He gets laughed at by the same people who scoffed at Muslims destroying the Twin Towers following that failed attempt in 1993 -- the same people who sneered that ISIS was the JV squad in Kobe shirts -- the same people who told me there were WMD in Iraq
And no, Obama was not the only one in Washington who wrote off the Islamic State.
Kim Jong Un is a real threat to the United States. He is ruthless, using antiaircraft guns to execute his uncle -- and then burning the body.
A DPRK Today article – run with the byline Cho Hyong Il, allegedly a North Korean nuclear scientist – warns, “Our hydrogen bomb is much bigger than the one developed by the Soviet Union.” It muses, “If this H-bomb were to be mounted on an intercontinental ballistic missile and fall on Manhattan in New York City, all the people there would be killed immediately and the city would burn down to ashes.”
The KCNA did run a nuclear threat article this weekend, but it did not specifically target the United States. Instead, KCNA threatened a “preemptive retaliatory strike” against the United States and South Korea for joint military drills being held at the border. The drills, named Key Resolve and Foal Eagle, feature 300,000 troops, engaged in a simulation exercise in which they are to practice the invasion of Pyongyang and restoration of stability after the fall of Kim Jong-un.
“Over 27 000 [sic] U.S. imperialist aggressor troops deployed in south Korea are within the firing range of the merciless ultra-modern strike means of the DPRK,” an article in Rodong Sinmun reads, describing the drills. The newspaper describes the premise of the military exercises as a threat of an actual invasion of Pyongyang, not just practice for when the Kim regime falls. “They may ignite a nuclear war if they wish to perish. Once there is a sign of such provocation, the ultra-modern strike means, nuclear weapons of the DPRK, will preempt a counter-action to have the pent-up wrath and grudge settled,” the article concludes.The Church commission led to a ban on assassinating foreign leaders.
