North Korea agrees to nuclear disarmament

Can't wait to hear this one. If history has taught us anything, it's that the light at the end of the tunnel is usually an explosion.

North Korea agreed Tuesday to shut down its main nuclear reactor and eventually dismantle its atomic weapons program in exchange for millions of dollars in aid, just four months after the communist state shocked the world by testing a nuclear bomb.

Key word? Eventually. That's a pretty broad time frame.
"North Korea, it's the year 2038 and you still have nuclear arms."
"We're working on it, we're working on it."

The deal, reached after arduous talks, marks the first concrete plan for disarmament in more than three years of six-nation negotiations.

Three years and we get an "eventually". Oh well, it's better than a "go fuck yourself" followed by the launching of missiles.
