Krauthammer takes on the Democrats on troop deployment

The estimable Charles Krauthammer skewers the Democrats' new-found support for keeping the troops in Germany where they can watch Al-Qaeda cells in Hamburg or in South Korea where they have becoming sitting ducks thanks to failed Clinton policies.

John Kerry claims that withdrawing troops will send "the wrong signal" in a confrontation with North Korea over its nuclear weapons. Where was he when the Clinton administration sent a signal of abject surrender to the North Koreans by offering two shiny new nuclear reactors, oil shipments and all kinds of diplomatic goodies in return for a paper promise to freeze their nuclear program -- which they now brazenly and proudly claim to have broken long ago?
