Obama Refuses to “Destroy” North Korea for “Humanitarian” Reasons

Oh, I’m sure:

U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday said his country has the military means to destroy North Korea but it will not do so due to the humanitarian cost and the impact on neighbor South Korea.

Obama was interviewed by CBS presenter Charlie Rose during a trip to Germany. Obama said North Korea is “erratic enough” and the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un, is “irresponsible enough that we don’t want them getting close.”

“We could, obviously, destroy North Korea with our arsenals… But aside from the humanitarian costs of that, they are right next door to our vital ally,” South Korea, he added.

And what will not doing anything do, Obama?

The dam will burst sooner or later and China will go out of its way not to help the North Koreans it forcibly returned to its vassal state.

Whatever will Obama do if courts rule that the Philippines and not China has legitimate claims in the South China Sea?

(Insert own “Obama is a lying sack of shtacko and a shiftless coward” comment here.)

    I have a new “theory of everything” that explains much.
    China, due to their huge cash surplus, are BUYING Westren politicians at an alarming rate, and this explains Obama’s (and others) lack of action on this front, as well as others.
    We do know that they funneled huge amounts of cash to the Clintons, Al Gore, as well as others.
    What makes anyone think that they have stopped?

    • Anything is possible.

      I suspect that petrodollars from middle eastern, islamic nations
      have similarly bought the influence of many western politicians.

      How else to explain European, Canadian and American politicians’
      obstinate Merkeling of their populations with muslim immigrants,
      in spite of their own laws, their citizens’ wishes, and common sense?

    Might be a biggie.

    “America First” is what he’s calling it.

    If you destroy NK by military means, then the neighboring countries will have to bear the load of millions of putatively mentally ill refugees. South Korea would probably be leveled by mortar fire, and possibly nuclear fallout.

    The best solution (which sucks) is to allow the regime to implode, and it will. I know many will suffer as a result, but not as many as a war in the region against deranged psychopaths.
