Bolton on North Korea

I was both looking forward to and dreading John Bolton’s inevitable op-ed about the Bush administration’s latest capitulation to North Korea, because I knew it would be right on target and utterly disheartening. In today’s WSJ, he does not disappoint, demonstrating how the Bush team got schooled, ending up with an agreement that gives Pyongyang everything it wants, while the U.S. has little to show for it. Based on its history of violating agreements, there’s no reason to believe North Korea will live up to this one, which is both a slap in the face to our allies Japan and South Korea, and a lesson to rogue nations such as Iran how they can manipulate U.S. policmakers through intransigence. One thing that Bolton doesn’t mention, but which absolutely infuriates me, is that the deal turns the state sponsors of terror list into a bargaining chip, rendering it completely useless as an indicator of what nations are, you know, sponsoring terrorism.
