NK nukes is one of the many real consequences of the Bush admin and Iraq
Edited on Mon Oct-09-06 07:58 AM by Bleachers7
North Korea having nukes and exploding them is going to be one of the many long term consequences of the actions of the Bush administration. I was born in the mid 70's. I remember when Reagan, Bush, and Clinton would do something, it would have a consequence. Bush goes out there like a cowboy not thinking out two and three steps into the future.

Bush sends 15,000 troops to Afghanistan and 150,000 to Iraq. Consequence: No troops to go after Osama directly, so he is still on the loose. Also Afghanistan is slipping back to the Taliban.
Osama does 9/11. Bush bombs Iraq after warnings about no weapons or ties to terrorism. Consequence: Iraq has gone to hell. The Middle East has destabilized. Iran is too powerful.
Bush threatens Iran. Consequence: Iran fires up Hezzbollah and they fight it out with Israel for a month.
Bush initiates a coup against Chavez. Consequence: Chavez goes into a defensive position, loads up with weapons, and spreads his revolution to the continent.
Bush invades Iraq with 150,000 troops when 500,000 are required. Consequence: Where do you begin here? Insurgency, expansion of terrorism, 100+ dead Iraqi's a day, Abu Ghraib, military at the breaking point because of lack of troops, loss of some of the most brilliant people in the military to war and poor treatment, and much much more.

So now North Korea explodes a bomb. That is a consequence as well. It is a consequence of not having the maturity to engage them. It is a consequence of isolating them when their neighbors didn't want to. It is a consequence of a weakened America (and american military) due to the bogus Iraq war. It is a consequence of using the bogus term "Axis of Evil." It is a consequence of pulling 12,000 troops out of South Korea. And many people say it is a consequence of the "preemptive war" idea.

I feel like I need to explain something real slow so Bush and all of the Republicans can understand it. Bush loves to say that history will judge. It will, but that's a cop out. If I walk out of my house and punch someone in the face, I will be punished now. I would have to face the consequences which would be possible jail, fines, and community service. History will remember me as a decent guy who once punched someone in the face. But the reality of my actions will have caused harm to the victim, myself, my community, and the people close to us.
