When vice-president Joe Biden stated that within six months of an Obama presidency, we will see an international crisis. And you know what, he was right. It doesn’t matter if CNN down plays the North Korea launching of short range ballistic missiles. The fact is that North Korea is testing Barack Hussein Obama mettle. We are perceived by the world as a toothless paper tiger. Since opening Pandora’s box as Obama went on a worldwide apology for the arrogance of the United States, the president hasn’t done anything, but talk rhetoric hoping the current event’s fade away.

I hate to tell the president this, but he needs to lead! North Korea tested a nuclear bomb that is as strong as the bomb we used in Nagasaki, Japan in World War II. They have launched a ballistic missile off the coast of Japan. They have tested short range missiles early this morning. The only statement coming from Obama’s attack dogs is that North Korea doesn’t have the technology to put a nuclear device on a missile. Well, if the North Koreans are able to produce the materials, then it would be appropriate to say they have the intelligence to put it all together.

I am reading throughout the blogosphere that Obama was handcuffed and at wits end. He doesn’t know how to approach this. This is the 3AM phone call Hillary Clinton was talking about during the presidential primaries. This turn of events is the defining moment of Obamas national security policy.

This is of serious matters. Forget the Supreme Court nomination because no smokescreen will trump North Korea intent of causing mischief around the world. North Korea is continuing to develop nuclear weapons. They have showcased to rogue nations that they have the technology and ready to sell it to the highest bidder. They have threatened to strike South Korea. They have threatened to shoot at US military ships if they intercept North Korean ships for an impromptu inspection for WMD. North Korean scientists were responsible in making a nuclear facility in Syria, which was bombed by Israel. Making matters worst, North Korea declared to rescind the cease fire agreement of the Korean Conflict.

If these actions don’t deem a necessary response, I am afraid that other enemies of this state will follow suit. Obama promises when he entered office that he would open dialogue with North Korea and Iran. Well, we know appeasement doesn’t work. If we put down our gloves, they will hit us. Forget the moral issue if the other party doesn’t have any morals. We need to strike and tell the world we mean business. If Joe Biden had correctly guessed on the time line of this international crisis, I would recommend to waterboard our current vice-president to see what else he knows.
