I Stand By What I Meant To Say
I just read this morning that North Korea, has denied
admitting that they had admitted to having a nuclear program. Sounds like
CLINTON is running that spin; I can hear him now;
" Well it all depends on what the word admits means. Did we admit admitting
something or did we just say we admitted something?. In which case we didn't
admit anything, only said we said something>"
It is my suggestion that we take a page out of the Israeli play book and take out
those reactors now. THEN, and ONLY THEN we can talk to them. What I still find
most amazing of all is that people in this country seem to think that these
people are of little or no threat. I cannot imagine why do people living in N.
Korea need nuke power. They are starving peasants, (through no fault of their
own), living under a ruthless dictator. Many of them live in huts made of wood
and cowdung for goodness sakes.
With all the aid; Financial/Food/Technological, one would think they'd be doing

people are basically good is worthless. People are flawed. End of story. But I
As of this writing I am sure that the Bush administration is having others such
as China and Japan seeking a more diplomatic solution to this problem. Talk is
cheap, as the N. Koreans have already demonstrated. Actions speak louder than
words. So far they have spoken very loud by exiting the Non Proliferation
treaty, (to which they weren't adhering to), violating the agreement brokered by
the Clinton administration, and pretty much rattling a saber, all in the effort
to continue to get aid. If they were a sports team, I would say they were "trash
It is my opinion, and not a very popular one, that the nations of the world let
these folks starve, and die on the vine. Perhaps, somewhere in North Korea,
there is one person, with enough guts to realize that Kim Jung II is nothing
more than a thug, and begin an organized resistance. Perhaps these efforts can
even be backed by a form of covert opts from the United States. Better yet, how
about from the SOUTH Koreans? Both counties, North and South Korea, want
reunification, why not under a more democratic form of government? I believe
that it is up to the people there to realize that;
"Freedom is not free, it comes with a price."
Are there any left in this world, besides the USA, that realize this?
