North Korea: Bush’s Korean crisis

25/06/2003, Just when George Bush and Tony Blair have been having difficulty proving that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), the government of North Korea has been making open declarations that it is proceeding to develop its nuclear weapons capability! Does this mean that war will shortly be declared on North Korea, already on the list of ‘rogue states’ in Bush’s ‘Axis of Evil’, or does it mean the opposite?
Elizabeth Clarke

North Korea: The Korean crisis

08/02/2003, IN OCTOBER 2002 US imperialism provoked a confrontation with the isolated and floundering Stalinist regime of North Korea. Revealing publicly the news (known to the US administration for some time) that Kim Jong-il’s regime had resumed its nuclear weapons programme in violation of the 1994 ’agreed framework’, the Bush administration ignored the fact that the US had consistently reneged on its own 1994 promises.
Lynn Walsh, CWI
