Historic Deal Prevents North Korea From Building A Nuclear Bomb…..

By Tim Marshall

 

On this historic day it is worth reflecting on the ‘momentous’ agreement crafted by Bill Clinton which he said guaranteed North Korea would not be able to build nuclear weapons.

CLINTONOn Oct 18th 1994 the American President said “Today, after 16 months of intense and difficult negotiations with North Korea, we have completed an agreement that will make the United States, kkk 150508215003-north-korea-submarine-missile-test-medium-plus-169the Korean Peninsula, and the world safer”.

On July 14th 2015 the American President said “Today” he had achieved “ A comprehensive long term deal with Iran which will prevent it from obtaining a nuclear weapon… which makes our county and the world more secure’.

1994 Clinton “This agreement .. reduces the danger of the threat of nuclear spreading in the region. It’s a crucial step toward drawing North Korea into the global community.”

2015 Obama – “We have stopped the spread of nuclear weapons in this region because of this deal the international community will be able to verify that the Islamic Republic of Iran will not be able to achieve a nuclear weapons”.

1994 Clinton – “It does not rely on trust. Compliance will be certified by the International Atomic Energy Agency”.

2015 Obama – “This deal is not built on trust it is built on verification. Inspectors will have24/7 access to Iran’s key nuclear facilities”

1994 Clinton –“The United States and North Korea have also agreed to ease trade restrictions and to move toward establishing liaison offices in each other’s capitals. These offices will ease North Korea’s isolation.

IRAN2015 Obama – “Iran will receive relief from sanctions we put in place because of Iran’s nuclear programme…Obama

On April 23rd 2003 North Korea announced it had nuclear weapons.

The above is not to say that the Iran deal will not work. But is a reminder that just because an American President promises that a country will not build a nuclear weapon, it does not mean the country will not build nuclear weapons.

    I firmly believe that President Obama is naive if he believes Iran will adhere to the agreement.
    He (Obama) and his side-kick John Kerry will go down in history as the two Americans who enabled Iran to acquire nuclear capability. That’s why Obama’s speech this morning sounded hollow and has failed to impress or reassure US allies in the Middle East.

    Obama made a classic Orwellian type of “war is peace” speech, basically what he said to the Iranians is ” if you like your nuclear bomb you can keep it “

    Tim listening to the speeches in Vienna by the foreign ministers of the P5 + 1, I am reminded of what Abba Eban said:
    ” A consensus means that everyone agrees to say collectively what no one believes individually.”

    Neville Chamberlain also believed he had struck a deal in 1938.

    Over the next few years millions paid the price for his folly and there was tremendous global upheavel in the wake of the World War that came on the heels of the ill-fated Munich accords.

    The Russians also stirred the pot with the Molotov/Ribbentrop pact.

    Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Will 2015 be consudered the twenty-first century’s 1938?
