North Korea's song and dance

It looks like another agreement has been reached with North Korea. Expectations are low since the song and dance that North Korea has repeated in the past is to break their side of agreements. Not a drop of oil should go to North Korea until they have dismantled their nuclear weapons program, and more than just tape and cameras should be used to make sure North Korea doesn't just restart their program when they feel like it.

The negotitations went unusually quick this time. I suspect the thumbscrews of holding the cash in banks that North Korea uses for its counterfeiting operation has forced its hand, and the nuclear program is most likely draining the country's resources and not resulting in anything useful in the foreseeable future.
