    Report: Bush admin wants N. Korea off terror watch list
    By Nick Juliano | Uncategorized | Tuesday, 24 June 2008
    Word emerged late Tuesday night that the Bush administration would ask Congress to remove North Korea from a terrorist watch list this week, according to a prominent Washington foreign policy expert.

    Steve Clemons, a senior fellow at the New America Foundation, broke the news on his blog:

    Tonight, The Washington Note confirmed that the Bush administration will “ask Congress” to de-list North Korea from America’s “terrorist watch list.” This request will be made on Thursday — if there are no last minute, unexpected interventions.

    From Reuters India. Apparently NK is going to detail what they have for nukes and blow up one of their reactors, in return they get a little bone. It's diplomacy in action--the kind of stuff some people have been saying the Bush admin is incapabale of, but apparently they've pulled something out here.

    Remember during the debates, Kerry on the one hand hammered GWB for wasting time with multilateral discussions with NK, including China and Russia, saying if he were in office he'd immediately get it done himself, at the same time he criticized Bush for acting unilaterally in Iraq?

    Just a tangent. I'm done...but it does look like diplomacy has worked here. It doesn't mean NK is no longer "the bad guy" but it does make it easier for the world to help them not be a threat and maybe not all starve.

    Fukcing BULL$H!zzzzzz!!!!

    I could see your point if it was only for TWO things:

    1) If we had not been making threats against IRAN for enriching uranium.
    2) If N. Korea hadn't already detonated a NUCLEAR BOMB.

    So, you are telling me that if Iran tests a nuclear bomb, then says that they will blow up their nuclear facilities, we will take them off the terror watch list?

    unreal....

    you can't have this both ways.....Diplomacy works, if you have a nuke first? Gee......I wonder why Iran would want to get a hold of a nuke...hmmmmm?

    Guess we'll see if the administration asks to have them removed from the watchlist, until them it is just speculation, get back to us when something happens.

    North Korea hasn't been talking about eliminating the stinking corpse of South Korea for the last decade either.

    I don't get why you don't like this? The US, working with China and Russia and other countries, has apparently made huge progress toward disarming and hopefully bringing into the modern world a very dangerous (yet backward and desparately poor) nation, and all you can do is b!tch about it?

    How very, very odd.

    There's a thread, it gets taken over by joking, and I'm actually trying to talk about the actual story....talk about a seismic shift...

    I'm not b!tchIng....

    I'm pointing out the double standard. And...not sure what you consider to be a 'threat'. Detonating a nuclear device, launching missles into the ocean a few 4th of July's ago...thats pretty crazy.

    I LIKE peace...I LIKE treaties....

    what I don't like is being lied into war, what I don't like is different standards for different nations because one is sitting on a field of oil, and has a direct line to natural gas from the Caspian Sea.

    Don't forget that North Korea had a hand in building that plant the Israelis blew up in Syria. So if they stop, that's good for the ME too.

    No need for growling, I wasn't complaining...I just thought it was weird, since I'm usually first up with the stupid jokes. :singing:

    there are a few different versions of the story. When that happens, I tend to believe that there is yet another side that we are not hearing.

    ya feel me?
