Bush Opposes Nukes for Allies
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush said Monday he would oppose helping Japan, South Korea and Taiwan develop nuclear weapons to guard against any threat from a nuclear-armed North Korea.

"I think the less nuclear armament in the Far East, the better off the world will be," the president said in an interview.

Bush said the United States should work closely with its allies in Asia on a missile defense system. "Our missile defense systems are getting better and better because of the money that we have been spending over the past five years," he said.

The president said the U.S. has convinced its partners in talks with North Korea that Pyongyang should not have nuclear arms. "The problem is, it's a little frustrating for people; diplomacy is a little frustrating for people because things don't happen overnight.

2. Trillions on a system that doesn't work. I'm sure they'll buy that one.

3. Hey who says "Star Wars" won't work? I think several gulls were killed
when a radar antenna began to rotate during one test fire.

4. Only because the jobs of the world are going over there...
And when politicians and executives try to move over there after the US is destroyed, they will want a nice life.

:tinfoilhat: obviously but when it comes to politicians, so few are trustworthy that ridiculous inferences are all that's left. :(

And it is ridiculous because Bush gave India nukes (or did I misread that article on DU?)
