Doug Bandow, senior fellow at the Cato Institute, discusses North Korea’s acceptance of a deal to halt uranium enrichment and weapons testing in exchange for US food aid; why nobody should expect N.

Korea and Japan so the regional powers can resolve their own problems; and why China is more interested in trade than starting wars with its neighbors.
