A little history may be in order; Korea has for many generations been a vassal state of China. Korean kings paid large amounts of tribute to the Chinese imperial court,and at various times China maintained a significant military presence in Korea. China has been Korea's "big brother" for a very long time.

The present partition of Korea into two states, North and South, is completely artificial. It was created at the end of WWII and I suspect the black hands of the Dulles brothers were deeply involved. The same thing happened in Vietnam by the way and we can see the end result of that exercise. Kim the Elder set out to unify the country with his attack on the South in 1950, but the US got in the way with the resulting stalemate and the present volatile situation.

Bill Clinton had the North Korean situation well on the way toward a solution. The North agreed to dismantle it's nuclear weapons program if the US would aid in supplying heavy fuel oil for its power generators and help with the design and development of some light water power reactors. The North actually started to dismantle it's plutonium reactor under this agreement. Then along came Georgie Boy and the whole thing came crashing down on his inflated ego.

If this thing comes crashing down into a steaming pile of cow poo with hundreds of thousands perhaps millions of deaths then the name of George W. Bush must be added to that esteemed list of history's mass murderers.

I do not feel obligated to believe that the same God who endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use. (Galileo Galilei)
