North Korea vows nuclear attack on US, as UN prepares to vote on sanctions

By
March 7, 2013

North Korea on Thursday vowed to launch a pre-emptive nuclear strike against the United States, amplifying its threatening rhetoric hours ahead of a vote by U.N. diplomats on whether to level new sanctions against Pyongyang for its recent nuclear test.

An unidentified spokesman for Pyongyang’s Foreign Ministry said the North will exercise its right for “a preemptive nuclear attack to destroy the strongholds of the aggressors” because Washington is pushing to start a nuclear war against the North.

    Another great victory for SoftPower(tm).

    Maybe this madness will finally get China to jerk the Nork’s chain, because Obama will do nothing.

    • Sanity says:

      This will be fun.

      What should Obama “do”? Specifically, processor?

      • Ragspierre says:

        This will be fun.

        How about something that works, instead of a policy that has failed world-wide for going on five years.

        Moron.

        • Sanity says:

          What would “work”, professor? Specifically.

          And how as “policy” “failed” world-wide going on five years? Specifically, genius.

        • Ragspierre's Mother says:

          Sorry, everyone, Rags was up all night cheering Ron Paul’s retarded son make stuff up about drones. You wouldn’t believe the stench coming from the basement this morning. The subject of drones gets Rags extra worked up; so much so, that he has taken to smearing his stool directly ON the computer Dennis got him for his birthday last year.

          Oh, dear, the screaming and slapping sounds from the basement have started again. Rags must have spotted another drone over the mini van, which he now makes me park down the street.

          Well, I’m off to the market for more bleach and adult diapers. I have several pallets of each on back-order that finally arrived.

          Both troll posts too stupid to warrant a response.

    Maybe HERE would be a cut in the DoD budget that would be OK…

    “A recently-released report by the NRC revealed the Department of Defense is spending upwards of 8 percent more on green certified buildings than conventional buildings for design and construction costs while reaping negligible, if not negative, energy rewards.”
    —PJMedia

    What’s funny is the NRC concludes that the DoD should keep its stupid “green goo” standards. I suppose to foster the doctrine of the witch-doctor religion of Gorebal Climate Thingy.

          BobintehCT, despite your lying, and attempt to confuse others here I have never asked Dan to ban you, much less made a “demand”.

          Dan has pulled down several of your sock-puppet posts, at his own volition.

  4. Ragspierre says:

    In response to questioning by Representative Jim Jordan (R., Ohio) of the House Oversight Committee, representatives from the Department of Education and Department of Transportation admitted that their recent dire warnings about the effects the sequester would have were not based on studies or data. According to deputy secretary of education Anthony Miller, the threat of “40,000 pink slips” for teachers was “an estimate,” but the department stands by this statement as an “impact it could have.”

    The inspector general of the Department of Transportation, Calvin Scovel III, also admitted that there were no “data or studies” supporting the warning from his department that major airports could experience 90-minute delays, but he maintained that it was still a “reasonable estimate.”
    —The Corner

    In other words, total bullshit by Obama and his Obamabanana Republic.

    As, apparently, the American people get.

  5. Ragspierre says:

    “But spending is also related to tax cuts,” said Pelosi. “Tax cuts are spending. Tax expenditures, they are called. Subsidies for big oil, subsidies to send jobs overseas, breaks to send jobs overseas, breaks for corporate jets. They are called tax expenditures. Spending money on tax breaks.”
    —Nanny Pelosi (Collective, CA)

    See, to the Collective, your money belongs to them. Allowing you to keep it is “spending” by government.

    BTW, remember the EEEEeeeeeevil private plane accelerated depreciation schedule (the “corporate jet loophole”) was passed by the Deemocrats as a “stimulus” item.

    That would be Rand Paul, the doctor of ophthalmology?

    Who was speaking to fundamental civil rights, as supported by several people on the Left who actually care more about civil liberties than crawling up Obama’s butt?

    • Sanity says:

      “hat would be Rand Paul, the doctor of ophthalmology?”

      Not according to the American Board of Ophthalmology, the board that certifies ophthalmologists. He’s “certified” by an organization he made up though – just like he made up Obama’s plan to kill Americans with drones.

      Oh, wait, this must be why you believe you’re a “trial attorney”.

      “Who was speaking to fundamental civil rights” ….

      Which right is that, professor? And how is said right under attack by president Obama? Specifically.

