Can yoou imagine a more predictable headline. Thanks NBC for telling us what we already knew.
U.S. May Launch Strike If North Korea Reaches For Nuclear Trigger — The U.S. is prepared to launch a preemptive strike with conventional weapons against North Korea should officials become convinced that North Korea is about to follow through with a nuclear weapons test, multiple senior U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News.
Notes: If N Korea reaches for the nuclear trigger, the US might launch a preemptive strike?? !! Seriously? That is big NBC news item? Did anyone bother to get out of bed, before dreaming up this headline?
Now, if Barack "Red Line" Obama was still president, this headline would be news, but not under Presidents 1 thru 43 and 45. I am not saying he (Obama) wouldn't stop Korea. I am saying is, "We don't know what he would do." I mean he chickened out on the Red Line and lied about all that poisonous gas he rescued from Assad; I believe Kerry used the term "100%" in describing how much of Syria's gas supply "we" extracted. Barack lost the peace in Iraq just two years after saying "We left a strong, stable and sovereign Iraq" (words to that effect, Dec. 2011), and didn't even get close to winning his war in Afghanistan. He wouldn't allow Poland and the New Czech Republic to install the missile defense system Bush promised via Congressionally approved treatises. He allowed ISIS to fester and grow from an army of zero to a physical threat in more than 20 countries, while thousands were slaughtered at their hands. He pretended to have a coalition of 61 nations in the fight against ISIS, when, in fact, he had no more than four Arab nations nominally involved (thanks John Kerry for that monstrous lie). He allowed for the military destruction of Somalia and Libya. Finally, he promised Putin more flexibility after the 2012 elections, whatever in the hell that meant.
In short, he (Obama) set the Middle East on fire, and, allowed Russia back into Crimea. Talking about the Korean threat, and, speaking as a citizen living on the West Coast, "Thank God this moron of a president is history."
And everyone said, "Amen."
