North Korea has agreed to give up its nuclear (that's pronounced nu-cu-ler) weapons programs, Reuters reports this a.m.
While not a definitive agreement, it's a major step that resulted from the multi-party talks the Bush administration has favored with North Korea and which detractors said wouldn't work.
In fact, it appears that offers of aid including everything from food to energy from China, Russia and South Korea are what turned the tide.
Also, the U.S. has promised not to attack North Korea.
Looks like the old carrot-and-stick approach does work.
This may also increase pressure on Iran to disarm as well.
Lousy day to be a liberal, I suppose.
Update 9/20: Uh-oh, L.A. Times reporting that N. Korea is trying to change the deal already. Goes to show, you just can't trust a commie.
The light-water reactor condition was already on the table though, so it may not derail this after all.
