    When President Bush II mentioned the evil axis powers, these were two of those countries that have supported each other in their quest for power. We keep on skirting around the leaders in Korea whether the grandfather, father and now son. We have been a presence in the area but North Korea knows our military is withdrawing and drawing down. Sequester has caused the US Air Force to ground 1/3 of it's aircraft to make a point to the people and Congress. We are more vulnerable in Kim's mind or mentality. He has so many Generals around him to show his strength as he listens to their counsel and guidance.

    We have actually made him stronger in how we deal with him and negotiate in the past. We have countries all around the world that are unhappy with our country and with our President making comments all around the world about how bad our country has been, that opens doors for leaders to throw darts and even missiles.

    Our President got the Nobel Peace Prize before he took office. That sends a message to the world. How Senator from Illinois get World Peace? He wasn't in the UN.

    This is exactly why we should never allow small rogue governments (i.e. Iran and N. Korea) to ever get to the point of having nuclear weapon capabilities. We dilly-dally along with a lot of talk and invoke a few inconveniences on them while they continue unabated in developing their nuclear capabilities, until alas, it becomes too late. They can then hold us hostage for huge sums of aid or other such concessions.
    As a government, we should learn a lesson from this and immediately muzzle a little dog up, before it learns to bite.
