Bush's North Korean Proposal

Before people criticize the Bush Administration's "deal" with North Korea, they might want to wait to see how the Administration proposes to monitor North Korea's compliance, which is key to the entire agreement. Conservative critics also might want to keep in mind that two important factors in President Reagan's success in directing a plan that led eventually to the demise of the Soviet Union were:

(1) opening the country to more western culture and information, and
(2) a verifiable compliance agreement.

Both of these figure in Bush's North Korean proposal.
