Remember North Korea? You know, part of the axis of evil? Anyone care to remember the Bush policy regarding North Korea and nuculur weapons?

Well, check this out:
WASHINGTON, Dec. 5 — The United States has offered a detailed package of economic and energy assistance in exchange for North Korea’s giving up nuclear weapons and technology, American officials said Tuesday.

But the offer, made last week during two days of intense talks in Beijing, would hinge on North Korea’s agreeing to begin dismantling some of the equipment it is using to expand its nuclear arsenal, even before returning to negotiations.

Hang on a sec.

Please. Correct me if I'm wrong. But isn't this the naive, ill-conceived, unworkable, dreaded Clinton policy on North Korea? Oh, I see. It's different than Clinton. You see, the incentive policy is now being implemented after North Korea has nukes, not before.

Nevermind. Nothing to see here.
