He'll have my head for forgetting his birthday. Join in the celebration.

Kerry seems to have a decent policy on North Korea. The last paragraph is the most important:

There is no guarantee that this crisis can be resolved diplomatically. But going to the table with a comprehensive approach based on the hard realities that confront us demonstrates a commitment to negotiation that this administration has yet to convey. It signals our allies that we are prepared to go the last mile to resolve this crisis peacefully, and, should our effort fail, it strengthens our hand -- and our credibility in the eyes of the world -- to undertake a military option.

Would Kerry really be willing to risk thousands of American lives? Probably not, unless all of those stories are true, and the American people become outraged by them. Or if the next president can convince the American people that we are in danger.
