UPDATED: Our President naively said “I think we did OK”.
Guess again, Mr. President!
He was told, . . . in no uncertain terms . . . America’s claim to be ‘the leader of the world’s most powerful nation’ is over! It’s like the rest of the world is whispering behind our backs . . . and everyone knows, but us.
President NewBama has been said to be intelligent; so were most of the great appeasers; they just had no common sense nor understanding of “EVIL” – commonly called “street smarts”!
You wonder why the puppet Communist state is readying to send a nuclear weapon . . . oooooops . . . I mean, a rocket capable of carrying a nuclear weapon, . . . into space and why war ships are gathered off-shore and we’re told they’re ready to shoot it down?
Wonder why our DOD’s cyber system has been “pinged” and penetrated?
Wonder why Israel has said, . . . . Never Mind, U.S.; we’ll protect ourselves!
It’s 2/3rds of a century past, but all over again, it seems like pre-Pearl Harbor.
An exercept from the Washington Times:
“An electromagnetic pulse attack on the American homeland, said one of the distinguished scientists who testified at the hearing, is one of only a few ways that the United States could be defeated by its enemies – – terrorist or otherwise.”
An EMP attack would do what to the U.S.? We’d be much like any 3rd world nation, unable to transport troops to protect our borders, our population . . . . even keep our food refrigerated! Take a look at the links below.
Would a national leader have to be crazy to attack the U.S.? Or one which is suicidal?
The North Korean rocket would weigh about 80 tons and could place a payload of 100 kilograms, or 220 pounds, into orbit at about 250 miles, David Wright, co-director of the Union of Concerned Scientists’ Global Security Program, wrote recently , citing some inconclusive assumptions. When used as a missile, the same rocket could carry a 500-kilogram, or 1,100-pound, payload about 5,600 miles, far enough to reach San Francisco.
Though we do not expect this to happen now, it’s very possible in the near future. Still, N. Korea has significant dealings with Pakistan, Russia, and China, all of which are among the nuclear powers. It’s not inconceivable that one of many world powers (or those who wish to be) would have procured a nuclear weapon for N. Korea to use. N. Korea’s own nuclear program is progressing but as for having a nuclear weapon, Iran is thought to be closer – purchasing one missing from Russia is not out of the realm of possibilities.
We’ve not come to grips with the intent of the Muslim world – with their proxy fighters, Hamas and hundreds of other terrorist groups willing to die to kill us . . . . to wipe us off the face of the earth, all to enable them to kill their arch-enemy, Israel.
My understanding is that the consensus is that N. Korea is developing this rocket system to sell. Obviously, with the stockpile of fissionable material stockpiled, the concern is about whether Iran would be the buyer, but the real threat comes from terrorists . . . .
Meanwhile, Alfred E. NewBama and his wife Michelle cavort, in the company of royals and accept an invitation to Moscow ….
