North Korea’s announcement yesterday that it successfully completed a hydrogen bomb test coupled with Iran’s revelation that it has precision-guided missiles that carry nuclear warheads highlight Obama-Clinton foreign policy shortcomings:
North Korea says it has successfully carried out a hydrogen bomb test, which if confirmed, will be a first for the reclusive regime and a significant advancement for its military ambitions.
A hydrogen bomb is more powerful than plutonium weapons, which is what North Korea used in its three previous underground nuclear tests.
During the confirmation process for Secretary of State, Clinton said her goal was to end North Korea’s nuclear program, but she ultimately failed, as the regime reportedly conducted nuclear tests, prior to this year’s test, in 2009 and 2013.
The Clinton-backed nuclear agreement with Iran is also proving to be another black mark on Clinton’s foreign policy record. As the U.S. “plans to dismantle nearly all sanctions on Iran under” the nuclear deal, Iran revealed its precision-guided missiles:
Iran unveiled a new underground missile depot on Tuesday with state television showing Emad precision-guided missiles in store which the United States says can take a nuclear warhead and violate a 2010 U.N. Security Council resolution.
As we move into 2016, it is increasingly clear that the Obama-Clinton foreign policy is failing to effectively address Iran and North Korea, two of the most dangerous adversaries facing the United States and our allies around the world.
