It seems only Fair…
The Obama Administration has allowed North Korea to develop theirs.
And now we’re allowing Iran to develop theirs.
To any Objective Progressive Observer, the calm, peaceful and reasoned approach to government exhibited by both North Korea and Iran is clearly mirrored by the Government of Iraq.
So let’s just cut to the chase and send the technology directly. That way the Iraqi’s are not faced with having to play ‘catch up’ with the other Nations in the Region.
Shoot… why not just give them the Nukes?
As I listen to myself tap this out it seems almost silly to place such a development burden on the Iraqi people. The expense alone would hinder their ability to compete with their neighbors. And the allocation of the funds necessary would create an undue hardship for the citizens who would not have access to basic needs and services.
I say we just start shipping them directly out of our stockpile. We can promote the reduction of our weapons while ‘keeping the playing field even’ for an area of the world known for its stability.
Problem Solved. (Just like in Benghazi.)
(Hey John, go ahead and use my idea. I won’t tell anyone. You can buy me a beer at your bosses next summit.)
Where Oh Where Could You Be?
Why would Anyone Want One?
Well, if you’re a Terrorist A-hole, or a country that Love’s Them, an intact 777 could be very useful.
We have demonstrated a reluctance to shoot down Airliners… for reasons most of us can understand. That is not a mistake most of us would want to have stored in our minds. Would You want to be That Guy?
So let’s pretend you have a weapon… let’s make it a big one like a Nuke. You know that a Missile can be tracked to it’s origin… but Airliners are everywhere all the time.
Let’s now pretend that you REALLY want to send your Weapon somewhere and set it off. But you’re not so interested in having other people who have Weapons knowing for sure where it came from.
Ok… we’ll go back for a minute. If you’re a terrorist A-hole, or Country that Loves Them, the odds are your Weapon is not the most advanced type. It’s probably Big and possibly Fragile. Even An Aspiring A-Hole might recognize you would need a means of delivery that was Big Enough and Gentle Enough to get your Weapon to where you wanted it to go. FedEx will not work in this case.
It would also be a Hugh Benefit if the place you wanted to send it was loathe to blow it out of the sky. Hmmmm….
Throw in the fact that just like Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, Close Counts. (We’re talking about a Nuke here…)
Just Chew on that for a little while and then read about what the Israeli’s are thinking…
(In the End, Flight 370 was hi-jacked because it was loaded with $370 Million in Bit Coin. Find the Plane… Find the Bit Coin.)
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.
