American will Provide Food to N. K.

Bush administration will provide 500,000 metric tons of food to North Korea, here is the article. The year before, U.S. donated 100,000 tons of food. The administration emphasizes this food aid program is not related to the nuke negotiation, but to the starving people.

Also, South Korea has begun to send 200,000 tons of fertilizers. U.S. and South Korea are concerned about North Korea people, not the fat man, Kim Jong-il.

Kang Chol Hwan, a North Korean defector, the author of "The Aquariums of Pyongyang: Ten Years in the North Korean Gulag." This book is on the list of Bush's reading in summer. Bush and Dick Cheney had talked with Mr. Kang. It seems there is a chance of democracy developting in North Korea.

It seems extremely unlikely, given the timing of the relief expedition, that this is not intended to bring the DPRK back to talks.

We had been blogging trying to find how our world sees chinese food. It has been a lifeline for us. Your site provides some of the best examples of this sort and we will bookmark yours. Another one we found was and appears to be related to yours is chinese food site/blog. It pretty much covers chinese food related stuff.

If this is to bring North Korea back to talks, then it is moeny well spent. If the intent is to feed the Korean people, we are wasting our money. The governement of North Korea does allow international donations to reach the masses.

Sadly, I fear that talks with KIM Jong Il will never produce results. But it is a worthwhile effort to try. In the event of failure, there is one more option... assassination.