      • Ragspierre says:

        As usual, you prove yourself a hate-twisted liar who slurps up whatever the punk-meisters shot into your open mouth…

        Paul has held a state-issued medical license since moving to Bowling Green in 1993.[20] He received his first job from Dr. John Downing of Downing McPeak Vision Centers, which brought him to Bowling Green after completing his residency. Paul worked for Downing for about five years before parting ways. Afterwards, he went to work at the Gilbert Graves Clinic, a private medical group in Bowling Green, for 10 years before creating his own practice in a converted one-story house across the street from Downing’s office.[21] After his election to the U.S. Senate, Paul merged his practice with Downing’s medical practice.[22] Paul has had two malpractice lawsuits filed against him since 1993. Paul was cleared in one case and the other was settled for $50,000.[21] Regardless, his medical work has been praised by Downing and Paul has medical privileges at two Bowling Green hospitals.[20][21] Paul specializes in cataract and glaucoma surgeries, LASIK procedures, and corneal transplants.[12]

        In 1995, Paul passed the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO) boards on his first attempt and earned board-certification under the ABO for a decade. In 1997, to protest the ABO’s decision to grandfather in older ophthalmologists and not require them to recertify, Paul, along with 200 ophthalmologists formed the National Board of Ophthalmology (NBO).[23] Paul’s ophthalmology board is not officially recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). The NBO was incorporated in 1999, but Paul allowed it to be dissolved in 2000 after not filing the required paperwork with the Kentucky Secretary of State’s office. Paul later recreated the board in September 2005, three months before his certification from the ABO was scheduled to expire. His ABO certification lapsed on December 31, 2005. Paul has since been certified by the NBO.[20]

        As a member of the Bowling Green Noon Lions Club, Paul founded the Southern Kentucky Lions Eye Clinic to help provide eye surgery and exams for those who cannot afford to pay.[24] He is a regular presenter at the annual Men’s Health and Safety Day conference held by The Medical Center of Bowling Green since 1998.[25]

        • Sanity says:

          Hey, dummy, can you read your own Wikipedia cut-and-paste job?

          “His ABO certification lapsed on December 31, 2005. Paul has since been certified by the NBO.”

          That means he doesn’t have ABO certification, dip shit.

          And what does his being an ophthalmologist or not have to do with his making up stuff about drones for 13 hours on the senate floor?

      • Ragspierre says:

        Being board certified…or not…has no bearing on whether a doctor of ophthalmology is, in fact, a licensed doctor of ophthalology and a skilled practitioner.

        You moron.

        And, as is apparent, Dr. Paul was certified, which is a separate distinction earn, by the ABO.

      The Guardian:

      Guardian Rand Paul Filibuster

      Democrats Shamefully Silent on Obama Administration’s Assertion of Right to Assassinate Americans on U.S. Soil

      Rand Paul carried out a historic 13-hour filibuster of dronemaster-in-chief John Brennan’s nomination for CIA chief.

      Huffington Post slammed Democrats for being missing in action and progressive news host Cenk Uygur called Senator Paul a “constitutional hero”.

      One of the top constitutional law experts in the country – Jonathan Turley, a progressive liberal – writes:

      What was most striking about this principled stand is the virtual total absence of Democrats in speaking out against Obama. Just this week, Attorney General Eric Holder admitted that this policy could include killing citizens on U.S. soil with drones. Yet, the Democrats worked to stop not the kill list policy but Paul’s filibuster. Obama apologists have attacked Rand for some of his other positions to avoid dealing with the fact that Obama is claiming the powers of an Imperial President. I do not agree with Paul on many things, but I commend him for this stand and condemn those who remained silent, again, in the face of this authoritarian policy of Obama.

      ***

      The lack of opposition to Obama’s kill list policy is a national disgrace. It shows the triumph of a cult of personality within the Democratic ranks where both members and voters have chosen Obama over long-standing values of civil liberties that once defined their party.

        Well, you know, we ask a pretty important question, and that’s whether you get to pick and choose which parts of the Bill of Rights apply to American citizens. And, you know, the Fifth Amendment says you get a right to a trial, you get a right to due process. And we don’t think the president or any politician, Republican or Democrat, should get to choose when the Fifth Amendment applies. We also just weren’t satisfied with him when he said, “Well, I intend to not do this. I don’t intend to kill Americans.”

        The problem is, it’s sort of like indefinite detention. We can now detain American citizens without trial, and he says, “Well, I don’t intend to.” Well, his oath of office says, “I will preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution.” It doesn’t say, “I intend to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution.” So we want stronger language. We want him to admit it. We’re still talking to the White House today, and we’re not gonna let the nomination go forward in any expeditious fashion unless he will answer the question directly.

  16. Ragspierre says:

    On the plane home I read a piece by Mort Zuckerman, who’s emerged as one of the most persuasive and eloquent critics of the president’s economic policy. The unemployment picture is worse than people understand, he explained in U.S. News & World Report. The jobless rate, officially 7.9%, is almost twice that if you include those who have stopped looking, work part time, or are only “marginally attached” to the workforce. “The labor force participation rate . . . has dropped to the lowest level since 1984,” Mr. Zuckerman noted. “It is harder to find work today than it has been in any previous recession.”

