‘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.
“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.
