North Korea to Clinton, Albright and Carter--Screw You!

Sphere: Related Content

Let's utilize the way-back machine and travel to 1994 when the worst US President ever tried his skillful hand at diplomacy with NoKo while teaming up with the Clinton administration:

Under the final terms of the Agreed Framework approved in October of 1994, Clinton agreed to provide the "Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea" (DPRK) with two light water nuclear reactors and a massive allotment of oil. The U.S. agreed to ship 500,000 metric tons of oil annually in response to the North's pretense that the energy-starved backwater had developed the nuclear facility to generate power. These shipments have cost taxpayers more than $800 million to date (article written in 2003--ed) - a bargain compared with the $6 billion spent on constructing the nuclear reactors, which now empower North Korea to produce 100 nuclear bombs each year.


In 1994, when Carter went to North Korea to strike a deal, he didn't have the support or authority of the U.S. government to agree to anything. That didn't stop him from announcing on television that he'd made a deal. And the fact that the Clinton administration was out of the loop didn't stop Al Gore from persuading Bill Clinton to leap on the proposal, even though it basically surrendered every major American demand, starting with our insistence that North Korea completely and immediately stop its nuclear weapon program.

The appeasment policy worked out real well for the world, didn't it?

UNITED NATIONS — The U.S. responded Monday to North Korea's claim of a successful first test of a nuclear weapon by calling on the United Nations Security Council to enact wide-ranging sanctions, including a trade ban on military and luxury items, the power to inspect all cargo entering or leaving the country, and freezing assets connected with its weapons programs.

...The U.S. Geological Survey, however, said it detected a 4.2-magnitude tremor at 10:35 p.m. EDT, which could mean the device was potentially deadlier than initially believed. Australia also said there was seismic confirmation that North Korea conducted a nuclear test.
"It was a success from their perspective in that they achieved a nuclear yield, though that is not very difficult," the official said. "It's within their technical capabilities."

Many, many updates at Hot Air and Defense Tech. The left either hides their head in the sand or blames Bush even though Madeline Albright, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton claimed victory at the time.

Update: Blah, blah, blah. The donks smell blood and are grasping at anything to put them over the top. Such unserious people when major issues are at hand.
