MEANWHILE, IN ASIA: Don't miss this Baltimore Sun article suggesting an apparent policy shift in Beijing, toward getting tough with North Korea. This is a very encouraging development. A good diplomat should convince other countries that it's in their interest to do something in the U.S. interest. In this case, our goal of a non-nuclear North Korea coincides with a rational Chinese goal; as Glenn Reynolds puts it, "nobody, but nobody wants a regime as kooky as North Korea's on their border, armed with nuclear weapons." (Follow that link for an update on just how "kooky" the North Korean regime is.)
