Obama Inc. Bows to North Korean Threats, Claims It Isn’t Bowing to North Korean Threats


Obama Inc. is absolutely not backing down by cancelling a missile launch. That would be crazy. They’re just scrapping the missile launch to ease tensions which is nothing at all like backing down.

The decision to delay critical U.S missile tests is not a sign that the White House is bowing to North Korea’s “bellicose rhetoric,” a top administration official said Sunday.

During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” senior Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer said the decision was “absolutely not” a retreat after Pyongyang’s recent aggressive actions against the U.S. and its allies in the Western Pacific.

“The onus is on North Korea to take the step back,” Pfeiffer said regarding North Korea’s threats of military action on the peninsula.

It’s not a retreat. It’s a r’etreat, which is French and completely different. Just ask John Kerry. And the onus is on North Korea. Sadly, North Korea does not appear to be aware that the onus is on it. It is speculated that North Korea does not even know what an onus is or cares about the onus and who it’s on.

That is why North Korea won its standoff with Obama Inc. which cares a great deal about onuses but has all the backbone of a caterpillar.

“North Korea is engaging in the kind of behavior we have seen for many, many years: provocative actions and bellicose rhetoric,” Pfeiffer said. But those actions, he added, will only “further isolate” Pyongyang within the international community.

And that behavior works. Every time North Korea pushes, everyone else falls back. North Korea gets what it wants while the leaders of the international community shrill that the Norks have isolated themselves even more.

Pfeffier’s commens come shortly after Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel postponed tests of the Minuteman 3 missile at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

The delay was designed to tamp down tensions with Pyongyang, a senior defense official told the Associated Press, which first reported the delay.

Just remember, we are absolutely totally not bowing to North Korean pressure. Obama Inc. is only trying to tamp down the pressure by bowing to it. But he’s not bowing.

He’s not.

      Americans are fine people but ALL of your leaders are DEVILS, be they have an R or a D after their name. How is it possible, out of 300 million plus people, you cannot replace those decrepit corrupt 535 that run Washington and your country? Complacent dummies electing corrupt devils.

      PS your currency is not wanted

    This is what the Left has dreamed of since the days of Jimmy Carter. Actually longer ago than that; Neville Chamberlain.

      Except Chamberlain was a Conservative. Not really the "left" party in the UK.

        Conservative is as conservative does. If you don't behave like a conservative, your credentials don't matter. Assuming of course that you're not trolling.

    Of course he is bowing, as this is what a third world devotee does. More significantly, the nexus between bowing to the man-child from N Korea to Iran's bellicosity couldn't be clearer, or more ominous – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/04/07/the-potuss-mi

    "Sadly, North Korea does not appear to be aware that the onus is on it. It is speculated that North Korea does not even know what an onus is or cares about the onus and who it’s on"

    This is second only to Rumsfeld's "known knowns" quote, a masterpiece of clarity. Curiously, the Plain English Campaign slated it. Quite why, I don't understand, as it's immaculate.
