North Korea pinky-swears it will shut down their nuke reactor

Just as soon as they get their 25-large:

North Korea said it would begin shutting its main nuclear reactor within a day of retrieving about $25 million that had been frozen in a Macao bank because of American sanctions, Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico said here on Wednesday.
This threat-and-bribery scam has worked for the Kim regime for decades, and yet here we go again. I'll be astonished if the Norks shut down their reactor in a Biblical day.

It may be shut down. But in all likelihood another will be started up or even this site will be re-started once Kim decides we have "reneged" on some part of the deal (I.E. when he uses up the $25 million).
