This is another test of THE ONE’s mettle, and once again, he flunked.
……North Korea defied international pressure and launched a missile last night. Officials from that country claim a satellite was placed in orbit. U.S. defense officials confirm that a missile was launched but that no object was placed in orbit.
……Obama said the United States “will immediately consult with our allies in the region, including Japan and the Republic of Korea, and members of the U.N. Security Council to bring this matter before the Council.”
Let’s see….North Korea just violated United Nations Security Council Resolution 1718, which expressly prohibits North Korea from conducting ballistic missile-related activities of any kind. You think they give a shit about “consulting with the U.N.”?
Besides, China holds more influence over North Korea than any other entity. Bejiing could have brought the launch to a halt with a phone call.
Kim Jong Il just flipped the proverbial bird at B. Hussein, and he won’t confront North Korea or China over this.
In case you haven’t noticed, Obama is a fucking putz. We can expect much more saber rattling and out-and-out threats from America’s enemies.
He’s putting Jimmy Carter to shame.
