    "The meteorological service needs to "provide accurate data for weather forecast and meteorological and climatic information required by various fields of national economy in good time," Kim said, though he appeared to place blame on outdated equipment and scientific method. The Washington Post notes, however, that the "strain on the faces of those being lectured is quite evident" per Rodong Sinmun's photos; CNN describes Kim as appearing "red-faced."

    Kim Jong-un, the dictator of North Korea who inherited his position from daddy, Kim Jong-il, now has another toy to play with thanks to being fortunate enough to live through birth. Although the bloated young Kim appears as if he would have difficulty performing even one boot camp pushup, he has just been given control of the entire military due to his promotion to grand marshal of the army. Jack Kim (no known relation to guess who) of Reuters wrote up the story about this not exactly merit-based promotion. However, Mr. Kim also gave us a buildup about some "sharp...

    CRAZED North Korean leader Kim Jong-il gobbles LIVE FISH as he plots his rogue country's bid to become a nuclear power. Pint-sized Kim, 68, washes them down with fine French wines and brandies, even though two million of his subjects have died of starvation. His former chef Kenji Fujimoto said: "He particularly enjoyed raw fish so fresh that he could start eating as its mouth is still gasping and the tail is still thrashing. "I sliced the fish so as not to puncture any of the vital organs, so of course it was still moving. Kim Jong-il was delighted. He...

McCain told guest host Austin Hill on News/Talk 92-3 KTAR's "Ankarlo Mornings" that the world has let North Korea coast long enough. "The days of accommodating this whacko Kim Jong Il and this most repressive and oppressive regime on earth -- 200,000 people in their prison system -- are over," McCain said. "They have nuclear weapons, they have missiles. It's a matter of time before they match a nuclear weapon with a missile, and that could pose...

    North Korea has promised to wind down its nuclear programme in return for a package of international aid and the normalisation of relations with America.The secretive Stalinist state agreed to shut down its main nuclear reactor within 60 days, and eventually disable it irreversibly, in a momentous deal signed at the end of a six-country conference in Beijing. It will also allow international inspections of the site. In return the US will begin the process of removing North Korea from its list of state sponsors of terrorism, and move towards ending sanctions imposed after the country's underground nuclear test in...

    (10-31) 08:08 PST WASHINGTON, (AP) -- President Bush on Tuesday welcomed an agreement to bring North Korea back to six-party arms talks and said the United States will insist the communist regime abandon its nuclear weapons program in a verifiable fashion. To lure the North back, Washington agreed to discuss the financial sanctions the U.S. imposed on North Korea a year ago for its alleged complicity in counterfeiting and money laundering to sell weapons of mass destruction. Those sanctions attempted to sever Pyongyang from the international financial system. North Korea has boycotted the six-party talks since the sanctions were imposed....

His warning came as the United States and China both sought to placate the communist state, with Condoleezza Rice, the US secretary of state, saying "we want to leave open the path of negotiations", and a Chinese envoy...

    NEW YORK - Rapper Lil' Kim escaped a stiff prison sentence Wednesday after telling a judge she was a "God-fearing good person" who regretted lying to a federal grand jury about a 2001 shootout outside a Manhattan radio station. The Grammy winner was sentenced to one year and one day for perjury and conspiracy — a term far less than the three years and seven months sought by prosecutors. U.S. District Judge Gerard Lynch said he had weighed the public perception of sending a young black entertainer to prison far longer than Martha Stewart, who spent five months in prison...

Hip-hop's Queen Bee — a nickname bestowed on the diminutive rapper by her ex-boyfriend, the late Notorious B.I.G. — was facing up to 20 years in prison, but as expected, Lynch's sentence was less severe (see "Lil' Kim Won't Get Maximum Sentence, Expert Predicts").

The unexpected offer came shortly after the six-member bipartisan U.S. congressional delegation concluded talks with senior communist officials in Pyongyang. Representative Curt Weldon, who led the group, called the trip an "overwhelming success," and said in Seoul that North Korea appeared ready to negotiate "in a matter of weeks." .

    THE DAY that North Korea sends ships or submarines equipped with ballistic missiles into the Pacific, the United States will come within range of nuclear attack by a militaristic dictatorship headed by a ruthless and paranoid near-recluse. That moment, according to research published this week in Jane’s Defence Weekly, is imminent. Both contenders for the White House must hope that it does not happen before the first Tuesday in November, because neither has a particularly reassuring strategy for dealing with a dramatically altered threat from this singularly awkward quarter.
