Things are not getting any better with our relations with North Korea. North Korea is a rogue state, without question. But 6 years of grid lock show that Bush foreign policy towards North Korea has been a failure as well. Shortly after Bush took office, he decided to take a hard line with NK, and relations have deteriorated ever since. Bush's one-size-fits-all foreign policy has done nothing to heel the progression of our two most dangerous adversaries, North Korea and Iran.
Sometimes, confrontation is a self fulfilling prophesy. It does not take a genius to figure out why these two countries are moving the path that they are.
