Re: After six years on Bush's watch, North Korea goes nuclear
Post by Francois Cellier
Let's also look at the other side of the coin. Clinton signed an agreement with North Korea in 1994, in which the U.S. agreed, not to attack North Korea. In return, North Korea agreed, not to develop Nuclear arms. Bush repealed that agreement in 2002, placed North Korea among the "axis of evil," and started talking about preemptive wars. In 2003, he started his first preemptive war against one of the nations on his "axis of evil" list, a country that had never attacked the U.S. before, nor threatened it in any way.
Frankly, I can't truly blame the North Korean's for taking out an "insurance contract" against a preemptive first strike by the U.S.
