North Korea Adds to Demands for Promises

I knew it wouldn't be long before North Korea started asking for more in "exchange" (in quotes, because that word actually has a meaning) for promising to dismantle its nuclear weapons program. This time it's light-water nuclear reactors.

I wonder what they'll ask for next. It's a scene out of the Sopranos, the classic protectionist racket. Except they're the ones who need protecting, not us--and we just don't seem to realize it.
