How could you, Mr. President?

Well, all diplomatic entreaties have failed (such as were even attempted) and North Korea tested its first nuke yesterday. On the scale of Bad Things this is right up there. 10 being the appocalypse and 1 being a Richard Simmons Evangelical Revival, I'd call this a solid 7.

While blame can only principally be laid at the (weird and irrational) feet of Kim Jong-Il, I feel that some must also be apportioned to the White House. American diplomacy and influence is the greatest in the world, and surely when it comes to nuclear containment, we have the most to lose by failure, and the most to gain with success.

So shame on you, Mr. President! May your record be forever tarnished and your legacy relegated to obscurity and ridicule. Really, Mr. Clinton, you have much to answer for.
