Australia suggests "diplomatic force" against North Korea.
Australia's Prime Minister John Howard says he is not advocating regime change in North Korea.
Mr Howard says if the world had not been prepared to stand up to Iraq, North Korea would not be taking notice of diplomatic pressure.
You mean they're taking notice of it now? I'll be damned. And why no regime change? If it's good enough for Iraq, why not North Korea? It's not like it's not being run by a maniacal dictator presiding like a tyrant over 22 million starving people, after all; that's basically what the CIA Factbook says. It couldn't possibly have anything to do with the fact that North Korea has nukes, could it?
