Why America’s 1994 deal with North Korea failed – and what Trump can learn from it

Why America’s 1994 deal with North Korea failed – and what Trump can learn from it

In 1998, both the US and the international atomic energy agency were satisfied that there had been 'no fundamental violation of any aspect of the framework agreement' by North Korea. But on its own pledges, Washington failed to follow through.

A sensible article in a main-stream British newspaper, recounting basic facts which you will never see in the lock-step, totalitarian American "free-press".

Don't forget, the genocidal US government killed 15-20% of the North Korean civilian population in North Korea during the Korean War --- dropping twice the tonnage of bombs on that tiny country as were used in all theaters of war in the Second World War. As might be imagined, the Koreans remember that very well. It is amazing that they dropped their guard sufficiently as to make the 1994 Agreement.

After being betrayed by the duplicitous US government in the '90s and '00s, it will be hard to inveigle the North Koreans into another agreement unless they receive some pretty iron-clad guarantees.
