Look at this utter nonsensical of a guy!! He is suddenly waking up to the dangers of proliferation from North Korea to Al Qaeda! I think he has completely forgotten the mess that Pakistan and the Khan network has already unleashed!
Where was he and his cronies when all that was going on? These are some of the questions that Americans need to ask! North Korea did NOT become a Nuclear Power on its own…. someone must have helped them. Who was it? Was the AQ Khan – independently working as Pak Prez Musharraf and the US would have us believe – network so well endowed and so secret that they could single-handedly CREATE a nuclear power from scratch?? For being so well endowed and powerful, they would have to work under the radar screen of all the nations and their spies of the world and yet send the centrifuges and their technology without anyone noticing it. Anyone with a bit of common sense can easily fathom that this would have gone on while everyone in power would be winking at these indiscretions – if not directly (more plausible) supporting and backing them! The critical question is – WHO were these powers and spy networks??
If that were so then the first entity that would have been given this capability would have been Al Qaeda… As religiously directed as these guys are are we to believe that this team of AQ Khan – with all their tentacles and wherewithal chose to help North Korea over and above Al Qaeda?? If that isn’t nonsense I dont know what is!
Just think over the entire scenario carefully. Until now everyone is busy targeting the Little Kim of North Korea at this time. But has anyone asked – really asked – who gave them all this? How did North Korea really become a Nuke Power. Its not as easy as putting together a sand castle! If the Americans can ask this basic question I would think that they would have done something good for the world as well.
To know what actually happened, please do read this post with quotes from the Indian Intelligence sources in the story on Musharraf’s popular fiction book.
President Bush said Wednesday the United States would stop North Korea from transferring nuclear weapons to Iran or al-Qaida and that the communist regime would then face “a grave consequence.”
Bush refused to spell out how the United States would retaliate. “They’d be held to account,” the president said in an ABC News interview.
In light of North Korea’s Oct. 9 test detonation of a nuclear bomb, Bush warned that any transfer of nuclear material elsewhere in the world by the North would be considered a grave threat to the security of the United States. He previously used “grave threat” in relation to
Saddam Hussein, whose government was toppled in the U.S.-led war in 2003.
“If we get intelligence that they’re about to transfer a nuclear weapon, we would stop the transfer, and we would deal with the ships that were taking the — or the airplane that was dealing with taking the material to somebody,” the president said.
