Bush and North Korea

One of the main features of anti-Bush arguments that is particularly unconvincing is that the criticism is so total. It is not just Iraq, everything he does has to be wrong.

Take North Korea. This New York Times op-ed gives a different point of view:

What Bush Did Right on North Korea

The argument that Bush has dropped the ball over North Korea is especially daft for many reasons but the significant point that Bush opponents miss is that with North Korea we are not dealing with normal, rational, liberal people. That makes negotiation with them particularly difficult.

Where I believe the Bush Administration has shot itself in the foot on N Korea is trying to wave away a seismically measured explosion as a forest fire.

Given their lack of credibility on other areas, that sure sets off the alarm bells.
