The North Korean army on Thursday threatened a possible strike against US military bases in Japan, in response to the use of nuclear-armed US B-52 bombers in joint military drills with South Korea.

The threat came a day after Pyongyang condemned the B-52 flights as an "unpardonable provocation" and threatened military action if they continue.

What do they have to do before Barry responds in ANY way whatsoever? Jerry Ford came **this** close to wiping them out after they killed two soldiers in the JSA.

Maybe a US General will go rogue. Too much to wish for I suppose. One way or the other, South K is going to get hit. And Japan too if this keeps up. And Barry will blame Bush.

You’ve gotta admit, this is all very strange... A president who actively hates the US, despises everything it stands for, doing things the looney NORKs say are provocative? Clinton would’ve folded, as he actually once did, vis-a-vis NKorea. But this president presses ahead with the exercises? What’s going on? Do the hawks (God bless their patriotic souls!) at the Pentagon have something on the Drone King?

Of course they do. There is no way on earth the CIA does not have his whole history. Same for every high level pol. The question is why don’t more people realize that and question why they let it get this far.

Movie Spoiler Alert

In upcoming Olympus Fallen, the acting President, played by Morgan Freeman, pulled U.S. troops out of South Korea so the NORKs could take over.

If North Korea was serious about injuring the United States it would probably follow Mexico’s example.

There is a reason we did everything in our power to pussify Japan after the war. Most Americans look at Japanese culture and see workaholics, giant robot cartoons and insane fashion trends.

I maintain that we did not breed out 1000+ years of Samurai tradition in one or two generations. Do NOT get them angry. They do really bad things when they are angry. It took the world years and nuclear weapons to stop them last time.

And now there are a hell of a lot more of them. than there was in WW2. And I absolutely do not buy all the anti nuke bluster they put out for global consumption. Their technology is WAY beyond ours in many areas now. And I doubt we know the half of it.

Pournelle had a great comment on the situation recently:

Sometimes I remember the strangest things. More than fifty years ago there was a Western radio drama, Gunsmoke, starring William Conrad as Matt Dillon and Parley Bear as Chester. In one of the episodes a young would-be gunfighter came to town. He announced that he was going to kill Matt Dillon in a fair fight so as to gain his reputation and make a lot of money hiring out in a range war. Dillon didn’t take him seriously, but the kid kept insisting, and finally as Dillon was coming out of the Longbranch he shouted some threat. There was gunfire. Dillon said “Sorry kid, this time I believed you.”

I think that such a result might come to pass with NK some day as well.

The above from here.

Except for a a break of a couple of years in order for Clinton to foolishly appease the Norks, since 1976 these exercises have been going on under different names and the Norks have always sabre rattled against them. One again the time to worry is if the Norks suddenly stop whining about them.

Unfortunately, the little bugger has a scorpion’s tail, and lot of people could be killed. If he did light off a nuclear firecracker outside his own country, no doubt he would die.

There is a long history of CIA/Foreign Service/State Dept. people “Going Native”. And when people ‘Gone Native” move up the latter, bad things follow. Because they then function as an agent serving the aims of their ‘new’ country. Not their real one.

I would point out one such just promoted to a high office in this admin.
