Susan Rice, former US ambassador to the UN and national security adviser to Barack Obama, has blasted President Donald Trump’s “reckless rhetoric” on North Korea, saying that the US can “tolerate” a nuclear-armed Pyongyang.
In an op-ed published on Wednesday in the New York Times, the former ambassador to the UN downplayed North Korea’s threats, saying “we have long lived with successive Kims’ belligerent and colorful rhetoric.” …
Rice gained notoriety in 2012, when she described the attack on the US diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya as a spontaneous response to an an anti-Islamic video produced in California. Four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stephens, were killed in the attack.
Just like Israel can tolerate nuclear Iran. Sure. That was partly Obama’s fault.
What’s changed is that now, for the first time, North Korea has the ability to carry through on its threats. Iran will soon have it too.
Unstable and apparently irrational communist and Islamic states that threaten the West with nukes, especially the US, is a new phenomenon. How do the left know it will be ok? (Because communists and Islam are the left’s allies perhaps?) Few thought that Islamic fundamentalists would bring down the Twin Towers in New York, either.
