I thought the rest of the world was supposed to love us once BHO was elected.

It seems that the show tune singing madman in charge of Communist North Korea didn’t get the memo.

Perhaps Hans Blix should write a strongly worded letter.

One thing Biden got right

March 9, 2009

Remember when Joe Biden said there would be countries challenging the new President, within six months of his taking office? That was one thing Joe was spot on correct about.

Latest in the parade of enemies of Freedom is Communist China. The AP reports:

The Pentagon charged Monday that five Chinese ships shadowed and maneuvered dangerously close to a U.S. Navy vessel in an apparent attempt to harass the American crew.

Defense officials in the Obama administration said the incident Sunday followed several days of “increasingly aggressive” acts by Chinese ships in the region. The incident took place in international waters in the South China Sea, about 75 miles south of Hainan Island.

Let’s see, the Iranians are building nuclear bombs, the North Koreans are launching missiles, and the Russians are taking over military bases we need to supply our troops in Afghanistan.

In case you are grasping how big a problem this is, let’s review our Dear Leader’s recent gaffe filled visit with the Prime Minister of Great Britain. That was explained, by the President’s own staff, as BHO and his team being “overwhelmed.” Wait! It gets worse!

A well-connected Washington figure, who is close to members of Mr Obama’s inner circle, expressed concern that Mr Obama had failed so far to “even fake an interest in foreign policy”. …

As I said before the election, “President Obama” is Putin’s wet dream. BHO’s own choice for VP, agreed with me, although he put a bit more politely.

More corruption at the United Nations

July 3, 2008

No real surprise there. More like “business at Usual.”
George Russell of Fox News points out that United Nations bureaucrats are breaking their own “ethics” rules to hide massive corruption.

…[a] whistleblower charged that [United Nations Development Program] had funneled millions in hard-currency to the regime of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il and allowed North Korean government employees to run key aspects of its development program there. Then, he claimed, UNDP retaliated by firing him.

In UNDP’s case, a vivid insight into the potential for abuse was provided by the North Korean investigative report, which was made public in early June. UNDP immediately hailed the 353-page report as vindication—even though the document reiterated at great length that UNDP had systematically violated its own rules in hiring North Korean government employees to fill key UNDP jobs in the country, illegally handed over millions in hard currency to the government of Kim Jong Il, and ignored the laws of the U.S. and other countries in handing on sensitive “dual use” civilian-military technology to the Kim regime, even as North Korea was building and testing a nuclear weapon.

So, the UN is violating its own ethics rules, handing “millions in hard currency” to Communist dictators, punishing whistle blowers and denying they did anything wrong. Yup, sounds like business as usual at the United Nations.

How’d That Work Out?

October 8, 2006

Mike of Mike’s America asks that important question. Let’s put it into context. North Korea, run by a musical obsessed madman, demands that the United States of America talk to him or he’ll set off a nuclear bomb.

Mike points out that:

It seems everyone ignores the fact that we HAVE talked to the North Koreans, as recently as last October, as part of the six nation framework to deal with the problem.

…and just as important:

And of course the same people demanding talks that exclude allies like Japan and South Korea, and strategic competitors like China and Russia have been shouting the loudest that the U.S. should not act “unilaterally.”

So…just did how all that talking work out in the past?
Under the watchful eye of Billy Jeff Clinton and Madeline Chamberlain, with an assist from Jimmy Carter, we got:

Last time we did the direct talk, talk, talk routine between the U.S. and North Korea, we ended up agreeing to provide the Stalinist regime food aid which freed up millions of dollars for North Korea’s crazy dictator to spend on “other” needs.

We also provided BILLIONS of dollars to build two nuclear power plants, which we presumed would take away any desire for North Korea to develop it’s own nuclear technology.

As soon as the $$$ started flowing, North Korea began cheating on the agreements.

A fine example of doublespeak

September 15, 2004

On Meet the Press, Kerry adviser and former Clinton Sec. of State Madeleine Albright (also known as Madeleine Chamberlain or Neville Albright) put forth the following:

Russert: But didn’t North Korea develop a nuclear bomb on Bill Clinton’s watch?

Albright: No, what they were doing, as it turns out, they were cheating. And the reason that you have arms control agreements is you don’t make them with your friends, you make them with your enemies. And it’s the process that is required to hold countries accountable. The worst part that has happened under the agreed framework, there was these fuel rods, and the nuclear program was frozen. Those fuel rods have now been reprocessed, as far as we know, and North Korea has a capability, which at one time might have been two potential nuclear weapons, up to six to eight now, we’re not really clear. But in this period of time when there has not enough action been taken, I think that the threat from North Korea has increased.

Ok…so what she is saying is that under the Clinton Treaty, North Korea could go a head a develop a nuclear bomb.
What job is she sucking up for in a Kerry administration?
