: First question

: " President Bush is trying to bring all of North Koreas neighbors together in a coalition, but Kerry thinks that this is wrong and the US should go back to one-on-one with North Korea even though this is what brought the nuclear nightmare that America is facing today. But he blamed *the North Koreans* getting nukes Bushes fault when the materials for building them came under the prior administration "

: Could you tell me why the last sentence used * the North Korean*? Can we say the North Korean

: second question

: " To judge this debate as if it were a forensics tournament is to miss the point. "
