Nuclear test defied 2006 international sanctions
Why are people afraid of other countries having a nuclear weapon? It's not like
they are any more or less likely to sell such technology to a non-nation since
they aren't stupid and know that it could as easily be used against them. Nor
are they likely to use it on another nation since they know that the reaction
would be swift and would result in their nation being obliterated.So
I think people need to take a step back from this and realize that North Korea
will get nuclear technology, so will Iran and many other nations. Get used to
it, treat them as equals, and resort to diplomacy and they will do what is in
their best interest which while selfish will also be in our own best interests
as well.Anyone who is foolish enough to think that North Korea is
going to sell nuclear technology needs to seriously reconsider including the
administration. North Korea knows the history of al-Qaida and other terrorists
organizations and realize that they used to be friends with the United States
who supplied them weapons and are now our enemies. They aren't going to repeat
"Obama ... called for a "strong resolution" by the U.N."Gee ...
nothing like harsh language to get a Despot to stand up and take notice. I'm
sure Kim Jong-Il is quaking in his boots.Our leaders just don't get
it.Despot's, tyrants and terrorists don't care what you say to them
... only what you do to them.
Did Obama consult the Dixie Chicks on this? How about Sean Penn or Harry Reid?
Where is the outcry from the left? Sounds like Iraq and WMDs all over again,
doesn't it? Liberal hypocrites!
Big bad clueless Barak. Let's see how about another real tough UN mandate,
whoops that won't work North Korea doesn't pay any attention to the UN and China
and Russia will water down any condemnation. Since Clinton and his bargain with
the country gave them food to fed their army and sell to their own citizens, in
return for the unkept promise to not do what they are now doing, we talk tough
but words are toothless. North Korea is like the strange little kid in school
who uses threats to get starved for attention. How about ignoring all the crazy
things they do, hoping they'll just go away. Both NK and Iran will do whatever
they want, regardless of all the stomping and screaming we do. No Obama, you
can't get anywhere being buddies with little bullies. If you learn that lesson
now, it will save you lots of trouble.
Obama's Response: "That was an uncalled for action, an aggression that really
was not nice and promotes global warming. We all know you guys are capable of
making some decent fuel efficiant cars like your allies to the south, why don't
you focus your energy on that instead? In return I will issue a statement taking
blame for burning your forests, raping and pilliaging your women and children
and villiages back in the Korean war and the U.S. will look like weaklings I
want us to be and you will be economically stronger in the long run! I'll have
Al Gore give you a large number of Carbon offsets, and will ship you all the
corn you want for free. To close the deal I'll tell you what I am going to do,
We will disarm our nuclear weapon's program first to show our good faith, how
does that grab you, and in the next olympic games our basketball team will play
you guys standing on our knees!!! All you have to do is drop your nuclear
weapons program, pretty please?" That is Obama's solution to the problem!
Go get 'em Obama show us your not made of jello.
Please spare us this nonsense. A "strong" U.N. resolution? What does this
mean? Kim Jong Il will get another slap on the wrist and be told to not do it
again or else. Trade sanctions only harm the people of North Korea, not their
leaders, which means in another year pictures of starving masses in North Korea
will surface and the world will once again condemn the U.S. for this starvation
(because we are the ones asking for a stonger U.N. resolution).
is going to get a lot of people killed.
Sounds like the Democrats are gonna break out their spitballs.... I'm sure Kim
Jong-il is shaking in his boots...
Is he going go put them in the corner and tell them to be good?
Sounds like the American Military/Complex will win again. Our hopes for a new
world of peace may be dashed on the rocks of the evangelist hopes for
Armageddon. And the big arms corporations will drain the last assets from the
current and future American people.The U.N. is no longer a force in
the world, courtesy of the American Conservative groups who have destroyed its
ability to make a meaningful difference. The U.N. is now just a mouthpiece for
American war mongers, spitting out resolutions for their use in justifying
war.Our real problem is, however, in the next, or rather the current
war, our military might will be as useless as tits on a bull as the saying goes.
Our current war is a war of religions for the control of the minds of men. And
all the bombing, killing and conquering wont mean a thing except to perpetuate
the bombing, killing and conquering.
Omar, what are you talking about? Bush took North Korea off the terrorist list.
Also, what exactly is Obama supposed to do in five months about North Korea that
Bush did NOT do in eight years?This is a serious problem with no
easy answers. Another Korean War is NOT the answer. Soule, South Korea is ONLY
forty or fifty miles from thousands of North Korean missiles. Let
Obama and his experts handle this without your know-nothing input.
I'm just wondering what we will give them this time. North-Korea is like a
spoiled child who knows it's parents are afraid to do anything to take control
or discipline them and will just give them whatever they want when they throw a
tantrum.- We've always sent them food and other aid to help their
strugling economy and their starving people.- When they acted up
during the Clinton years he gave them the money, material and technology needed
to start their nuclear program (with a promise it would only be used to develope
nuclear power plants to help their impoverished people).- President
Bush gave them cheap oil (subisidised by the USA) if they would dismantle their
Nuclear Weapons program (they took the oil and pretended they were dismantling
their Nuclear Weapons plant, but obviously they were just faking and lieing
(like they always do).- NOW what will President Obama promise them
to placate them for a few more years (while they continue to thumb their noses
at the UN and the rest of the world)?
starts with trying to force gas prices so high, that people have no choice but
to buy these worthless hybrids, all for the sake of trying to fix something
(Natural increase in the Earth's temperature) that can't be changed anyways.
Yes, I want to keep the earth clean, but quit forcing us to move in the
direction you and a few others think is "best" for the world. Listen to the
voters, not your ear of political prudence. You're a disgrace.
tried too kick the n.koreans butts'back in the 50's.PRES TRUMAN declared that he
was too harsh and hostile.You know the rest,"HE FIRED MCARTHUR".I rest my case!!
Obama and his experts? Who Nancy Pelosi? She is in the region, maybe
she can drop by and visit Kim Jong-il on her way back to the states... but most
would probably consider that torturing poor Kim...
I'M glad obama got elected.... hope fully the world will come to an end
soon...naw obama is just such a great leader he won't let America down...
That's all King Obama does. And the U.N. will write another resolution that
means nothing. What is Hillary going to do?
Iran has said "israel needs to be wiped off the planet. yeah that's a rational
thinking fellow right there, let's give him some H-bombs for some diplomacy,
then the world will be safe.
Bush was a complete failure w/NK.He didn't invade and declare "mission
accomplished" after two hours.
I'm more afraid of Washington D.C., than I am of North Korea. Who is Obama
kidding? Pyongyang's "blatant defiance" never stole 10 TRILLION dollars of
taxpayer's money. Kim Jong Il is about as harmless as an Tennessee barbeque!
Obama, Reid, and Pelosi? Now that's a frightening regime. Watch your wallet,
I think Obama is going to take a drastic measure, he is going to put them in a
"Time Out"! That means no food, no oil, and no other stuff the common North
Korean needs to survive, but the leaders will be just fine. This will encourage
a South Korean invasion through propoganda by the North Korean leadership. They
have guts and they are proving it right now. Obama at 6:22 a.m. had it right, he
is going to get a lot of people killed! (Obama that is).
Times and things have changed since Bush was in office,N. Korea
wasn't testing intercontinental missiles and doing nuclear tests like they are
now,They have no fear of Obama,they know there nothing
behind his "tough" talk.
You're ALL wrong! Obama has it sussed - he's going to give them "THE LOOK"!
