Dork from Nork

US nuclear experts expelled from N.Korea

Four US experts monitoring the shutdown of a North Korean nuclear plant were expelled Friday from the isolated nation, Chinese media reported, days after they were told to leave.

The four departed Pyongyang’s Sunan airport for Beijing “under the DPRK’s (North Korea’s) expulsion order,” Xinhua news agency said.

North Korea on Tuesday pulled out of nuclear disarmament talks and ordered US and UN nuclear inspectors out of the country after the United Nations Security Council condemned Pyongyang for an April 5 rocket launch.

The UN nuclear inspectors left North Korea on Thursday.

It’s hard to pursue effective diplomacy with someone who knows you won’t hurt them, and who doesn’t care what you think.

North Korea is a model that can be used by virtually any nation in the world. Goody, goody.
