Blackmail Pays Off

Let me see if I understand this:
North Korea told the United States it shut down its nuclear reactor, the State Department said Saturday, hours after a ship cruised into port loaded with oil promised in return for the country's pledge to disarm.
I'd like a job like that. Make a threat, and even before I carry it out (or even prove that it was a credible threat), my victim pays off.

Sweet.
