At Least Someone Is Thinking Ahead

With North Korea working ever-faster to get their long-range missile program flying (and with potential NUKES to boot) I was pretty concerned that Glorious Leader directed the cutting of missile systems. Of course, the argument was that these systems were unproven (even though they have repeatedly tested well) and we need the extra money- to fund things like nationalized health care.

Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, at least, sees the threat of a nuclear bomb flying our way as very serious and has set up missile defenses in Hawaii. Nice. Go on vacation and watch the might of our military in action all at the same time.

The Test Has Arrived

If you were asleep when the dreaded red phone rang, last night, you missed a very important call. Because South Korea is actively engaged in the US-led sanction discussions at the U.N., regarding North Korea’s continued missile and nuclear testing, North Korea says it is no longer bound by the cease-fire treaty of the Korean War.

If South Korea moves to intercept North Korean ships with the intent to inspect for illegal weapons material, North Korea will consider it an act of aggression. President Obama has announced (another) visit to Saudi Arabia in order to discuss peace in the Middle East.

Whatever. The guy had best grow a set of balls quick. Korea, armed with nukes, is about to start World War III. God help us. I, for all of my berating of Glorious Leader regarding his inept policy thus far, pray that he listens to reason- i.e. his military commanders – in deciding an aggressive course of action.

I think what scares me the most is that we are being bitch-slapped by a guy with a chick’s name. This is really starting to suck.
