U.S. Secretary of State, Hilary Rodham Clinton, braved sniper fire from Fox News while approaching a podium to make the announcement, describing the move as a "major breakthrough" which heralded peace in our time. South Korean liberal populists said it finally proved the value of their "Sunshine Policy" engagement with the belligerent aggressor nation, while conservative elements denied the North's conciliatory gesture was caused by Sunshine, but instead by Rain, who has recently joined the military and now stands on the border every day singing his greatest hits.
The attempt to weaponize K-pop led to protests from North Korea earlier this year which said it would engulf Seoul in a 'sea of fire' if Rain wasn't silenced, but when the threats fell on deaf ears Pyongyang later offered to pay Seoul money or send food to make him stop.
The U.S. and South Korea are hopeful that the North Korea's lunchtime nuclear program suspension in exchange for food will lead to a permanent solution to the tense situation with the Pyongyang regime, which could even herald a permanent peace treaty and a normalization of relations between the two Korea's. "It would be great not to have to live in fear of having our islands bombed and ships sunk by a nuclear-armed neighbor" said a senior South Korean official.
Intelligence experts say that after lunch, North Korea is likely to feel tired, forget what nuclear weapons research it was doing in the morning, and maybe have a sleep.
