Because China backs NK. It's been said here many times how it is strongly suspected NK is China's cats-paw for the upcoming Taiwanese conflict.
You think we're ready to go toe-to-toe with China? With our Navy and Army castrated by years of post-Cold War shortsightedness?
Iraq stood mostly alone, the mistake was in understanding how closely allied the UN was with the reigning regime. Had there been no Oil for Food
program, smart money is that the UN would not have voted against the invasion.
Besides, it doesn't really matter. If we'd went after NK, the Media would be claiming there were no nukes there. They'd be saying "sure, Kim
wanted nukes, and his scientists promised them, but they were funneling off the money and faking results"...the same hogwash many keep spouting about
Then, the partisan obstructionists would be screaming about how Bush failed and how come he didn't invade Iraq because it's known he's a threat and
claims to have WMD's....
Bush and the Republicans are in a no-win situation. Partisanistas will not allow any decision made by the current administration to be "the right
one". Invade, get attacked. Don't invade, get attacked. Invade one threat, get attacked for the "wrong" one. Invade both, get accused of
Don't worry though, Canada or Mexico or France will send troops and the partisanistas can praise their efforts.
