North Korea

U.S. foreign policy

North Korea just tested another nuclear weapon. The reason that was given: Korea’s fear of U.S. aggression

This is another consequence of having an administration that would rather threaten than talk; that would rather attack than negotiate; that would rather have the world fear us than respect us.

Is there any wonder why so many Americans want this corrupt, inept government changed? It’s time that those with eyes to see and ears to hear to stand up and say “no more” to this administration and this Congress.

Sheds light on Iraq

North Korea’s tes of a nuclear device brings into sharp contrast the debate over the Iraq war. Administrations of both parties have tried to negotiate, sanction and use international peer pressure to stop North Korea’s WMD development. We know the result.

We also know Saddam Hussein, who had far more monetary resources than Kim Jong Il, will not develop nuclear weapons.

The final resolution in Iraq is still unknown. The result of doing little and wishing for the best with North Korea is now well-documented.

Republicans are delusional. Bush has had six years to deal with North Korea but he chose to invade Iraq and that is the reason that N Korea and Iran are doing what they are doing. They KNOW that the U.S. can't do anything about it. The military is stretched to the breaking point and somehow that makes you feel safer.


North Korea having nukes proves the value of invading Iraq? Now that is a reach in reasoning that is impressive.

And frightening.
