Democratic Clinton Legacy
This is in response to the posts I am already seeing laying blame on Bush and co. about the Korea situation. My point? Look into the mirror and the past before pointing fingers here.
The Clinton appeasement program for North Korea included hundreds of millions of dollars in aid, food, oil and even a nuclear reactor. However, the agreement was flawed and lacked even the most informal means of verification.
In return, Kim elected to starve his people while using the American aid to build uranium bombs. The lowest estimate is that Kim starved to death over 1 million of his own people, even with the U.S. aid program.
THIS is what happens when the Democrats are in charge of foreign policy. The Bush administration may have made some mistakes, but they sure as hell didn't hand over a nuclear reactor to North Korea.
Think about that when deciding who should be in charge of OUR national security.
Hyscience and Freedom's Zone is also talking about this. So is Iowa Voice in a piece called "Democrats need to make up their minds" and "Church and State".
Once again Hot Air is all over this.

[UPDATE] 10/16/06- Freedom Eden understands the North Korea issue can be directly related to Clinton's appeasement policy.
