A day or so after North Korea carried out its third nuclear blast, the “Groundhog Day” shtick goes on in the form of lily-livered “condemnations” and dogged delusions that diplomacy and sanctions will surely work their magic after a decade of futility in both regards: http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/02/13/us-korea-north-sanctions-idUSBRE91C0C920130213
So just what is it going to take to wake up and smell the coffee and then grow a set to do something about it? It’s not just the Democrats who have been milquetoasts. During the Bush era, Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice saw fit to take the North Koreans off the list of terrorism sponsors in an effort to appease them into negotiations. Looks like that didn’t do diddly now that the commies have developed enough material for three to 14 nuclear bombs.
Those who want to sacrifice our security by voting in wimps who don’t mind being doormats for the Axis of Evil in the name of temporal peace and to save on war costs are going to regret that we didn’t take tougher action earlier on. As a result, they can expect the costs to be much more severe and the economy to be the least of our problems when these rogue nations decide to play David to our Goliath.
Imagine that, our enemies getting what it means not to be messed with.
