Hillary Clinton: North Korea, Iran's pursuit of nukes 'futile'


www.politico.com

"...to send a message to whoever is making these decisions, that if you're pursuing nuclear weapons for the purpose of intimidating, of projecting your power, we're not going to let that happen," Clinton said.

"First, we're going to do everything we can to prevent you from ever getting a nuclear weapon. But your pursuit is futile, because we wi...

...

talk on North Korea, saying: “They’ve engaged in a lot of provocative action in the last months. … It’s not going to work this time.”

Strong, unprovoked words from my least favorite Obama administration official Hilldog Robin Clinton! This women in the epitome of stupid, and she demonstrates that by making this damning statement on a Sunday afternoon, around the time Ahmadinejad and Kim are playing backgammon with a couple of buddies from pilates.

Not that this message is "for them", as it is more for the American public. But i don't think Hillary Clinton, or any member of the administration, should have to go around flexing their arms and talking down already-unstable countries. We are just as bad as them if we feel the need to go around upping our arsenal and talking about how awesome we are.

If we are truly as professional, all knowing and powerful as we are made out to be, then we could approach the international community, regardless of their conduct, with a sense of quiet dignity.

But nope, this is America, lets be loud and shoot ourselves in the foot.

In terms of nuclear weapons - the US refuses to acknowledge any other nation should be able to develop nuclear weapons, its reasoning? Because they are dangerous and unstable.

Dangerous and unstable - but who starts all the aggressive wars? Well, its the US.

To say that other nations are dangerous is complete hypocrisy, the US has been the most aggressive and violent nation on earth for the last 100 years.

They have no moral platform to be dictating the ownership of nuclear weapons, and their reasons are transparent - they want to continue their monopoly of those weapons - so they can be used as political levers to subjugate other nations.

If only Americans could undo their brainwashing and see their country as it truly is - a voracious vampire, sucking the blood form the rest of the world - raping, killing and pillaging with impunity.

Tough, bullying words... we hear them a lot from politicians in matters like these.

Lets just pray that North Korea doesn't say 'Futile? Oh realllyyy...' and send a nuke over 'specially for Hilary and her buddies.

If Kim is as power crazed as he seems, he won't care about retaliation. All he'll be bothered about is his own ego.
They're almost daring him...

Incorrect... do you enjoy just making stuff up.

More utter garbage! Germany and Russia have been far by more aggressive! Especially to their neighbours. You should read some history books. Do you know why people in Eastern Europe love America and want American's on their soil? If you don't, it's because you have no idea how brutal and oppressive past regime's have been that countries from the free world liberated them from.

How is the US supposed to reduce their own nuclear stockpiles when N.Korea are increasing theirs eh? When did the US last test nukes? Not recent is the answer. How are they monopolising these weapons? China, Russia, France, Britain for a start have nuclear warheads!


If only Americans could undo their brainwashing and see their country as it truly is - a voracious vampire, sucking the blood form the rest of the world - raping, killing and pillaging with impunity.


No! You are the one that's brainwashing people.

And before you start I'm not even American. And people like you with your pathetic incorrect arguments are despicable.

Nobody wants N.Korea to have nukes. Not China, not Russia... nobody apart from the illegal regime in Iran, and even the Iranian's don't want them there.

Your reasoning is too simplistic. It reminds me of the simpleton approach of Fox news reporters. Make one silly assumption and base a whole false reasoning on that incorrect assumption.

Although I would agree that silly rhetoric by both sides can only make the problem worse. And whilst I agree with the Hillary Clinton comments, adding fuel to the fire is inappropriate.

It seems as though the US and other countries should only make comments through the UN about this matter to prevent another Korean war. Unless US officials can learn to keep comments a little bit more sensible.
