Next Year in Tehran

I particularly liked this part of the President's speech:
America did not ask for this war, and every American wishes it were over. So do I. But the war is not over -- and it will not be over until either we or the extremists emerge victorious. If we do not defeat these enemies now, we will leave our children to face a Middle East overrun by terrorist states and radical dictators armed with nuclear weapons. We are in a war that will set the course for this new century -- and determine the destiny of millions across the world.
One hopes this was quickly translated into French and Farsi. Hell, we ought to drop leaflets over Paris and Tehran so they get the message.

What about Korean? Have we gone to work translating that? 'Cause, you know, Iran and Syria are scary and all, but they don't have a sea lane to San Francisco.

North Korea doesn't present quite the same problem. They already have nukes, which means that bombing or commando raids to ruin facilities doesn't really work, except perhaps to push the Dear Leader into doing something more stupid than usual. There are those who suggest that the next crisis will not involve North Korean belligerence, but North Korean collapse. See HERE.
