North Korea said Tuesday it has suspended work to disable its nuclear reactor in anger over Washington's failure to remove it from the U.S. list of terror sponsors. The North said it will soon consider a step to restore the plutonium-producing facility.
U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said North Korea still has obligations to fulfill.
Yet another of Bush's great diplomatic "legacy".
And if Secretary Rice actually believes that this isn't the end of the nuclear disablement process on the part of North Korea, she's clueless beyond belief.
North Korea was looking for something specific and tangible from the US and didn't get it as a starting point.
Plus, North Korea - and the world - have been given a very clear object lesson, courtesy of the US attack against and subsequent occupation - of Iraq about what happens to countries which don't have a nuclear deterrent.
