North Korea Threatens to NUKE This U.S. City
North Korea just won’t QUIT! They have refused to stand down with their threats and continue to poke at the sleeping giant with a short, chubby, little stick. Now they have come at the U.S. with a very direct threat! That little leader of theirs’ must have a death wish…
North Korea is at it again. This time, the pudgy kid with the bad haircut, Kim Jong Un, is making a specific threat to our nation’s capital.
Via Fox News:
North Korea on Monday issued its latest belligerent threat, warning of an indiscriminate “pre-emptive nuclear strike of justice” on Washington and Seoul, this time in reaction to the start of huge U.S.-South Korean military drills.
Such threats have been a staple of young North Korean leader Kim Jong Un since he took power after his dictator father’s death in December 2011. But they spike especially when Washington and Seoul stage what they call annual defensive springtime war games. Pyongyang says the drills, which were set to start Monday and run through the end of April, are invasion rehearsals.
The North’s powerful National Defense Commission threatened strikes against targets in the South, U.S. bases in the Pacific and the U.S. mainland, saying its enemies “are working with bloodshot eyes to infringe upon the dignity, sovereignty and vital rights” of North Korea.
“If we push the buttons to annihilate the enemies even right now, all bases of provocations will be reduced to seas in flames and ashes in a moment,” the North’s statement said.
A pre-emptive large-scale military strike that would end the authoritarian rule of the Kim dynasty is highly unlikely. There is also considerable outside debate about whether North Korea is even capable of the kind of “strikes” it threatens. The North makes progress with each new nuclear test — it staged its fourth in January — but many experts say its arsenal may consist only of still-crude nuclear bombs; there’s uncertainty about whether they’ve mastered the miniaturization process needed to mount bombs on warheads and widespread doubt about whether they have a reliable long-range missile that could deliver such a bomb to the U.S. mainland.
As we’ve written before, no one should be surprised by this. The actions our own so-called leaders have encouraged this. Seeing how we bartered with Iran for our American citizens to be released, North Korea took an American college student hostage. And witnessing the consistent violations by Iran in ballistic missile firings — as Iran continues to receive a huge financial windfall from the “deal” — Kim Jong Un succinctly said, why not?
As Col. West noted:
There’s one thing about weakness, it is enticing to the strong – and especially to the bad guys. So if you’re a despot or dictator, and see what Iran just got away with, well, you’re probably figuring why not me too?
The message that needs to be sent to pudgy Lil’ Kim with the bad haircut is that your obtuse belligerence will not be tolerated.
But it’s another quote, attributed to Albert Einstein that is appropriate for these times: “The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”
The Obama administration has done a bang-up job of reminding us, in the starkest of terms, the importance of “peace through strength.” Even worse than doing nothing, President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry have rewarded bad behavior. Like after Iran captured 10 of our Navy Sailors, not only praising its treatment of them (despite images showing the sailors on their hands and knees and crying), but almost immediately lifting sanctions on the country.
Russia has called North Korea’s latest threat “totally unacceptable.” What have we heard from the Obama administration?
The time is now to put leadership back into the White House- a REAL leader. Not a person that falls back and leads from behind, THAT IS NOT THE AMERICAN WAY! The U.S. is a global leader herself, she cannot be ran by someone who refuses to make actual choices, or hides in the corner thinking if they shut their eyes long enough the big baddie will just go away…C’MON! History tells us that just having a strong leader’s presence alone, makes a huge difference on what our enemies think they can get away with. Has part of America already forgotten what happened the very day President Reagan took office? Just the announcement alone had Iran releasing American hostages…that is NO coincidence.
Just An American