    Meanwhile, the president is stuck in his games and his history. He should have seen unemployment entering a crisis stage four years ago, and he did not.
    —Peggy Noonan, former Obama supporter

    How many times has Obama said jobs were his number one priority…???

    Obama made it worse.

  17. Ragspierre says:

    I’m sure that doesn’t surprise anyone particularly. A) it’s Obama and B) he’s a politician who has yet to quit campaigning (mostly because he hasn’t a clue how to govern).

    What am I talking about? His attempt to claim responsibility for the fact that fossil fuel production is up under his watch and he’s somehow responsible for that.

    Yes, it is, but that has absolutely nothing to do with him or his policies. The Congressional Research Service has apparently made that official now:

    The Congressional Research Service has released a report finding that, as was already generally known, U.S. oil and gas production has increased substantially over the past four years, but on private lands only, while it’s actually declined on federal land.

    Or said another way, where Obama had control and the opportunity to do what he is claiming, he declined that opportunity and in fact impeded further exploration and production with his policies. Where he had no real control, production boomed. Federal lands – nada. Private lands – bunches and bunches.

TheDC also vetted the source who brought the women forward, and reconfirmed details with that source after The Washington Post’s story broke Monday.//

    Haha, “some elements” + “no schedule” + “plane we totally think he might have been on” + “trust us” = credibility!!

    This is why no one sane pays attention to what the “conservative” media says. It’s because you’re liars, hacks, and morons.

  21. Ragspierre says:

    Moreover, as Attorney General Holder must know, by proceeding with this civilian prosecution in New York at the very moment when KSM and the other 9/11 defendants are facing a military commission at Gitmo, he has given KSM & Co. an exquisite legal argument that proceeding with their military commission would be arbitrary and unjust in light of the grade-A due process Abu Ghayth is getting. That is, the government is virtually inviting the federal courts to invalidate military commissions — which was a top goal of many Obama administration lawyers back when they were in private practice, volunteering their services to terrorist detainees.

    Hopefully, Congress will see to it this contemptuous crap by Holder is reversed.

        How compelling. You, Tucker, and Andy, and O’Queef are the best and brightest of the “conservative” movement.

        Let that sink in.

            I enjoy when you question me. I get to punk you out AGAIN.

            I have never made an appeal to my authority that I can recall. I HAVE told you what the law is, what economics say, what sound management would be, but that is always prone to your own confirmation.

            Which you won’t do.

            I NEVER ask anyone to rely on my word alone. I regularly enjoin you to research. You like teh stupid.

    “Did you read the McCarthy post on The Corner?”

    You mean the one you failed to cite? As usual?

    “McCarthy has written extensively…as have others…on the reasons for putting terrorists on trial by military tribunals over the years.”

    Ah, appealing to Andy’s supposed authority. I wonder why he doesnt discuss it in the opinion piece you dont cite ….

    “If you are unaware of the rationale, I am aware of it.”

    Hahaha. We all tremble at your preening authority. We’re all dying for you to demonstrate that you’re actually aware of anything you insist on being an authority in. One of these days, maybe. Forgive us, if we’re not willing to take your word for it.

    • Ragspierre says:

      I don’t give a flying fluck what you do.

      AND it is instructive to readers of the thread.

      Which is really your sole utility, liar.

      • Tex Detriot says:

        “I don’t give a flying fluck what you do.”

        Which is why you appeal to your own supposed authority in every instance in which your assertions of fact are challenged – rather than providing a shred of evidence.

        “It is fun…and remarkably easy…to punk you morons here.”

        That’s really funny. “Punking” people by never showing your work.

    While President Barack Obama has spent weeks warning of the dark consequences of across-the-board budget cuts, there’s one area of government where his staff has failed to calculate their impact: the White House itself.
    —Bloomberg

    Well, there ARE the White House tours.

    Targeting the kiddies first.

    Way to go, Pres. Freakout.

  25. Ragspierre says:

    Republicans have written a letter to ask for sufficient time to read, debate, and amend the budget. The letter is signed by all ten Republicans on the Senate Budget Committee, and addressed directly to Murray.

    “An unfortunate trend in recent years … has been for the Committee to introduce, amend, and report out a budget resolution in less than 48 hours–hardly sufficient time for the public of the Committee to read, analyze and debate its content. In the more distant past, when the budget process was a serious and thoughtful exercise, committee deliberations would often consume an entire week,” the senators stipulate.

    The senators on the minority side make two simple requests of the committee chair:

    The first is that Murray “Post the Chairman’s Mark online (both legislative text and tables) no later than three days before the Committee convenes for markup.” The senators believe that “This would allow every member of the Committee and public–including citizens beyond Washington, D.C.–to consider the proposal and ask questions.”

