Hey, thanks George
U.S. and South Korean intelligence detected a seismic event at a suspected nuclear test site in North Korea, the White House said Monday, a few hours after North Korea claimed it had conducted an underground nuclear test.Lest we forget, he tossed a bunch of money at the third leg of the "Axis of Evil" and said, "Hey, don't worry about it. We don't need to know what you're doing with it."
The US Government has announced that it will release $95m to North Korea as part of an agreement to replace the Stalinist country's own nuclear programme, which the US suspected was being misused.And he did that roughly three months after saying they were part of the "Axis."
Under the 1994 Agreed Framework an international consortium is building two proliferation-proof nuclear reactors and providing fuel oil for North Korea while the reactors are being built.
In releasing the funding, President George W Bush waived the Framework's requirement that North Korea allow inspectors to ensure it has not hidden away any weapons-grade plutonium from the original reactors.
President Bush argued that the decision was "vital to the national security interests of the United States".
Good thinking, dumbass.
Update: Unfortunately, I might have been spared some embarrassment if I'd only read the General, who posted this same quote earlier today and assures me this is all part of the grand plan.
