Freeps on Bush's press conference: "We can't simply attak NK"


To: Mr Rogers

The US doesn't have the stomach

You know, the real Mr. Rogers wasn't a whiny little wuss. We have the stomach, or we wouldn't be in Iraq and Afghanistan right now. We can't simply attak NK without sacrificing hundreds of thousands (at least) of South Koreans. I don't have the stomach for that, either. Your Kommando Keyboard might. The likely price tag for SK limits our options -- but it doesn't close them out. Regime change is the way to address this problem. Li'l Kim is a marked man.

What did Kristol say (for those without TVs)?

I didn't catch the whole thing, but he suggested something about getting China to open its border with North Korea and allow refugees. We would feed and shelter them.

"female reporter blaming Bush..no one mentions the rapist...damn"

The biggest part of the news media exists for one purpose only, and that is to elect Democrats. If a reporter was to ask Clinton what he did about a nuclear North Korea, we'd get more red-faced finger pointing. And the knee pad wearing news media would go along with it.

To: Steel Wolf

The deaths of a couple of million South Koreans, for instance? The steel fist is an empty threat, and the North Koreans know it.

I fully agree that the options are limited in that sense. But it doesn't mean we have no options. A steel fist doesn't necessarily mean mounting an invasion. There are less overt ways to take direct action, and I suspect those will start soon. I'm thinking things like infiltration teams for assassinations and sabotage -- and Li'l Kim's fuzzy head on a platter. Take out the regime, and the rest of NK will roll over.

A lesson we learned well in Iraq...oh, wait...

These idiots never learn.

3. I will thank God every single day that I don't have to go through
life as severely emotionally and intellectually deprived and undeveloped as that bunch of numbskulls.

4. Simple solutions from simple minds....
Freeptards are a reflection of their simpleton pResident, Little Monkey. They never think things through and they always grasp the first solution that pops into their childlike brains.

5. the disconnect from reality is shocking sometimes
"The biggest part of the news media exists for one purpose only, and that is to elect Democrats."

What planet does that guy live on? I mean, I realize that since they think Saddam caused 9/11, and that creation is a proven fact that I should not be surprised, but.... wtf? I can't stand to watch/listen to most of our media because it has so much right-leaning bias and gives Bush a free pass. Heck, I'd prefer a balanced media - I don't mind if they attack equally anyone who is doing wrong regardless of party since that would be their jobs.....

It's all Clinton's fault. You can't expect Bush to have accomplished something, he's only had 6 years, after all. Clinton had 5 years after NK started to go nuclear, and it's all his fault. Obviously, Bush couldn't do something in 6 years that Clinton couldn't do in 5, what do you take him for? competent or something?

8. The media...
Giving repukes control of the House, the Senate, and the presidency, total power, is a vast LEFT WING CONSPIRACY!

And it worked in proving the Right shouldn't have power.
