Let me see. Clinton was in the process of normalizing relations. The IAEA was monitoring NK nuclear sites. probably not all but enough to significantly curtail any weapons programs. NK was not producing plutonium. And as far as I know, they never tested a nuclear device.russ_watters said:Indeed - he's been busy dealing with a country that Clinton had 8 years to do something about, with little success. :uhh:
Bush changed policy toward NK almost as soon as he took over the office. Go ahead, blame Clinton for this and say his policies were a failure. And perhaps you are correct, his policy may not have worked, but at least he was getting some positive results. Bush's policy is escalating the situation, unless you think NK testing nukes is a positive development.
russ_watters said:edit: btw, that's three years (plus a few months) since the current situation started with North Korea pulling out of the NPT.
And why did they pull out? Oh I guess it must have been Clinton's fault.
