So now they say a mushroom cloud is better than a smoking gun ...posted by The Vidiot @ 6:35 PM Permalink Remember when Bushco was blaming North Korea having nukes on Clinton? Ehh, not so much ...
On her trip to Asia this week, Rice has come close to saying the test was a net plus for the United States. She has tried to deflect criticism by saying the test was an affirmation, rather than a failure, of the Bush administration's policy of trying to draw China deeper into negotiations on North Korea.They worked for 2 years and the result is NK has nukes!? How can NK having nukes possibly be a successful foreign policy!? Members of Bushco rooted for the test!?
Before North Korea announced it had detonated a nuclear device, some senior officials even said they were quietly rooting for a test, believing that would finally clarify the debate within the administration.
[Rice said regarding the recent UN resolution] "Not bad for a couple years' work."
Bush refused to talk to NK and called them a member of the 'axis of evil.' Bush refuses to talk to Iran, while they are allegedly developing nukes, and labels them a member of the 'axis of evil.'
I am no fan of any repressive regime, but after Bush has attacked a country that didn't posses WMDs, (see Iraq), if you were in charge of the other 2 legs of the axis of evil wouldn't you want to defend your country against a repressive regime that refuses to negotiate and has WMDs?
