Why is North Korea Threatening the United States?


To state the obvious, because it can.

It’s not just North Korea’s nuclear program moving steadily forward that has made the North Korean military establishment this aggressive, it was also the total collapse of American power under Obama Inc.

Obama’s Asia pivot was exposed by China’s aggression as a hollow joke. The United States is no longer a Pacific power. China is. And China is North Korea’s sugar daddy.

Worse still, North Korea successfully defied successive presidents in developing and distributing nuclear technology. It expects that the United States will shortly be facing conventional and ballistic nuclear missiles from Iran that were developed with North Korean aid.

The North Korean military is no match for the United States, but neither were the Taliban or the Baathist insurgency. A comparative look at manpower and weaponry only gets you so far without also comparing morale. North Korea is willing to play chicken. Obama isn’t.

Obama proved that he didn’t have the staying power in Afghanistan or Iraq. His big military reforms involve dramatically slashing the military while imposing homosexuality and women-in-combat to further degrade its readiness and capabilities. Obama Inc. has used the defense budget as its private Green Energy slush fund while wrecking the Air Force and Navy.

So why shouldn’t North Korea slap Obama across the face? They know the chances of him doing anything about it are so infinitesimal as to be utterly meaningless.

Obama doesn’t have the guts to stand up to North Korea, so North Korea’s leadership is gaining status by humiliating Obama. And the message that sends to American allies in Asia is that they need to reach an understanding with China in order to be safe from North Korea.

Despite movies like the Red Dawn remake or Olympus has Fallen, North Korea won’t be invading the United States any time soon. But there will be incidents and more tests and more North Korean weapons flowing to American enemies.

While North Korean troops won’t be landing in California tomorrow, the nuclear bomb that terrorists may detonate in Los Angeles will probably be derived from North Korean technology with the help of North Korean experts.

And then who will have the last laugh?

    North Korea, an absolute basket case, has taken the pulse of America's leadership. As such, the hermit kingdom has emitted its diagnosis – DOA.
    And they are basically correct, since Obama & surrogates are managing to destroy the US's image, as a hyper power.
    More to the point, the Commander-in-Chief is taking his orders from tinpot dictators, and all manner of rogue regimes. The question becomes: when will patriotic Americans coalesce against this inner treachery – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/03/17/when-the-u-s-

    This is high comedy.

    "It’s not just North Korea’s nuclear program moving steadily forward that has made the North Korean military establishment this aggressive, it was also the total collapse of American power under Obama Inc."

    Let's just hope Lil' Kim Jong Un is reading this stuff. Maybe he will be stupid enough to actually believe it and do something he can't take back.

    "Obama’s Asia pivot was exposed by China’s aggression as a hollow joke. The United States is no longer a Pacific power. China is. And China is North Korea’s sugar daddy."

    Russia, China and America have been targeted by global Islamic jihadism along with all other civilized nations of the world, and there is no question that Russia and China are among America's greatest potential allies in the war on terrorism. What most people fail to realize is that the irritants of N. Korea and the Islamic Republican of Iran are as much or more a nuisance and a problem for Russia and China as they are for America and our allies. Watch for Russia to work closely with us in neutralizing Iran and for China to work closely with us in neutralizing N. Korea.

    "Worse still, North Korea successfully defied successive presidents in developing and distributing nuclear technology. It expects that the United States will shortly be facing conventional and ballistic nuclear missiles from Iran that were developed with North Korean aid."

    At least there is no illusion about the nuclear capabilities of N. Korea and Iran being "all Obama's fault". Obama's policies are to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, and to contain, and if necessary, to eliminate the nuclear weapons capabilities of N. Korea.

    "The North Korean military is no match for the United States, but neither were the Taliban or the Baathist insurgency. A comparative look at manpower and weaponry only gets you so far without also comparing morale. North Korea is willing to play chicken. Obama isn’t."

    On this last point, I agree. N. Korea is playing chicken. Obama is playing for keeps.

      International politics is closer to chess in 4 dimensions rather than a game of football with the final score being the last argument. One thing all Democratic presidents suck at is brinkmanship and 0'Bama set himself up for failure very early on.

      "On this last point, I agree. N. Korea is playing chicken. Obama is playing for keeps."

      But China will still win.

        We would all be better off if China annexed N. Korea, and that may happen sooner rather than later if Kim Jong Un keeps pushing the world toward nuclear war. War is bad for business, and China is all about business.

        • objectivefactsmatter

          "We would all be better off if China annexed N. Korea"

          When our enemies have proxies and we have a country full of dupes it's better to keep things simple.

