Thank you , President Clinton!!!

Another part of the Clinton legacy (midwifed by Jimmy Carter, as Hugh Hewitt puts it) gives birth after a 12 year labor of appeasement talks. How many more lines in the sand can we afford to draw before the nuke-rattling becomes imminent?

It won't be a line in the sand. After you set off a nuke the sand turns to glass. I don't know if you can draw a line in the glass.

Drawing a line in broken glass will bloody your finger.

It should hav been done when it was still sand.

Thanks, Slick Willie. Another trophy to your legacy.

This is the kind of evil we're supposed to "tolerate" in the world (Hat tip: Flopping Aces):

THE North Korean refugee had one request for her captors before the young Chinese soldiers led her back across the steel-girdered bridge on the Yalu River that divides two “socialist allies”.

“She asked for a comb and some water because she said that if she was going to die she could not face going to heaven looking as dirty and dishevelled as this,” recounted a relative of one soldier who was there.

What happened next is testimony to the rising disgust in Chinese military ranks as Beijing posts more troops to the border amid a crisis with North Korea over its regime’s plan to stage a nuclear test.

The soldiers, who later told family members of the incident, marched the woman, who was about 30, to the mid-point of the bridge. North Korean guards were waiting. They signed papers for receipt of the woman, who kept her dignity until that moment. Then, in front of the Chinese troops, one seized her and another speared her hand — the soft part between thumb and forefinger — with the point of a sharpened steel cable, which he twisted into a leash.

“She screamed just like a pig when we kill it at home in the village,” the soldier later told his relative. “Then they dragged her away.”

I know the title of this is a slam on Clinton, but the real question becomes, "What do we do now?"

I couldn't help but laugh when I heard the NK ambassador at the UN said we should all "congratulate" them rather than pass another useless resolution on NK.

Um...is there another kind of UN resolution I'm unaware of, other than "useless"?

We should also thank the United Nations.

I’ll stand with Israel too as long this is the plan for the war on terror. Those that say they have interpreted Genesis, any part of Genesis, including 12:3, except me of course, are crazy.

All I see is Kim Mentally Il selling some nuclear weaponry to ol' "Amawanamyjihad" and then the fun will really begin!

I've heard many people say over the years that Clinton should be tried for treason for his involvment with China,and his stupidy in helping North Korea get closer to their nuclear weapon. But of course the democrats are now saying this is bush's fault

Well everyone is now saying that North Korea didn't even test a nuclear weapon but a weapon with less impact on the rector scale.

Yup. Nuke-rattling. Whether they had or hadn't, we're still in a pickled-predicament.

I find this telling:

"The United States does not need a multi-billion-dollar national missile defense against the possibility of a nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missile."
- "would-be House Speaker" Nancy Pelosi, April 12, 2003

I bet she'd rather shift the focus back on Foley's folly, anyway.

Again...which way are we voting in November?

Not for the Democrats? LOL.

Of course Nancy Pelosi is upset that another story bumped hers off. It happened exactly the same way with President Clinton EXCEPT he would usually start something somewhere else, just to get off the first-twenty pages.

No, Clinton certainly did us no favors, Wordsmith. My word, this upcoming election is scary! Should the libs win, (borrowing a phrase from Rush) we will have a congress from hell!

I think I'm more worried about that than Kim Jong Il!
