The Foreign Policy Worldview of Glenn Reynolds
I am sure people read Glenn Reynolds' blog InstuPundit for nuanced punditry on foreign policy.

GEORGE BUSH IS NOW THE MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE WORLD: People always say that about Presidents, of course, but usually it's only notionally true. Now, if he wants to nuke Baghdad, there is nobody to say him nay -- and damned few who would want to. That's a danger if he goes off half-cocked, but I don't think there's much risk of that. But I wonder: do the people behind this assault realize what this means?

North Korea fires artillery barrage on South. If they start anything, I say nuke ‘em. And not with just a few bombs. They’ve caused enough trouble — and it would be a useful lesson for Iran, too. We can’t afford another Korean war, but hey, we’re already dismantling warheads. . . .
As we can see, Reysnolds' foreign policy evolved in nine years from nuking Iraq to nuking North Korea. In Reynolds' defense, he is an idiot.
