North Korea is saying the Bush administration’s decision to keep Pyongyang on its list of "state sponsors of terrorism" is intended to provide a pretext to attack the country and make nuclear talks tougher.

The US State Department recently issued an annual report keeping North Korea on its terrorism list with Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan and Syria.

This comes as South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun prepared for talks with Present Bush on the nuclear crisis. Washington and Seoul say they want a diplomatic outcome, although the United States has not ruled out a military option.

Well today we are going to spend the rest of the hour with Noam Chomsky talking about U.S.-Korean relations. He spoke yesterday at Stony Brook University on Long Island in New York.

  • Noam Chomsky, institute professor and professor of linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is the author of 9-11, Power and Terror and many other books.
