North Korea is agreeing to disarm under international pressure and recent dialog. This is great news. Hopefully the North Korean people can begin to move forward now.

Tentative Deal in N. Korea Nuclear Talks

posted on Feb, 12 2007 @ 03:32 PM

BEIJING, China (CNN) -- North Korea has tentatively agreed to close down its nuclear weapons program in exchange for energy aid, U.S. and Chinese officials said Tuesday.

So they're doing this if we give them energy? I recall so many people bashing the Clinton administration for being easy on them. Looks like it's happening all over again as it almost sounds like Bush is going to give into them.

Well... Aid energy is nothing as close as their list of "demands" they had some time ago

They were litteraly asking for a light water nuclear reactor (yeah... sure...)

One problem . . . this has been on and off by our government administrations through the years, always failing to support NK at the end . . . Nk just goes back to their nuclear ambitions. . . and the cycle continue.

The US government tough the North Korean regime would collapse since the beginning of the Nineties

I think that might explain their policy toward them

Hey if they are to collapse any time soon, why give in? just buy some time

In my opinion this is crazy, North Korea are manipulation I swear, they do something bad and which caused shock all over the world, then they promise not too basically do it again if they get something.

What if they did the whole thing on purpose, knowing they would get something by giving it up in the end, as they seemed to be straigh forward ready to ask for something to stop it.

Sounds like Lucy is about to pull the football out from underneath Charlie Brown once again....

I saw on the news this morning that they said in 60 days they would stop.
Sounds to me like they are just stalling.

To be honest, I don't believe NK either. (And I suppose the negotiators know the problems, too!)

But, what does NK need?
What is the point of losing there atomic strength, for 'a bit of oil'?


Don't they have the strength they declared to have?


Will they only give up a part of their nuclear project?

What (even) we know, is that most of NK Military strength is underground, meaning most of the west-countries don't exactly know how strong the NK army really is.

Maybe they only worked on the atomic Weapons to be able to blackmail the West.


And this is probably the worse case:
They have only given up working on the technologie because someone (a country) has promised to supply them with nuclear weapons when they 'need' them.
E.g. NK gives up their plans and have the embargos lifted, can then work on building up the rest of their army and when the time comes they can have (their?) nukes back...

Whatever, I'm glad they have started negotiating, but I don't trust them...

That petulant midget has successfully convinced tellers at the largest bank in the world that the bananna in his pocket is actually a gun.

Hats off to balls, but next time he should wear a stocking on his head so we can't identify him in a lineup.
