    WASHINGTON — North Korea agreed to suspend nuclear weapons tests and enrichment and allow international inspectors to verify and monitor activities at its main reactor, the State Department announced on Wednesday, as part of a deal that included an American pledge to ship food aid to the isolated, impoverished nation.

    Although the Obama administration called the steps “important, if limited,” they signaled a potential breakthrough in the impasse over North Korea’s nuclear weapons program following the death late last year of the country’s leader, Kim Jong-il. He has since been replaced by his son Kim Jong-un, and administration officials have been watching closely to see if his rise to power would alter the country’s behavior. North Korea also agreed on a moratorium on launches of long-range missiles, which have in the past raised military tensions in South Korea and Japan.

    So let's recap. North Korea is, for the 200th time, agreeing to work with the outside world. And we believe them why?

    Right. This is a continuation of enabling their extortion during the Clinton years.

    It's a shock that anyone would believe them.

    North Korea is now run by a man who went to school in Switzerland.

    Another in a string of foreign policy victories for the Obama administration.

    Gullible and desperate. It is a Obama success that the 3rd generation Kim inherited his kingdom? When Chuck takes over in England after his mom dies, will that be an Obama success?

    OMFG, you will just believe anything if it is perceived as a positive for Obama.

    What a fool
