Kim Jong Il has evidently threatened massive retaliation against the United States if we intercept his peaceful satellite launch in flight. No, really:
"We will retaliate (over) any act of intercepting our satellite for peaceful purposes with prompt counterstrikes by the most powerful military means," the official Korean Central News Agency quoted a spokesman of the General Staff of the Korean People's Army as saying.
If countries such as the United States, Japan or South Korea try to intercept the launch, the North Korean military will carry out "a just retaliatory strike operation not only against all the interceptor means involved but against the strongholds" of the countries, it said.
Wait, I don't get it. What exactly is North Korea going to do again?
The North's armed forces have been ordered to "deal merciless retaliatory blows" should there be any intrusion "into the sky and land and seas of the DPRK even an inch."
Or to put it another way:
Monday's warning -- the latest barrage of threats from the communist regime -- came as U.S. and South Korean troops kicked off annual war games across the South, exercises the North has condemned as preparation for an invasion. Pyongyang last week threatened South Korean passenger planes flying near its airspace during the drills.
Analysts say the regime is trying to grab President Barack Obama's attention as his administration formulates its North Korea policy.
You see, after Obama's al-Arabiya apology for America's relentless and unprovoked insulting and offending Moslems for the past thirty years, and his kow-towing to Russia and China, he turns right around and tries to stand up, in a minor way, against the demented scion of the House of Kim. Outrageous!
Obama's special envoy on North Korea again urged Pyongyang not to fire a missile, which he said would be an "extremely ill-advised" move.
"Whether they describe it as a satellite launch or something else makes no difference" since both would violate a U.N. Security Council resolution banning the North from ballistic activity, Stephen Bosworth told reporters after talks with his South Korean counterpart.
But how exactly is North Korea going to "deal merciless retaliatory blows" against our strongholds... will they hire moonlighting Saudi and Egyptian terrorists to do it for them?
What an absurd ultimatum. Only a somewhat dim, inexperienced, overwhelmed naif who is so focused on domestic issues he has neither the time nor the stomach for a foreign-affairs fight, and who is afraid even to face down the top members of his party in Congress, government-employee unions, or the fierce and righteous anger of gas-guzzling global-warmingistas and embryo-hating feminists, could possibly be cowed by such a ludicrous threat.

I'll bet you a pot of sticky rice and a bottle of Sake that Japan goes nuclear, that is makes atomic bombs for its defense, within the next year.

And South Korea maybe the following year.
NK can cause mischief. They could launch missiles at military bases in Korea and Japan, and might even be able to hit something in Hawaii or Alaska. Hawaii would have a lot of psychological importance to NK, being Barry's childhood home.
If they do, will Barry go nuclear?
Weakness always provokes aggression.

Actually I think Clinton currently has the record in cabinet goof ups. But Obama is working to be better than every previous administrations in every way...
Heck, his VP pick alone should have warned us regarding his lack of judgement.
Is it just me, or is Obama, for lack of a better term, a dude? As in Fast Times at Ridgemont High "Duuuude"? Not too engaged, wants others to do the heavy lifting while he just kicks back and enjoys, overly trusting, dependent on being cool to get him through any situation?
