McCain blames N Korea on Clinton
BushCo fluffer John McCain blames.... who else?.... Pres Clinton for N Korea's nuke test. Hmm... maybe if McCain got off his knees long enough, he'd take the time to notice this (via Jesus' General): "The US govt has announced that it will release $95m to N Korea as part of an agreement to replace the Stalinist country's own nuclear programme, which the US suspected was being misused. Under the 1994 Agreed Framework an internatl consortium is building 2 proliferation-proof nuclear reactors and providing fuel oil for N Korea while the reactors are being built. In releasing the funding, Pres George W Bush waived the Framework's requirement that N Korea allow inspectors to ensure it has not hidden away any weapons-grade plutonium from the original reactors. Bush argued that the decision was "vital to the natl security interests of the United States". If this is making your head spin, JG sums it up best: "Don't despair over N Korea's nuclear test. It's part of Our Leader's plan to build a case for bombing Iran. That's why he waived N Korea's inspection requirements back in 2002. Why would Our Leader bomb Iran to punish N Korea? For the same reason he attacked Iraq to punish Al Qaeda. It's what emperors do."
