Testy Bush defends policy on North Korea
He counters claim communist nation is a stronger

Peter Wallsten and Peter Spiegel, Los Angeles Times

(07-0Cool 04:00 PDT Chicago -- President Bush on Friday
defended his administration's policies on North Korea,
questioning claims that the communist country had
grown into a greater threat since he entered the White
House, even before it test-fired seven missiles this

Bush said he still did not know whether one of the
rockets, a long-range intercontinental missile, had
been aimed at the United States or if it could have
traveled that far. But he said the controversial U.S.
missile defense system had offered a "reasonable"
chance of shooting the missile out of the sky had it
become necessary.

Still, the president grew testy when he was asked why,
if his policies were working, North Korea appeared to
be enhancing its nuclear capabilities and growing more
aggressive over time.

"These problems didn't arise overnight, and they don't
get solved overnight. It takes a while," Bush said,
offering the most adamant defense of his policies
since North Korea escalated the confrontation this

Bush held an unusual news conference outside of
Washington as diplomats continued working at the
United Nations on ways to pressure North Korea to turn
away from its drive for nuclear weapons and rejoin
stalled international negotiations. Japan and the
United States are pressing the Security Council to
vote Monday on sanctions targeting North Korea's
missile program, despite opposition from veto-holding
members China and Russia.

At his news conference, Bush took pains to counter a
question based on intelligence information that North
Korea has expanded its nuclear weapons capability in
recent years. When a reporter cited such reports. Bush
declined to dispute the basis of the question, but
challenged the reporter: "Can you verify that?"

"We don't know -- maybe you know more than I do --
about increasing the number of nuclear weapons," Bush

In a series of congressional hearings last year, top
U.S. intelligence officials, including then-CIA
Director Porter Goss, testified that North Korea's
nuclear capability had increased since 2002, when
intelligence assessments estimated it possessed one or
two nuclear weapons. Goss in the Feb. 16, 2005,
congressional appearance said: "They have a greater
capability than that assessment. ... It has increased
since then."

Director of National Intelligence John Negroponte,
asked during a Feb. 28, 2005, hearing about the
assessment that North Korea had one or two weapons,
cited a "potential there for a number of weapons to be
in their possession" and said the government in
Pyongyang was "regularly" producing fissile material
for weapons.

The issue of North Korea's missiles is contributing to
questions about Bush's foreign policy record and his
ability to curb nuclear threats in an election year in
which Republicans have decided they will, once again,
campaign on national security and the economy. On
Friday, the president was on the defensive on North
Korea and other national security issues and, during
an hourlong news conference, there was little
attention paid to his claim that the economy is in
good shape.

Bush ducked questions about a possible U.S. military
response to North Korea, and he emphasized that he
would continue pursuing diplomatic solutions, even if
they prove "slow and cumbersome."

But he rejected conducting negotiations one-on-one,
insisting that he needed China and other neighbors at
the table so that North Korean leader Kim Jong Il did
not make the United States appear to be the blockade
to an agreement.

"One thing I'm not going to let us do is get caught in
the trap of sitting at the table alone with the North
Koreans," Bush insisted, rejecting the criticism by
Democrats who say such talks would be the only way to
break the logjam.

Bush conceded that the anti-missile system shielding
the United States from an attack was "modest" and
unproven. But he said it was ready for use to shoot
down one of the Korean missiles if needed.

"It's new research," he said. "It's hard for me to
give you a probability of success."

Bush's assessment was in line with that given recently
by military commanders. Air Force Lt. Gen. Henry
Obering, director of the Missile Defense Agency, gave
a similarly optimistic assessment during a National
Defense University address last month.

But outside experts -- including the Government
Accountability Office -- have been more critical of
the program in recent months. The centerpiece of the
system, nine interceptor missiles in Alaska and two at
Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa Barbara County, has
been plagued by glitches and has not had a successful
test in nearly four years.

(much typical Kathleen idiocy snipped)

President Bush's record in Iraq and Afganistan

Innocent people murdered by Saddam: 2,000,000
Innocent people murdered by Saddam after Bush got to him: ZERO
Terrorist Bounty paid by Saddam to suicide bomber families: $25,000
Terrorist Bounties paid by Saddam after Bush got to him: ZERO
Chemical Warfare Agents Manufactured in Iraq: 9,000,000 lb
School Children in my town targeted by Al Qaeda: 743
Kids in my town murdered by Iraqi Chem Warfare Agents: ZERO
Kids in your town murdered by Iraqi Chem Warfare Agents: ZERO
Kids in Kathleen's town murdered by Chem Warfare Agents: ZERO
Kids outside the US murdered by Iraqi Chem Agents: THOUSANDS


Nobel Prize Nominations resulting from Iraq: ONE, GEORGE BUSH

Days without a Terrorist Attack on U.S. Soil: 1761

Vote Democratic! Register in as many precincts as you can. Vote as
often as you can. It worked in Wisconsin and Illinois, it can work
in your State.

Repeal Bush's nasty anti-terrorist policies. A few thousand terrorist
murders on U.S. soil will be good for us. Who knows, some of those
school kids might even grow up to vote Republican.

Besides, a lot of good Democrats need to buy Presidential Pardons and
we need a friendly President who doesn't throw corporate criminals in
