Sanctions, Sanctions, Sanctions!!! Bolton Wags That Old Worn Out Threat Yet Again

Bolton Warns North Korea of More Sanctions If It Doesn't Budge

•He says no sanctions relief without giving up nuclear weapons
•Trump’s ‘ready to make a deal,’ he tells Fox Business Network

U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton warned North Korea it must be willing to completely give up its nuclear weapons program or perhaps face even tougher sanctions.

“If they’re not willing to do it, President Trump has been very clear they’re not getting relief from the crushing economic sanctions that have been imposed on them,” Bolton told the Fox Business Network on Tuesday evening. “And we’ll look at ramping those sanctions up, in fact.”

The threat of greater sanctions risks increasing tensions after Trump’s summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Vietnam last week ended without an agreement. Kim wanted Trump to ease most sanctions in return for dismantling a key nuclear production complex, while the U.S. wanted more action on hidden nuclear facilities, as well as warheads and intercontinental ballistic missiles that could deliver them to the American homeland.

Bolton said the U.S. wouldn’t “buy the same pony that they’ve sold to previous administrations” and called on North Korea “to go back and reassess their strategy.” Accepting Kim’s offer, he said, would’ve “given North Korea a lifeline, giving them a chance to get their breath back economically while potentially still concealing a lot of nuclear weapons capabilities, missiles and the rest of it.”

1. aren't we reaching a point where we have sanctions against so many people

that, de facto, we have sanctioned ourselves?

if it were not obvious i'd wonder what is different about venezuela from the crowd of latino dictators that we support.

2. Being sanctioned by the neocon west is becoming a "badge of honor" as at least it

proves you're doing something positive for your own country.

Laughable, indeed.
