Nucrear admissions

North Korea admits they have nukes. All I have to say to that is this: No Sh!t, Sherlock. We've known you were talking out of both sides of your mouth on the nuclear issue for years.

The Kim government says that the weapons are for "self-defense to cope with the Bush administration's ever more undisguised policy to isolate and stifle the (North)" I call B.S. I'm not going to say what I think they're for, but if you've seen Team America, you can guess what I think. Preliminary intelligence reports further indicate that the sharks Kim keeps in the movie may actually be more dangerous than the nukes. FoxNews is reporting that NK may not even be able to launch the missiles.

As usual, Captain Ed is all over the story. He makes a crucial point:
"All this proves is the folly of appeasement, an option unfortunately forced on the Clintons by their friend Jimmy Carter, who sailed into the North Korean negotiations uninvited and dropped this Munich descendant onto the table. Tyrants do not willingly disarm; they need all the weapons which they can get in order to protect themselves from the people around them, including (and especially) their own subjects. To believe otherwise is folly, and as shown in North Korea, catastrophically deadly folly."
I thought we stopped trying appeasement in 1939. Sixty-five years later, it once again becomes clear that you CANNOT negotiate with terrorists. Reagan knew it, that's why the hostages came home. W knows it, that's why we've chased down the al-Qaeda and took out Saddam. Those who do not remember the past are evidently doomed to endanger the rest of us by repeating it.
