I have combed the internet for articles indicating the same level of alarm regarding NORK as I suffer. It’s been difficult. Most conservative, and even some liberal sites, were understandably pre-occupied with the protests against the evil regime in Iran. The eclipsing of major news events, such as the wholesale slaughter of Iranian protesters, by the coverage of lurid details surrounding the life and death of Michael Jackson — ad nauseum, has proven that “we now live in a tabloid culture”. Credit for that insights goes to Dr. Eugene Narrett, who recently spoke on the Tamar Yonah Show, The Distraction Machine.
I have had the unshakable conviction that the North Korean dictator is at least as much of a threat as the Iranian dictators who are now imprisoning (even from hospital beds) beating, raping and executing the precious souls who demonstrated against them. At least as much. Iran could take care of the eastern seaboard, North Korea could wipe out the western seaboard, and then some. Is this not a concern??
I have a question for Barack Obama. Have the Iranians and Kim Jong-il worked out some sort of secret code they’re going to send him if the time comes and they decide to send a missile whistling our way? Because you, Mr. Obama, appear to be very relaxed about all this, like nothing important is really happening.
Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs fame has written a piece, published at her site and at The American Thinker. Included here are a few poignant excerpts:
North Korea’s March to War by Pamela Geller“North Korea has been busy, busy, busy since the election of our weak President. This week, they have sharply increased their war rhetoric. On Wednesday they issued this threat: ‘If the U.S. imperialists start another war, the army and people of Korea will … wipe out the aggressors on the globe once and for all.’ And on Thursday they promised a ‘fire shower of nuclear retaliation’ if the U.S. attacked them. The media is pretending that it isn’t happening, whistling in the dark, but how can anyone avoid noticing that since Obama’s failed policies have been introduced, the evil forces of the world have been unleashed?
“The Pentagon snickered at the North Koreans’ latest threats. Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell, when asked about the North Korean threat to wipe the U.S. off the map, sniffed: ‘I don’t even know how to respond to that. It’s silliness. For what and with what?’”
“However, I do not find these threats to be a bit funny. They bode ill, most ill, for the US’s preventative effect on the malevolent advancement of the axis of evil.”
“It’s hard to know how desperately we will ultimately suffer under this terrible presidency but one thing is painfully clear: the world’s policeman has walked off the job.”
And here is Pamela’s latest on the alarming pace of North Korea’s belligerency — North Korea Test Fires Four Missiles in Four Hours. Why are more people not worked up about this??
It’s not a relief to know we are indeed under as much of a threat as I thought. But, it is a relief to know someone else sees it.
