U.S. announces diplomatic breakthrough with North Korea
The Envoy via Yahoo ^ | 29 Feb 2012 | Laura Rozen

Posted on 02/29/2012 12:09:39 PM PST by Repeat Offender

The United States announced a diplomatic breakthrough with North Korea Wednesday.

Under an agreement reached in direct talks in Beijing last week, North Korea has agreed to allow the return of nuclear inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency, and has agreed to implement a moratorium on long-range missile tests, nuclear tests, and nuclear activities at Yongbyon, including uranium enrichment activities, the State Department said. In return, the United States will provide North Korea with a large food aid package.

Time for the new kid to try his hand at an old scam....nuke for food with the US. Must be Rush Week at the DPRK.

remains to be seen whether the North will keep its promises this time

Why is is that whenever democraps sit in the White Hut, the US foreign policy is to act like some abused spouse?

He only beats me because he loves me.......

He's going through a tough time right now......

It is my fault; he promised he won't do it again......

I hope Michelle O. inspects it first to ensure those North Koreans won't be eating too many calories or too much sodium.

So ahhh, let me get this straight. The deal will work like this:

1) North Korea will allow UN type inspectors who will inspect the cat-and-mouse NK nuclear program.

2) This will go on for years.

3) The United States will provide billions of food aid and other aid over the next multiple decades.

4) Absolutely no progress will ever be made with NK giving up or even reducing their nuclear program.

Have I left anything out? have we not seen this play over and over again?

Of course they'll let them inspect Yongbyon. They've moved everything to another site.

Suckers.

Where have I heard this story, oh yeah, all the other times the norks sell the same garbage. They let in inspectors, the inspectors see only what the norks want them to see, and the West provides the norks with free food to prop up their gulag state. Then the norks kick the inspectors out, a new round of ‘negotiations’ follow and we repeat the exercise again.

The international politics version of a two year old in a grocery store. They want something, are told they can’t have it, throw a tantrum, then are bribed into behaving. It never seems to occur to our “smart” politicians that all they’re doing is encouraging more misbehavior.

Why the hell do WE have to feed them? China is a wealthy state sitting right next door, how about THEY buy the food from us for a change and give it to them? This is total BS, the champagne corks are being popped by the party elites in Norkland right now toasting another dumbass move by our State department. When will we ever learn???

In exchange for tons of food, North Korea is promising to do a better job hiding its nuclear weapons program from the UN. I can’t imagine that it’s very difficult.

Inside of two or three months, the Norks will violate whatever terms they agree to... then demand additional food aid as the ticket back to the negotiating table.

Damn, they see us coming every time, don’t they?

The meeting took place in Munich on 29th September, 1938. Desperate to avoid war, and anxious to avoid an alliance with Joseph Stalin and the Soviet Union, Neville Chamberlain and Edouard Daladier agreed that Germany could have the Sudetenland. In return, Hitler promised not to make any further territorial demands in Europe.

This deal actually looks okay, provided there’s one term added to it:

We do the inspections first. We like what we see, we’ll feed you. We don’t, well, you continue to starve.

Don’t forget that old dumb-ass Carter in the equation.

If I remember accurately, he beat all of our officials there.

“Peace in our time” comes to mind.

We were finally getting somewhat serious, and Carter short circuited all of it. N. K. went on to do exactly what it had been doing.

If we're going to send in "inspectors" send them in with the food and ensure the goods are going to the population and not just the politicos and military
