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.
