Amid all the talk of the situation regarding North Korea and nuclear weapons there's very little interest in how we got here. The BBC are trying to use this crisis to show that their current hate figure, President Donald Trump, is to blame. However a perusal of this chronology https://www.armscontrol.org/factsheets/dark chronic shows that weaknesses shown by previous US presidents, mostly by Bill Clinton (partly assisted by former President Jimmy Carter) lead us to this position.
However blaming Democrats isn't an option for the BBC so don't expect that sort of analysis.
As an aside, I confidently predict that just as Bill Clinton's policies led to North Korea developing nuclear weapons and threatening the USA, Barack Hussein Obama's policies will lead to Iran being in a similar position within another decade. The left never learn that appeasement and weakness in the face of vile regimes leads not to peace in our time but to bigger problems only shortly into the future.
Meanwhile the BBC cheerlead for US Democrat presidents whatever they do, thus hiding the truth from their public.
