Bad decision making in so many cases comes back to bite you hard. This is a major reason why we are, where we are at with North Korea. Will we learn from this?
From our Dear Friend Bill Wilson of the Daily Jot:
Many Christians have been asking whether the threat of a North Korea nuclear attack was judgment on the United States for its sins against God. I tend to believe that the leader of North Korea is crazy like a fox and in the end is doing what his father before him did-rattle the sabers hard enough to get concessions to stop his nuclear program. Translated: get paid for secretly continuing his nuclear program. Notwithstanding, the North Korean nuclear situation is the consequences of having bad leadership in the White House at a critical juncture. A US President gave North Korea nuclear technology under the auspices of using it for peaceful power. Today, we are faced with paying for that decision.
President Bill Clinton’s long-held belief on nuclear weapons was that if everyone had them, nobody would use them and the world would be a safer place. On June 11, 1993, the US agreed to not use force or nuclear weapons against North Korea if it remained in the nonproliferation treaty. North Korea continued to develop its nuclear weapons program. On October 18, 1994, after 17 months of negotiations, Clinton signed a deal to give North Korea light water reactor nuclear technology if it stopped building nuclear weapons, saying, “Today all Americans should know that as a result of this achievement on Korea, our Nation will be safer and the future of our people more secure.”
In his commitment to communist North Korea, Clinton is quoted as saying, “This US-North Korean agreement will help to achieve a long-standing and vital American objective: an end to the threat of nuclear proliferation on the Korean peninsula.” Heritage Foundation archives document in an October 20 letter to North Korean strongman Kim Jong Il, (father of current dictator Kim Jong Un) Clinton vastly expanded America’s commitments under the formal agreement to finance fuel shipments and reactors, ease its long-standing trade embargo and move toward first-ever diplomatic relations with North Korea. North Korea went on to develop nuclear weapons and to assist Iran in its nuclear weapons program.
Instead of having a safer future, the world is far more dangerous because of Clinton’s reckless shenanigans. President Donald Trump has not hesitated to say he will use military force if North Korea persists. We need to realize that, thanks to Clinton, North Korea has lethal power, and future peace might only be secured with the price of many lives. Romans 12:18 says, “If it be possible, as much as lies in you, live peaceably with all men.” Peace is a two-way street, especially when millions of lives are at stake. Sadly, Trump may be forced to end what Clinton foolishly began. To me, this is the consequence of electing a bad and immoral leader rather than the judgment of God. Free will has its responsibilities.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
