I agree. Personally I think we should close all military bases around the globe and pull out and let the world fend for it self. We have everything we
need resource wise right here in our own country the only reason we give into other countries demand's is because our politicians want to build an
Then we don't have to worry about looking weak or diplomacy. The answer would be very clear mess with us and get wiped out. The situation the world
finds itself in right now is like a person A trying to keep up with person B. While those two are trying to out do each other somebody else comes
along and beats them both.
I don't think there really is any talking left to do. Action needs to be taken, but the UN and our allies have grown accustom to US being the
"muscle" and they have no idea how to handle the situation.
It's just that I have a hard time believing that they are just now finding out that NK had plans to test a nuke. They have known about this for a
while now and they are going to try to spin this into a political victory. The way things work though is that you can only spin things, lie, and
manipulate very serious situations for political gain before it catches up with you.
Honestly, Obama could make a statement right now detailing the situation and send a message. He didn't though he is going to wait till tomorrow so he
can stand up in front of the cameras and get all the attention. That is the reoccurring theme with him.
All this reeks of another lets use a serious crisis for political gain tactic. Also Obama just happens to be president right now, if it was McCain the
reaction would be the same, put it off and use it for political gain.
I do have to admit though that this situation is very tough, and the action that needs to be taken needs to be well thought out, but for a president
that one of his campaign platform pillars was nuclear disarmament and he hasn't even released a statement yet, seems well, weak.
That is where I'm coming from.
Edit - to change proliferation to disarmament.
