We've spent the last decade trying to undo the horrors we unleashed in our quest to thwart Saddam's mythical quest for a nuclear bomb.
Even our own intelligence agencies minimized talk of their nuclear-weapon development. Now even less so thanks to the deal with the West.
Meanwhile, backward North Korea has been hard at work improving its nuclear-bomb capability.
Friday morning brings news of another major advancement in Pyongyang's nuclear-bomb development.
(I'm curious why we make such a big deal about the still-lacking ability for intercontinental missiles. Although it would be difficult with satellite imagery and other forms of monitoring, just one nondescript third-country freighter setting up off our coast would pretty much do it.)
We've unleashed a host of nightmares in the Middle East, while essentially ignoring North Korea.
If sanctions are our only weapon for North Korea, how come the same couldn't have been said for Iraq, Libya and so on?
It's all about doing the bidding of Big Oil.
