North and South Korea Strengthen Economic Links: Step 2 of 'The Squeeze Play'
As part of the February 13th North Korea Disarmament Agreement, North Korea and South Korea have resumed economic relations.
[USPRwire, Mon Mar 12 2007] Some experts have predicted that Kim Jong Il, North Korea's leader, is simply going through the motions in order to utilize his newfound global political capital.
Back in October 2006, one of those experts, 2008 Presidential Candidate Daniel Imperato, predicted that Kim Jong Il was positioning himself for huge amounts of foreign aid in exchange for cooperation with its neighbors.
"Kim Jong Il's nuclear threats turn the world's attention on his every move. He is positioning himself to milk the UN for billions of dollars through future peace negotiations between his neighbors, South Korea and China, who have a greater interest in a peaceful region and now hold far more weight in the UN," stated Imperato in his October 2006 release.
In a subsequent February 2007 release, Imperato commented that the disarmament agreement was only the beginning to Kim Jong Il's money ploy.
"Here we are giving plenty of aid once again to North Korea. Just like the last deal, the nuke talks will stall and North Korea will continue to position itself to milk international funds helped with the cooperation of [ South Korea's] Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon."
Thus, Imperato suggested that this most recent development between North and South Korea is just part of Kim Jong Il's ploy to receive money for North Korea.
"It was Kim Jong Il's plan all along; this is merely step two. He used his threats of nuclear power to make South Korea and China more powerful nations due to their proximity to North Korea. Now, he is trying to capitalize on South Korea's newfound political importance to cash in," stated Imperato.
Imperato concluded his statements with the following, "I cannot sit around and watch this happen. If you look in my previous releases, you can see that I understand the forces at play here in this situation. North Korea will give the appearance of cooperation but will provide no real cooperation, as they stretch out their international aid program as long as possible. Let's see if North Korea really complies. Let's see if they allow all of the UN weapons inspectors total access to all nuclear facilities. Even then, I wouldn't trust the North Korean government to have secret nuclear facilities that are underground and away from UN oversight."
"Now with North Korea's 'cooperation', the United States has to open up the checkbook for every single half-attempt at diplomacy by North Korea. It's not fair to the American taxpayer. Our government has already wasted billions of dollars, and as an American,, I cannot stand by and watch it waste billions more."
