A couple years back, I wrote i dah bomb, little dudes and their hair – admittedly making fun of the whacked out despot (of North Korea) who had some serious hair problems. Happily at that time there was at least an attempt at bitch slapping the crazy, little nutjob. This time, not so much.
WSJ article: Korean Blast Draws Outrage gives the details as we know them today. I’m happy to say that our new Prez is still into the jive talking routine and we can all rest assured that talking the talk is bama’s forte so of course it will work. The fact that lilKim doesn’t have any interest in talking and will run as many nuke tests as possible in order to play with the ‘big kids’ (Iran, Pakistan & India) seems not to have phased the new administration in the least. And Hilary and bama both intend to talk to the Russians and the Chinese (always big fans and allies of ours, don’t you know) in order to get them to talk some sense into lilKim.
To quote the article:
Recent diplomatic overtures by the Obama administration to Pyongyang have failed to entice or subdue the regime. China is in the best position to influence North Korea. A State Department spokesman said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was scheduled to talk Monday with foreign ministers from China and Russia, and a senior administration official said Mr. Obama would speak with his Chinese and Russian counterparts this week.
Naturally, there are the usual rumblings about sanctions and harsh words directed at the little shit but something tells me that by the time anybody gets around to doing any of that we may have a whole new Grand Canyon, where we least expect it.
I’m wondering if anybody in the West Wing is starting to get nervous yet. If not, they should – talk may work on the campaign trail – however, I don’t think they allow teleprompters in No-Kor and I’m thinking a “Just Say No to Nukes” campaign just isn’t going to solve the problem. It’s too bad that there are no more cowboys on the Hill because I have a feeling we’re going to need a few in the not too distant future.
