31. "But what if?"
So, in other words, because we don't know for sure if they will hold up their end of the bargain, we shouldn't even negotiate or broker an agreement? The "but what if" question can be asked in every diplomatic situation in the world, but if we allow it to deter negotiations, there will NEVER be any diplomatic progress. Besides, I've lost count of how many agreements, deals and treaties Bush has broken ... so maybe North Korea is the country that should be asking "but what if".
