North Korean Saber Rattling: Take 100

Kim Jong Un’s relentless campaign of violent propaganda took a particularly nasty swing this week as North Korea announced that its atomic fuel production plants were back in full operating order. The news itself, believed to be at least somewhat accurate, comes as little surprise to experts on the reclusive country. Though the complex at Yongbyon was shut down in 2007, Pyonyang officials have been promising to restart operations since 2013.

The announcement comes on the heels of new war-mongering on the part of North Korea aimed at their democratic neighbor to the south. Last month, Kim Jong Un told his troops to be “ready for war” with South Korea and accused Seoul of broadcasting loud propaganda across the border. Immediate talks between the two countries seems to have cooled the situation for the time being, but Un’s latest announcement is sure to worry both the U.S. and South Korea.

“If the U.S. and other hostile forces persistently seek their reckless hostile policy towards the DPRK and behave mischievously, the DPRK is fully ready to cope with them with nuclear weapons any time,” the director of the North Korean Atomic Energy Institute said.

North Korea has been a persistent thorn in the side of the United States for decades, but president after president has been unsuccessful in cracking through the communist dictatorship. While Un’s constant saber-rattling has made him a joke on Western shores, the digital attack on Sony proved that there is at least some bite behind the bark.

Unfortunately, our complete inability to curb North Korea’s nuclear program – estimates vary, but most experts believe they have at least 10 nuclear warheads – likely encouraged Iran in their negotiations. If North Korea can shut out the world and develop nuclear weaponry, the far-richer Iran perhaps believes they can do it right under the nose of the United States. Obama hasn’t been any more or less successful than his predecessors when it comes to North Korea, but the deal with Iran proves that some things are better left alone.

The question, though, is how long we can continue to simply leave this human rights disaster of a country alone. A 2014 United Nations inquiry confirmed that religious freedom is nonexistent in the hermit kingdom:

North Koreans are tortured, sent to labor camps, and even killed for their faith. Possession of the Bible is illegal, and non-approved Christian religious activities are considered political crimes. Christians and North Koreans who have contact with Christians often face the harshest punishments for practicing their faith.

“The problem is a new formula needs to be pursued,” said Daryl Kimball of the Arms Control Association told Politico. “When a certain policy, however logical, however principled, isn’t working … we’re past the point where an adjustment is in order. You don’t keep trying the same thing if it’s not achieving the result you want.”

Even if we’re willing to overlook the evil being done to the citizens of the DPRK, we cannot long afford to overlook Kim Jong Un’s nuclear arsenal. When he gets desperate (or crazy) enough to launch one of those warheads, we’ll regret the years we wasted laughing him off.

  1. Well seem how we have president that has no spine North Korea knows it best time to take and make America do as they please

    • It’s not only North Korea. No one worries about that pansy we have in office now. Time to really do something instead of talk.

  2. Or in other words IF you made a STUPID deal with Iran wait until you see what I want 0!!!

  3. Way past time to end Short Round. Obozo is ineffective, incompetant, amoral and a communist. Not sure who should be he first to go, NK, or Obozo!

  4. All you have to do is look at SYRIA and all the answers here will become clear. During the start of the UKRAINE
    we cut off all Military to Military contact with RUSSIA. Now Russia is TELLING OBAMA that he better start
    talking to them or else. Well just yesterday Obama stated that he is going to order the Military to start talking to
    the Russian Military. WEAK OF KNEES and MIND is pretty much what comes to my mind.

  5. Lets just drop a nuc and end that SOB’s existence.

  6. Time to make Kimmie Boy a Crispy Critter ……. !

  7. here we go again

  8. No surprise here. Been here before, done that. Seems the Weakling currently occupying the Oval Office is set on repeating with Iran, what his predecessor, Slick Willie did with North Korea when he declared they will not go nuclear under his watch. Then BOOM! Shades of USS Pueblo!

  9. I remember seeing the made for TV movie where Henry Fonda played the part of General Douglas MacArthur like he was a total moron. Now we have Kim Jung Un and his father before him waving around nuclear warheads line a drunk waving around a loaded 357 magnum in a crowded barroom. I just can’t help but wonder if just maybe we should have listened to General MacArthur back then.

  10. This Article Should Be Posted Under ‘Entertainment.’ Don’t let this article distract you from the real trouble a brewing from the Middle-East, of not 10,000 Syrian Refugees entering into the U.S. by Obama, but of possibly as many as 100,000 before Obama is out of office.

    Absolute Trojan Horse — Obama to Let in 10,000 Refugees — But only one family needed to harbors just one member to recreate another Boston Bombing.

    U.S. constant attack on Russia and failing to cooperate will no doubt be a real cause of concern. John Kerry wants to carpet bomb Syria back to the stone age and set up a new U.S. controlled puppet ‘democratic’ government while Russia is only attempting to secure one of their Naval Bases in Tarsus… all the while ISIS, ISIL, or whatever the heck they are are taking control and causing undue widespread terrorist cells and refugees to escape and fee into the EU… soon it will be North, Central and South America, and we need to do something about this very soon. I’d rather have Russia on our side than have both Russia and China against us.

    The U.S. needs to put aside it arrogance and hatred toward Russia and start acting Diplomatically toward Putin and put aside their differences for the sake of our country’s safety.

    “Muslims say they will make it legal to rape white women when they take over Europe”

    The Only Threat to U.S. right now is 10,000 Syrian Refugees… and there is a petition floating around from Raymond C. Offenheiser, Board of Directors of Oxfam America Advocacy; he is looking for signatures to hand over to Obama demanding that he do his part to Bringing In 100,000 so-called refugees into the U.S.

    Again, the petition is asking to bring in 100,000 Refugees into the U.S. We only need just one Refugee or son to become the next Boston Bomber. Is it worth the
    risk?

    Why is it that we see droves of ISIS members driving in parades in broad daylight and yet no strafing runs to irradiate the pests? It would seem like a pretty easy job; there’s little here now to hide under… just a bunch of sitting ducks; unless they’re all now in Europe with the rest of the so-called ‘refugess.’

    • What do Syria and Libya have in common? Answer: Both are victims of American interference.

      • And Hillary Clinton and John Kerry wants to bring in 85,000 potential Boston Bombers by the end of 2016… you and I didn’t have anything to do with this, but now we’re going to suffer two poor administrations efforts in correcting Bush’s mistakes, and we’re now the potential victims of a war nobody wanted. I still don’t want their radical and extremist view on religion and women in our country.
