North Korea agrees to resume talks

Now they want to talk?

Under pressure from China, North Korea agreed to return to disarmament negotiations over its nuclear program. The announcement Tuesday eased tensions that had escalated after the North's first nuclear weapons test three weeks ago.

There's a sense of stability in the fact that there's never much progress with North Korea isn't there? No matter how fucked the way of the world gets, at least there's the constant comfort in knowing that the North Korea nuclear weapon situation will always be that one issue that will never, ever fucking go away.

"I am pleased and I want to thank the Chinese," President Bush said. Bush acknowledged that new talks don't guarantee success.

Good thing the US President is always there to remind us that failure is never far away.
