N. Korea Will Scrap Accord Avoiding Naval Incidents With South

North Korea says it will scrap an accord aimed at preventing accidental naval clashes with South Korea.

The North's military said in a statement said Thursday it also will ban South Korean personnel and vehicles from entering a joint industrial park at the North Korean border town of Kaesong.

The statement was carried by the official Korean Central News Agency. It comes amid tension over the sinking of a South Korean warship blamed on a North Korean torpedo attack.

    Anon - you may want to quantify your statement with regard to "you all". I give respect to those that earn it. The last president that had my total respect was Reagan. There were things about Bush 1, Clinton, and Bush 2 I respected them for but not all. As for being Commander In Chief, Obama has only earned respect from those that want to sit around and let this country lose it's status as a superpower and turn into a sniffling bow down to our enemies weakling. If you think Russia, China, Iraq, and Korea will not ultimately take advantage of this weakling, you are sadly mistaken. They are not our allies or friends.

    It's funny, all of you were saying Bush deserved respect, and he sure didn't earn it. At least be honest about what your true problem is with President Obama.

    One does not deserve respect any more than they deserve to be taken care of by the government just because they have no ambition to do for themselves - one earns respect and should earn their keep.

    Even when facing opposition such as North Korea, you can not get over the fact that the president of the United States is not a white man. You probably hope North Korea bombs the US, just so you can have something else to blame on Presidnet Obama. Like it or not, he is the Commander in Chief and deserves respect as such. You people are so ignorant.

    How can blowing up a ship be an accident.Kim Jung Il and Obonga are the accidents.

    Accidental?? There are NO ACCIDENTAL naval clashes!! A submarine Captain does not accidentally fire a live torpedo and sink a ship. A gun crew does not accidentally fire a 5 inch gun and hit a ship. A missile crew does not accidentally fire a SAM and shoot down a plane.
