North Korea abandons nuclear program

Breaking News:

According to the BBC, "North Korea has agreed to give up all its nuclear activities and rejoin the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty":

At the same time, the US is said to have given an undertaking that it has no intention of attacking North Korea.

The breakthrough came during a fourth round of six-party talks in Beijing aimed at ending a three-year standoff over North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

There is no decision on whether to give North Korea a light-water reactor.

I'll be sure to follow this developing story. Stay tuned.

Clearly, things are looking more positive, but I think we should hold back our cheers until Kim's intentions are more fully known and until there is some legitimate indication that he's sincere. History, after all, would urge caution and skepticism.
