As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Don’t Cut it Too Close, Mr. President

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.

Mahmoud AhmadinejadIf 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.

  1. The appointment of Kerry to SoS was a masterstroke! Kim LOVES his french fries. What goes great with french fries? KETCHUP! Who better to deal with Kim than Theresa Heinz’s husband? A Ketchup Summit will straighten all this out pronto!!

    (God Help us)

    He’s a narcissist. He interprets his duty as one that will make him more glorified in his own mind, and in the minds of his acolytes.

  3. What would we have our own “pipsqueak” President do to ease the tensions? The NoKos, along with the rest of our enemies, see a weak, party-loving President interested only in domestic affairs.

    All of our hope for protection will come from the military.

  4. I know how to handle the North Korea situation – why don’t I go golfing the weekend before missiles are to be launched, and how about the night before they are to be launched, how about we have a concert with some of my favorite celebrities?

  5. What’s going to happen is the administration will cave to the demands of the Norks. This is a prefect situations for people who really, really want to see the US in full decline. If you want to know when a great power is getting ready to end its time, merely look to see when it begins to pay off smaller, less powerful nations to keep them quiet.

      How many billions in taqiyya did we give to the Muslim Brotherhood regime in Egypt recently?

    • Here’s a thought – since so many people (lefties, mostly) are up in arms about genetically-modified foods, let’s send a bunch of GMO food to the Norks for food aid. If the food is as dangerous as the anti-GMOs think it is, this would be a way to find out. If it’s perfectly safe, then the Norks will be able to eat for awhile.

  6. Perhaps the solution is to give every single one of these countries a dozen small nukes or so. Matters would sort themselves out in a couple weeks or so…

    • Except that most of those would get snuck across the US-Mexico border, and then God help us.

      The solution to the current problem should be 550 kilotons on Pyongyang, today.

  7. The Blue Angels have been grounded for the rest of the year.
    Also, 1/3 of Air Force aircraft have been grounded due to the sequester.
    That came from Langley AFB, VA.
    F-16s, F-15s, A-10s, B-1s.F-22s.
    I say we ground AF1, and stop the parties in the White House.
    I just heard this on the radio, FOX News, so if it is wrong, don’t blame me.

    • Wonder if Jimmy Carter’s grandson was in Kentucky on that day in February when McConnell’s conversation was bugged? He did the same kind of dirty work for that leftist rag “Mother Jones” with the Romney 47% video.

      • I don’t know if Romney had the same expectation of privacy that McConnell did in his office.

        I wonder if Mother Jones is liable for publishing something that was obtained illegally.

  8. A couple of passing thoughts/facts (none of them pleasant). Am I the only one that is connecting the dots?

    Obama gets Netanyahu to apologize to Turkey.

    Obama elevates via Kerry to elevate Turkey’s position in negotiations with the Palestinians.

    Turkey wants to be a member of the EU.

    Israel is not a member of the EU and works under a separate trade agreement.

    Turkey exported almost $120 million worth of gold to Iran in February.

    Turkey wants $1 million in compensation for each of the dead thugs who attacked IDF soldiers.

      I hadn’t heard that one. Isn’t it against those mean and tough sanctions on Iran?
