Bill Clinton Helped Ensure North Korea Got Nuclear Weapons

North Korea’s recent provocations have many Americans worried. Not only does the country have the ability to strike the U.S. mainland with a nuclear weapon, it has threatened to strike our territory of Guam.
President Trump has responded in kind, threatening to blast the communist country with “fire and fury” should we be attacked.
As North Korea continues to escalate its threats, many are asking how we got to this point. Why does a communist country have nuclear weapons when the government can’t even ensure its citizens have enough to eat?
Well, the answer lies with one man: President Bill Clinton.
And wouldn’t you know it, but hapless Jimmy Carter also had a hand in ensuring the insane Korean regime had access to nukes.
From the New York Post:
Back in 1994, President Clinton prepared to confront North Korea over CIA reports it had built nuclear warheads and its subsequent threats to engulf Japan and South Korea in “a sea of fire.”
Enter self-appointed peacemaker Carter: The ex-prez scurried off to Pyongyang and negotiated a sellout deal that gave North Korea two new reactors and $5 billion in aid in return for a promise to quit seeking nukes.
(And that my dear friends is the way they spend our tax money.)
Clinton embraced this appeasement as achieving “an end to the threat of nuclear proliferation on the Korean Peninsula” — with compliance verified by international inspectors. Carter wound up winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his dubious efforts.
But in 2002, the North Koreans ’fessed up: They’d begun violating the accord on Day
One. Four years later, Pyongyang detonated its first nuke.
Clinton tried to convince the regime to denuclearize again in 2009, while also advocating for the release of prisoners, but that was another big failure.
When it comes to the world’s strongmen, the Clintons have a habit of making things worse. We can think Bill Clinton for the new threat we face from North Korea today.
