Bolton: U.S. Has 'The Libya Model' In Mind For North Korea Denuclearization

Libya's leader Muammar Gaddafi gave up his nuclear weapons program around 2004 in an attempt to normalize relations with the US only to be sodomized to death by Western-backed rebels a few years later.

From The Daily Caller:
The U.S. apparently has the Libya model in mind for North Korean denuclearization, according to White House national security adviser John Bolton.

“Will President Trump insist that Kim give up, ship out, all of his nuclear weapons, all of his nuclear fuel, all of his ballistic missiles, before the U.S. makes any concessions?” Fox News host Chris Wallace asked Bolton Sunday morning.

“Yes, I think that’s what denuclearization means. We have very much in mind the Libya model from 2003, 2004,” Bolton replied.

After Libya forfeited its nuclear arsenal, the country’s leader, Muammar Gaddafi, was violently overthrown by Western-backed rebels and brutally executed. North Korea has long cited the fate of Gaddafi as justification for its nuclear program.

“The Saddam Hussein regime in Iraq and the Gaddafi regime in Libya could not escape the fate of destruction after being deprived of their foundations for nuclear development and giving up nuclear programs of their own accord,” the state-run Korean Central News Agency wrote just two years ago. It is unlikely that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is a fan of the Libya model for denuclearization.
Is Bolton trying to sabotage Trump's peace talks? This is the worst comparison you could make.
