In case you missed it North Korea launched a missile into space, propelling a satellite into orbit. A great accomplishment for the ignominious nation, but did the first stage explode or not; questions are now being asked if the satellite launch was successful. Kim Jong Un, the Little Big Man has stuck a barb in the eye of the western world.
The launch was roundly condemned by the international community. US Secretary of State John Kerry called it a “flagrant violation” of UN resolutions and warned of “significant measures to hold the DPRK [North Korea] to account.”
What will the eventual tit for tat begin. Talk about bombing the country, blowing the satellite out of orbit, a planned assassination of the Napoleon wanna-be or an invasion from South Korea. Of course with Obama waving the white flag, don’t expect much to happen. He may go yellow pants, but when push comes to shove POTUS will run for the hills. So what else is new?
Whatever happens today, tomorrow or next week, we are living in a dangerous world. Without the United States exerting any authority whatsoever, Islamists, Dictators, Anarchists reign. Do not be surprised if Israel is attacked in the very near future. Will they be pushed to the point that they will have no alternative but to tarp the Middle East with a mushroom cloud? This will give sanction to the rest of the world that anything goes.
China invading the Spratly Islands has brought Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan into the fray. Africa, being run amok by Boko Haram, killing all in their path, like Pol Pot‘s killing fields; why stop at one when you can kill a million plus, Syria: 250,000 killed, 10 million relocated and the beat goes on. ISIS having its day, seizing large areas of Iraq without a peep from the U.S. Latin America soon to go revolution as Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela become dead beats. We are seeing global warming first hand, man made with the best defense is a good offense.
