Bush: "Why should I care about North Korea?"
Why should I care about North Korea?In State of Denial, Bob Woodward recounts a conversation between then-Gov. George W. Bush and then-Saudi ambassador to the U.S. Prince Bandar, in which Bush wonders why he should care about North Korea. I get these briefings on all parts of the world, Bush said, and everybody is talking to me about North Korea.

3. He probably had never heard of N. Korea then, and we all know
he doesn't know where it is now. But, he'll never forget Poland...

9. Remember that Bush never went out of the country when he
was Governor of Texas, he is as ignorant as anyone could be.

5. Incurious George.
Doesn't see the point in learning anything new. Wants to rule according to the "Great Man" (!) theory of leadership.

If we get out of this alive, I only hope the country will have learned that the weighty matters of the Oval Office require a wise and intellectually engaged individual.

6. you should care because it's going to take A LOT more bribery
to get them to give up their nukes now that they have them, than it would have cost us to get them to stop working on them before they succeeded.
That's just for starters.
Then there are all the unpredictable things that may happen as other countries in the region re-evaluate their own position on nuclear weapons. That could get a whole lot worse, the potential costs there range all the way up to accidental firing of missiles brings on the end of the world.

Any lurkers? This was to be the savior of our nation. I guess he has done that, hasn't he?
