North Korea Will Allow Inspections at Nuclear Test Site, Pompeo Confirms

Secretary of State Mike Pomepo confirmed to reporters in Seoul that Kim Jong Un has agreed to allow international inspectors to visit Punggye-ri, the dismantled nuclear teting site. A date has not yet been set, but Pompeo says that is just a question of logistics.

Punggye-ri was a hollowed up series of tunnels under a mountain, wherein the North Korean government conducted several successful nuclear weapons tests over the past 12 years. The site was dismantled in April and May, as part of a deal to move toward denuclearization.

While reporters were welcomed to oversee the collapsing of the site, some critics complained that international inspectors were never allowed to conduct close-up inspections to confirm the site was totally unusable. Ironically, many of those same critics are now dismissing the invitation for inspectors as meaningless, since the site was already dismantled months ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF these reports are true, it indicates that North Korea is moving in a positive direction, and that should be applauded.

President Trump took one heck of a leap of faith here, and should be commended for having had the courage in believing that there was absolutely another outcome, other than war, which could be made to happen.

I wish he could have taken the same road with Iran; unfortunately, now, however, being firmly in the unyielding grasp of the Neocons, he will never attempt that kind of approach with it.
