This is the logic that I can’t understand. Where is it stated that since Kim JI said that he will nuke us that it will - beyond any reason of doubt be carried out? Look at it logically. Did he say that because he is desperate to get anyone’s attention because of the deteriorating conditions of his country or because when and if he ever does develop a nuke that can fit on one of his crappy missiles he is going to commit suicide and lob one over to the US? When Clinton was president we had UN inspectors in the Country making sure he couldn’t build any more nukes than the 1 or 2 he already had. And now low and behold when Bush takes office the UN inspectors were kicked out, Kim is enriching uranium as fast as he can spin it through is centrifuges, and he’s testing nukes - Surprise, Surprise! You want to make sure we don’t get nuked AND we don’t lose 50,000 servicemen? You HELP Kim build a light water reactor for energy like we promised him in the past. In return UN inspectors are allowed back in the country to make sure no more uranium is being enriched. You let up on economic sanctions but keep sanctions on ballistic missile parts in place. You (as Kim has SUGGESTED TO BUSH) talk to North Korea directly. You give them token amounts of grain, etc. just as South Korea has been doing through their Sun Shine policy. You try to establish some sort of PEACE. This is what Kim wants. Some economic help. Assurance that we aren’t going to wipe him off the map. And recognition within the international community. A whole lot better than war. You Bushites had your chance with Iraq and according to every - and I mean EVERY fricken intelligence agency we have you have made the chances of a terrorist attack on our country even greater. Thanks!
Anyone who is ready to commit to death 50,000 US servicemen and women (and 800,000 South Korean civilians, not that you care which is obvious in your statements above) based on a SUSPICION - in my opinion even isn’t an American. How un-patriotic can you get?!?!
Still convinced that you can negotiate with and appease a madman…will we never learn?
So instead of 50,000 American lives (assuming this is valid), we’ll wind up losing 5 million. Shameful.
Why not!!! People negotiate with Bush all the time…not that the guy can make an intelligent statement but they still try to negotiate with him. Just last week NK stated they would end their nuclear program if the US would drop the sanctions against them.
“When talking about the possibility of talks, the general said the country didn’t care if the talks were bilateral or six-party, but he said the sanctions must be lifted for progress to begin. He said if all this happened, then North Korea would be ready to stand down on its nuclear program.” [quote from North Korean Gen. Ri Chan Bok]
And yes, I do think we can negotiate with a madman. Remember the Clinton years? When we NEGOTIATED with Kim JI and promised to build him light water reactors in return for Kim to halt his uranium enrichment and allow UN inspectors to inspect, install camaras, and put seals on their containment facilities at their nuclear power plants ensuring they didn’t enrich any uranium? Remember? The good ol days when we didn’t have a psycho path in the White House who had more than one working brain cell?
