Let's take a step back here and view what you're saying tactically rather than by historically.
According to you, we had a non-proliferation agreement in place (which we didn't live up to our end of the bargain; your words) because a warmongering Republican president wanted to start a war on the doorstep of our largest trading partner who has considerable financial leverage over us but never did? He forgot or something?
Listen to yourself. What was his endgame (Bush) if he couldnt go to war? Why did they attempt their own agreement in 05? Because he's a warmonger? They'd go nuclear if he did nothing? Why then?
Furthermore from nti.org:
On 16 October North Korea admitted that it had been conducting a secret uranium enrichment program, which Pyongyang agreed to halt under the 1994 DPRK-US Agreement Framework. On 28 October a joint statement issued by the United States together with Japan and the ROK concluded that the DPRK's program was a violation of the North-South Joint Declaration
Wondering what your take is here given NKs admission?
Last, donnerboy - with all due respect if the door was always open why didn't Obama walk through? For the record, I'm an admirer of his but I don't think this is simply the case. Maybe NK/CHN viewed an opportunity to take advantage of our President and they got some pretty good concessions if that's your argument but I think we were at a point we're no one president, Dem or Repub, could stop a nuclear NK. I'd rather be talking to them (KJU directly) then not.
