I think Obama is the worst foreign policy president in the history of our country. This pretty much confirms it.
North Korea is a dangerous nation – there’s no doubt about it. They routinely refuse to listen to the UN, they’ve shut out nearly the entire world, and they execute anyone from civilians to high ranking political officers just for speaking out against their leader.
Truly, they are a nation that should be released from their torture by their murderous dictator Kim Jong Un.
However, Obama, in his infinite wisdom, decided to try and strike a deal with them. Take a wild guess when it happened.
The Obama administration decided to drop its requirement that North Korea reduce its nuclear program in order to restart peace talks, a report posted by the Wall Street Journal Sunday revealed.
The requirement, which states that North Korea must dismantle part of its nuclear stash before peace talks begin again in earnest, was rejected by Kim Jong-un’s regime. Less than a week later, on Jan. 6, the North Korea regime tested what it said was a hydrogen bomb.
According to federal officials, the Obama administration had agreed to drop the long-standing requirement for the North Koreans to come back to peace talks, instead saying the rogue country’s program could just be part of discussions.
International Business Times added,
North Korea began 2016 on a belligerent footing, even considering the unpredictable pariah state’s history. In addition to the January nuclear test, North Korea launched a rocket earlier this month, resulting in swift pushback from Japan and South Korea, which closed a joint industrial park that provided North Korea with valuable hard currency.
The most recent offer to North Korea was one of several overtures extended by the Obama administration, insiders told the Journal, which happened at the same time the administration was working on an ultimately successful diplomatic outreach to Iran. North Korea first tested a nuclear weapon in 2006, and its nuclear capabilities were confirmed in 2009. North and South Korea have technically been at war ever since the “hot” phase of the Korean War ended in 1953, but the North’s recent nuclear developments have increased the urgency to ultimately resolve the dispute diplomatically.
In addition to its unsanctioned nuclear activity, the North Korean regime is also alleged to operate a system of concentration camps where political prisoners are worked and starved to death. The U.N. released a 2014 report that suggested the regime’s security chiefs and leader Kim Jong Un should be prosecuted for crimes against humanity.
And look! They just tested a nuke anyway as a way to say, “F*** you, we’re going to do what we want. Thanks for loosening those constraints! Now die.” So what’s the takeaway here? Obama thought that opening up diplomatic ties with a nation (much like he did with Iran) that wants the entirety of the U.S. dead, would be a good idea. What a moron. 2017 cannot get here soon enough.
