ELDER PATRIOT – The MSM is doing its darnedest to suggest President Trump is the cause of the North Korean nuclear threat that we face today. Only an ignorant buffoon would buy this.
North Korea is a pimple on the world’s ass that has foreign policy relevance only because Bill Clinton played a key role in North Korea’s nuclear development by allowing the late Kim Jong-Il (father of the miscreant currently heading this Marxist regime) to continue his nuclear weapons program.
In 1994, President Clinton gave the go ahead to begin replacing North Korea’s domestically built nuclear reactors with light water reactors.
Those light water reactors had the capability of producing weapons-grade plutonium a necessity for building enhanced nuclear weapons and today that has come back to bite the U.S. in the ass.
But, this isn’t all on Clinton. In 2003, for all his bluster about protecting America and naming North Korea a terrorist nation – along with Iran, George W Bush gave the okay for the delivery of equipment and services to build two nuclear power stations at Kumho, on North Korea’s east coast.
Taken by itself this perhaps this could be dismissed as a foreign policy miscalculation. Subsequent revelations prove that this was no mistake.
According to a report by the Free Thought Project:
“American taxpayers then financed the construction of these nuclear reactors — to the tune of $95 million — which were used to build weapons to threaten their very lives. Despite Korea being caught building the nukes with US taxpayer funds, Bush upped his ante in 2003 and sent even more money to the dictatorship.
“Although this program was supposedly halted years later, the CIA stepped in to help North Korea continue making nukes.
“In 2004, Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan — CIA asset and international arms smuggler — and the father of Pakistan’s atom bomb program, admitted sharing nuclear technology via a worldwide smuggling network that included facilities in Malaysia which manufactured key parts for centrifuges.”
Khan’s involvement is revealing because we are now seeing the same script playing out with Iran – that other terrorist nation – including the transfer of $150 billion to the rogue Islamic state, proving this is part of a wider strategy to create a chaotic international security that Donald Trump warned us about during an appearance on Meet the Press on October 24, 1999:
Russert: Would you as president be prepared to launch a pre-emptive strike against North Korea.
Trump: In three or four years these people (N Korea) are going to have nuclear weapons and they’re going to have them pointed all over the world and specifically at the United States and wouldn’t we be better off solving this problem – the biggest problem, the biggest problem this world has is nuclear proliferation – and we have a country out there in North Korea that is sort of wacko, that is not a bunch of dummies, and they are going out and they are developing nuclear weapons. And they’re not doing because they’re having fun doing it they’re doing it for a reason. And, wouldn’t it be good to negotiate something and if that negotiation doesn’t work you’d better solve the problem now – you know it and every politician knows it and nobody wants to talk about it.
That was four years before Bush allowed Don Rumsfeld to negotiate the sale of light water reactors to the North Koreans. How much better off would the world be today if Trump had been our president back then.
The MSM is clumsily trying to blame both of these threats on President Trump as though he had anything to do with selling the necessary technologies to either nation while he was busy building hotels.
Trump is simply doing his best to deal with the mess left by Clinton, Bush and Obama who, for all their phony campaign declarations against each other, have proven to be three peas in a pod.
