North Korea.... Again

Things are not getting any better with North Korea... obviously. I have been saying for over a year now that the approach that we are taking towards NK was not going to work... and it is not. I am wondering how the GOP is going to spin this in order to make themselves the national security hawks on NK and Iran when it is they who have been in control for the past 6 years as things have gone down hill, but I am sure they will work it somehow.

Even though it was on Bush's watch that both have become the menace that they are...

Even though it is the war in Iraq that has sapped our resources...

Even though it is Bush's foreign policy that has but us in the hole in regards to public support around the world...

Even though it was Bush's choice of Bolton to head the NK envoy for 4 years that led to complete deadlock in negotiations (or lack thereof)...

I am sure they will somehow try to pin this on democrats and claim we will all die if you vote for a change in Congress.

And, any guesses on the number of "Orange Alerts" we will have in October leading up to the mid term elections? Notice we didn't have any after the 2004 elections?
