axis of evil watch
Counterspin Central has this interesting comparison between Iraq, the alleged threat* of which the Administration hawks keep insisting must be met with nothing short of total war, and North Korea, with which the Administration will reportedly enter new negotiations.
I'll ask again...prior to 9/11, wasn't the proposed missile defense system to be oriented, if you will, toward the Pacific?
*In case this needs to be said, I'm not saying Iraq poses no threat at all--and no one credible is--merely saying that I remain unconvinced that Iraq, which has been contained and deterred for more than a decade--is suddenly uncontainable and undeterrable. Repeated but unsupported assertions to the contrary and ominous speculation does not cut it, thanks.
