Slate has a reasonably balanced discussion of the differences between Iraq and North Korea in terms of how the US should deal with the threats from those nations. However, the author misses the biggest difference between the two situtations, which is that North Korean regime is dependent on the charity of other countries while Iraq is a valued trading partner and can easily pay for itself. Given that the article claims to deal with "unspeakable truths", I think the fact that the US is propping up the most repressive regime on the planet might have made it in there.
