Here’s some good news (for a change) on North Korea. We’ve had numerous reports of Chinese hesitance to help the U.S. curb North Korea’s nuclear program. But this article suggests that, since our invasion of Iraq, the Chinese may have forced the North Koreans to stop their provocations. (Thanks to ParaPundit, by the way, for the link and the comments.) The remarkable thing here is that the Chinese are apparently using our invasion of Iraq to point out to the North Koreans that the United States is not a paper tiger. That is exactly what the administration hoped this war would achieve.
