    Kim Jong Un is not the end all be all dictator of North Korea. The entire political party runs the country...they prop him up to be like his father and grandfather...it is obvious he is not either of those two.
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.

    Actually I'm quite amazed that no story has been posted in here. Does anyone else think this is newsworthy or important besides me? I think this punk is deranged.
    I'm more concerned that Obama has surrounded himself with second rate people.

    I concur.

    There is no Ronald Reagan riding on the plains to give America a second chance.

    During the early 1990's there was a General who just not talked for those who stood post protecting America but spoke for all Americans. "Ronald Reagan didn't save America, he gave America a second chance."

    After the Vietnam War, America was morale was at it it's lowest in history. The Democratic Party had been hijacked by the extreme fringe of the radical left. Jimmy Carter was elected President and he couldn't even control his own political party.

    The American military was a hollow military force by the late 70's. Morale was low with in the military because the American public basically despised them. 1/2 of the aircraft in the Air Force and the Navy couldn't fly. Navy ships headed to their AOR would meet the ship they were replacing and would transfer missiles from one ship to the other at sea. Most Navy ships in port had skeloton crews because there weren't enouogh sailolrs to man the ships.

    Soldiers, Marines, sailors and airmen couldn't go off base wearing the uniform without being looked down upon and having derogatory comments directed at them by their liberal peers.

    The Soviet Navy finally realised they could defeat the U.S. Navy on the seas. The U.S. Army was no longer the superior combat force in NATO but the West German Army was.

    The Democrat Party had surrendered and refused to continue to fight the Cold War and stop Communist terrorism and expansion in the world.

    Even Jimmy Carter realised how bad the situation was but he had no control of his party or the radical left who had taken control of the Democrat Party.

    By 1979 just about ever foreign intelligence service said that the Soviets see their chance to pounce upon Western Europe if Jimmy Carter were to be reelected. During the same time you would see the birth of the American militia's and survival movement. Not to fight the U.S. government but Communist troops. That's how the movement was born.

    America was in poor shape back in the late 70's. Gas lines, double digit inflation, interest rates, etc.

    Then out of the West came Ronald Reagan.

    He rebuilt our military. Soldiers, Marines, sailors and airmen could go off base wearing the uniform. The word "liberal" became what it is, anti American a dirty word. And Ronald Reagan is given credited for defeating the Communist and winning the Cold War.

    Fast forward four years later, 1990/1991, the first Persian Gulf War. Probably the most successful war ever fought. It was Reagan's military who fought and won that war. And when G.H. Bush activated our military and sent them to the Persian Gulf, the political left tried to take to the streets and denounce the war and stab the American soldier in the back like they did during the Vietnam War.

    But guess what happened ? It was the Vietnam vets who said you liberals may have stabbed us in the back during the Vietnam War but your not going to do it again with our troops in the Gulf. When the socialist anti war protesters took to the streets we out numbered you and stood on street corners all across America. We put yellow ribbons around the trees in front of our homes not in support of our troops but to give the finger to liberals. The yellow ribbon is a tradition of the U.S. Calvary going back to the 1800's. "She Wore A Yellow Ribbon In Her Hair."

    No. there's no Ronald Reagan in the horizon to give America a second chanced to save it's self. That's why half of America are alarmed. That's why Americans are arming themselves.

    The last time America was so divided was in 1860. Who is responsible for America being so divided today ? Who is in charge today ?

    I have the same concern for those whom he has picked to represent us overseas. As well as those whom he has replaced within the Military.

    Analysis: NKorea threat may be more bark than bite.....



    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Across North Korea, soldiers are gearing up for battle and shrouding their jeeps and vans with camouflage netting. Newly painted signboards and posters call for "death to the U.S. imperialists" and urge the people to fight with "arms, not words."

    But even as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is issuing midnight battle cries to his generals to ready their rockets, he and his million-man army know full well that a successful missile strike on U.S. targets would be suicide for the outnumbered, out-powered North Korean regime.

    It's all part of a plan to force Washington to the negotiating table, pressure the new president in Seoul to change policy on North Korea, and build unity at home — without triggering a full-blown war if all goes well.



    However, what North Korea really wants is legitimacy in the eyes of the U.S. — and a peace treaty. Pyongyang wants U.S. troops off Korean soil, and the bombs and rockets are more of an expensive, dangerous safety blanket than real firepower. They are the only real playing card North Korea has left, and the bait they hope will bring the Americans to the negotiating table.

    More than 100,000 soldiers, students and ordinary workers were summoned Friday to Kim Il Sung Square in downtown Pyongyang to pump their fists in support of North Korea's commander in chief. But elsewhere, it was business as usual at restaurants and shops, and farms and factories, where the workers have heard it all before.

    And in a telling sign that even the North Koreans don't expect war, the national airline, Air Koryo, is adding flights to its spring lineup and preparing to host the scores of tourists they expect to flock to Pyongyang despite the threats issuing forth from the Supreme Command.

    War or no war, it seems Pyongyang remains open for business.

    According to this.....it's all about Jong Un crying wolf after tooting his horn. Sure hope they are Right.
    What the hell are all those ribbons for? It's not like they've been to battle in 60 years or something. Ever notice the generals, they cover the front and the back of their uniforms. Bunch of posers.

    Well, to be honest look how old he is. Most of the Ranking Officer Elite are like in their 60's, 70's, 80's.
