Finally, Bush earns some of my respect

Yahoo reports that Iraq Could Be Disarmed Peacefully, Bush Say:

"The stated policy of our government, the previous administration and this administration, is regime change, because we don't believe he is going to change," Bush said after talks with NATO Secretary General George Robertson.

"However, if he were to meet all the conditions of the United Nations, the conditions that I've described very clearly in terms that everybody can understand, that in itself will signal the regime has changed."

Will this move succeed? Probably not. But this was a long overdue move. Finally Bush has opened up the possibility of a peaceful solution to this standoff. Kudos to Bush for one of the most savvy moves he's ever made.

Could this move have anything to do with the news that North Korea is openly pursuing nuclear arms?
