The Squeaky Wheel
Looks like Vladimir Putin's harsh words in Munich last month got some results. Which means that in the past week, the Bush administration has:
- Decided to negotiate with the N. Koreans;
- Agreed to join Iran and Syria in a regional conference about Iraq;
- Begun to actually treat Russia like the global power it is.
You'd almost get the feeling they're toying with the idea of re-joining the reality-based community. Seriously, though, what goes through your head when the collective delusion wears off and you realize that you very nearly brought the whole house of cards down?