    The second request is to “Extend the time allotted for amendments.” They add, “In the recent, the Chairman has allocated only one calendar day for amendments to the budget resolution. As a result, the debate time for each amendment has been truncated and over time, markup has denigrated into partisan sniping and ‘gotcha’ amendments.”
    —Weekly Standard

    Dunno about Murry, but most of the Deemocrats are totally uninterested in a budget.

    Too restrictive and revealing.

    Saaaayyy…. Where is that Pres. Freakout budget…???

  26. Tex Detriot says:

    It gets funnier for the DC:

    The Daily Caller reported it has not been able to contact Nexis de los Santos Santana, the Dominican escort who has said she was paid to say she had sex with Menendez for money. The Daily Caller also said it has not been able to reach Miguel Galvan, a Dominical lawyer allegedly involved in the scheme.

    So, the people who would be able to corroborate the story, weren’t contacted by the DC.

    • Ragspierre says:

      “The Daily Caller reported it has not been able to contact Nexis de los Santos Santana…”

      Yes, you idiot.

      Because THAT is the WaPo “source”.

      The DC doesn’t NEED to corroborate her story. She is NOT their source.

      Gawd, you are fun to punk…!!!!

      • Tex Detriot says:

        This is brilliant wingnuttery.

        We only have to confirm things from OUR sources, i.e. the people we pay to say stuff.

        If someone else says “nope” we don’t have to talk to her because we didn’t pay her.

        Are you still wondering why sane people don’t pay attention to the Teabagger media? You make stuff up, and then when others provide evidence that you are flatly wrong, you ignore them because they dont agree with what you say.

        Brilliant wingnuttery.

        • Ragspierre says:

          I’m just going to let that lil’ bag of crap hang there, for all to laugh at as they read.

            That’s really funny. No, you won’t put up for examination the material you say supports your position. Ever. So there!

          • Ragspierre says:

    We know this. Because you cannot. You, like your fellow collectivists are unable to prove your beliefs because they exist outside of reality.

      OH, pleeeeeeze.

      You are the Collectivist moron here, and you daily deny reality. You HAVE to in order to maintain your delusions.

      What people who can read know is that I provide all that is needed to investigate what I say…

      and you are such a lazy BOS you can’t be bothered to even investigate the loads your punk-meisters shoot in your eager gob every day.

    Pres. Freakout has stood in the way long enough.

  31. Ragspierre says:

    The Dow is at a high because there is so much money chasing so few investments, the result of QE~ and massive uncertainty caused by the Obamic Decline. Check out a chart showing the Dow against gold in real dollars, moron.

    Unemployment dropped .02%…not two percent… Hu. Zah. The labor participation rate shows record lows. The REAL unemployment rate is roughly double 7.7%

    bin Laden is dead. So are an American ambassador and three other people we had in Benghazi, and NOBODY…not terrorists, not State, not DoD…NOBODY…has been made accountable.

    And Pres. Sleeper went to bed, never called, never checked, never did shit to show the least concern, while knowing our people were under attack.

    I would say Obama has made it worse. And that is not a tiny fraction of what he’s made worse.

    • Ragspierre says:

      BoooOOoobsintehCT/UnSanity/Tex Det…

      your sock-puppet act is old and busted.

      But mostly stupid.

  32. Ragspierre says:

    Reality is teaching the propeller-heads a lesson. Despite President Obama promising that his plan would not add “one dime” to the deficit, the Government Accountability Office announced last week that it would more likely add 620,000,000,000,000 dimes (or $6.2 trillion) over 75 years.

    Obama also promised that “if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan.” Estimates for how many Americans will lose their existing plans vary. The CBO says 5 million to 20 million. The consulting firm McKinsey & Co. says about 30% of employers will push workers onto the public system.

    Even the AFL-CIO and the Teamsters have started to freak out over the gold-plated benefits many of their members will lose, thanks to the guy they helped reelect. Another irony: While the president rode to reelection hyping a mythical GOP “war on women,” incentives to drop spouses from employee coverage under his plan will only increase, a particular concern for mothers with small kids. The good news is that if they keep their coverage, it will cover birth control pills.

    Meanwhile, not just Taco Bell and Wendy’s are demoting many full-time workers to part-time work. Some of Obama’s core constituencies — universities and state governments — are cutting hours. For instance, Stark State College in Ohio sent a letter to faculty saying that “to avoid penalties under the Affordable Care Act … employees with part-time or adjunct status will not be assigned more than an average of 29 hours per week.”

    Virtually all of these problems and many others were predicted by conservatives, but the media rolled their collective eyes in response.
    —Jonah Goldberg

    Yep. Obama lies constantly. It is who he is.
