Tough Talk Is Still Talk

Now show 'em your mad face, Bob!Well now we are mad.

The US warns North Korea not to launch a rocket over Japan. And we warn them not to do any more nuclear tests.

Okay, well, this time, SecDef Gates says that if North Korea lets any nuclear technology out of the country, the US will hold North Korea “fully accountable.”

Translation: and if you do it again, we will totally hold you to blame.

The Czar’s advice: do not bother with this oy-it’ll-be-on-your-head finger wagging. They know full well you won’t do anything. Not a thing. North Korea has not suddenly and inexplicably gotten crazier. No: pragmatically, they have watched the POTUS bow to Saudi royalty, join a book club with Hugo Chavez, offer to reason with an Iranian scumbag who openly wants to kill every Jew and Westerner with nuclear weapons, let Chinese fishermen overwhelm a Navy ship, and apologize to any remaining Nazis if they felt we were a little too rough on them way back when.

Bullies know a pushover when they see one. You have made them stronger.

Suggestion: next time North Korea blatantly flips the bird to the United States, threaten to call the cops on ‘em.

About The Czar of Muscovy

Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia by upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
