Clinton Brags About Dismantling North Korea’s Nukes, ONE PROBLEM

Nuclear threat from North Korea is nothing new, however, their ability to do so is.

North Korea signed an agreement many years ago stating that, in exchange for money, they would no longer attempt nuclear warfare and would begin the slow dismantling of their weaponry surrounding nuclear reactors.

America paid 4 billion in order to make this happen and employed diplomacy to do so.

The genius behind the diplomacy was none other than Bill Clinton and the Clinton administration, and boy were they patting themselves on the back prematurely when talking to The New York Times about the success of the agreement…

Ouch…

Via IJR:

Bill Clinton had just gotten North Korea to sign a “promise” to never develop nuclear weapons again. According to The New York Times, writing in 1994:

President Clinton approved a plan today to arrange more than $4 billion in energy aid to North Korea during the next decade in return for a commitment from the country’s hard-line Communist leadership to freeze and gradually dismantle its nuclear weapons development program.

“This agreement will help achieve a longstanding and vital American objective — an end to the threat of nuclear proliferation on the Korean Peninsula,” Mr. Clinton said this afternoon after his top foreign policy advisers described the details of an enormously complex agreement struck with North Korea late Monday.

The main accomplishment of the agreement is that it commits North Korea to never resuming operations of its five-megawatt nuclear reactor — a source of fuel for its nuclear weapons project — and never to finish construction of two larger reactors, rated at 50 and 200 megawatts, which potentially could produce fuel for hundreds of additional weapons. In time, North Korea is also committed to dismantling the most crucial installation in its nuclear complex: a reprocessing plant that can convert spent nuclear fuel into weapons-grade plutonium.

Fast forward 23 years and North Korea has used that money to continue building Nuclear weapons that now pose a serious threat to the American homeland.

So much for diplomacy.
