Obama Caves to Puny Little North Korea Dictator

by Keith Koffler on April 12, 2013, 6:36 pm

“Kerry warns North Korea.” That’s what all the headlines are saying.

Really? Here’s Kerry’s warning:

If Kim Jong-un decides to launch a missile, whether it is across the Sea of Japan or some other direction, he will be choosing willfully to ignore the entire international community.

I would say ahead of time that it is a huge mistake for him to choose to do that because it will further isolate his country and further isolate his people, who frankly are desperate for food, not missile launches.

IGNORE THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY? And then what will happen? The same thing that happens to anyone who ignores the international community. Nothing.

Here’s another joke for you, because I know you’re already laughing, since the Kerry thing is such a good one. It’s from a former president talking about another puny troublemaker.

At least the Wall Street Journal had it right, though without conveying the ignominy of it all. Here’s how they led their story:

South Korea and the U.S. both offered to return to negotiations with North Korea, aiming talks at Pyongyang’s nuclear program and broader security threats in a bid to reduce tensions on the Korean peninsula that American officials said run the risk of a direct military conflict.

Senior South Korean officials who met with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in Seoul Friday, said their government also was willing to resume sending humanitarian assistance to the North following weeks of escalating threats by North Korean leader Kim Jong Eun to attack U.S. and allied targets in North Asia and the Pacific.

See what’s going on here? A North Korean dictator starts threatening to blow everything up within range of his Diaperdong-2 missiles, and the West starts peeing in its pants, and gives him the aid and negotiations and respect he wants.

Happens every few years. We keep caving, so they keep doing it. One day someone will make a mistake during one of these episodes and set off a nuclear war. But it’s certainly not going to be Obama who abandons the ritual appeasement every president since Clinton has performed.

I assume Iran is taking note of our “warnings.”

On the world stage Barackn Obama plays the fool or in olden times the village idiot.

Rod April 12, 2013 at 7:11 pm

This is what you get when ol’ jell-o spine & marshmallow stones are on the case – capitulation. The sad thing is that this is no real surprise. It’s the liberal view of America taking hold – domestic entitlements and foreign weakness.

gracepmc April 12, 2013 at 7:27 pm

Maybe Joe Biden should talk with the Norks.

pianogirl88 April 12, 2013 at 7:30 pm

Every time Kerry said the word “Korea”, he pronounced it Korear!

Papajonl April 12, 2013 at 7:52 pm

Obama is still under his bed and won’t come out he knows “Say it Isn’t so Joe” shows up with his double barrel shotgun. Embarrassing how this administration has brought down our standing in the world. After N. Korea and Iran there is no one left who respects us.

AFVet April 13, 2013 at 10:51 am

That was Obama’s intent in the first place.

gracepmc April 12, 2013 at 7:55 pm

Maybe the UN can help. US spending to that cesspool scheduled to increase.

Keith Koffler April 12, 2013 at 9:23 pm

Thanks for letting us know. Unbelievable.

gracepmc April 12, 2013 at 11:35 pm

Suspension of disbelief. The only way to go.

Lizzy April 13, 2013 at 10:20 am

That’s all Obama knows what to do. Got a problem throw
money at it especially to people who wish to blow us to kingdom come! Oh and we haven’t got any money.

Red in a Blue State April 12, 2013 at 9:33 pm

Jay Severin has it right. We should notify the NoKo that we accept them at their word and will be sending over a pre-emptive nuclear strike before they have a chance to.

frootofaloom April 12, 2013 at 9:55 pm

it isn’t north Korea we are afraid of its china their ally if we attack north Korea we basically jump start world war 3 and economically destroy ourselves china does not want the united states on its border and will put up with anything north korea does to keep it that way we have no real choice other than to either pacify them or wait for an attack

Another headline:

North Korea reportedly warned Japan that Tokyo would be the first target if Pyongyang decides to play its nuclear card.

