BEIJING (AP) -- Negotiators reached a tentative agreement on initial steps for North Korea's nuclear disarmament, the U.S. envoy to the talks said Tuesday.

Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill said the agreement outlined specific commitments for North Korea and would set up working groups to implement those goals to begin meeting in about a month. He declined to give other details.

I think we've been here before. I would wait to celebrate until we hear their terms which will probably be outrageous.

Of course, now the democrats will decry this lack of resolve on the part of the administration and proclaim that if they were running things, a strong military option would have been on the table!!!

At BEST (and even this is unlikely), North Korea will suspend until President Hillary is in office, knowing that she will send them those last few little things they need.

We can only hope it's unconditional. I don't want to see a repeat of Albright's escapade.

Obviously this is because of the new Democratic leadership in the House and Senate. (TIC)

That follows perfectly the earlier thread where N Kor negotiations were at an impasse and no end in sight. Makes perfect sense.

Good catch bud!

But... any word on whether Idi Amin is still dead?

I'll believe those rascaly little screwballs when South Korea is an island.

Yet another foreign policy failure of the Bush administration. It's no wonder why so many insightful people (like the ones attending and performing at the Grammys last night) hate our President. (/sarcasm)

I'm thinking the guy could actually be paid to leave.

Give him half a billion and a new identity, and maybe he'd be out of there.

Less power, but more freedom and more security.

Yeah, they heard about her 757 and were afraid she might come over there and "eyeball" them.
