North Korea still distrusts President George Bush

It’s not surprising that the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea) distrusts President George W. Bush. He did include their country as part of what he called the “axis of evil.” That is especially true after invading one of those countries, Iraq, which we still occupy today. Bush has given the DPRK leadership little reason to trust him. Relations were improving with the DPRK before Bush was elected. That may explain the following article:

"Pyongyang again demands U.S. pull its troops from South Korea"
A.P.- Sept. 8, 2005
“SEOUL, South Korea - International talks on North Korea’s nuclear program will resume next week, China’s Foreign Ministry announced Thursday, as Pyongyang renewed its demand Washington withdraw its troops from the South to prove it doesn’t plan to attack.The talks, aimed at ending North Korea’s nuclear ambitions, recessed Aug. 7 after the two Koreas, the United States, China, Japan and Russia failed to agree on a statement of principles after 13 days of negotiations.
North Korea has insisted on the right to a civilian nuclear program, but Washington says it shouldn’t be allowed any nuclear program at all because of its record of broken promises.”

--Of course, few in the U.S. ever accused Bush of not keeping his promises.—Yeah, right!
