President Bush has identified the "axis of evil" as the source of trouble in the world today: Iraq, Iran, North Korea. The US has invaded Iraq and is now threatening Iran. Will it also threaten North Korea?

The neocons in the US government hope so. As the Asia Times reports,

The US foreign policy hawks who pushed for the Iraq invasion are now pushing President George W Bush to take extreme measures with North Korea, including planning for an economic embargo or for military strikes to bring about regime change and a better class of dictator.

These plans were allegedly discussed at the APEC meeting in Chile last week.

Will the US actually begin a campaign for "regime change" in North Korea? Will that include military strikes?

Have the neocons learned no lessons from the Iraq invasion?
