The fallacy of appeasement

Boston Globe editorial on North Korea: let the Koreans have everything they want. "The fallacy of sanctions" concludes:

Only America can grant the package of energy supplies, economic assistance, and security assurances that the North consistently demands as the price for divesting itself of its nuclear and missile programs. Instead of imposing risky and futile sanctions, President Bush ought to be trying to cut that deal.
