Hillary Plays the Part of Neville Chamberlain

Hillary Clinton seems to be really searching for herself these days. On the topic of North Korea, she seems to want to play the role of Neville Chamberlain. She recently co-authored an Op-Ed piece in the Washington Post with an equally bad Senator, Carl Levin from Michigan. I grew up in Michigan so I know how terrible a senator that Levin has been, but that is another post for another time. In their join effort in the Washington Post, the two senators make the case for appeasement of North Korea through the suggested offer of yet another aid package to North Korea.

The cost to North Korea for this aid package? Simply return to the bargaining table and resume the 6-nation talks about the North Korean nuclear program. Just my opinion but that does not seem like a fair bargain since the last time North Korea got a aid package from the United States and others they went on to actually building the nuclear weapons that got us to this point. Surely, you remember that aid package that Bill Clinton gave them in 1994?

Since Hillary prides herself on being, the most hands-on First Lady in the history of this country one can only guess her involvement with President Clinton’s decision to offer the carrot to the North Korea. With her latest suggestion it seems that she wishes to advance her ideas on the back of her husband, but don’t feel bad for Bill she even made the claim that her husband’s policy of giving the North Koreans whatever they wanted was more successful then anything President Bush has tried to date. Too bad that a 1999 congressional report stated that the North Koreans immediately broke their promise and started working on nuclear weapons early in 1995.

In 2004, Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine Albright explained that Kim Jong Il had tricked her and her colleagues. I am sure that admission will go a long way towards comforting the families of U.S. servicemen and women if that psycho running that poor country decides to launch a nuke at the DMZ or any major city in South Korea. To this date neither Hillary nor Bill have anything to say about their failed attempt to buy off a madman. Now some will said that I am being unfair to Hillary in regards to the 1994 decision to try to pay their way to a solution, here after known as the French solution, but are we not to take Hillary at her word when she tells us that she was a full partner during her husband’s administration. Not to mention the fact that I am sure that when she runs for President next year this and many other topics will come up.

Given all that we know, now one would have to have serious second thoughts about trying to get the North Koreans to do what we want just by offering an aid package. I can only surmise that Hillary was asked to do the Op-Ed piece by Carl Levin many months ago and decided to help the old man from Michigan since he is a failure as a United States Senator. On the other hand, it could be that she just figures that in 2+ years until the next presidential election we will just forget about this position that she has taken or that her allies in the MSM will never make mention of this. I will make a prediction now that North Korea has agreed to return to the six nation talks, an agreement will be reached with great help from the Chinese and the South Koreans. After all, no one wants a crazy neighbor much less one with nuclear weapons. Perhaps Hillary should stick to things closer to home, like the 200,000 jobs that she promised the people of New York, and has yet to deliver, or even being re-elected. Harry Reid has even said that she may not be the best candidate for his party. Now that is the Harry Reid that we all hoped we would get when he became the minority leader. Folks, keep your eye on Hillary as she tries to remake herself in order to run for president. Let not your hearts be troubled, her voting record with always be with her and that will be her downfall. Have a great day everyone.
