Hasn't everybody come to this conclusion already

A beautiful editorial at the International Herald Tribune today decries the "intellectual poverty" of the latest Bush administration security pronouncements. (http://www.iht.com/articles/2006/03/19/news/edoped.php)
So the question that I've been asking all along is why does the one nuclear power (North Korea) continue to get a free pass in the international invasion lottery, but countries without (Iraq, Iran) are held to account.
Three years ago when this all started, I said that if the US was actually going to invade, then it followed that Hussein didn't have the fabled WMD, and that Bush knew it. No American president will put troops in the line of fire of such weapons. This is doubly true when it's just in the name self-aggrandisement.
