I wish Rice and Rumsfeld would go to Tokyo, stand with the government there, and say that the Korean problem is best solved by the regional power, Japan, with America in direct support. Subcontracting the resolution of Korea to Japan should have the effect of focusing the minds of all concerned. America has had 50 years to resolve things there, without much effect. Japan, on the other hand, has shown that they know how to deal with the Korean peninsula. It is time that they get another crack at it.
