Some folks are wondering if North Korea’s ship sinking and cannon firing (into South Korea) is their idea of extortion – that this is the latest episode of North Korea growling and snapping like a pit bull, which will be followed by the Chinese brokering a deal and extracting another pound of flesh out of our economic hide where we buy North Korea off and give them a bribe to behave for awhile. 
 
On the other hand killing South Korean sailors and blowing up civilians with artillery bombardments isn’t normal behavior even for North Koreans. Both were acts of war. So it’s possible instead of being blackmailers the North Koreans are just plain crazy.
 
The President – sending North Korea a message of his own – has sent the nuclear aircraft carrier George Washington sailing straight up to North Korea’s door step. And Hillary has gone to the Chinese, again, asking them to rein in their pit bull, but this time instead of accommodating us the Chinese have announced they don’t want our aircraft carrier in the Yellow Sea either.
 
So, now, we’ve got an unreliable ally – the Chinese – on one side and a pit bull (who’s either belligerent or crazy or both) on the other and the George Washington sailing straight at both of them and let’s hope the North Koreans are blackmailers because we may find ourselves fighting a war in the Yellow Sea if they’re crazy.

Aw...c'mon. This is just stuff being done by the N. Koreans to get more concessions and more financial help from the West. It's just totally ridiculous that we continue to fall for that. We need to float a sub in that region and fire a few salvos into N. Korea and tell these idiots that any further actions by them will be dealt with using all of our resources.

But...nah...we'll kow-tow to their ploy and fall victim to their knowledge that we're just one more super power that is afraid to take the necessary action needed to stop this idiocy.

We know if/where this country has nuclears and/or areas they're trying to develop them and we should take them out. 'Nuff said.

The Chinese are our allies? Carter, you know NC politics like no one else. But when you opine about things outside our borders, I don't know whether to laugh or cringe.
