    I dont get how N. Korea is gonna try and act all tough and then just back down and start apologizing and saying it'll resume talks. There has to be something else behind all this for them to be like this ya know? Something we don't know.

    I wanna hear ya'lls opinion on all this, is it sincere? or is it bullshit?

    The 'apologies' have all come via China. I could certainly be wrong, but I think the Chinese are putting out the info for two reasons: 1. so NK knows what is expected. 2. To get US to back down.

    I'm not sure either of the two will work.

    I think that's right, which means Bush was correct on refusing unilateral talks (as US Liberals wanted) and insisting on China's involvement.
