Methinks that osama is irrelevant in this situation. IOW, he already blinked.
Blinked?! Hell he's hiding his face behind his hands like a teenage girl at a horror movie.
You nailed it. It disgusts me that the obamanation has probably given orders that will prevent our troops from aggressively defending even themselves.
The real players right now are North Korea, South Korea, China, and Japan.
If/when we see Japan move to a war footing, then it’s on.
China is the wildcard. They don’t want a war, but they can’t be seen as weak against South Korea and Japan. (If the US had real leadership, they could take cover under the threat of effective US action, but we don’t so they can’t.)
China’s only out is a covert pre-emptive decapitation of the Nork leadership, which they will then blams on someone else. But only diplomatically.
Kim Jong Ill knows this, hence the deployment of Nork troops and missiles on the border with China.
This is going to get bad.
I think the Chinese aren’t even taking Obama into account.
