Sweet Nothings Failing

>> Tuesday, May 26, 2009

As this posting at AmericanThinker's blog points out, it isn't looking much like there's a whole lot of swooning on the part of the dangerous nations of the world. Iran and N. Korea don't seem to be either enthralled or intimidated by the thought of an Obama led United States of America. As he made it abundantly clear during his recent "Everything is Our Fault" Tour, we are but chumps to be ignored, a nation of no consequence, a bloviator who is all talk and no action.

I've often referred to Obama as a pretender. He's pretending he has a better way and so far, his make-believe has done pretty much nothing on any front. This front is the most dangerous for all. The notion that he's just going to chit-chat his way to a world of peace, after insisting he'll disarm, after insisting that he'll close Gitmo, after insisting that we'll never "torture", has led to results pretty much predicted by the right wing.

Now, to be fair, Barry hasn't been play-acting for very long. It's only been four months, so it would be ridiculous to imagine that the two remaining nations of the Axis of Evil just got started with their respective programs. But as the linked piece points out, it's pretty bold the manner in which they showed their stuff. They each are engaging in int'l "Whaddaya gonna do about it?". We know the answer to that question. Barry will do nothing of any impact.

Imagine. Some people think we are safer now that Barry is in the House.

wait!!! Obama said the UN will take care of this. So I guess its as good as done.

I just cant imagine why Bush had no confidence in the UN

"...the two remaining nations of the Axis of Evil"huh?

Haven't you heard? Barry thinks we're no.1 on that list. Everything is our fault and only He can fix it. And even at that, He won't do anything without the UN's permission. He is not the most powerful man in the world, He is a vassal to the ineffectual and impotent UN.

All right Mr. Smartalek, "What should we do?"

What sticks and punitive measures can we bring to bear on North Korea?

Remember that NK has about 5,000 missiles aimed at Seol and it'd probably be better if they didn't launch. And what perfect prescription do you have for getting China to go along with our actions? Hmmm? Maybe something like the UN Security Council?

China is just about North Korea's only trading partner, any sanctions they would have to agree to. China also has a very porous border with North Korea. So their feathers will also need stroking about the prospect of tens of thousands of prospective North Korean refugees from any sanctions or military actions.

If you have any rational, serious thoughts on the issue, now would be the time and here would be the place to contribute.

BenT that’s the obvious “fairy tale” answer. Problem is china has 1.3 billion people and a GDP of 3.4 Trillion. That means they have 400% more people than we do on a GDP that is 25% of ours. China will not impose sanctions on NK because they can’t afford to.

What motivation would China have to sanction NK?????? Is Obama going to do something that will motivate China to help us with our NK problem? I seriously doubt it, he wouldn’t even know where to start.

A more realistic answer is to put the missile shield in South Korea and start a military buildup in S. Korea and Japan.

Ohh yeah China has veto power on the UN Security Council. That means they can just say No to any UN action.

Edwin Drood May 26, 2009 at 1:48 PM  

What Obama will do is the same thing Clinton did. Tell the press to shut up about it and pay NK protection money under the table.

BenT - the unbeliever,  May 26, 2009 at 2:02 PM  

"What motivation would China have to sanction NK??????Perhaps because we are their biggest trading partner and they would like to have even better relations with us. Or maybe it's the self-interest of not having a nuclear war break out in their back yard.

"A more realistic answer is to put the missile shield in South Korea and start a military buildup in S. Korea and Japan."This is a joke right? What ever happened to the conservative idea of "speak softly and carry a big stick"

"What Obama will do is the same thing Clinton did."You know under Clinton we had at least *some* leverage with North Korea. We were sending them fuel and heating oil shipments, which by-the-by alleviate the plight of North Korea's people. Now we have to rely on others for leverage.

What happened when a tough talking Texan cut off those shipments? Oh yeah. They restarted their nuclear reactors.

E.L May 26, 2009 at 2:56 PM  

Yes, under Clinton North Korea was given nuclear technology. Way to go, Bill and Madeleine!

Edwin Drood May 26, 2009 at 3:02 PM  

They didn't restart anything. They started a nuclear program with the nuclear matterial Clinton gave them.

China is not worried about losing us as a customer. They know we can't manufacture affordable goods in this country so we have no choice to buy from them.

If you’re so sure about China's motivation then how do you explain their lack of action?

How is a military build-up not a "big stick"???

Your not even making sense, at this point you will say anything for your lord and master Obama.

I find it amusing that you call yourself the unbeliever yet cling to a blind faith in Obama that defies all logic. This one will be Obamas fault when he relies on the UN or gives into NK demands.

"start a military buildup in S. Korea and Japan"

With what?

Edwin Drood May 27, 2009 at 1:08 PM  

Traditionally Jim you start with a Naval buildup then you bring in heavy aircraft. The great thing about boats and planes Jim is they are easy to move.
