Obama Administration Preparing Incentives Package for North Korea
Fox News ^ | 21 July 2009 | James Rosen

BANGKOK -- The Obama administration is consulting with allies on a new "comprehensive package" of incentives aimed at persuading North Korea to abandon its nuclear programs, senior U.S. officials confirmed Tuesday.

The officials, who are traveling with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Thailand, told reporters that the package is only in its early stages and will not be offered to North Korea unless and until the allies sign off on it. Pyongyang would also have to first take specific, concrete and "irreversible" steps to begin destroying its arsenal of nuclear weapons.

Any mention of "Hillary Clinton" and "package" in a story makes me think of the 90s era Spy Magazine cover.

This story is hardly comforting, given the Obama Administration (appeasers and buffoons in their own right) is full of Clinton retreads.....the gang who gave us the Agreed Framework and NK nukes.

North Koreans get incentives, Honduran Bolivarianists get support, the American people get the shaft.

North Korea gets incentives, Honduras gets pressured.

I’m confused.

Maybe we should start by offering Kim Jong Il, that super-duper public option health care package.

Funny, Obama can craft a wide sweeping health care package in weeks ... but none for the North Koreans?

I know it seems kind of silly but it as if Obama has no clue who are friends are and who our enemies are. He reaches out to our enemies and our competitors with incentives and criticizes and pressures our allies, our natural allies, and our friends.

Before long we’ll have a world filled with former allies and former friends and our enemies will still be our enemies. (That’s why they call them enemies.)

And is there any wonder why NK keeps coming back for more “incentives” while not once meeting their obligations... It is simply an extortion racket that works with the gullible so they keep using it...

Fact: Incentives didn’t work the first, second, third, or fourth time they were tried.

Bambi-’RAT Conclusion: Let’s try it again!

Analysis: our government is insane.

The U.S. is like one fat gift to NOKO: We just keep giving, conceding, giving, conceding, and giving.

I am the only person here who remembers we did this under Clinton and it didn’t work? We, South Korea and Japan provided North Korea with nuclear reactors to generate electricity, and threw in huge amount of fuel oil; North Korea “promised” to conform to nonproliferation rules, get rid of its spent fuel rods, international inspections, etc. We honored our part of the bargain, they didn’t. Why are we doing this again. And surely Mrs. Clinton should remember what happened. The only way to deal with these people is to shut down their money, shut down their access to their money like Bush did with their Malayasian bank account, and which I seem to remember brought them to heel for a time.

A call has been put in for Jimmy Carter and Albright to head the negotiations. It worked so well the last time.

The only concession to NK should be a five minute warning that there’s “INCOMING” - kids hide under your dung hole!

How many presidents are going to show the world what bozos we elect by making fools of themselves thinking they can buy the NORKS off?

There was a time in our history when Americans had a reputation for being sharp and hard to get the best of in a deal.

Now, no matter which party is in the White House, year aftyer year we are the world’s biggest patsy.
