    Bush Offers Carrots in Exchange for North Korea Nukes Declaration
    Thursday, June 26, 2008

    WASHINGTON ó Pledging "action for action," President Bush on Thursday said North Korea has demonstrated a commitment to dismantling its nuclear weapons program and will be rewarded by being removed from the U.S. list of state sponsors and having trade sanctions lifted.

    The president spoke hours after North Korea submitted its long-awaited declaration detailing its nuclear weapons activities. The government said that it would televise the demolition of the cooling tower at its Yongbyon nuclear facility and turned over documents to China about its plutonium core and waste activities.

    "Today is a positive day and it's a positive step forward," Bush said from the White House Rose Garden. "My point is this: we'll see. They said they are going to destroy parts of their plant in Pyongyang. That's a very positive step."

    But Bush added, "We will trust you only to the extent that you fulfill your promises. I'm pleased with the progress there are no illusions this is the first step."
    Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

    My son is supposed to come home from Korea in a month.

    He said in the next couple weeks he was going to participate in a field exercise to practice defending the approaches to Seoul from a North Korean invasion.

    Maybe that exercise is not needed now and he can take it easy the last month he is there.

    Good...Sanctions don't do a thing but hurt the people. The leaders stay fat and happy no matter what.
    There are much better methods of diplomacy.

    I dunno. What would you suggest?

    Churchill once said that you should look at results over the beauty of the strategy. Symbolism over substance is for retards. Let the liberals beat their heads against the wall over and over without results.. I would suggest doing something that is "effective" if your going to do anything at all.

    How about making the regional nations take responsibility for their own security...for starters.

    Covert political assasinations are fairly successful. ;)

    You wouldn't want to ask Castro about that.;)
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    Withdrawing support from South Korea would pressure North Korea to cooperate with U.S. demands?

    How does that work again?
