Yes, and Greenpeace got a shiny new ship from the French Navy as payment for the sinking of Rainbow Warrior [whatever the number was]. Cost France about $30M.

The French have a keen sense of tradition and continuity.

To each according to one's needs. I do not believe that anyone is more responsible at handling Nukes than any other.
Let it be!

Mi$ter Right.

Oh boy,here Bush goes again It's his fault we are even at this point!



WASHINGTON — Any North Korean attack on South Korea or Japan will be considered an attack on the United States, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton warned Monday.

<snip>

"North Korea may not have got what they wanted," the official said.
However, said it detected a 4.2-magnitude tremor at 10:35 p.m. EDT, which could mean the device was potentially deadlier than initially believed. Australia also said there was seismic confirmation that North Korea conducted a nuclear test.

But some in Russia suggested the test was a consequence of U.S. policy.

<snip>

Iranian state radio blamed North Korea's reported test on U.S. pressure, saying the test "was a reaction to America's threats and humiliation."

The Associated Press contributed to this report

Which planet do you live on again?

In all seriousness you would have no problem with Ahmadinejad having a full arsenal of nukes?

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

It was amazing how, with all of his built up credibility in world politics that he was able to just ask and it was done. That is what we have needed in a leader.

Just imagine if he had gone of half cocked in some other part of the world without the worlds approval or help, on a half baked mission filled with half truths and no plans. Why he may not have been taken seriously when he put his foot down this time when it really, REALLY mattered.

You just gotta hope that the crack Homeland Security Department, with Heck of a Job Chertoff manages to check the right 3% of container’s on ships that come from the Pacific Rim over the next year or so. It would be a shame if Homeland Security was still searching 80 year old women at airports at that time.
Who gave NK the help and technology in 1994 so they could build nuclear sites, for peaceful reasons of course?
