Kick The Can Foreign Policy?

Fire of Liberty

John O'Sullivan has a good column in today's Chicago Sun-Times which points out the the tentative agreement reached between the United States (Its respected partners: China, Japan, Russia, and South Korea) and North Korea is doomed to failure at the get go. It'd be good if these foreign policy makers in the US would pay attention to the past and realize that the North Koreans are pretty good at playing games at getting what they want but fail to abide to their own part of the deal. We'd be better off with some hard hitting tactics with regards to the North Koreans than the failed "kick-the-can-down-the-road" policies of the Clinton era. The folks toiling under Kim Jong Il and the American people deserve better than this.
