Having been in the military and on the North Korean border many times, in the
1970s and 1980s, during the Cold War, it was never cold except from the weather
in a tent and sometimes warm water. President Clinton and Secretary
of State Clinton have provided money and incentives for Korea to continue their
onslaught of nuclear and rocket power to the world, even in the middle eastern
countries. Axis of evil even got away with a lot during the Bush administration
but is flaunting more now, even with the young President and military power.Years away doesn't mean anything as 1993 until now is 20 years and
that has been relatively easy for the Koreans to get to this point. The
Russians and Chinese may not help directly but with North Korean and Iran
scratching each other's backs, they may break the code they need to make it
worthwhile.We never really sanction North Korea but having been in
Korea when the tree chopping incident happened in the 1970s, they have a lot of
power, with the United States military influence going away in East Asia and
treating our allies like Israel badly.
Haven't come across this relevant and pertinent news article in The
Washington Post, The New York Times, MSNBC, or The Christian Science Monitor.
For all the deficiencies of current reporting, there are times that The Deseret
News shines and this is one of those times. Great article for cooler heads.
Thank you for getting me to come back down to earth.
With BO's close friend and campaign financer Jeff Imelt and his company,
GE, still doing business with Iran, some of GE's advanced technology will
make its way to North Korea, shortening the time for them to develop the
missile.I don't think BO knows much about North Korea except
how to bow to their dictator.
