North Korea Agrees to Disarm

14 February 2007

North Korea has agreed to eventually end its nuclear weapons program, according to MSNBC, in exchange for a million tons of oil. Though Kim Jong Ill’s decisions are obviously subject to change, it’s a step in the right direction.

Bush said that “These talks represent the best opportunity to use diplomacy to address North Korea‚Äôs nuclear programs. They reflect the common commitment of the participants to a Korean Peninsula that is free of nuclear weapons.” Since North Korea is in fact the only country to ever develop these horrific weapons, we can all be assured of a much safer, nuclear-free world as soon as North Korea abandons its one operating nuclear reactor.
