President Obama preps for some mean finger pointing at North Korea in a
proposed threat of a speech to that nation.
CAEN, France (AP) — His patience tested, President Barack Obama on Saturday
promised a new and stronger response to defiant North Korea, saying that while he prefers diplomacy he is now taking a "very hard look" at making a speech.
"We are not intending to continue a policy of rewarding provocation," he said, alluding to recent North Korea nuclear and missile tests. “North Korea must understand that if they do not change and continue on the path that they are on, that the potential is there that they’re going to have to suffer through at least one hour of me in front of a Tele-Prompter,” he added.
President Obama also stated, "We are going to take a very hard look at this option. I don't think that there should be an assumption that we will simply continue down a path, in which North Korea is constantly destabilizing the region and we just react in the same ways, after they've done these things for a while, then we reward them. I can‘t think of a better punishment than giving them one of my barn-burners" Obama said.
North Korea response was as defiant as ever. North Korean Government spokesperson Yong -Il stated, “He can apologize for America’s misdeeds all he wants in a speech directed toward us. We could care less.”
However, there were signs that the North Korean regime might be worried as to this new American tactic. North Korean diplomats at the United Nations have inquired if sitting through an hour of an Obama speech might be considered torture under present U.N definitions.
Administration officials have also talked in recent days of possible further penalties against North Korea, already one of the most isolated nations. Defense Secretary Robert Gates has advised Asian allies that additional copies of “The Audacity of Hope” have been translated in Korean and could be delivered to North Korea ahead of the proposed speech.
Komrade ZarkofDon't pull Lord Obama's finger, Dear Leader Kim! Methane explosions are almost as bad as nuclear bombs!!
I am suspicious of this photograph because The One is fair and tolerant, so it follows that he would allow further funding of the DPRK's nuclear weapons program to defend itself from us by the use of Rock, Scissors, Paper. That is a very fair game that even children can understand and, for those of us lucky enough to recall life under Comrade Carter, he took advice from a child about nukes or something (What? No links?) and even bravely reported a UFO in 1969.
He also learned how not diamonds but chainsaws are a girl's best friend. (One search result claimed this link would lead me to the text "Like Amy Carter at a wet t-shirt contest." but no dice.)
That understanding which is deepest is shallowest.
But as anyone who has played Rock, Scissors, Paper knows, Dynamite is used only by cheaters and libertarian JJ from Good Times. Thus this seems to be a prime example of the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy. That it has learned how to use Photoshop, probably by waterboarding a graphic designer, is truly terrifying.
In trying to find links, it's odd that of the few relevant hits for "Amy Carter chain saw," the sample text on the search engine page shows tempting stuff but the link itself doesn't have it! Not a single thing could I find on Carter, the girl, nukes, and the USSR. What's that thing called, the Memory Hole? Maybe it is bottomless, if you're a Dem idol.
You are forgetting that Dear Leader Carter also thwarted an unprovoked attack from a Bourgeois killer rabbit!
Also, I believe Comrade Carter's daughter's sage advice was something along the lines of "Daddy, ain't nuclear weapons aawwwful?"
You bear a striking resemblance to the heretofore anonymous swamp rabbit pictured at Wikipedia and elsewhere. I am glad to see that your progressivism has progressed.
My prepubescent memory was that a little Soviet girl wrote to Jimmy and a little American girl wrote to Jimmy (and maybe Leonid (or whichever dirtbag it was then), but probably Jimmy, since kids instinctively know who the playground wuss is) and the two leaders embraced the wisdom of children. Each nation milked the touchy-feeliness, but I bet the Soviets played it to greater advantage than Carter. But I could be wrong, very wrong.

My dear glorius Comrade Kim, the Dear Leader,
All the best, Dear Leader,
When did Comrade Bob shave his little mustache?
We know that The Party™ was not informed of this event, perhaps he acted from his 'true self' like comrade Kazan.
We see that The One has even brought Comrade
I might be at risk of quoting that reactionary Gandalf, but: "Mighty are the powers of this one!"
However, a set of grey and prosaic
The mystery surrounding
On the face of it, there seems little reason why
That has not deterred
