If Iraq Had North Korea’s Capabilities…..

would we have seen this kind of reaction out of the Bush administration? Couple this with my previous post about the administration avoiding damning evidence contrary to their theories about WMDs in Iraq, and what do you get?

Certainly not an administration that actually cares about real threats, but instead an administration that is avoiding putting their money where their mouths are. The Bush Doctrine is not about pre-emption, but about prevention. North Korea is not being prevented from obtaining the nukes they so desire. Why?

Very simple. A war with North Korea is not politically viable for Bush right now. Why not? Because he doesn’t need to be re-elected again. Because we’re in the middle of an election year, and he wants to make sure his Republicans win in November with a “quiet” international front.

meanwhile, Korea keeps building those nukes and tests missiles that can reach the United States. Has Iraq ever reached that point?
