On North Korea’s Missile’s, If We Had Any Guts . . .

By Debbie Schlussel
If we had any guts and had any intention of sending North Korea’s Kim Jong Il a message, instead of empty “tough” talk, we would have shot its Taepodong-2 missiles down, back in June when we could see them and had the chance to do so.
I’ve said it before. I’m saying it again. From my June 21st column:

Then, there is North Korea. Competing with Ahmadinejad in the over-Viagra-ed department, North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il is test-launching long-range Taepodong-2 missiles capable of reaching the U.S.

An Allegory for Real Life: “Team America’s” Kim Jong Il Test Missiles and Feeds Empty Western Tough Talkers to His Pet Shark

So what do we do in response? Secretary Rice warns that the testing of such missiles would be a “provocative act.” Wrong. A Paris Hilton video is a “provocative act.” This is frightening–an act of war, infinitely more serious. Calling it a “provocative act” is not exactly boot-quake inspiring verbiage. It won’t do a thing. It certainly won’t stop North Korea from pursuing its missile practice.
We must shoot their missiles down to show them we mean business. There is no other way.
Ronald Reagan had it right. Peace through strength. Not through pillow talk. The world respected his tough behavior. The world laughs at our current wimpishness.

Israel had the right idea when, in 1981, it took out Iraq’s Osirak Nuclear Reactor. We should have taken a page from their playbook and shot the missiles down.
We didn’t. And we look weak. Because we are.
No guts. No glory. And no survival.
Speak Loudly & Carry A Toothpick.

You’re a real tough gal Debbie, but the test last night was conducted in a mine shaft. He didn’t launch any missiles that I know of.
And- our anti missile system is still in its infancy and has a poor track record so far. Can you imagine the embarrassment if we tried to shoot one down an failed?

Yeah Debbie they conducted the test in a mine shaft no big deal, And it is no big deal that Clinton is the reason that the N Koreans now have the bomb, him and Madaline Halfbright. The Clinton appeasers have always said, that the United States should NOT be the only superpower, it was NOT fair,so they set about creating rogue states with Nuclear capabilities, they gave national secrets to the chinese as well. The Democrats CAN NOT BE TRUSTED WITH THE SECURITY OF THIS COUNTRY, AND THIS IS REASON ENOUGH NOT TO VOTE FOR THEM.
The Useless UN is now going to put sanctions on an already starving North Korea, can you think of a better inducement for a country to invade its rich neighbor, and now with the threat of nuclear annihilation.
We had better have the ‘Boomers’ armed and on station.

With WHAT???
IF “we” had a death star then MAYBE “we” would have a PLAN…but then again, maybe “we” would’ve recognized IraN was always the real threat instead of bogging down in IraQ…oh well, can’t blame GW for being 3 letters off
