The Hermit Kingdom And Mourning In America

                Referring to “gangster-like U.S. imperialists,” North Korea said it won’t agree to talks with the United States and is instead now focused on its ability to destroy the country with conventional, nuclear and cyber-warfare attacks.
                Well, I’m sure those talks would have been serious and heartfelt on the Hermit Kingdom’s side.
                Kim Jong Un’s government accused the U.S. of “inching closer to the stage of igniting a war of aggression” by, among other things, predicting the collapse of the regime. Putinesque!
                Just as Poland started the war of aggression against Germany in World War II.
                This statement by North Korea didn’t make the front page of most newspapers in the U.S. and, in fact, didn’t generate much of a stir at all, as no one takes the regime seriously. Who really believes that North Korea could ever make good on such threats?
                Yet, think about how far the U.S. has fallen in terms of prestige and respect…in just a few years.  Obama’s “stewardship” of the United States has led directly to both Russia and China  becoming ever more bellicose…to their neighbors and to the U.S. itself. Iran claims the U.S. is “afraid” of them and has agreed to proceed with talks about Iran’s  nuclear program out of weakness. They are right.  And now an impoverished little country, with the majority of its people starving, openly states it won’t agree to talk about its nuclear program and instead seeks to destroy the U.S.
                Get in line.
                It is not “morning in America” anymore.
                It should be “mourning in America” to anyone paying attention.
