You Angry Little Madman with Fist Raised to the Sky
While Twitter was blowing up over Rand Paul’s amazing filibuster in Washington yesterday, news of Kim Jong-un’s latest threats to the United States went largely unnoticed.
While he had been in the news recently following a visit former NBA star Dennis “The Worm” Rodman, this seemed to slip under the radar. Rodman made the obligatory rounds of the weekend talk shows, probably getting paid a handsome sum for his appearances, bizarrely calling Kim a “great guy” and his father and grandfather “great leaders”. He even delivered this message to President Obama on one of the shows:
Hey, he just met me,
And this is crazy,
But here’s his number,
So call him, maybe?
North Korea is threatening a preemptive nuclear strike on the US, making people in the US fear that he may be targeting San Francisco or Los Angeles.
Why don’t these dictators realize that a nuclear strike on us means you are a parking lot? Is the reasoning that if you are going to die, you are going to take as many with you as possible?
Mental illness runs in Kim’s family. We saw it so often with his father and his obsession with Disneyland.
A [North Korean] foreign ministry spokesman said: “Since the United States is about to ignite a nuclear war, we will be exercising our right to pre-emptive nuclear attack against the headquarters of the aggressor in order to protect our supreme interest.”
While most policy experts don’t think that North Korea has a delivery system to reach the United States, he is definitely working on achieving that capability, along with Iran. It really wouldn’t surprise me that Iran and North Korea are working in conjunction with each other.
[UN] Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said: “The international community will not tolerate its pursuit of nuclear weapons.”
We will condemn you in the strongest possible terms.
More sanctions. Now the UN has voted to keep North Korea from importing luxuries. That will only work as long as China, who shares a border with North Korea, does not allow such things across that border.
They should ban the importation of toilet paper to that nation, that would make them change their attitude in a hurry.
Assuming they use toilet paper……
“These sanctions will bite and bite hard,” said US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice.
She added: “North Korea will achieve nothing by continued threats and provocations. These will only further isolate the country and its people and undermine international efforts to promote peace and stability in northeast Asia.”
In a further statement, Ambassador Rice blamed a youtube video for North Korea’s continued experimentation with nuclear bombs.
In Britain, Foreign Secretary William Hague threatened boy dictator Kim Jong-Un with more “isolation”.
Because isolation has been working wonders on North Korean dictators. In the end, as in Iran, sanctions only hurt the populace, not the military or petty little dictators.
All of this is being pushed along by joint American and South Korean military exercises, pushing mental midget Kim to the brink.
Even China, Kim’s only major ally, has been getting pissed off at PingPyongyinyang after their underground test blasts near the Chinese border.
China has to be good for something besides feigned outrage. I say feigned, because I’m pretty sure they are encouraging him behind closed doors. What better way to keep our focus off them and their intentions towards Taiwan? China is the one that needs to step in and stop this man. It is in their best interests to stop him. They don’t want US troops on their border, and if Kim attacks South Korea, which he has also threatened to do, the US will be on their doorstep before they realize it.
All the while, Washington continues to want to cut military spending, and fly drones over the US. While there are enemies within our borders, Iran and North Korea’s nuclear ambitions represent the greatest threat to our national security at the moment.
