Clearly, predator nations smell blood in the water — and that blood is Obama’s manifest inability to cope with predator nations. At least, that’s how I read this, from BNO News at 9:30 ish p.m. PST:
N. Korea says it is no longer bound to the armistice which ended the war and says the peninsula will soon be returned to the state of war.
Not quite 3 a.m. in the White House, but close enough, right? The only thing I know with pretty perfect certainty right now is that BHO has absolutely no idea what to do. Let’s hope (a) his advisers have some plans and (b) he picks a good plan from the options presented to him.
UPDATE: Lorie Byrd reminds us that, while there’s every reason for us to continue to hope that Obama is unable to carry out his domestic agenda, we should all be at his back right now, praying for a good outcome.
UPDATE II: This news story started running over the wire at about 9:00 pm PST last night (and I picked it up about a half hour later). Shortly before 10:00, I told Mr. Bookworm that North Korea had announced that it was no longer bound by the armistice but was, instead, at war (which I think accurate represents the wire information). Mr. Bookworm was flabbergasted and instantly turned on the news: which didn’t mention this story at all. Every single local station was obsessed with the gay marriage story and nothing short of Amageddon was going to dislodge it! Mr. Bookworm concluded I was hallucinating, although I suspect today’s Drudge headlines might change his point of view.
As it is, someone who has a very good read on these situations thinks it’s still sabre rattling — and will continue to be so until China has a good read on Obama and, if Obama fails to impress China, moves in on Taiwan.
Again, let us join with Lorie Byrd in hoping that Obama passes this test.
