Obama warns North Korea he will take 'all necessary steps' to defend the U.S.
Politico ^ | 4/11/13 | JENNIFER EPSTEIN |

Posted on 04/11/2013 6:36:18 PM PDT by Nachum

President Obama warned North Korea on Thursday that his administration will take "all necessary steps" to defend the United States from aggression and urged Pyongyang to tone down its threats.

"Now is the time for North Korea to end the kind of belligerent approach that they've been taking, and to try to lower temperatures," he said in the Oval Office, after a meeting with United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. "Nobody wants to see a conflict on the Korean Peninsula."

North Korea, he said, must "observe the basic rules and norms" set by the international community, including the UN. "We will continue to try to resolve some of those issues diplomatically, even as I indicated to the Secretary General, that the United States will take all necessary steps to protect its people and to meet our obligations under our alliances in the region.

Ban said he is "deeply concerned" by Kim Jong-un's latest threats, which are "not helpful."

What he really wanted to say: "Obama will take 'all necessary steps' to defend the United States from aggression...by confiscating all Constitutionally protected weapons from law-abiding US citizens."

I am convinced that a North Korean nuke exploding on US territory would be met with Obama running to the UN begging for help. Obama would never use US nukes in response and would at most send in a few cruise missiles and then seek a negotiated settlement.

Obama saying the U.S. will do everything necessary to defend the U.S. undermines South Korea and Japan. Those two countries depend on the U.S. nuclear umbrella. Without absolute assurance that the U.S. will also do everything necessary to defend them from a nuclear power, which North Korea is, they must consider nuking-up.

The same is true for Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Iraq. They also depend on the U.S. nuclear umbrella. Were we to go wobbly with respect to Iran, they too would have to consider nuking-up.

The truth is, a weak U.S. will result in dozens of countries having nuclear weapons and make probable the escalation of a regional conflict somewhere in the world, into a nuclear war.

America needs to man up.

Re-build our industry.

Stop exporting our factories. And re-industrialize.

The GOP needs to very prominently get in front of this, or it will cease to matter.

What are “all necessary steps?” Is our leaders’ plan to bore Kim Jong Un, until he sleeps on his stomach, then take advantage of him?

"Obama warns North Korea he will take 'all necessary steps' to defend the U.S."

Yea, right: Obama is a liar. EVERYTHING COMING OUT OF HIS MOUTH IS A LIE and little coke-head fat boy Kim knows it.

Obama has done more to destroy the country from within than anything little coke-head fat boy Kim could ever do. Obama is nothing but a paper tiger who will do NOTHING no matter what little coke-head fat boy Kim does. Oh I take that back, Obamessiah will read a strongly worded statement from one of his teleprompters reprimanding little coke-head fat boy Kim = bad little coke-head fat boy Kim, naughty little coke-head fat boy Kim. If you fire another missile we will be very, very angry with you and only give you $500 million dollars in food and fuel aid so that you can turn around and use it to feed your people so they can get big and strong so they can kill Americans and destroy America." ...that is the extent of Obamessiah’s threats.

“All necessary steps”
1. Play an extra round of golf.
2. Meet with Harry Reid and swap Nancy Pelosi jokes.
3. Go cruising for some “action” on N. Capitol Street.
4. Tell Joe Biden a Joe Biden joke and see if he gets it.

The fact that we are economically bankrupt is a further reason for the governments of other countries to consider what they must do to defend themselves.

Which steps; going to a bathhouse, or hiding under the bed-covers?

Obama has never confronted any totalitarian entity. The only military fatalities he is responsible for are those trying to protect our embassies.

The North Koreans must be shivering in their boots!

Is there some way he can blame this on Christians, Jews, white people, Republicans, or the rich? I mean, dividing, finger-pointing and golf are the three things he does best.

Okay, fine: he's a lousy golfer. Dividing and finger-pointing are the two things ...

Idiot wants a war. A real superpower leader would ignore the whole thing, not giving the Fat Boy what he craves: attention. Instead, the Obama is giving respect and crawling down to NK’s level.

Be ready to win that war in one hour flat, and otherwise deal with real issues.

Don’t think for a minute that Baby Kim is not seeing what we here at FR are seeing about Osambo.
He doesn’t owe him or his “Office of Presidency” any respect, for reasons of race, Affirmative Action or alleged education, having attended pretty good schools himself. I bet Kimmie knows the correct number of US states and what language is spoken in Austria. No illusions about Soetero are required for any reason outside the borders of this land.
