I was in basic training at Ft Campbell back then...
The DI's told us all our MOS training had been canceled
and nobody had to worry about fighting in Viet Nam as
we all (DI's included) were off to Korea to get our guys back.

Needless to say we did not go...

We should have ...imo

I can't believe we let them parade the boat around like that. A MOAB would solve the problem nicely.

Or if folks don't want to be too obvious, Thor's Hammer, Smart Rocks, or Brilliant Pebbles would do the job nicely. I will be mightily disappointed if we do not have that capability yet.

The 1999 event was...

Under the Clinton Administration after Bill Clinton gave North Korea repeated bribes to be good folks. The appeasement resulted in this.

Thank you, NYT, for not bothering to put any of this in context, you lunk heads.

When Bush administration officials rattle sabers at North Korea, they're helping to keep Kim Jong Il in power.

Then later:

The Bush administration's dismissal of serious, direct diplomacy has made Korea more dangerous.

The author seems to say that if we take Kim seriously, we strengthen him, but if we ignore him, we strengthen him. He contradicts himself, leading me to believe that Bush's multinational approach is about the best we can do until we see a need for aggressive action.

Wasn't there something similar when Gerald Ford was President or was that the Pueblo crew coming home ?
