Yesterday saw world leaders react in universal condemnation of North Korea’s test of what it claims was a hydrogen bomb.
Whether or not that is true remains to be seen, but whatever the outcome, one person who has already been taking heat over the issue is presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
One of the favourite arguments of Clinton rivals is that she was incompetent and asleep at the wheel as Secretary of State. If this North Korean detonation does turn out to be an H-Bomb, which is 100 times more powerful than everyday nuclear warheads, Clinton can expect yet more attacks, accusations, and claims that she is unit for the presidency.
Marco Rubio stated, “If this test is confirmed, it will be just the latest example of the failed Obama-Clinton foreign policy”.
Carly Fiorina, another GOP presidential hopeful, said that watching Iran violate UN sanctions and be rewarded for it has encouraged North Korea and allowed conditions under which it could conduct such a test to arise.
Donald Trump used the situation to capture more attention by claiming that China has the power to stop North Korea and that the US has the power, which it isn’t using, to force China to do so.
Whether or not North Korea detonated an H-Bomb remains to be seen and we will soon find out. Whatever the outcome, though, you can rest assured Hillary Clinton is going to have yet more questions to answer, as the seeds she sewed as secretary of state sprout and grow into dangerous, potentially deadly situations.
