If we forget history, we are bound to repeat it. C’mon folks: this just happened not too long ago. Many heads nowadays are either buried in the sand or buried up butts.
Yesterday, N. Korea detonated its largest nuclear weapon (its 5th nuclear test); 10 times larger than its previous test and registering an earthquake of magnitude 5+. Read the comments below from President Clinton after his nuclear non-proliferation deal with N. Korea in 1994. The words that were used were very similar to the words used by Obama after the recent deal with Iran; as well as the words used by Hillary to support the Iranian deal. N. Korea has also just accomplished successful long range missile tests as well as a successful missile launch from a submarine.
Hillary has obviously forgotten about her husband’s 1994 deal with N. Korea (you probably did too, given the 24 hour news cycle….so I’m reminding you), a deal that was “good for our allies, and good for the safety of the entire world. It reduces the danger of the threat of nuclear spreading in the region…..Under the agreement, North Korea has agreed to freeze its existing nuclear program and to accept international inspection of all existing facilities.”
The words used by Bill Clinton are very similar to the words used by Hillary Clinton when discussing the recent deal with Iran. Just the other day (09/07/2016) with Matt Lauer, Hillary claimed the Iran deal “put a lid on the nuclear program (in Iran) and imposed intrusive inspections…..we have made the world safer; we just need to make sure it’s enforced.” The game plan for the Iranian deal is for them to halt their program and to accept international inspections….the same game plan that was implemented (and failed) with respect to North Korea.
How stupid are we? If you want to know the answer, just ask Israel.
