Many people ridiculed Bush 2002 why Bush grouped North Korea with Iran and Iraq in the Axis of Evil. It seemed counter-intuitive. Iraq was a secular Sunni regime with some ties to Al Qaida and an agenda against the U.S. Iran is a Islamo-fascist theocracy with nuclear ambitions. North Korea is a closed-off Marxist-Leninist totalitarian dictatorship. What could the three groups have in common to group them into an Axis?
