"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

(Reuters-Alertnet) "They dropped out, They are not speaking," the official said. North Korea's U.N. Mission declined comment...
Foreign Minister Paek Nam-sun had been listed as a speaker on Friday in a preliminary agenda for the three-day summit, the largest gathering of world leaders with more than 150 heads of state or government in attendance.
Editor's note: North Korean speeches are generally filled with anti-American, anti-Japanese, anti-democracy rhetoric, so it is doubtful than any of the free world nations will miss their speech (the exception might be Iran).
(Reuters-Alertnet) Pyongyang is a focus of world attention over its nuclear ambitions after it boasted of having nuclear bombs and pulled out of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
Editor's note: My guess is they probably didn't want to draw too much attention to themselves, especially as the US and Iran are not exactly seeing "eye-to-eye" regarding Iran's nuclear activities. Probably a smart move by North Korea, but I guess we will have to see what "spiel" they will have for the world at the next UN Summit.
