The American weasel

Re: The Sun editorial "Axis of weasels" (Feb. 15, 2003) forgot to include the U.S. among the so-called "weasel" nations. We need only look to North Korea's defiance of America, and its in-your-face full-throttle determination to become a nuclear power, to see how very, very weasely a real threat is handled by Washington. That regime will not only survive but will thrive in the months and years ahead. Unless and until, of course, North Koreans replace Iraqis as our villains du jour and their "Dear Leader" starts to get lumped with Adolf Hitler.
