    It is actually possible for Kim Jung Il to be nuts, North Korea to be dangerous...and for US, Chinese, Japanese and South Korean policy to be lousy...all at the same time.

    I have never understood the folks who want to make a dictator who opposes the US into something he's not.  

    We should not have invaded Iraq...but Saddam Hussein was a despot who used chemical weapons on the Kurds.

    We should not invade Iran...but Ahmadinejad is a holocaust denying, loon who is the public face of a country that actively supports Hezbollah.

    I could go on.

    An enemy of the United States, even one who gets it right some of the time (see Hugo Chavez) is not necessarily a good guy, and may actually be nuts.

    Per the NY times today,

    In his first match at Pyongyang Lanes, Kim bowled a perfect 300, according to state-run news media, which did not say whether the bumpers were raised. But that is nothing compared with the five holes in one and 38 under par that Kim reportedly shot in his maiden round of golf. No word on whether the course included a windmill, lion’s head and pop-up gopher.  

    Its not just that this is unbelievable...its that fucking nuts that the state run media in North Korea would even think this was something to lie about...I mean seriously...the guy is nuts.

    In opposing US warmongering (which is a genuine problem), do not fall prey to the mistake of championing the evil, the insane or the just plain nuts.
