I just read the review of Bush's statement regarding NoKo. He said the "international community will respond". My question is, how? Isolate them? -- They couldn't be more isolated if they were on the moon. Starv them with a naval blockade? -- Starving North Koreans envy the Ethiopian diet. You can't starv people who're already hungry. Bomb them back to the stone-age? -- They're already there. Seriously, what can the U.N. do besides do what it always does in response to a crisis...write a strongly worded letter?
Kim Jong-Il wants to sit down to two-party talks with the U.S. to discuss his intent to raid the U.S. national treasury for all he can get. It's simple extortion and wait, peace-at-any-cost liberals will cite the starving citizenry as a reason to grant him an audience with the president. Liberals will magnanimously demand that the U.S. taxpayer fork over billions to help the NoKo economy and it's people...for humanitarian purposes. The complicit, liberal media will portray Bush as an evil, meany who doesn't care for his fellow Earth citizens and probably at some point, he'll cave and do some sort of deal which rewards Kim Jong-Il's extortion plot.
