Isn't there some way we can excuse J.U. from the party and send him home quietly?

Further proof the MSMedia is in the pockets of big money interests [MIC in this case, usually it's the banksters the MSM shills for].......This is an MIC promotion piece facilitating a slow pull of wool over low-info reader's eyes.

Many thought Saddam actually had the WMD that he said he had-he was bluffing. Is Kim bluffing-I think so! Am I willing to bet my life on it? Maybe not!

If Iraq had actually threatened us I would agree with you.

Not a threat to the US continent itself, but to other allies countries in the middle east-look at their history with Kurds, Turkey, Iran, Kuwait! Saddam was not near the saint many make him out to be!

What hysteria level? That of the MSMedia?

Do you know anyone who hysterically fears North Korea? We are in the region doing military trials with the South Koreans, that always raises the ire of North Korean leadership.

A Look At US-South Korea Joint Military Exercises -- by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS --April 11, 2013

Tensions on the Korean Peninsula rise very predictably each year when the United States and South Korea conduct large-scale joint military exercises to prepare for a crisis. Tensions usually don't get as bad as they are now, as the U.S.-South Korea Foal Eagle maneuvers head toward their conclusion, but the war games never fail to bring a sharp response from North Korea.

An excerpt from a Pentagon report........ that was not intended to be released to the public.


Time for another workshop on how to keep the lid on matters of national security.

Why this is a job for Attorney General Eric Holder, whistle-blower prosecutor extrodinaire. Nobody does snitches better than Holder. He's prosecuted more whistle-blowers than all presidential administrations combined.

The public is going to find out how stupid military intelligence is, which could precipitate a crisis in confidence. Sure, North Korea just launched a satellite into a difficult SSO orbit way back in December. Even doing some tricky callisthenics to avoid flying over Taiwan and the Philippine Islands then correcting with a third stage burn. But who can remember what happened in December? We're all tea bags.

Suggest you begin with the orientation training regarding members of Congress handling classified material. ;)

THIS IS IT? This is the only story HP is running on the front page about North Korea and it's buried here at the very bottom?

Wouldn't want this to get in the way of all the other "critical" stories, huh? Like beaver attacks and potato recipes?

Journalism much?

Nuclear missiles are nothing to joke about. America has an arsenal of nuclear weapons as do many other countries. Let's face it if even one or two of us decided to detonate one, the ozone layer would probably peel back even more, and then we should all expect to roast like chickens on a spit. ...In any case I doubt NK's missiles will reach our lands, but it's the fallout that would be the most disastrous. NK should think twice before they start something they cannot finish.

Just send Navy and Air Force kill off the North Korea military and nukes, and leave without rebuilding and aid.

way to go Lamborn. Especially since the Air Force Academy and NORAD are in your 5th District, Colorado. I bet the military is real proud of you disclosing classified info that was accidentally de-classified. Trying to make the "little known" lawmaker from Colorado a name for yourself. You should be ashamed.

Heh.....and he's a republican. Why is that significant? Because he revealed classified data (Oooooo, WikiLeaks, where's the FBI when ya really need 'em?), just like another hard-right conservative (Utah) who proudly announced the NSA was listening to every cell phone and sat-phone conversation al Qaeda was having. The terrorists immediately threw away all their 'phones and bought throwaways, began using code, and turned to couriers for important communications.

Of course, under the circumstances, you would have known intuitively that the document was classified.

Many reasons for their collapse, the U.S. being a foundational one.

Its all about the missile threats, but you won't hear the call for something to eat afterwards.

Odd, isn't it, that hunger is growing in America. Austerity is good for the American waistline.

let me translate for my Conservative friends :" I didn't read the whole thing" means I cherry picked information looking for something that will cause a stir and get my name in the news because screw national security and being a good leader of the people I represent I need to be in the news cycle so I can get more Facebook likes and waste time and your money accusing the president of not being born in this country because that's what America needs now, not jobs, not budgets, we need speculation because that's how you make rational decisions

HufPo is beginning to look more and more like a sensationalist Murdoc newspaper.

Pentagon analysts crank out mountains of 'what if' scenarios to explore what our response could be with the forces they have available.

The only difference is that a GOP congressman decided to treat this one as if it was something more than it is. Of course we all know the GOP is itching to go to war somewhere so they can have a reason to restore the portions of the defense budget cut by sequestration. We're lucky Obama is in office. If it were a Republican we'd probably be invading Iran and NK by now.

Well it seems fairly simple and clear, if they have the capacity to launch nuclear upon us and they have both verbally and physically threatened to do so.......I would say we should neutralize their capability before they hurt us.
If you neighbor threatened to shoot you then showed up with a gun at your property line and aimed it at you, would you invite him in for coffee? Or would you take pre-emptive action to assure that you and your family was safe.
Of course there is always the usual US way of handling threats by third world countries,,,lets give them lots of our money to keep them from hurting us...I believe that is called extorsion but hey, the US has lots of money right, we don't need new schools, roads, bridges.
Lets give it to the parts of the world that hate us.....sounds like a strong foreign policy to me
