U.S. calm, blogosphere worked up on North Korea
David Adesnik has an excellent round-up of blogospheric discussion of the proposed North Korea accord.
Meanwhile, Steven Weisman's latest report in the New York Times makes me feel just a smidgen better about the accord:
Lavrov and Hill's statements are reassuring -- they indicate that the other four members of the six-party talks agree with the American interpretation of the Beijing agreement.
And -- again -- this was the point of the six-party talks; they insured that all the major players in the region were on the same page.posted by Dan on 09.21.05 at 10:16 AM
And around and round we go. I dont think this is the best way to address the situation. I dont think NK is serious, but in that case instead of taking a hard line and letting KJI point his finger at us, we should play along and put the ball back in their court. It takes a long time to build a nuclear reactor. It takes a few hours to turn one off. We should play ball with these snakes and back them into a corner where even the Chinese cant deny they are the recalcitrant party. Sticking to our guns may make us feel better but it doesnt advance our agenda.posted by: Mark Buehner on 09.21.05 at 10:16 AM [permalink]
The Blogosphere lives to be all worked up about things. It reminds me of the pink goo in Ghostbusters II -- always upset over something. You are an oasis from thisposted by: don surber on 09.21.05 at 10:16 AM [permalink]
