    War on the Korean peninsula is really hinging on one SAM site operator acting without permission and shooting down a stray aircraft, 1 naval skirmish etc. This could get ugly quick.

    My jaw is hitting the desk here....NK sinks a ship, and all we should do is what? Send a letter? Can we type it in bold type so that Il knows we are really, really serious this time?

    Ok diplomatic and military expert.... what should we do? Outline a complete and detailed plan of action... we have a rogue nation which may or may not have nuclear weapons, which could destroy seoul. We have a million men facing eachother on either side which will become a bloodbath.

    Even your precious Ronald Reagan wouldn't have been stupid enough to start a war at this point because we won't know what we're up against. And unfortunately because of China getting tougher sanctions might not be possible (Not that it does anything except hurt the people, the elite in North Korea still get their Champagne and Rolls Royces.)

    I think Obama should go over there and Bow to L'il Kim and tell him we are sorry for the hardship we have wrought on his volk.

    After that, we could scrabble together a few hundred billion to assist his economy. Being smaller than ours it wouldn't cost a trillion. The following trillion would be based on good behavior.

    Obi can call it "spreading the wealth around for world peace".

    Then Obi could suggest he would like a few of L'il Kim's staffers as political advisers. Military perhaps too. Maybe we could give them secrets to perfect their rockets. Ah Snap! Clinton let the ChiComs have that intel, and they probably passed some on to their L'il Buddy.

    Let's see. Can we send Carter again? His last deal lasted 2 seconds after he left the NK airspace. That should make L'il Kim feel all warm and fuzzy, and the Libs can pound their chests and say... we took tough action.

    Perhaps we can send Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. The three could sit together and complain about how evil America is. Jesse, Al and L'il Kimmy could sit around and swap info on how to extort money. Oh damn... I forgot, he could sent Reverend Wright and terror buddy William Ayers. They'll get along like five peas in a pod.

    I think those are Obama's options.

    After his bowing and groveling tour, maybe Obi can tee it up with L'il Kim. Kimmy shot what? 35 under in his first round. He might be able to give Obi a few tips for the next election. That Yes We Can BS ain't gonna fool'em twice.

    Money?

    What the **** is that?

    I know about credit, debt, loans, and mortgages but this money thing is nonsense.

    Nobody legal pays their employees in bills.

    I know! We'll fight a war where millions will die! Shoot a missile to take out North Korean Elvis and watch Seoul burn to the ground as thousands of artillery tubes retaliate!

    Hey, I am an unabashed right winger, and enjoy poking sticks in the eyes of My Old Team.

    I used to be just like you and so many lefties here. I was a pacifist, pro-death, anti-death penalty, government loving moron.

    As each year passed and the air miles went through the roof I realized, little by little what a pile of destructive crap I'd been fed. It sounded good, may have even worked out OK on paper, but under the harsh lights of the real world it failed everywhere. Socialism fails to take into account human behavior; self interest. The USSR was a great example. The small Black Market produced items that people wanted and were far more efficient.

    A view of poor performance of Soviet collective farms is provided by two historians, M. Heller and A. Nekich ("Utopia in Power, History of the Soviet Union from 1917 to Present," Simon & Schuster, Inc., 1986). The authors report that in 1979, 28% of the Soviet agricultural production was from small plots of private citizens, which represented less than 1% of the cultivated land.
    I met a ton of people that lived under the burden of oppressive governments, and I'm not talking about Commies behind the Iron Curtain. They had to cheat to keep their heads and businesses above water. It was sobering to watch people at the mercy of a piggish government. People that sweated out payrolls, tough times, had sleepless nights or nights at the office trying to keep their business alive... while the workers demanded more and the government piled on more burdens. It is sickening. These governments think and treat businesses as social programs; a mere extension of the state. And then complain when they escape to more friendly places.

    I couldn't stand to live a lie... which is what socialism is. It is why the Left courts the young, dumb and full of cum crowd with a passion. They know the mass of kids react to emotion and not intellect. They're too young and idealistic to know any better.
