UPDATE: You know, there's a lot of Europe inside the outer ring...
UPDATE2: Oh, in case you've heard nonsense about this being GWB's fault, the 1999 report (you know, before Mr. Bush was elected) said:
Among the issues that need to be addressed are the following:
* Current U.S. policy is not effectively addressing the threat posed by North Korean weapons of mass destruction, missiles and their proliferation.
* U.S. assistance sustains a repressive and authoritarian regime, and is not effectively monitored.
* Current U.S. policy does not effectively address the issues posed by international criminal activity of the North Korean government, such as narcotics trafficking, support for international terrorism and counterfeiting.
* Current U.S. policy does not effectively advance internationally-recognized standards of human rights in North Korea, including liberating political prisoners and abolishing prisons for hungry children.
* Current U.S. policy does not effectively encourage the political and economic liberalization of North Korea.
UPDATE3: (7/7/06) Belmont Club notes some European interest in missile defense here.
