Bad faith over Korea

Statement on North Korean Nuclear Test|21Oct06|Socialist Worker: "The nuclear test is the culmination of five years of the US administration's policy towards North Korea."

Read that again. The nuclear test is the culmination of what? Of the escalation of totalitarian North Korea's militaristic culture, war-like posturing and long-held nuclear ambitions? No, of American foreign policy of course!

(It's not just the SWP. Here's someone else who thinks the same thing: Bill Weinberg says "Bush's intransigence essentially prompted North Korea to cross the nuclear threshold".)