The warning reportedly is in response to Tokyo’s standing orders to destroy any missile heading toward Japan, according to Korean Central News Agency. Japan has deployed PAC-3 missile interceptor units around Tokyo to protect its capital and is taking North Korea’s rhetoric seriously.

“We are doing all we can to protect the safety of our nation,” chief Cabinet spokesman Yoshihide Suga said, though he and Ministry of Defense officials refused to confirm the reports about the naval alert, saying they do not want to “show their cards” to North Korea.

Well, that’s not a headline.

I suspect all kinds of maneuverings are taking place.

The other day, my 12-year-old son and I were talking about this. situation. (He wants to know all about nukes and tactical-nukes and the like for one of his Xbox games, so I try to oblige with facts. *sigh*)

He immediately latched on to the Chinese, and their aggressive actions toward Japan.

China suddenly gets ownership of those islands?

Not Nabob Knothead April 12, 2013 at 11:21 pm

Maybe our dear leader should take up the game in Ping Pong. Surely the Chinese and North Koreans would welcome the chance to beat the crap out of the MostArrogantOne in a friendly game.

Not Nabob the Knothead April 12, 2013 at 11:58 pm

Does our Dear leader even know where the Korean Penisula is?

MaconMan April 13, 2013 at 1:44 am

To settle the situation, our Dear Leader and their Dear Leader should have a cat fight. Meow…. watch those claws, you he man, you.

My neighbor is mad at me, threatened to burn down my house. He starts lining up red gasoline cans along our property lines.

So, what will I do as a red-blooded American? Should I send over a pan of brownies as a peace offering, or do I kick over the red gasoline cans and set them afire?

Car in April 13, 2013 at 8:51 am

Srdem, just so you know, your neighbor views your setting up a watering hose for defense as an aggressive posture.

srdem65 April 13, 2013 at 10:23 am

Don’t need a hose if the threat is neutralized.

It’s early. I thought this was going to be the quote of the day….but the story kept going. Props to Keith on breaking the news regarding the new nork missile tech: Diaperdong-2. When western engineers first proposed this technology, everyone said they were full of …oh never mind.

Star April 13, 2013 at 10:42 am

I agree that Kerry’s saying “ooo, ooo, do anything and you’ll get it” was weak, but some of you got out of the hawk side of the bed today…I am worried—we are counting on common sense, selt-preservation and logic and those seem to be lacking in this world today.

Junius April 13, 2013 at 11:14 am

Wow! I didn’t think it was possible to have a worse secretary of state than Pantload Hillary Clinton but once again I have been proven wrong. Kerry is a village idiot and a coward to boot.

mandy manners April 13, 2013 at 11:23 am

Don’t blame Kerry for all of it. He’s carrying out his boss’s wishes.

Junius April 13, 2013 at 12:17 pm

Right he’s just carrying out orders! Now where have I heard that excuse before?

mandy manners April 13, 2013 at 12:25 pm

Kerry’s implementing FCMABBHO’s policy.

Lizzy April 13, 2013 at 1:34 pm

Maybe he offered a bulk discount on all Heinz products?

Ketchup on minced meat and bread?

gracepmc April 13, 2013 at 12:00 pm

Well, since we are stuck on Nork might as well have some “fun”. This link is to an article from the UK MailOnline And for those of you who might disparage the MailOnline research source check this out –don’t know anything about these guys but they have basic data and a decent blogroll.

Because I used to do it for a living, I think it’s fun to try and find Waldo — is the aunt really the Korean Valerie Jarrett?

mandy manners April 13, 2013 at 12:37 pm

She also owns the only burger restaurant in Pyongyang, where the menu offers ‘minced meat and bread’ rather than using the American word ‘burger’.

I don’t know why, but the above sentence made me laugh.

gracepmc April 13, 2013 at 12:50 pm

Yep, even in North Korea the rich and privileged get their due.

Perhaps because you suspect the “minced meat” is really the local street dog? :)
