This column by Jim Hoagland

This column by Jim Hoagland in the Washington Post offers a more sensible analysis of the situation with North Korea than most of what I’ve seen on the subject. Hoagland concludes that the Bush Administration has taken the right appoach since Ocboer, and that the concession of agreeing to formal negotiations with North Korea while it continues to break its previous agreements “neither could nor should settle this face-off.” And Hoagland succinctly demonstrates the fatal flaw of the failed appeasement policy of Bill Clinton, which the Democrats continue to advocate: “The aura of invulnerability conveyed by a dozen or so nuclear warheads is for Kim Jong Il a greater asset than anything any American president can grant.”
