so to take a break from iraq for a sec, what should we do about north korea? haven’t heard anything about north korea from the anti-us crowd for a while. i think they’re still trying to figure out a way to paint this as the fault of the us. dear leader’s making it hard with his daily outbursts, though.
in fact, the us is doing EVERYTHING that the multilateralists have always dreamed of. insisting that the problem be worked out with nk’s neighbors. suggesting courses of action be agreed on through the un and in accordance with china, russia, japan, and south korea. meanwhile, the euros and the asians are like deers staring at headlights. nobody wants to do anything and they all insist that the us resolve it unilaterally. huh?
the south koreans, most of all, are astounding. after all those protests expressing resentment at washington not taking their views into account, the outgoing pres demands that the us talk to the north and solve it by ourselves! i guess they’ll keep doing their part by bribing north korean officials into summits to present a good show. aren’t allies grand?
so what does the “peace is groovy” crowd think should be done? come on, step up, don’t be shy.
*notice i said “should be done” as in suggest a course of action. “it’s all bush’s fault” is not a course of action.
