North Korea Talk


Josh Marshall has a piece out today criticizing the president’s Korea policy, or lack thereof. Marshall’s piece, which takes a swipe at me, is part and parcel of a unified attempt by the Democrats to blame president Bush for the mess in Korea (a mess that can be laid at the door of the Democrats, if anyone). See also this piece by New Republic editor Peter Beinart, which highlights the same passage that Marshall takes from my article, “The Other Imminent Danger.” In that passage, I note that our apparent lack of policy on North Korea may in fact be something else: “…if our policy is to strike when we may and must, silence makes a good deal of sense.”
