Moves to denuclearise the Korean peninsular hit a brick wall today as North Korea halted the disablement of its nuclear facilities and accused the United States of reneging on a disarmament agreement.Well, that didn't take long. I thought NK would at least wait until they got most of the stuff they were supposed to get before pulling one of these.

But today's statement may indicate that Pyongyang has given up on the Bush administration and is now waiting to see whether the next president will pursue a different policy.And there you have it. If the Guardian can figure it out, then it's far from a subtle ploy.

The timing may also have something to do with Pyongyang wanting to exploit poor relations between the US and Russia, playing them against each other.
