In 1993, North Korea fired a Rodong medium-range ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan. After that, the world learned that the country might be developing nuclear weapons.

 
 

Then-U.S. President Bill Clinton drew up a plan to strike North Korea's nuclear and related facilities. During a summit with Japanese Prime Minister Morihiro Hosokawa, Clinton secretly asked for Tokyo's cooperation.

 

Japan refused a U.S. request to help with minesweeping operations, citing constitutional restrictions. Japan also disappointed the U.S. by saying there were limits to opening up commercial ports and airports to the U.S.

Did anyone have money riding on how long it would take for the right to start blaming their nk failures on Clinton?

Seeing as South Korea and North Korea are technically still at war and the US has thousands of troops stationed in South Korea, I'm going to venture a guess that every President since the end of the Korean War has drawn up some type of plan to attack North Korea.

Not sure why a contingency plan would be surprising.

Doubt it. There'd be no one to bet against.

You took the keystrokes right out of my post. :D It's quite sad how the Trumpettes keep trying to find false equivalencies and come up making their case for defending Trump even weaker.

I lost cause I thought for sure they would blame Obama before Clinton.

It really doesn't matter who gets the blame as long as it's not Trump.

Why would they want to censor this?

 

Could you please wait three minutes before you answer though? The popcorn won't be ready until then. :)

Truth be told. I cannot stand Trump. I did view his election as a repudiation of CNN, the New York Times and all others who collectively worked to elect Hillary. The only thing I want out of Trump is Justices like Clarence Thomas and Sam Alieto. Also, lower court justices to mitigate the Obama radicals who invent new laws. Other than that, I expect little out of Trump.

Maybe Trump could borrow them.

LOL, this ^^


The time has come for a centrist political party. Rational Americans are not comfortable with extreme views to the left or to the right, and our current parties have no intentions of ever abandoning their ever increasing distance from sane, reasonable thinking.

No one ought to be crediting or blaming Clinton...or Bush, or Obama or Trump for planning NK contingencies.   Cannot tell you how many times "the wheel has been reinvented" when it comes to contingencies in that part of the theater.  The unclassified OPLAN 5027 gets updated, dusted off, tweaked and modeled for at least 3 annual wargames/exercises in that part of the world.  There is one going on right now.

"Yet at the same time, Clinton set up a diplomatic back-channel to end the crisis peacefully. The vehicle for this channel was former President Jimmy Carter, who in June 1994 was sent to Pyongyang to talk with Kim Il Sung, then the leader of North Korea. Carter’s trip was widely portrayed at the time as a private venture, unapproved by President Clinton. However, a new book about the ’94 North Korean crisis, Going Critical, written by three former officials who played key roles in the events’ unfolding, reveals that Clinton recruited Carter to go.

 

...Vice President Al Gore favored the trip, seeing no other way out of the crisis. Clinton sided with Gore. As Clinton saw it, Kim Il Sung had painted himself into a corner and needed an escape hatch–a clear path to back away from the brink without losing face, without appearing to buckle under pressure from the U.S. government. Carter might offer that hatch.

 

Both sides in this internal debate turned out to be right. Kim agreed to back down."

True, according to Trump's bunch he is never to blame for anything.
