Skip to comments.North Korea: Blame falls on Clinton, GW, O [aw!m vanity]
Posted on 08/09/2017 10:11:22 AM PDT by Arthur Wildfire! March
Bill Clinton, GW Bush, and Obama have one thing in common -- they had a chance to take out North Korea's nuclear threat with minimal risk to the US.
Politically speaking, I believe it is really that simple.
No matter how Trump handles this, he is trying to solve a crisis that NEVER should have arisen.
There was no ounce of prevention, but the future cure could be unspeakable not only in terms of human lives, but also the worst environmental disaster in human history.
Bill Clinton on the “Agreed Framework”:
This could prove to be the greatest mistake ever made by a US president, spanning three administrations incl. three reelections.
Is it that simple? How was he to have done it?
I’m not Clinton apologist. I’m just asking. This is the same guy that didn’t even want Bin Laden when he was handed to him on a silver platter. Do you really think he would have had the brass ones to provoke China and Russia?
What about US being provoked? When does that ever factor in?
We have the worst most corrupt diplomats in the history of Planet Earth.
You are right about Bin Laden. “I pleaded with the Saudis to take’im.”
Bush called N.Korea a part of the ‘Axis of Evil’ but also did nothing. There are obviously reasons these guys did not act.
“We have the worst most corrupt diplomats in the history of Planet Earth.”
That is the absolute truth! Never met a diplo-dunk-state-dep-foreign-service puke that could be trusted as far as thrown....
I understand what you mean.
I could not help hearing my mother yell at my brother after he’d beaten me up: “You are supposed to be the older brother; it doesn’t matter what he did.”
Of course, I always started it after some perceived slight. And he always got in trouble.
I find the use of “environemtal issues” by the author rather comical, and here is why.
Who, how many, and to what depth, have other piece writers decried “environmental issues” with the Gulf War, and the long-present one, in Iraq and Afghanistan?
The present author sees the chilling spectre of nuclear war, and fears rightly. Now, what about all those pounds of depleted uranium projectiles already spewed all over “the sand”?
Why deal with something today that you can put off for your successors to deal with?
All these politicians get promises for jobs in the private sector of Wall Street or Washington Lobbys after they rotate out of “public service”. They wont deal with the enormous national debt either. They just heap it all on their Children and grandchildren. It’s not their problem. Their only problems are looking good to voters and where their next contribution is coming from. Lies for the voters. Promises to the lobbyists. Never ever deal with real problems that can be put off.
‘Bush called N.Korea a part of the Axis of Evil but also did nothing. There are obviously reasons these guys did not act.’
It was easier to pay off NK with food [sold in the black market] and kick the can down the road.
But this is the very outcome we had predicted every step of the way. I ALWAYS, throughout my time here, advocated for preventing this even if it meant nuclear strikes in NK.
Whatever it takes.
So did many others in this forum. It was long term thinking, common sense, a no-brainer.
The author wants to expose enviro-wackos as hypocrites.
I don’t know who that goofy author is, but I know a guy who is still worried about Japanese fallout [Fukoshima?] reaching California.
Six Party Talks
What exactly does this North Korean clown want?
He should be asked what he wants. Why he wants to threaten the world.
If he responds with taking South Korea, it is a good opportunity to explain why those in South Korea are very prosperous and why they would not want to be part of North Korea.
“was easier to pay off NK ...”
And the Chinese Communists get their cut also.
That’s what this is about now.
Every new administration N Korea does something like this.
There’ll be some sort of agreement brokered by China in some way where N Korea and Chinese Communists get paid off.
Missiles aimed with technology from Loral shipped to China, and armed with uranium’s from Hillary’s deal with Russia?
