What the hell is Nick Kristof trying to say in today’s column?

There’s no way to excerpt it and still give you a complete sense of the thing, so go read it and come back here.

Near as I can tell, Kristof says that North Korea is becoming more dangerous. And that Bush will just sit on his hands as the DPRK builds nuke after nuke. And that it’s somehow out fault for not talking to the Dear Leader enough, even though we sent him all the promised food and oil. And that somehow “engagement” — more talking — will get them to disarm.

At least I think that’s what Kristof means. Honestly, I can’t make sense of it.
