"While South Korea prospers, the people of North Korea have suffered profoundly," he said, adding that, "communism had resulted in dire poverty, mass starvation and brutal suppression.
"In recent years," he went on to say, "the suffering has been compounded by the leader who wasted North Korea's precious few resources on personal luxuries and nuclear weapons programs."
Bush concluded his message by stating that God is keeping South Korea always and that he hoped for the reunification of the two countries.
The gathering at Sangam World Cup Stadium in western Seoul, also featured leading Christian leaders like H.E. Fernando Borbon, Costa Rica Ambassador to Korea who is also a missionary pastor with the Manmin church, Cho Yong-gi, founder of Seoul Yoido Full Gospel Church, and more than 60,000 Christians who congregated for prayers for a peaceful solution over North Korea's nuclear weapons programs and hope for an early reunification of the divided Koreas.

At least we know the GW is an American.
And he cares....
Thanks for posting. Interesting.
Exactly what was precious & whom was it traded to for what?
“Note: The Korean War (1950-53”
Dr. S. Rhi never signed the peace accord. The South NEVER accepted the treaty did they?
Photo and additional commentary here:
Over 65,000 South Koreans attended President Bush’s speech!
“In 2005, North Korea was ranked by the FAO as an estimated 10th in the production of fresh fruit and as an estimated 19th in the production of apples. It has substantial natural resources and is the world’s 18th largest producer of iron and zinc, having the 22nd largest coal reserves in the world. It is also the 15th largest fluorite producer and 12th largest producer of copper and salt in Asia. Other major natural resources in production include lead, tungsten, graphite, magnesite, gold, pyrites, fluorspar, and hydropower.” —wikipedia, FWIW.
I would interpret GWB’s remarks to mean that the above resources, certainly sufficient in a market economy to provide a high standard of living for a happy, well-fed population, were traded away for weapons and weapons technology and high-end luxury goods for Dear Leader and his circle.
and GW did what for the suffering people of North Korea....?
i was delighted to read of Pres Bush speaking about the horrors of totalitarianism,N Korea and the situation going on in that country. Pres Bush is A REAL HERO for what he says but even more how he says it especially in a non flashy way. I myself wasn’t very well educated on NK so i started doing some reading and watching documentaries. I found some informative docus on YT. It’s really really beyond bad over there. It’s hell
