Sanctioning North Korea

Say what you will about Christine Ahn and Haeyoung Kim, they make a good point about the futility of our North Korean policy — Sixty Years of Failed North Korea Sanctions. They're call for "engagement" falls on deaf ears with me.

We've been "engaging" with free hand-outs for the last fifteen years to no avail. (Emergeny food and medical relief are proper, of course.) Their failed economic system means they have nothing to trade. Complete disengagement (benign neglect) should be our true policy toward the D.P.R.K.
