    LOL, the NYTimes seems to think so. How he is in the lead sentence is a bit confusing, but no bias here :rolleyes:

    i think george bush still has the upper hand here because

    (a) Bush is basically supported by all nations involved, with the exception possibly of S. Korea. Japan, China, Russia, and even bystander nations like Taiwan and India, appreciate his stance on this issue and others much more than a kerry administration would.

    (b) bush deals from a position of strength, the n. koreans know he's got the balls to stand up to them

    (c) bush's approach, while flawed, is still better than kerry's would be from what kerry has made known up until now. bush has shown innovation in dealing with n. korea (the six nation summit system and sending missile defense ships (seventh fleet naval ships) on deployment to track n. korean missile activity)

    Nato, I was being facetious. Trust me, Kerry couldn't do a thing about NK. Kim would eat him alive.

    Of course he will; by selling out his country the way he did during the Vietnam war ! :2guns:

    Should he be elected, we can only hope John Hinckley has an identical twin !!!
