The MSM is doing its darnedest to suggest President Trump is the cause of the North Korean nuclear threat that we face today. Only an ignorant buffoon would buy this.
On Oct. 4, 2002, officials from the U.S. State Department flew to Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, and confronted Kim Jong-il’s foreign ministry with evidence that Kim had acquired centrifuges for processing highly enriched uranium, which could be used for building nuclear weapons. To the Americans’ surprise, the North Koreans conceded.
It was an unsettling revelation, coming just as the Bush administration was gearing up for a confrontation with Iraq. This new threat wasn’t imminent; processing uranium is a tedious task; Kim Jong-il was almost certainly years away from grinding enough of the stuff to make an atomic bomb.But the North Koreans had another route to nuclear weapons–a stash of radioactive fuel rods, taken a decade earlier from its nuclear power plant in Yongbyon.
Back in 1994, President Clinton prepared to confront North Korea over CIA reports it had built nuclear warheads and its subsequent threats to engulf Japan and South Korea in “a sea of fire.”
Enter self-appointed peacemaker Carter: The ex-prez scurried off to Pyongyang and negotiated a sellout deal that gave North Korea two new reactors and $5 billion in aid in return for a promise to quit seeking nukes.
Clinton embraced this appeasement as achieving “an end to the threat of nuclear proliferation on the Korean Peninsula” — with compliance verified by international inspectors. Carter wound up winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his dubious efforts.
Nice job, Carter. You sold them weapons and you got a promise. A promise from a militaristic totalitarian regime.
Well, when you put it that way, it sounds pretty bad.
And why is that? Because you know North Koreans will not keep their promise.
By 2002, North Koreans “fessed up.” They’d begun violating the accord on Day One. Four years later, Pyongyang detonated its first nuke.
This story proves another point that we should all take into consideration. They gave ANOTHER COUNTRY $5 billion dollars. We have people starving to death in our country already. Veterans are sick, homeless, and not getting the respect and admiration that they deserve.
