agreement with Iran.  Now apparently North Korea.  Russia herself has a long miserable experience of stupidly trusting Washington:  “NATO won’t move one inch to the East.”  The ABM Treaty, and so on.
If Putin is constrained by starry-eyed Russian Atlanticist Integrationists and isn’t on his toes when he meets with Trump in a few days, Russia will again have a miserable experience.  Already the Western-worshiping Atlanticist Integrationists are planting stories in the media about the concessions Putin is prepared to make to Washington.  
Why should Putin make any concessions?  The problem is Washington’s hegemonic ideology, not Russia.  Putin should make no concessions.  If he does, he will collect nothing in return.  
How long will it take for Russia to learn this lesson?

“This book is a ‘must’ resource – a richly documented and systematic diagnosis of the supremely pathological geo-strategic planning of US wars since ‘9-11’ against non-nuclear countries to seize their oil fields and resources under cover of ‘freedom and democracy’.”
John McMurtry, Professor of Philosophy, Guelph University
“In a world where engineered, pre-emptive, or more fashionably “humanitarian” wars of aggression have become the norm, this challenging book may be our final wake-up call.”
-Denis Halliday, Former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations
Michel Chossudovsky exposes the insanity of our privatized war machine. Iran is being targeted with nuclear weapons as part of a war agenda built on distortions and lies for the purpose of private profit. The real aims are oil, financial hegemony and global control. The price could be nuclear holocaust. When weapons become the hottest export of the world’s only superpower, and diplomats work as salesmen for the defense industry, the whole world is recklessly endangered. If we must have a military, it belongs entirely in the public sector. No one should profit from mass death and destruction.
Ellen Brown, author of ‘Web of Debt’ and president of the Public Banking Institute
