GENEVA — North Korea has agreed to declare and disable all its nuclear facilities by the end of this year, the chief U.S. negotiator said Sunday.
U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill said two days of talks between the United States and North Korea in Geneva had been "very good and very substantive" and would help improve chances of a successful meeting later this month with Japan, Russia, South Korea and China in six-nation talks aimed at ending the North's nuclear weapons program and improving relations between North Korea and other countries.

They did seem fairly serious with their nuclear program and scrapping it may be a tad unfair (the power stations, not the weapons) but it is for the greater good of the planet.

The U.S. is a wealthy country but the funds aren't limitless. Is every third world country with a crabby attitude going to expect us to purchase their peace like this? The whole nuclear thing is getting to be just a bargaining chip to pressure the U.S. for aid money and priveleges.

I wouldn't hold my breath on this. Kim has already proven to be bat# insane, so I'm doubting he'll hold to this.
