With US support, SKorea cuts trade with North
The S. Korean president has promised to haul N. Korea before the U.N. Security Council?
Well, that oughta do it, North Korea is quite likely shaking in their sandals right about now. The U.N. Security Council?
That’s enough to strike fear into the heart of any rogue nation! ðŸ˜›
The White House offered its full support for South Korea’s moves, and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed with China, a veto-wielding permanent seat holder on the Security Council, how best to handle the precarious situation.
Rumor has it that a container ship, fully loaded with several brands of domestic beer, has left the port of Seattle headed for South Korea. Full Support from the Obama White House? That says one thing to me: BEER SUMMIT!
North Korea has benefited from trade with South Korea, though not to the point where its economy has become dependent on its rival. Pyongyang’s trade with close ally China, for example, is bigger.
North Korea trading with China is just fine with me. They’re as entitled to Chinese crap as we are, and North Korean kids need lead based painted toys, cadmium coated toys, toys that present a choking hazard as much as any American kid.
Just a guess on my part but I am thinking that Wal-Mart needs a Super Center in Pyongyang.
“We have always tolerated North Korea’s brutality, time and again. We did so because we have always had a genuine longing for peace on the Korean peninsula,” President Lee Myung-bak said in a solemn speech to the nation from the halls of the country’s War Memorial.
“But now things are different. North Korea will pay a price corresponding to its provocative acts,” he said.
Yeah, whatever, talk is cheap. Tolerance of your enemy is why they struck you to begin with. Let me give a prime example, the American idea of *live and let live*.
Americans tolerated radical Islam for many years. We were provoked, prodded and probed, we were tested and Islam found us vulnerable. That was why 9-11 occurred. That was why the WTC was bombed the first time. That’s why the Iranian hostage situation came about. Marine Barracks Beirut. Many other attacks and provocations.
After every attack the American people were angry. We had presidents that vowed to make the guilty pay. We would engage in some sort of military action and soon after it would all blow over and most Americans went right back to the apathetic lives and forgot all about it!
America still faces threats from radical Islam. We face them every day, and yet, I don’t see any lesson being taught to Islam. I don’t see any decisive battles being waged in Afghanistan, I see a U.S. president and military leaders that are again allowing *feelings* to get in the way of victory and are letting political correctness dictate their actions.
I see reports nearly every day of suicide bombers killing scores of innocents in Iraq.
I don’t see any massive infusion of border security being put into place to stop the invasion that IS happening along our southern bored, an invasion that plays well for our enemies as they take advantage of American apathy and ineffective leadership.
What I do see is the United States getting involved, once again, in securing another nation, not our own.
I see the United States spending billions of tax dollars that we just don’t have. I see the United States risking, and in all probability, losing the lives of American troops in an effort to make the South Korean people safe and secure from invasions and hostilities from the North Koreans.
The United States government will post an estimated $1.5 trillion budget deficit this year, and our debt is projected to equal 140 percent of gross domestic product within two decades.
We have more than enough trouble right here in America. When does the ineffective *Boy* in the White House take the American people into consideration first? When does Barack Hussein Obama wake up and realize, this is NOT going to work any longer. We are broke! We can’t keep on being the peacemaker for the entire world.
This is a fact; Obama is not the first ineffective president we’ve had, but he is, so far, the most totally ineffective, incompetent and impotent president that this nation has ever seen. So, what does Obama do to show the world that we’re serious? He sends Hillary Clinton in to speak for the USA. He sends her to make public statements and issue information to the press. Sound bites.
For a world already in a fairly precarious position, that may well be the tipping point!
There is a lesson that Obama and Company could benefit from, if you cut the head OFF of the snake, the snake dies! Kim Jung Il is a snake.
That is a *clue*…
