North Korea Agrees to Disarm, Put Down Their Weapons

According to Edward Cody of The Washington Post, North Korea has agreed to disarm their nuclear weapons.

In exchange the country will receive "economic, energy and humanitarian assistance up to the equivalent of 1 million tons of heavy fuel oil."

Is this just another ploy to delay the foreign powers and get more aid or will this disarmament really occur? Only time will tell I suppose and perhaps we will not know for some time. North Korea says they will seal off their primary nuclear reactor but will this happen or will they delay having inspectors like in Iraq?

I'm not buying this just yet.