          "War is bad for business, and China is all about business."

          Expanding regional and even global Chinese hegemony is very good for the form of capitalism "business" China is interested in.

            China is not our enemy. Their objective is the same as ours, i.e. to maximize their productive capacity, keep their people healthy, well educated, well-armed, and well fed, and avoid being overrun and consumed by the globalist jihadist conspiracy and holocaust. N. Korea is an irritant to China as much as it is to us, and will not be tolerated past a certain point.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            "China is not our enemy."

            My goodness you are naive. They are not a mortal enemy at this point. The regime is a hostile competitor and if they get their way they will have done more harm than any other enemy has managed so far, all without intending to annihilate us. They want to usurp our hegemony and by the way, their constitution is not exactly compatible with ours. Neither are their attitudes about "social justice" unless you count the part of hypocrisy and unintended consequences.

            1) How many planets have human habitation?
            2) Their idea of keeping wellness for their population means "wellness" for the elite, not the individuals. It's hilarious in a sickening way to hear Westerners talk about "wage slavery" (slave wagery?) in the West while taking pro-Chinese positions as well.

            The regime is a friend of nobody and their interest is to replace us. That's bad for everyone in the world but jihadis and the Chinese regime itself.

            "N. Korea is an irritant to China as much as it is to us…"

            In the same way that jihadis are "irritants" to the Muslim Brotherhood, like Hamas causing all of that trouble in Israel and poor Morsi having to calm things down.

            "…and will not be tolerated past a certain point."

            Iran has worse odds against 0'Bama than NK has against China. That's for sure. But I never like to completely disregard the need to think positively. I just like to make sure we don't forget the facts when we do.

            You have no idea how much China needs to increase its regional power. They need "cooperation" in their objectives, which are not as benign as you think.

  • BLJ

    That weirdo Kim is a puppet of the Chinese Reds no doubt. As far as I am concerned the U.S. should get some payback for the USS Pueblo and the other unreported DMZ incidents over the years.

    Obama is a sissy and a Muslim Marxist so expecting him to do anything is a waste of time. He has his piss poor golf game and NCAA brackets to think about. Anyone who defends this turd is a turd.

  • Indioviejo

    We should be so lucky to have No Korea nuke L.A. or Frisco, or Hawaii for that matter. Then what would Obama do?

  • JacksonPearson

    This is North Korea's way of begging for help and aid….give him a pacifier and he quietes down.

    It is very hard to judge what the true impact of the Arab Spring and the fall of dictators, Burma opening up, Iran flooded with meth, which has flooded into SEA. Has had on the DPRK illicit earnings. The PRC may prop them up, but it is the illicit earnings that allows them to do all the naughty things. They are pretty upset so it may have had more of an impact than people outside the regime has realized. They had the nuclear business with Assad, business ties with Mubarak, etc. Meth has flooded into Iran and then due to oversupply into the SEA market. Perhaps things are that bad that war is an option, if they are really up against the wall.Black money very hard to tell.

    The United States stations 28,500 troops in South Korea. In November 2012 the US upgraded its weapons systems and announced an agreement with Japan that would allow South Korea to bomb anywhere in North Korea. In June 2012 the Pentagon announced that Gen.l Neil H. Tolley would be removed as commander of US Special Operations in South Korea after he revealed to a Japanese foreign affairs publication that American and South Korean troops had been parachuting into North Korea on spy missions.
    US troops and bases are not popular. Protests erupted in 2002 after two Korean woman were killed and a court martial found the US soldiers not guilty of negligent manslaughter. Several pubs and restaurants put up signs saying “Americans Not Welcome Here.” In an August 2005 protest against US troops by 1,100 people, 10 were injured by police. One month before that, 100 were injured in a protest. In 2006 protesters occupied land on which the US planned to expand a base, resulting in a conflict and their eviction followed by installing barbed wire around the area to protect it from South Koreans. The South Korean government banned a rally that was expected to draw more than 10,000 protesters.

    South Korea and the US regularly hold military exercises off the Korean coast, which North Korea describes as planning for an invasion. The United States claims these exercises are defensive in nature to assure preparedness. Prior to the recent nuclear test, Seoul and Washington conducted a joint naval exercise with a US nuclear submarine off South Korea’s east coast, followed by a joint air force drill as well as live weapon exercises near a disputed sea boundary between North and South Korea.
    These drills have gotten more aggressive during the Obama administration and since the death of Kim Jong-il,
