Today was a sad sad day for George bush’s speech writers. In response to the underground nuclear test conducted by North Korea today he said “Once again, North Korea has defied the will of the international community, and the international community will respond” (See here). Now unless I’m very much mistaken when America wanted to invade Iraq (and wherever else) it was presented with very strong opposition by said “international community”. In fact the UN refused to agree to the war, hence the coalition was formed and no UN troops went in. Funny how often i feel the phrase “doubt standards” to be appropriate when talking about America.
It’s also interesting that America (and everyone else for that matter) is so concerned about North Korea using nuclear weapons, yet America is the only country to ever use them offensively. Oooo, do i feel the same phrase coming on again….
