On this weekend’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” former U.N. ambassador John Bolton argued the only remaining diplomatic solution to the nuclear threat from North Korea was through the unification of the Korean peninsula, which he argued means letting South Korea take over North Korea. “The only diplomatic option left is to end the North Korean regime by effectively having the South take it over,” Bolton said. “Sunday Morning Futures” fill-in host Trish Regan protested and said it wasn’t “really diplomatic.” “Well, that is their problem, not ours,” Bolton replied. “Because anybody who thinks more diplomacy with North Korea, more sanctions, whether against North Korea, or an effort to apply sanctions against China, is just giving North Korea more time to increase its nuclear arsenal, increase its ballistic missile capability, increase the accuracy of its guidance systems and put us, South Korea, and Japan in more jeopardy.” “We have fooled around with North Korea for 25 years, and fooling around some more is just going to make matters worse,” he added.
Agreed!! Putting off dealing with N. Korea, which is all we’ve done for over a quarter century, will only make it worse. It’s like putting off getting those impacted wisdom teeth pulled. At some point we’ll have to end this nonsense with N. Korea. And, it’d be better to have someone like Trump at the helm, who has actual executive experience and a first rate team of advisors and generals on his team, then some limp-wristed, metro-sexual, “community organizer” like Obama. A confrontation with the DPRK is inevitable. It’s not a matter of if. It’s a matter of when.
