A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.
Thursday, February 10, 2005 Thanks a ton: Former President Bill Clinton's 1994 Agreed Framework with North Korea, negotiated by Jimmy "see-no-evil" Carter and lauded by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright has brought us to this: North Korea says it has nukes and the rest of the world can pound sand.
This is what happens when you don't take foreign policy seriously and choose to punt problems down the road to the next administration.
Actually, the North Korea problem dates back to Truman and his failure to let MacArthur attack China. Then Eisenhower worked out a Truce, so he bears some responsibility. Then, of course, Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon(he even recognized the Chinese Pinkos who supported N. Korea), Ford, Carter, Reagan, and Bush I did nothing to bring democracy to N. Koreans and divert their intentions from Nuclear weapons. Dang it! I knew that Bush II, who focused on elimating all the WMD's in Iraq, would be the one President not at fault. I just didn't know it would be all Clinton's fault. Gimme a break!
Don't you get it? All engagement means you're guilty of letting the N. Koreans build nukes. Obviously the only answer is you ignore the problem, as Bush 2 has. Just like they did with terrorism pre-9/11. And we see how that worked out. Wonder if Condi has caught up with all her reading yet? http://www.heraldsun.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,5478,12216311%255E401,00.html
