North Korea Says It Will Abandon Nuclear Efforts
The Bush administration also overhauled the substance and the style of its approach to North Korea. Officials stopped using the accusatory language President Bush once used when he called North Korea a member of the "axis of evil" and called the nation's leader, Kim Jong Il, a tyrant."
Yeah it didn't look like North Korea could seal the deal with either #42, #43 nor #44. Maybe they think they'll have better luck taking a crack at it again with #45.
Our State Department looks nothing like it did under #42, #43 or #44. Under each administration the State Department was fully staffed with experienced people thoroughly versed in history knowing our previous international relations, backdoor agreements and the players involved. Career experts advising presidents who would listen to and take advice after carefully studying all the facets involved. Under #45-- not so much.
