Obama pledges US to defend its ally South Korea

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama on Tuesday pledged the United States would defend South Korea after what the White House branded a provocative, outrageous attack by North Korea on its neighbor. Its options limited, the U.S. sought a diplomatic rather a military response to one of those most ominous clashes between the Koreas in decades.

“South Korea is our ally. It has been since the Korean war,” Obama said in his first comments about the North Korean shelling of a South Korean island. “And we strongly affirm our commitment to defend South Korea as part of that alliance.”

Working to head off any escalation, the U.S. did not reposition any of its 29,000 troops in the South or make other military moves after North Korea fired salvos of shells into the island, setting off an artillery duel between the two sides.

The president, speaking to ABC News, would not speculate when asked about military options. He was expected to telephone South Korean President Lee Myung-bak late Tuesday night. He met earlier with his top national security advisers to discuss next steps.

Obama pledges US to defend its ally South Korea

Ladies and Gentlemen, I submit to you that Barack Hussein Obama is a two-faced, duplicitous, no good, America hating liar and a despicable son of a bitch! I do NOT parse my words in saying so, and unlike some in Congress, I will NOT make my statement and then apologize.

If Barack Hussein Obama wants to try and run that line of BS, “And we strongly affirm our commitment to defend South Korea as part of that alliance.” by the American people, and if he actually expects the American people to believe his hollow words, I only want to ask the people of this nation one thing.

What has Barack Hussein Obama done to protect America so far?

This stealth Muslim piece of garbage pledges that the USA will defend its ally, South Korea, yet we’re not able to defend ourselves.

Has the government given us any believable explanation regarding the ‘contrail‘ that appeared 35 miles off of the California coast earlier this month?

Most government sources sound like they are actors in the Men in Black movies; ‘ It was swamp gas that refracted off of the sunset and interacted with the reflected light from Venus’. That’s their idea of an explanation.

The last time our nation was this threatened was under the administration of Bill Clinton.

Bill and Hillary decided, and yes, she was in on the decision making process (SOURCE), THEY decided that it was just a peachy keen idea to cut our military and intelligence services to the bone. We had satellites, why then did we need troops and intelligence operatives?

That was a tragic mistake on the part of the Clinton’s and their shared presidency. It is a decision that, in MY opinion, was one of the reasons the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 were made possible.

So far, to the best of my knowledge, Obama hasn’t made that faux pas, yet.

Washington has relatively few options when dealing with Pyongyang. Military action is particularly unappealing, since the unpredictable North possesses crude nuclear weapons as well as a huge standing army. North Korea exists largely outside the system of international financial and diplomatic institutions that the U.S. has used as leverage in dealing with other hostile countries, including Iran.

So, I ask again, if we can’t control the activities of the drug cartels and ILLEGALS right here in America, if we can’t stop the flow of drugs and ILLEGALS that are entering our own nation, how then are we going to control a rogue nation like North Korea?

North Korea has also resisted pressure from its major ally, China, which appears to be nervous about the signs of instability in its neighbor.

If North Korea is resisting pressure from China, if they have that much gall, does Barack Hussein Obama actually believe that he can somehow exert pressure on the North Koreans and with the wave of a hand, just make this all go away?

“We strongly condemn the attack and we are rallying the international community to put pressure on North Korea,” Obama said in the ABC interview, specifically citing the need for China’s help. Obama said every nation in the region must know “this is a serious and ongoing threat.”

I’m pretty sure that ‘strong condemnation’ has Kim Jung Il and his spawn, Kim Jung Un, trembling in their shoes.

Some are saying that North Korea is much akin to an impertinent and evil child. The North Koreans do these things from time to time simply to get attention. Like the kid that burns the house down, and when asked WHY they burned the house down, they reply, “Mommy wasn’t paying attention to me. She’ll pay attention to me now!”

North Korea threw a temper tantrum, and the world is paying attention.
