SIMPLE OR COMPLEX?
Fred Kaplan has a good analysis of why the adminstration's policy towards North Korea is different from it's policy towards Iraq.
I seem to remember about the time of the "axis of evil" speech, Bush's critics were lamabasting him for seeing things in black and white and failing to respect the complexities and nuances of the real world. Now his critics are criticizing him for "inconsistency" for not pursuing war against North Korea while pursuing war against Iraq. Seems like people are desperate to criticize.
