We hear a lot about what is going on with North Korea….most of it is sounding a lot like the pre-war rhetoric coming out of the Bush White House prior to the invasion of Iraq and the search for the WMDs he did not have…..
But with all this about what NK is planning to do with their nukes…..was there a time when all this would be a moot point?
North Korea’s nuclear weapons probably aren’t going anywhere. The test of an intercontinental ballistic missile on Friday is the latest disconcerting development in a decades-long slide toward a nuclear-armed North Korea capable of striking the U.S. homeland and its allies. As past administrations repeatedly failed to make the hard choices, the Trump administration now faces an uphill, if not impossible, battle as it pursues a denuclearized Korean Peninsula.
The U.S. had one chance to stop North Korea in its tracks a little over two decades ago. It would have been bloody, but significantly less devastating than a conflict would be now.
Once again this NK situation could be a “crisis” of our own making.
I wish more people would care about the situations that our “leaders” get us into and see that they did nothing when they should have…..and then they overreact to the situation that they helped create.
A great foreign policy. (sarcasm)
