North Korea Stands DownTopics: International News
Jawa Report has a post on North Korea agreeing to stop it's nuclear program in exchange for economic and energy benefits, an agreement to keep North Koreans safe, and an open door to later start back up their program later.
I can't help but wonder what, if any, implications this has in the Iraq nuke situation, since while North Korea agrees to end nuclear weapons program, Iran says it's going ahead with it's nuclear program. Even worse, Incredibly "though it may sound, there are signs that Tehran may be preparing for a military confrontation with the United States, and has convinced itself that it could win." (Hat tip GOPINION)
In The Bull Pen is taking this with a grain of salt. Powerline says, "Maybe it's a breakthrough, maybe not." And Captain Ed calls it "a stunning foreign-policy victory for the Bush administration."
But California Yankee says it's much to do about nothing: "The headlines sound too good to be true because they are. There is no agreement, pledge or vow that North Korea will do away with its nuclear arms programs."
Implications of a Nuclear Iran
