They're punks, Obammie you Commie.

You don't need to “stand up” to punks.

You cold-cock them and you're done with it.

Too bad you have ZERO experience dealing with foreign nations, because the world suffers with your amateur-hour performance.

This is what happens when the race for the US Presidency becomes nothing more than an American Idol competition for politics.

..."stand up to"...

Geez! They're really smiling in Pyongyang now! 0bama should stay on the golf course and keep his mouth shut. HE may think North Korea is some huge power that it will take the entire world to deal with, but he's an idiot.

LOL! How rich...apparently not up on current events. The only places with enough nut to stand up to NK are places that kinda agree with their sentiments and methods.

The First Thug fits the very definition of an insanity; he keeps repeating the same thing expecting a different result: running around saying "the World must do this" or "the World must do that".

Guess what, First Dumbass: you ran around a few months ago, begging "the World" to take Gitmo prisoners and every country told you to pound sand.

Are you really that stupid to believe that they're going to "stand up"? Wait...don't answer that question.

It’s us or nothing.

Obama lacks the courage.

Believe it or not dipstick, its been tried before. Long before the ONE there were other Presidents who tried to straighten out N. Korea. They arent interested Bammy.

Oh!! They dont mind us bearing the brunt of every dirty job in the world while they sit and criticise, but they arent going to stick their necks out.

Did the thought ever cross your mind O exalted one that others have tried the pansy route long before you and it did work out.?

And if this doesn't work, Obama will open up a can of community organizer whoopass on Dear Leader - probably calling for a trade boycott against all North Korean goods, or at a minimum, saying some really bad things about him.

I'm sure Dear Leader is shaking in his boots.

Hans Blix...bah. Notice we haven't heard a peep out of him or Joe Wilson in years. Maybe it's because we quietly sent tons of yellowcake from Iraq to Canada for processing, years ago.

When you search "Iraq yellowcake Canada", you only get 68,000 hits.

It's perplexing that Dubya wouldn't defend himself more when he had every right to do so.

Obama needs to understand that this guy is an atheist and does not believe in answering to a higher power.

His value on human life extends out about as far as his own finger tip....that's it.

If pushed, he would kill thousands without blinking an eye.

Kim Jong Ill has proven time and time again he cannot be trusted, he will break treaties at a whim and make promises he never intends to keep.

Shake his hand with your right hand and pop a cap in him with the other.

Sounds harsh, but this guys lookin like he’z not in very good health and who knows, he might try to make a name for himself as he’z about to exit the earth.

Imagine: This was not a nuclear test, instead, it was a demonstration.... for a customer.

The CIA may not know. Besides, according to Pelosi, the dems and tacitly agreed to by Obama, the CIA lies to our government, so they can’t be trusted.

Farfetched I suppose, but seeing our country gutted from within and trillions of dollars of debt, seemed farfetched not all that long ago.

Maybe Zero will get the Europeans to join us in condemning Kim!!! Yeah right! just like they stepped up and took some of the Gitmo prisoners off our hands and just like they'll stand up when Iran starts launching nukes. Yup that dialog thing is working real well. Obozo made it sound soooo easy on the campaign trail. It aint so simple now is it Zero!!!!! In case you haven't noticed, the world (especially the Europeans) will criticize the US for any action we take but don't ask them for help, they still want America to do all the heavy lifting.

Funny, I seem to remember something remarkably similiar being said right after they flew a missle half way to Hawaii.
