North Korea Says 'No Nukes'

North Korea has agreed to give up its nuclear weapons, in return for an affirmation by the United States that it has no nuclear weapons on the Korean peninsula, and that the U.S. has no intention to invade North Korea.

Is the North serious? Who knows.

It should not matter. The MSM should trumpet George Bush's phenomenal and unprecedented foreign policy triumph here--though of course they won't. Even if the agreement unravels (as it most likely will) the press habitually focuses on the image of success rather than the substance of it, and so the editorial pages of major newspapers across the land should be lobbying for Bush to get the Nobel Peace Prize. The Left wing should be patting Bush on the back for this major victory in the War on Terror.

Does that sound ridiculous? Just imagine if Bill Clinton had achieved something like this.

Perhaps though, in the most optimistic scenario, this is two members of the Axis of Evil down, one to go. Keep hope alive!
