This isn’t getting the coverage it deserves. But North Korea is really puffing their chest out at the world these days. Not only are they testing missles and nuclear weapons like someone test driving a car around tax time, they pick up two innocent journalist and play chicken with the United States.
What should not be lost in all of this, and what the media should pick up on is the position that George Bush, Dick Cheney and their followers have put us in with the war in Iraq specifically as well as Afghanistan to a lesser degree. We put Saddam in the ground alright, though now Cheney admitted recently what we already knew which was that he was simply one of many dictators who had no link to 9-11. But the bottom like is that Kim Jong Il knows full and well that our military as great as it’s been, is tremendously overextended. Our “war on terror” does not have a definite end, and we are caught up trying to stay alive in the desert sands of underdeveloped third world nations.
With all of that said to borrow an old school phrase, North Korea is smelling their piss and showing their ass daring anyone to say anything to them.
As it stands these brigdge to nowhere wars have put us in a vulnerable position. Make no mistake about it. North Korea is for real.
And while Americans are caught up in the rhetoric of a Rush Limbaugh and these racial politics, the real dangers are lurking half a world away in full time speed.
Keep on defending yourself and your legacy Dick.
Hannity, Dobbs, keep on attacking the current president over stupid stuff. The future for our children and grandchildren looks great!
