We really shouldn’t forget that in the midst of bombing Iraq back to the stone age, we’ve also got a fairly dicey situation over in Korea at the moment. A situation that looks to be getting worse, too, since Korea just cut off contact with the U.N. due to U.S. arrogance.

North Korea cut off the only regular military contact with the U.S.-led United Nations Command on Wednesday, after accusing the United States of planning an attack.

In a telephone message to the U.N. Command, the North’s Korea People’s Army said it will no longer send its delegates to the liaison-officers’ meeting at the inter-Korean border village of Panmunjom.

“It is meaningless to sit together with the U.S. forces side to discuss any issue as long as it remains arrogant,” the North’s official news agency KCNA quoted the North Korean message as saying.
