Enron, Watergate, and Teapot Dome: all Bolton's fault

Pogge and The Poor Man are blaming John Bolton for the mess in North Korea.

Are they referring to the fact that North Korea got mad when Bolton described the nightmarishly hellish life there as a "hellish nightmare," and when he described their tyrannical dictator as a "tyrannical dictator?"

If that's the beef against Bolton, I have no problem with him. Clinton and Albright showed what happens when you try to be nice and bribe North Korea not to develop weapons. North Korea will take your money and then develop the weapons anyway. Begging/bribing/appeasing doesn't work with North Korea. Bolton just called a spade a spade. North Korea was a debacle long before Bolton got involved, and likely will remain a debacle long after he's gone.
