Obama warns North Korea of US military strength
nypost.com ^ | april 26, 2014

Posted on 04/26/2014 10:21:34 PM PDT by lowbridge

President Barack Obama said on Saturday the United States did not use its military might to “impose things” on others, but that it would use that might if necessary to defend South Korea from any attack by the reclusive North.

The North warned last month it would not rule out a “new form” of atomic test after the UN Security Council condemned Pyongyang’s launch of a mid-range ballistic missile into the sea east of the Korean peninsula.

Obama and South Korean President Park Geun-hye presented a united front against North Korea at a joint news conference following their summit on Friday, warning that they would respond firmly to any “provocations” by Pyongyang which routinely threatens the United States and South Korea with destruction.

“We don’t use our military might to impose these things on others, but we will not hesitate to use our military might to defend our allies and our way of life,” Obama told cheering US forces at the Yongsan garrison on a sunny spring morning.

When Obama talks tough it means he's getting ready to wimp out.

Uh, guy? Your entire administration has been predicated on open contempt for our "way of life" and a burning desire to change it. Now, if you'd said "We'll nuke you on behalf of all the oppressed gay people in Pyongyang" then I might believe you.

Isn’t amazing how many warnings zero has to give about America’s power since he has taken the residency? Maybe it’s because everybody knows what a weak irrelevant resident he is.

Weak and foolish Democrat presidents always wind up causing needless mayhem.

Despots everywhere rejoiced when Obama was re-elected.

They are safe from Obama’s retaliation as long as they don’t insult any muslims.

Okay, help me keep this straight.

So far we’re poking at Putin, pulling at N. Korea, rattling our saber at China. We have troops and assets in Afghanistan, who are sitting above Syria and Iran and to the west of a grudging friend and of course below and between China and Russia.

How is this supposed to end well for us?

Another “red line.” No wait, a blue one, no a purple one, no a green one, no a plastic one, no wait, a Turkish one, no a rainbow one, no a black one-—sorry, I finally crossed the line, a nonexistent one.

This is what scares me more about Zip, his ignorance. I know he’s a terrorist enemy of the U.S., but when he actually tries to be a Pres__dent, he pisses off our enemies also.

The president went on to say, “And if you like your way of life, you can keep your way of life. Of course we have a whole gotta work to do to, uh, improve things but let me be clear—make no mistake about it: I’m tired of having to explain and correct, um, these misunderstandings.
“If anyone criticizes me, we’re almost ready—I not only have my gayboi Army, I have my ‘Special Soldiers’ civilian bodyguard, so, hey—you’ve been a great crowd!”
And a large portion of the troops cheered, while some were heard to mutter, “Gay bois?!” Comrades! It was another glorious triumph for Comrade BB.

I’m sure South Korea heard, “If you like your freedom in the South, . . .” As for North Korea, they probably got the same message years ago.

Let me warn you! If you take any hostile action, we are going to slash our uniformed military's pay, slash their housing reimbursement, quadruple their annual healthcare fees and co-pays, force retirees out of the medical TRICARE system an onto ObamaCare, cut the cost of living for retirees again, decimate the current retirement system, fire thousands of active duty uniform and DoD civilians, junk the A-10, the KC-10, and two aircraft carriers! Don't bluff me! I am serious!!

The DMZ was the scariest place I ever saw.

I cannot believe war has not broken out there again. But we, by our weakness, are inviting it.

The North Koreans know we have the weakest President in 63 years.

If they are ever going to make a move, now might be their best chance.

You’d think the last thing the Chinese would want is war.....the impact of South Korea’s economy collapsing will hit China hard. Also China’s borders would be overrun.

China wants stability more than anything, which means keeping the status quo.

If anything, China would love to see North Korea go away, and behind the scenes they may very well support the South, if things should get out of hand. This isn’t 1950.

South Korea, I know you are armed to the teeth, and produce some of the finest fighting men, as we saw in Vietnam when you allied with us. Buy more weapons, because with Obama you are your own.
