Nuclear escalation in North Korea our fault?

Of course, we did cause the tsunami with a bomb, so I guess somehow North Korea having a wacky leader with a nuclear weapon on the end of a missle must be our fault too.

"Pyongyang, North Korea, Jan. 2 (UPI) -- Pyongyang warned the danger of nuclear war on the Korean peninsula is growing in a New Year's editorial published in North Korea's three major newspapers.
"The danger of a nuclear war is growing on the Korean peninsula as the days go by, owing to the U.S. moves to stifle the (North Korea)," the editorial said.
"All Koreans should stage a powerful struggle for peace against war in order to drive the U.S. troops out of South Korea, remove the very source of a nuclear war and defend the peace and security on the Korean peninsula."
The editorial contrasted with last year's message, making no mention of a need by the North for a nuclear deterrent, and called on the United States to end its hostile attitude toward North Korea, which U.S. President George Bush named to an "axis of evil" that also includes Iran and Iraq.
The United States and North Korea's neighbors are hoping North Korea will agree to restart talks on its nuclear activities in coming weeks, the Financial Times reported."

Who was president when North Korea started it's nuclear program? Hint-it was 1994.
