Another Obamaesque Foreign Policy Success March 30, 2013

It’s not enough that he’s allowed North Korea to acquire nuclear arms and delivery mechanisms, but he’s apparently brought us to the brink of nuclear war:

North Korea Official Website Promises “Merciless Nuclear Attacks” on US

Smart diplomacy. I do not think it means what you think it means.

But not to worry, sez the Administration:

North Korea is unlikely to carry out its bellicose threats to unleash a nuclear attack on the US and South Korea unless the Kim dynasty’s control of the communist regime is threatened, the White House intelligence chief said on Tuesday.

Unless, of course, you should worry:

But James Clapper, the US director of national intelligence, cautioned that Pyongyang remains an unpredictable and serious threat because it is difficult to gauge at what point North Korea’s leadership would feel its existence to be in jeopardy.

Let me sum up:

  1. You allowed North Korea to develop and test nuclear weapons.
  2. Now you’re trying to guess when they might use them. Which could be any time, really. So thanks for that.

See, in grown-up foreign policy land, you try to avoid worrying about Step 2 by preventing Step 1. When you’re at Step 2, your foreign policy has already failed.

And you have failed the American people.
