Joe Conason crows that the Bush foreign policy is crumbling, but tonight Colin Powell says in an interview on NBC that the President "has always said" he will act without foreign support if necessary. No one seems to have considered the possibility that the humiliating fiasco of Bush's Korea 'policy', culminating in his having to turn to a democratic governor for help, has done nothing but force him to find another way to strike back at his doubters, and at the doubters of America's strength. The argument follows that he can't back down twice.
