A Moderately Good Korea Move

When liberals and neocons are equally outraged and embittered, then you know that something has gone right.

But Donald Trump's deal with North Korea, though welcome in itself, is nowhere near as good as the deal that was struck with Iran by Barack Obama, of whom I was not generally a fan. Obama's détante with Cuba was also better than this.

Consider the reaction to that, or to the Iran deal, or to this deal with North Korea, if it, or anything remotely like it, had been advocated by Jeremy Corbyn. I am not uncritical of him, either. But even so.
