A brief reminder...

...for those who look at Iraq and the election and sigh "if only, if only...," insisting at least to themselves that no matter what John Kerry said in the campaign, upon being elected he would whip off his MachoMan disguise and show himself a peacenik.
Seoul, South Korea, Nov. 7 (UPI) - Newly declassified documents revealed the United States planned as recently as 1998 to drop nuclear bombs on North Korea if the country attacked South Korea.

As part of "scenario 5027," 24 F15-E bombers flew simulation missions at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in North Carolina to drop mock nuclear bombs on a firing range between January and June 1998, the Korea Times reported Sunday.

The revelation followed claims by a South Korean lawmaker that the U.S. drew up plans to launch preemptive strikes on key targets in North Korea in 1994. ...

The declassified documents also said the U.S. had kept nuclear weaponry in South Korea until at least 1998, despite officially claiming it had withdrawn all nuclear warheads in 1991.
Let me think, now. Who was president in the two years mentioned, 1994 and in 1998? Must have been some warmonger Republican, yes? Hmmm, let me think....
