Vindication for Six-Party Talks?

The Democrats have been complaining that President Bush has refused to engage in one-on-one talks with North Korea, even though such a move would be foolhardy given the necessity for Chinese involvement and the ease with which North Korea could maneuver the US into difficulties with other allies.

Now, the six-party approach may have been vindicated.

Of course, verification will be key. Kim Jung Il already snookered the Clinton Administration, and we can't allow the same to happen again.h

According to your champion John Bolton, this is a disaster and Bush should not agree to the deal. Bush is agreeing to Clinton's old deal but now it is even more expensive and North Korea is not agreeing to completely dismantle the nuclear program. John Bolton says this is a very bad precedent. Now anyone rogue nation knows they can wear down the State Dept and get economic benefits at the end of the day.

So after all is said and done Bush goofed up and should have not reneged on the Carter\Clinton deal that was better than this one.

The Carter/Clinton deal allowed for this situation to occur. Nothing has been settled as yet, so your hand-wringing is premature.
