Obama: North Korea's crisis-for-concession days 'over'

Source: BBC

North Korea will no longer be rewarded for provocative behaviour, US President Barack Obama has said at a joint news conference with South Korea's leader.

Flanked by President Park Geun-hye, Mr Obama told a White House briefing North Korea was more isolated than ever.

Ms Park is on her first foreign trip since taking office in February.

Ahead of their meeting, US officials said North Korea had moved two medium-range missiles from a coastal launch site, lowering tensions.

3. His Own People Are Not the Only Hostages

He is also holding the population of Seoul, Tokyo, and Honolulu hostage as well.
If we "strike at them" he will nuke those places, obviously.

Of course we would then turn his country into glass, but if the imperious leader is going down, what does he care if his country goes down with him?

5. Meanwhile, this from the KCNA...

http://www.kcna.co.jp/index-e.htm

"...Respected Marshal Kim Jong Un's line on simultaneously building up the economy and nuclear forces serves as a guarantee for achieving national reunification and finishing the building of a thriving socialist nation at an earliest date..."

So, they believe that having nuclear weapons will ensure national unification? No wonder the South Koreans are concerned.

6. This could all end by giving the chubby little gangster a couple of $B and a basketball team in


Switzerland. He did most of his growing up there anyway. He probably hates N Korea more than the S Koreans do.
