Diplomacy

The U.S. decides to remove North Korea from the terrorism blacklist.

The U.S. says North Korea has agreed to every nuclear inspection demand the Bush administration has sought, so the North is being dropped from a U.S. terrorism blacklist.[…]

[…]North Korea will allow atomic experts to take samples and conduct forensic tests at all of its declared nuclear facilities and undeclared sites, on mutual consent. The North will permit experts to verify it has told the truth about transfers of nuclear technology and an alleged uranium program.

This is how diplomacy works…good foreign policy recognizes that a positive-sum approach is far more productive than zero-sum, Bush Doctrine in the “you mean his worldview?” sense approach.
