    Saddam said he had no WMD. Yet Bush started war on Iraq.

    N. Korea had its third nuke test. Kim Chun Um threatens to nuke US and its allies. He gets a "reach out" from US.
    Kerry's been wanting to "reach out" For decades. What's the over/under time frame for him to blame the U.S. for RNK's problems? It's not like it's his money he'll be giving away.

    Bull****. Kerry's not offering them anything including money or aid like previous administrations. He's just saying the door's open to talk but they HAVE TO give up the race for nuclear capabilities with no games. They have to be serious or there will be no talks.

    Nonsense. He kept up the appearance of a WMD program, though shenanigans with inspectors, to keep away the Iranian regime. This is common knowledge.

    That's correct.

    A smart foreign policy always leaves the door open for cooperation on common interests. Doing so is not capitulation. Prime Minister Thatcher and President Reagan kept the proverbial door open to the USSR and seized the moment for diplomacy when the opportunity had arisen. Although I doubt North Korea will suddenly take a more accommodating path--and I strongly advocate the U.S. and its allies refraining from providing North Korea with any kind of assistance until it makes measurable progress in improving its conduct--the U.S. should always be ready to respond if it does.

    You need common sense. US accused Saddam having WMD. If he admitted, U.N. need not to sent team to inspect. Only he denied it, then there was inspection.

    Saddam even let the inspector to search his palace to prove there was no WMD.

    What did he let UN team search the sites they wanted to? To prove there was no WMD, or there was?

    Saddam never gave full access and played games until the bitter end. Read the final report from inspectors to the UN. He later admitted to having done so in order to make Iran believe he had WMDs and a program.

    Making up BS to defend Saddam is absurd.

    I have a friend that is teaching English in South Korea that says much of the reason why this is happening is that NK citizens do not believe the current Kim is a God like the last two and there is a lot more unrest nowadays within North Korea than there used to be. Saddam and Iraqi was taken down for logistical and economical reasons. There is no economical benefit in taking down NK. It's like a bunch of people are coming together to help out an alcoholic right now, no one benefits, just the alcoholic, that and they don't have to listen to his rants anymore.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
