Ok my perspective, I dont read Tom Clancy BTW, is based on an actual occurance that you seem to be all to willing to mitigate because it fits your personal preference.
An additional nuclear detonation by N.Korea wasn't in the latest Tom Clancy book, it happened. Also seeing how under your idiot President things have gotten much worse with 2 new Islamic threats rising up under Morsi and Lybia, the incompetence and lies that surround Benghazzi, Iran improving on their ballistic missle technology and moving full steam ahead on uranium enrichment and N. Korea setting off an additional nuke please understand why I think your blind allegiance style of International affairs is so full of $hit.
Not to mention the rising tension between China and Japan.....which I mentioned. All these things are substantial, not imagined or out of a book.
Whats ironic is that as your side throws around the tin hat cliche you also argue that we're currently in the midst of a economic recovery and the current economic or foreign policy disaster that confronts us is the fault of ONE MAN who hasn't been in office in 4 years.
I tend to ignore the input of someone that argues that an exploding debt, 8,500,000 million jobs disappearing, massive injections of capital by the Fed, a rising dependent class, a shrinking economy , and rising taxes with rising unemployment is the way to fix the economy.
