Bolton's gone, talks are on...

"The world welcomed the latest news out of Pyongyang indicating that it will rejoin the 6-Party Talks now that John Bolton is no longer involved. The U.S. has reversed course and is willing to talk to North Korea, stop saber rattling, mustache waving and blustering, and eat some crow to get the North to the table. But there is more," writes Patrick O'Heffernan.

"With adult diplomats now in charge instead of neocon ideologues, the 6-Party Talks have in only 3 sessions agreed on major points: a multilateral dialogue; a Nuclear Free Korean Peninsula; an inspection system; and a permanent regional security forum. This last point is key – it means that the Bush Administration, sans Bolton, has finally recognized that negotiating makes more sense than saber rattling, mustache waving and blustering."
