Over the past few days, tensions between the United States and North Korea have spiked dramatically, leading to much talk about whether the two nations are on the verge of going to war.
Many people have been wondering just how the United States let North Korea get this far, and White House Deputy Assistant Sebastian Gorka put the blame squarely at the feet of former President Bill Clinton and former President Barack Obama, The Daily Caller reported.
Gorka was being interviewed by CBN when he made those accusations. The news station played a clip of President Donald Trump discussing the North Korea situation back in 1999, saying that the United States should do something about the regime before it became too much of a threat.
“The president saw the price of appeasement which happened afterwards during the Clinton administration and then during the Obama administration, and today we are paying the price of that appeasement of Pyongyang,” Gorka said after the clip was played.
He is absolutely right. While North Korea’s missile and nuclear program has become a serious threat under Trump, it is not because Trump hasn’t done anything.
North Korea didn’t suddenly master ICBM and nuclear technology in the eight months Trump has been in office — this took them decades to do.
Obama did nothing to stop North Korea during his eight years in office. Clinton tried to placate them during his two terms, and he failed miserably. Now we stand on the edge of a potentially very serious war because neither of them had the spine to do something when it could have made a difference.

Gorka also spoke about how history has shown that appeasement doesn’t work, whether you’re talking about Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union or North Korea.
“Dictatorships do not want what we want. They wish to destabilize the international system, and they wish to keep people enslaved,” Gorka stated.
Tragically, we can now add North Korea to the laundry list of nations that Democrats thought appeasement could work on, only to have it completely blow up in their face.
If (though now it appears more a question of when) we go to war with North Korea, the blame for that war should lie squarely at the feet of Obama and Clinton.
They tried to take the easy way out with North Korea, and now we are going to suffer the consequences of their incompetence.
