FILE - In this June 27, 2008 file photo released by China's Xinhua News Agency, the cooling tower of the Nyongbyon nuclear complex is demolished in Nyongbyon, also known as Yongbyon, North Korea.  Bill Clinton offered oil and reactors. George W. Bush mixed threats and aid. Barack Obama stopped trying after a rocket launch. While Seoul and Washington welcomed Pyongyang’s declaration on Saturday, April 21, 2018,  to suspend further intercontinental ballistic missile tests and shut down its nuclear test site, the past is littered with failure.  A decades-long cycle of crises, stalemates and broken promises gave North Korea the room to build up a legitimate arsenal that now includes purported thermonuclear warheads and developmental ICBMs. The North’s latest announcement stopped well short of suggesting it has any intention of giving that up. South Korean President Moon Jae-in meets with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Friday, April 27, 2018,  to kick off a new round of high-stakes nuclear diplomacy with Pyongyang.
