Joe on North Korea

(posted on October 10, 2006)

Here is Joe's statement on North Korea based off some comments he made to reporters yesterday...
We have known for some time that the North Koreans have had enough nuclear fuel to build as many as 10 or 11 nuclear weapons of the size that we used on Hiroshima. Now that they have used some of that fuel to test a nuclear device, it tells us again that we live in a dangerous world; that we have got to work with our allies and we’ve got to work with each other, and not simply use serious foreign policy challenges as just another excuse for partisan politics.

Most important of all, the UN Security Council and the nations in the region with whom we’ve been working, the Chinese in particular, have leverage with the North Koreans. We have to stick with them as we try to get Kim Jong-Il and the North Koreans to do away with this capacity that they have now shown that they have. I think we’re stronger when we are working with the other nations in the region, not just alone, but if the nations in that region and we think that the United States can accomplish something by sitting down with Kim Jong-il in bilateral talks, I also believe that since we are strong, we don’t lose anything -- and we certainly don’t lose any strength we have -- by sitting down with the North Koreans and trying to negotiate the end of their nuclear program.

Connecticut ranks 49 out of all 50 states in its ratio of federal tax spent in state versus federal tax dollars sent to Washington. In other words, Connecticut is the second to last state in the country in terms of getting a return on its federal tax dollars, getting just 66 cents of federal spending for every $1 dollar Connecticut taxpayers are paying in to the system.

Is this true?

Joe Lieberman has one of the worst voting records in the U.S. Senate.

Recently, he's explained that it's ok to miss votes if his vote wouldn't make a difference.

Is this also true?

Lieberman is saying he backs the Bush policy that got us into tis mess.

When Bjush took office ALL the plutonium that is now being used to make N. Korean atomic bombs was under the control of the international community and had cameras on iy 24 hrs a day.

Liebermans an idiot.Only bilateral talks will lead to N. Korea changing course.

I have to agree with anon above. Joe, you supported Bush's failed foreign policies since day one, and have defended an obsurd war against a non-threat while letting the real threat get worse. Talking of supporting bilateral negotiations now is a little like closing the barn door after the horses get out. You've supported the wrong action all along then suddenly act as if you supported the opposite. You can't have it both ways.

Personally, I'm glad to see you leaving the political rhealm, even if it is the hard way. Politicians like you we need fewer of. You don't represent anyone but yourself and your ambitions, so quit acting like you do. Anyone who has more than two working brain cell can see through your double-speak, so stop acting like you're fooling anyone. You have no base to speak of...time to go away Joe.

TO THE WEBMASTER:

you are not linking properly!

Don't know what syntax you are trying to use, but your hyperlink should look like "<"a href=(insert link here)">" followed by "<"/a">" (which closes the link). (note: remove quotes around the <>. I just put them in there so that it didn't automatically hyperlink.)

See HERE for a good html reference

Joe -

Resign in shame for what you've enabled the Bush administration to do. You have wrapped their failed governance around yourself like a skunk stole. Now slink off into retirement and mutter about the good ol' days, and how you supported torture, and sold out our Constitution, and your party. You are a rat fink.

Wow!

Judging by the length of this JoeBlog post, Ned must ahave scored a direct hit with his latest ad.

Keep up the pressure. We need to change course.

Iraq is nearer to Israel than N Korea. Just so happen that N Korea is nearer to the US. Go figure.

Negotiate? You are must joking! Even the funny haired guy in NK gets its when both Bushit and Joe LIE-man doesn't. How do you negotiate when the US army is stuck in TWO wars in Aghanistan and Iraq with no end in sight? Joe LIE-man has just help sold the security of the US away. Like most other things he does, there is a price to it.
