Encouraging Nuclear Proliferation

George W. Bush, in his axis of evil speech on 2002-01-29 transcript, announced America’s plans to annihilate Iraq, Iran and North Korea. Reputedly, all three then sought to acquire nuclear weapons to defend themselves. Only North Korea succeeded. The USA indeed backed from down attacking North Korea after it demonstrated its ICBMs (Inter Continental Ballistic Missiles). What is the world to learn from this? If the USA threatens you, (perhaps only because you have oil or other valuable natural resources) your only hope is to acquire nukes. This is hardly a good American strategy for nuclear non-proliferation.
