Bush Remains Firm on North Korea

The Bush Administration continues to insist on six-party talks in Korea, rejecting Pyongyang's call for the Kerry Doctrine.

Sadly we're doing almost all the lifting here.
The more hawkish elements of the administration advocate bringing the North Korea issue before the council, which withheld action after the six-party process got under way. North Korea was put on the council agenda after it evicted U.N. nuclear inspectors and withdrew from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
Going through the UN is hawkish?
In Sapporo, Japan, Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi came down firmly against the possibility of sanctions, saying they could end any possibility that Pyongyang might rejoin the six-nation talks and end any chance of their success.

"I understand the feelings behind growing calls for economic sanctions, but dialogue and pressure are important," Koizumi told reporters.
Yes by all means, we must make economic sanctions the last resort, and rely instead on pressure.

The globalist crowd continues to spin into deeper irrelevancy.
