    REF: “agree to rid the peninsula of nuclear weapons”:

    So from now on, except the “nuclear” weapons; they are free to use all other kinds of weapons.

    As the article sort of says, it depends on what the words mean to the parties involved. To South Korea, ridding the peninsula of nuclear weapons undoubtedly means there being no nuclear weapons there at all. To the North, it probably means the end of the US presence and the US nuclear “umbrella” being withdrawn. There's also the small matter of where the North could hide weapons. Would it permit unescorted in-depth inspections? Has it equipped itself so that it could manufacture weapons quickly? Would it give up any ballistic missiles? Wasn't that long ago that Kim said he didn't need any more development or tests.

    Surely, the reality is that the South would have to be on the brink of being completely overrun before the US seriously considered major strikes?
