    In between shooting holes in one, Kim Jong Il apparently decided to cancel NK's nuke program.

    Not surprising, I guess, that the usual suspects would fail to note that U.S. diplomatic efforts in this sphere – widely reviled for failing to acquiesce to "two party" talks while pursuing a larger strategy that included other nations in the region – seem to have worked, at least in the short term.

    Korea probably seems like a joke to a lot of you, but there are plenty of folks on the board who take the threat of another "engagement" there pretty damn seriously. I've stood on the border and it seems pretty damned real to me.
  6. If true, this is a good thing.
    History mandates that we note, however, that this involves closing down a program they stepped up -- four to six bombs -- when this administration abandoned the Agreed Upon Framework devised during the Clinton administration by which NK developed no weapons and enriched no uranium. So what the Bush team did was play itself to a tie here.
    Still, a good thing.

    If true, it's great news. I'm skeptical but hopeful. This is no tie though, as we both know that the Clinton agreement (aka Madeline's Prom document) was worthless and ignored from the day it was signed. Like Castro's alleged death, I'll believe it when I see it, but if it's true it's a huge, surprising, victory.

    Until Jong, his government & his followers are dead and buried, I'm willing to bet money that he still has his starving minions developing nuclear power & weapons, or at least trying to manufacture dirty bombs. If there was a country to invade, why wasn't it North Korea?

    Because it would drive China and its million-man army batshit crazy, for starters. Second, it would absolutely be an unwinnable war of attrition. Third, they have nothing we want, so why would Bush Cheney invade?
  11. Worthless and Ignored=Not making any bombs until the Bushies walked away from the agreement.
    Keep trying, lad. There's life in those talking points yet.
