    With BO's close friend and campaign financer Jeff Imelt and his company, GE, still doing business with Iran, some of GE's advanced technology will make its way to North Korea, shortening the time for them to develop the missile.

    I don't think BO knows much about North Korea except how to bow to their dictator.

    Haven't come across this relevant and pertinent news article in The Washington Post, The New York Times, MSNBC, or The Christian Science Monitor. For all the deficiencies of current reporting, there are times that The Deseret News shines and this is one of those times. Great article for cooler heads. Thank you for getting me to come back down to earth.

    Having been in the military and on the North Korean border many times, in the 1970s and 1980s, during the Cold War, it was never cold except from the weather in a tent and sometimes warm water.

    President Clinton and Secretary of State Clinton have provided money and incentives for Korea to continue their onslaught of nuclear and rocket power to the world, even in the middle eastern countries. Axis of evil even got away with a lot during the Bush administration but is flaunting more now, even with the young President and military power.

    Years away doesn't mean anything as 1993 until now is 20 years and that has been relatively easy for the Koreans to get to this point. The Russians and Chinese may not help directly but with North Korean and Iran scratching each other's backs, they may break the code they need to make it worthwhile.

    We never really sanction North Korea but having been in Korea when the tree chopping incident happened in the 1970s, they have a lot of power, with the United States military influence going away in East Asia and treating our allies like Israel badly.
