John Bolton Unplugged On North Korea

4

Boy, does this speak volumes…

The best thing you can say about this deal is that it’s so incomplete, and that the North Koreans may yet save us from ourselves by overreaching. They violated the 1994 agreed framework because they want to have it both ways. They want to keep the nuclear program and get these economic benefits. So I’m hoping the North Koreans will come to our rescue and show they’re not really serious here about denuclearizaion, because I don’t think they are.

Ha! Yeah John, because nuclear war is a much better option. Wow…

I know, I know…he didn’t say that specifically, but this new deal demands that Nortk Korea shuts down all their reactors in exchange for fuel. Here are the details…

North Korea has committed to shut down and seal all operations at the primary nuclear facilities it has used to produce weapons-grade plutonium within the next 60 days and has agreed to allow international inspectors to verify and monitor this process. In addition to those immediate actions, North Korea has also committed to disclose all its nuclear programs and disable its existing nuclear facilities as an initial step toward abandoning all of those programmes and facilities under international supervision.

And, as Reason.com so eloquently points out…

Well, at least a man who appears to think that a desire for negotiation over war is one of America’s regrettable weaknesses that it needs to be saved from is no longer a leading diplomat.

Mr. Bolton…we hardly knew ye…
