    Doesn't matter what I think. What matters is that Trump will listen to his advisors and do what they think is best for the situation, as it should be.

    The two faces of Rumsfeld
    2000: director of a company which wins $200m contract to sell nuclear reactors to North Korea
    2002: declares North Korea a terrorist state, part of the axis of evil and a target for regime change
    The two faces of Rumsfeld

    As per usual, it's all bipartisan.

    I think he shouldn't do anything for now. Just keep an eye on North Korea but nothing more.
    Honestly I think Kim Jong Un doesn't want to attack any country: he just wanna act like a "tough guy" ;)

    He was the CEO of a bio pharmaceutical company on 2000. Nothing like spreading lies.

    Or at least check your sources.

    I was wrong. I apologize to Fenton, but let's look at who pushed the deal to begin with, shall we. Full disclosure, you know. Bill Clinton approved those nuclear power plants.

    Good afternoon. I am pleased that the United States and North Korea yesterday reached agreement on the text of a framework document on North Korea's nuclear program. This agreement will help to achieve a longstanding and vital American objective: an end to the threat of nuclear proliferation on the Korean Peninsula.

    This agreement is good for the United States, good for our allies, and good for the safety of the entire world. It reduces the danger of the threat of nuclear spreading in the region. It's a crucial step toward drawing North Korea into the global community.

    I want to begin by thanking Secretary Christopher and our chief negotiator, Ambassador at Large Bob Gallucci, for seeing these negotiations through. I asked Bob if he'd had any sleep, since he's going to answer all your technical questions about this agreement, and he said that he had had some sleep. So be somewhat gentle with him. After meeting with my chief national security advisers, and at their unanimous recommendation, I am instructing Ambassador Gallucci to return to Geneva on Friday for the purpose of signing an agreement...

    .........


    • 1993: In March, North Korea threatens to withdraw from the NPT. Facing heavy domestic pressure from Republicans who oppose negotiations with North Korea, President Bill Clinton appoints Robert Gallucci to start a new round of negotiations. After 89 days, North Korea announces it has suspended its withdrawal. (The NPT requires three months notice before a country can withdraw.)
    • In December, IAEA Director-General Blix announces that the agency can no longer provide "any meaningful assurances" that North Korea is not producing nuclear weapons.
    • 12 October 1994: the United States and North Korea signed the "Agreed Framework": North Korea agreed to freeze its plutonium production program in exchange for fuel oil, economic cooperation, and the construction of two modern light-water nuclear power plants. Eventually, North Korea's existing nuclear facilities were to be dismantled, and the spent reactor fuel taken out of the country.
