Why Should This Surpise Anyone ?

North Korea hedges on nuclear deal
"North Korea said today that it would not dismantle its nuclear-weapons program until the United States first provides an atomic energy reactor, casting doubt on its commitment to a breakthrough agreement reached at international arms talks."

I cannot count the number of times NK has done this; to say one thing, only to reverse or hedge on the "commitment" they made. Often times, a mere 24 hours later. This has to be extremely frustrating for those diplomats who have to work this nonsensical regime; at least those who are trying to negotiate seriously.

I am not so sure this includes China. I tend to believe that they are just going through the motions to appeal to the "global community."

Opinion Journal has a different view than I do. Progress in Beijing China finally leans on Kim Jong Il.
