MR. MULTILATERAL….The Los Angeles Times conducted an interview with Colin Powell yesterday and printed it in today’s edition. Here’s an excerpt about how we’re dealing with North Korea:

A: Our position is clear. We want to enter into a multilateral dialogue with North Korea and with other interested nations….It is South Korea that has an agreement with North Korea for no nuclear developments on the peninsula. It is China who has a solid, strong policy of no nuclearization of the Korean peninsula. Japan feels the same way. So do we. So does Russia. So therefore Mr. Multilateral wishes to deal with this in a multilateral setting….

Huh? Who the heck is “Mr. Multilateral”?
