    Let’s dispense from the beginning with the idea that more “sternly-worded letters,” sanctions, condemnations, or talks (serious this time!) are the answer to North Korea’s dual declarations of war. They have never worked, because when dealing with evil, you must speak to it in the language it understands. Evil only understands violence.

    And yes, it’s time for violence.

    It gives me no pleasure to say so, but the pattern of history has borne out this truth: there will never be peace so long as only one side is willing to abide by the rules for peace.

    The pictures coming from Yeonpeyong, South Korea, are chillingly reminiscent of Pearl Harbor. But did we get the “a date which will live in infamy” speech, which Pres. Roosevelt delivered only 1 day after the December 7, 1941 attack?

    Nope.

    Here’s what we got from the Eunuch in Chief: “…too soon to discuss ways the U.S. military might deter the reclusive communist state from another strike.”

    And from his lapdog Stephen Bosworth: “I would not at all accept that our policy toward North Korea is a failure,” Bosworth said after flying to Seoul to meet South Korean officials. “They are a difficult interlocutor,” he said of the North, “but we’re not throwing our policy away.”

    While the North’s uranium program is disappointing and provocative, he told reporters, it isn’t surprising. “This is not a crisis.”

    The best lines are from PJ Crowley: “…the Obama administration would take its time to assess the available information. He said the revelation of the new uranium enrichment facility would violate Pyongyang’s obligation to stop pursuing nuclear weapons but also may be what he called a ‘publicity stunt.’”

    But my personal favorite came from State Department spokesman Mark Toner, who called North Korea’s actions “very, very bad.”

    I guess their answer is to send NoKo to bed without any supper. I did not know this level of denial existed outside of Egypt.

    But Obama has a point; I mean, if the sinking of a South Korean navy ship and the killing of 46 South Koreans in March wasn’t enough for us to consider violence against the violent, 200 artillery shells and a lousy 2 deaths certainly won’t qualify.

    The casualty count is about 50 now. Each provocation by the North is further escalated. Maybe it's time for South Korea to act like Austria in 1914.

    It's time to lance the boil.

    Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

    I'm not convinced he would choose the right side of any conflict.

    Clinton didn't bomb anything. Clinton relied on people in his administration, who relied on other lower-level people that gathered and examined intelligence from satellites that designated targets for strikes. The intelligence community believed told the factory had direct links to bin Laden and specifically was producing VX nerve gas. You can't not bomb that. Imagine if he didn't bomb it, what the uproar would be after 9/11?

    Now you can blame him if a lot of people in the intelligence community didn't get some sort of reprimand for being wrong, but I don't think we'd ever know what way or the other. Or at least, identifying why we got it wrong and making positive changes to the agencies in question to prevent it from happening again.

    So I'm not going to blame Obama if we bomb North Korean Aspirin Factories, but I am going to blame Obama if he makes bad choices at a high level.

    By the same argument Bush didn't bomb the Iraqi milk plant either .As for Obama making the wrong choice that in my estimation is a given !!He's hasn't the stomach, inclination or courage to defend America.

    To him and his kind America is too powerful and needs to be changed into a third world PC European Socialism like the UK and kiss Islams treacherous Asses.
