Lieberman: How Will The World Stop Iran If It Can't Stop North Korea
Haaretz ^ | November 23, 2010

Posted on 11/23/2010 8:14:52 AM PST by Strategy

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman slammed the world's response to North Korea firing on their southern neighbor on Tuesday, asking how the world will be able to stop Iran if they can't stop North Korea.

North Korea fired hundreds of artillery shells at a South Korean island on Tuesday, in one of the heaviest bombardments on the South since the Korean War ended in 1953. South Korea responded by firing 80 rounds of shells back at the North.

Dictators get real change from the time of George Bush - Obama gives them a free pass - more than they ever hoped for...

North Korea
Iran

Our economy is shaky
And we owe China about a trillion dollars.

We are like a cartoon character, leaning out over a cliff, waving our arms, trying not to fall off the edge. All it takes is someone who doesn't like us to give a little shove. We have nothing in the way of Will or Reserves. We're tapped out and just barely holding on. If someone wants to bring down America, all they have to do is ... push.

I’ve long wondered why the world’s tinpot dictators and petty megalomaniacs and would-be revolutionaries don’t all coordinate their goals. They can’t pull off their shenanigans on their own because world powers would intervene fast ...but if they all did their stuff on the same day, there would be no coherent opposition.

They don't play well with others. That's why they are dicators/megalomaniacs/and would-be revolutionaries in the first place. They aren't the least bit interested in COORDINATION. Coordination implies subjection, in their view. COOPERATION implies weakness.

“Obama is not going to do anything period”

I am sure he feels North Korea has been the victim of the West's persecution for years. In his mind, North Korea is a workers paradise where people have rosy cheeks and smile all time while singing praises to their benevolent god-like leaders.

A good way to bring stability to the world would be to make a deal with the Chinese and the Russian to hold a joint tactical nuclear strike to wipe the North Korean nuclear facilities and most of their military and all of their leadership off the face of the earth and then tell Achmad<>inejad that if he does not dismantle his nuclear program by Friday, the coalition will do it for him in the same manner that they stopped North Korea and then one minute after midnight on Friday, November 26, 2010 put the Iranians out of the nuclear weapons business.

How will 0bama stop Iran if he can't stop North Korea?


Ha! I dare 0bama to do something. Maybe he'll send me a strong letter.


Reset! Reset! Bow! Bow! See, the world loves me!

Our plans are working perfectly. Comrade 0bama is a real tool for sure!

I love the smell of weakness in the morning.

How about stopping the U.N. from being the U.N.? From their very beginning onwards, they continue to be one of the most incompetent “entities” in the entire world, and, very sadly, they are not alone!

I’ve said before I knew this would all come crashing down one day but I didn’t think I’d live to see it.

Megyn Kelly on FOX is talking about just how bad it’s going to be the next few years while the muslim is in Indiana touting his stimulus spending. A guy on FOX say we’ve printed $600 billion and we’re going to print another $600 billion and another $600 billion after that. How can anyone not see this is intentional.

Didn’t job biden make the statement that our young president would be tested and that we would not like the reaction/results? Paraphrasing here, but slo jo told us to gird our loins and be patient.
The bad guys have figured out that obama will be too focused on destroying this country to be bothered with what they do. Real national security matters don’t matter to the obama team or to the democrat party. They are loyal to their party first and foremost. Not to this country.

The the "World" did commit to "stopping" and bombing Christians in Serbia and Bosnia - for the sake of Muslims of course.

Quite frankly, NEITHER Bubba Clinton or George W, Bush did anything to curtail N. Korea's nuclear ambitions, but rather encouraged it.

Bubba tried bribing NK back in 1994 with free nuke capabilities, oil, and other goodies, while George Bush never enforced nor punished NK for breaking the original letter of the agreement. This is called "Appeasement."

This tin-horn "Axil of Evil" has kept on getting away with bloody murder ever since 1994. WHY??

North Korea is protected by China. Iran lacks a boarder with the PRC. It is protected by threats of terrorism and our cowardice.
