Kim Jong-Un is a pipsqueak sitting atop an expanding nuclear stockpile and an improving missile capability.
To consolidate his power and corresponding ability to brutalize his people, he his attempting to show his military that he can fling threats around as well as his father and grandfather. He also wants, in return for ceasing his threat to world peace, more food aid so that at least a portion of his population will survive. Sometimes people get killed when the North Koreans starting monkeying around like this, sometimes not.
If Obama allows Iran a similar capability, we will truly have a world in chaos. Obama said during his recent trip to Israel that it will be a year before Iran gets a nuke, though we don’t want to “cut it too close.”
Well, if Obama waits nearly a year, Iran may not have a nuclear weapon, but it may well have the capacity to quickly go nuclear if it wants. Obama continually fails to make the distinction between an actual nuke, which is what seems to concern him, and a nuclear capability, which is what properly worries Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu.
If Iran is even perceived as nuclear capable, it will begin harassing the world in ways Kim Jong Un can’t even dream of. The Saudis and several other Gulf Coast states will, quite rationally, begin developing nuclear programs “for peaceful purposes.”
The latest “negotiations” with Iran just ended without a single inch of progress, which is surprising only in that you would think Iran would want to throw Obama a bone while it continues its march toward nuclearization so that he’d continue to believe we can talk this out.
Mr. President, your duty is to defend the Constitution, not to enact an assault weapons ban, promote gay marriage, hand out free health care, or legalize immigrants who came here unlawfully.
You’re certainly welcome to do all those things, but your central task is to preserve and defend the country. If you or anyone else thinks Iran is just a mortal threat to Israel, you’re dreaming. For us, this should have nothing to do with Israel.
Iran with nuclear weapons is about a world on the path toward Armageddon, about proliferation of atom bombs that will one day be detonated in the United States. Make sure you get this one right. There will be a lot more of our children killed by the Mullahs than by Smith & Wessons.
