Bush Says Pact With N. Korea Possible (washingtonpost.com)

Some good-ish news at last

Well, at least an edging back towards sanity. After all, why does North Korea want nuclear missiles? Because of fear. Address the fear and we can address the missiles. Further, recalling George Kennan’s long telegram on the USSR mentioned yesterday, an insecure and repressive state needs to find enemies to justify its internal repressiveness. Wind down the military confrontation level, and you can expand detente to wider relations between North and South K. And that will make the “magnetic pull” of the South stronger yet – which will eventually lead to peaceful reunification. Yup, it’s the old

Willy Brandt/Egon Bahr line again. Good to see a little professionalism seeping through.
