00Newt to the rescue!
Newt Gingrich told Fox News Sunday that he would have disabled the long-range missile before North Korea launched it, saying too many people do not appreciate the scale of the threat that is evolving on the planet.

There are three or four techniques that could have been used, from unconventional forces to standoff capabilities ... Id recommend, look at electromagnetic pulse ..."

5. "electromagentic Pulse"
Newt says we should ahve nuked 'em, because that's where you get electromagnetic pulse. It's never been developed as a weapon. Labs can produce electromagentic pulse in order to test avionics, however, the required equipment to do such a test is not portable in the least.

So Newt says we should have nuked North Korea before the (unsuccessful) launch.

6. Riding in on a white horse, resplendent in his white coordinated
outfit topped with a white ten gallon hat, candidate for president Newt Gingerich today lassooed and pulled back to earth a North Korean missile. Arriving just as the missile began to lift off, Mr. Gingerich ignored the fire of the engine and captured the closest tailfin and the with a mighty effort, pulled the missile down.
"'Twarn't nothing any candidate for president wouldn't do for his country" Gingerich drawled in an 'aw shucks' manner.

11. Then he headed off to the saloon for a sasparilla
Blithering Idiots on Parade; this is why we can't have intelligent discourse on teevee. We need to give time to Newt.

7. Wow, what a brilliant plan!
EMP's of that magnitude can easily be produced.

You merely have to detonate a nuclear device (or a shit load of TNT) within a few hundred miles of your target.

I don't think anyone in the region would mind that, right Newt?

9. Didn't you people see Ocean's Eleven?
We just needed to sneak Don Cheadle into N Korea, while George and Brad distracted Kim Jong.

17. OK, to make that work
would Newt have to speak in a fake British accent?

:shrug:

I mean, assuming Don Cheadle is not available.
