SEOUL, South Korea — "North Korea said Tuesday it would use nuclear weapons in a "merciless offensive" if provoked — its latest bellicose rhetoric apparently aimed at deterring any international punishment for its recent atomic test blast.
Pyongyang raised tensions a notch by reviving its rhetoric in a commentary in the state-run Minju Joson newspaper Tuesday.
"Our nuclear deterrent will be a strong defensive means ... as well as a merciless offensive means to deal a just retaliatory strike to those who touch the country's dignity and sovereignty even a bit," said the commentary, carried by the official Korean Central News Agency."Now, a real Commander-in-Chief would be brainstorming with his top military advisers, would in fact have been doing so non-stop for quite some time in order to effect a coherent battle plan for both Korea and the Middle East.
But since Mr. Community Organizer doesn't make a SINGLE decision on his own, the guy can flit around the world bowing to our enemies and taking ugly women to Broadway shows.
Doesn't MATTER what he thinks. They tell him what to say, how to say it and when to say it and so sure he's lots of time on his hands.
I mean, ya don't REALLY believe that even the dems would leave the fate of the country to a peacenik nobody without portfolio? Wars would begin, they'd lose their congressional majorities, and the military-industrial complex would grow even larger after filling the orders for alla them tanks and planes.
And as far as the Norks rattling sabers to beat the band, the last thing lil Kimmy wants or needs is a genuine shooting war.
Nope. This is nothing other than an attempt to frighten a jugheaded fellow on Pennsylvania Avenue. They took the mans' measure and found it not only wanting but non-existent.
