Analysis: Tough Talk From Bush Team Didn't Stop North Korea
Click here to read the key points, and to check out a very funny cartoon at Bush's expense.

That five years later, North Korea has tested a nuclear weapon will be widely interpreted as a sign of the failure of the tougher approach favored by the Bush team.

1. His simplistic lanquage
just does'nt work. He said,On Opec holding up oil supplies, "I will tell them to open the spigots." On NK test firing a Nuclear test, "They better hope they don't." It is all cowboy talk with nothing to back it up. He attacked Iraq, basically a defenseless nation because he new they had nothing and he wanted to finish the job his daddy did'nt do.

2. it's ironic
that the Bush Administration today called North Korea's actions "provocative." What other word better describes the U.S. actions in Iraq?
