Notes: It's odd. In Iraq we have United Nations' inspectors on the ground unable to find so-called weapons of mass destruction. In North Korea, the "Great Leader" Kim Jong Il kicked out U.N. inspectors and openly claims that the country has re-started its nuclear program. Yet George W. Bush is ramping up for the mother-of-all regime changes in Iraq, not North Korea.

We all know that Saddam Hussein has chemical and biological weapons. We even gave him some biological agents when America was his ally in his war with Iran during the 1980s. Still, most everyone agrees that Iraq does not have nuclear weapons. And everyone agrees that North Korea has a nuclear reactor capable of manufacturing nuclear weapons. Moreover, the country probably has some nuclear warheads. Though that would seemingly make North Korea Bush's focus of attention, in fact, it makes North Korea an unlikely target because of the devastation that war would bring.

In the meantime, United States diplomats have secretly met with Iranian government officials seeking Iran's cooperation during any American attack on Iraq. Iran was reported to be cool to the overture, but not negative since it wants a say in the Shiite's in southern Iraq having role in any new government.

We have the Axis-of-Evil country we think we can take -- Iraq. We have the Axis-of-Evil country that's too scary to take -- North Korea. And we have the Axis-of-Evil country that we're trying to pal up to -- Iran. So much for the "Axis of Evil."

One universally understood rule about weapons of mass destruction is recognized among nations: There are good weapons of mass destruction and bad weapons of mass destruction. Ours are good. Theirs are bad.
