There are still a few around who think if this got ugly with NK and Communist China, this would be like a Saddam Iraq thing...

Not quite.

Obama has already groveled before everyone, perhaps he should prostrate himself at the feet of their midget dictator?

A number of cities declared themselves nuke free zones several years ago.

Not sure if Stockton CA if one, but it wouldn’t surprise me.

I’m glad they are racheting it down a notch. What they should be doing is backdoor calling the ChiComs and telling them to put their junkyard dog on a chain.

I'm sure you didn't mean to suggest that Obama do a "backdoor call" on the Chinese like he's been doing to US for years, right? LOL, JK. The problem is that relations between China and NK is also deteriorating quickly and they may not have quite so much influence. There seems to be some indication from open source intell that suggests that Lil' Kim is losing control of the military and may in fact be in a power struggle with some generals. I don't know if that's a good thing or not. Commie general officers tend towards meglomaniaical behavior when it comes to playing with their toys.

I have no respect for most politicians of either Party. They both want their palms greased, re-elected, and their cronies and sponsors made wealthy, and it is always on the backs of taxpayers and often our US military too. Show me a candidate that makes We the American Citizens his primary concern and the USA as his primary focus, and I’ll vote for him.

We’re creating a national culture of dependency using political expediency, and wealthy / political elitist crooks and thieves.

Yep...that and how to best utilize the "optics" for this.

They should just blame it on the sequester, while they're at it.

I don't know where you're getting this, but are you suggesting if things got ugly between us and NK that Communist China would not back and support NK?

Only a fool would believe if push ever came to shove, that Communist China would not support NK...In fact Red China would probably take or attempt to take Taiwan during any conflict in that region...

Anyone trusting Communist China for even one second, is a fool..

I watched the pretty terrible remake of Red Dawn yesterday. At first glance one would tend to laugh at the film having NKorea as the invading force that takes over much of America. After reading this and knowing the utter spineless pansies we have in the White House, I don’t find the movie so far-fetched anymore.

Not sure if it was the original red dawn but back in the 1980s I was watching a promo on PBS of a movie where in a class room an older lady replaced the school teacher during class. The younger teacher left with a concerned look on her face.

The children asked the new teacher, “are we going to say our morning prayers as we always do before class?”

The new teacher explained to the class that prayers are useless and to prove it to them she told the kids to pray for a bike (or something like that) to appear in class. “Go on, pray for a bike” she told them.

After the praying the kids raised their heads from the desk and the teacher said “See? No bike. No God”.

Then as the class continued red parachutes, thousands of troops landing on the land outside the classroom window.

Was that Red Dawn? If not, do you know which movie that may have been?

There is no mystery to Obama’s actions. He is merely taking orders from Putin who told him to back off the rhetoric. Russia is the driving force here and I am pretty sure anything that Obama does in regards to foreign policy is directed by Russia and Putin.

This is what the reset button was all about. Obama is a commie. I could list all the reasons I believe this, such as the release of the Russian spies to the whispering into the ear of Medvedev.

The bottom line here is...internationally, Obama is known as very weak. As an American, I will say he is an incompetent fool. He will destroy the USA and it is only a matter of time until the final curtain drops.
