So now for the world to see… including Joe Biden who assured us during the debates it wasn’t true… the North Koreans successfully launched a long-range ballistic missile capable of carrying a payload.
Our current Administration should be applauding this achievement because of its inherent “fairness”. Why should a country be denied a seat at the table just because they’re a belligerent Communist Dictatorship? Right?
There are ancillary benefits to this launch however. This event gave us, the U.S., an opportunity to analyze the second and third stages of this missile which assuredly allowed us to determine where the technology originated from… most likely Los Alamos, but I digress.
So we know more, the world knows more and it’s possible Joe Biden knows more although the jury is out on that.
I realize there must be an upside to this somewhere, just as there was an upside to our driving a stealth drone into Iran and landing it in recoverable condition… wait, may be not. Give me time, I’ll think of something.
Until then, I’ll wait for the apologies from the Left regarding the Axis of Evil speech they so roundly criticized during the Bush Administration.
And finally… yes Mr. Vice President, the North Koreans can kill Santa Clause. The UN has been sending them sternly worded letters for years.
