Jack Carter on Foreign Policy

 


On Axis of Evil: Are you better off today than 4 years ago?

Q: Mr. Carter, on Sept. 1, 2003, your father wrote an op-ed piece regarding North Korea, and he wrote: "An eventual military confrontation between the US and North Korea seems likely if negotiations fail." Do you agree with your father's assessment?

CARTER: My father knows what he's talking about. Let me ask you a question that Ronald Reagan asked some years. When you look at this Axis of Evil, "Are you better off today than you were four years ago?"

ENSIGN: I didn't know we were running for president tonight, but I guess that's ok. I believe this North Korea issue is a very, very serious issue. To have Kim Jong Il have a nuclear weapon is very dangerous, not just for what he would have himself, but also because he's becoming friends with people like Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, and the leader of Iran. These are dangerous, dangerous people in the world and we cannot afford them to get nuclear weapons. The leader of North Korea, he's a lunatic, and what he would do with one is very dangerous.
