As Timeline reports, over a single tree rising in the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea, the United States and North Korea nearly went to war. The United Nations Command sent ten officers and five South Korean staff to cut back from a critical checkpoint the 80-foot Normandy poplar that obstructed the view.

2/2.847 President Bush addressed North Korean nuclear weapons development. Dennis Brack-Pool / Getty images The Bush administration has again tried to negotiate a termination of its weapons program for North Korea. As described by The New York Times, George W. Bush criticized North Korea for secretly building a bomb and violating the terms of his agreement with the United States. As the Times explains, “The administration intended to overthrow Kim Jong-il’s government by enforcing sanctions,” but when Kim Jong Il revealed that his country had a nuclear device, the U.S. agreed to bargain for a delay in the construction of arms to exchange food aid.

The president does not seem to have received messages from Pyongyang showing a serious interest in diplomacy. If Pyongyang was willing to compromise his administration found the price of the North too high. “Next: under Donald Trump, the path continues to change.

We had a whole plot about an impeachment, but we discarded it because we were afraid that Louis-Dreyfus first said that someone else might get to it. Veep also took home the Emmy that night for a third year in a row for outstanding comedy series. This came after the show was announced to end next year.
