Iran/North Korea: Truly an Axis?

The State Department's top North Korea negotiator testified before Congress today that Iranians were on hand to marvel at Pyongyang's 4th of July rocket launches. Bad news. What appeared to have been a rhetorical linking of the countries in the President's "Axis of Evil" speech, may instead have been the launch of a self-fulfilling prophecy.
