North Korea Gives up Nukes
That healine threw caught me off guard. Anyone think that North Korea will stay the course? Maybe the movie Team America put them in their place

BEIJING, China (CNN) -- Nearly three years after ordering U.N. nuclear inspectors out of the country, North Korea Monday agreed to give up its entire nuclear program, including weapons, a joint statement from six-party nuclear arms talks in Beijing said.
