Don’t get too excited over North Korea’s demolished nuclear reactor tower

North Korea showed a sign of cooperation with the U.S., destroying a nuclear reactor cooling tower today.  According to the Associated Press, Ri Yong Ho, director of safeguards at North Korea’s Academy of Atomic AP photoEnergy Research, hailed the move as a step toward the end of nuclear proliferation.

Before Americans praise this as a victory for U.S. politics and the Bush administration, let’s take a moment of pause.

North Korea is looking for U.S. trade sanctions to be lifted, and this was one minor step toward reaching that goal.  The fact remains that North Korea still has a lot of work to do before the threat of nuclear proliferation and weapons trade is ended.

And who is to really say how many bombs have already been shipped off to other countries?

Hopefully, Bush and his cohorts will handle this situation more gracefully than they’ve handled things in Iraq and Iran.
