Clashes between the two countries are not uncommon, but there has been an uneasy cease fire for years now. On Tuesday, North Korea accused the South of encroaching on its maritime bordernot true, but North Korea ignores international definitions of maritime bordersand sent a warship to confront the South Korean navy…who reduced the North Korean warship to a burning plank of wood in minutes.
North Korea has sent additional warships to confront the South, but no word yet on how this is being handled by the South Korean Navy, other than reports that the South is enriching its own forces in the area.
Sigh. How inconvenient. Here the President is so busy and all with pushing healthcare that he is now taking on the responsibilities of his increasingly useless Congress…to the point that he can only send a brief and awkward video clip to Berlin to commemorate the fall of the Berlin Wall, whereas every other nation on earth was represented by its respective President or Prime Minister. Okay, so now we have to stop all this to fly over to the region and kick start some diplomatic talks?
Couldnt he just send a video clip instead? Its bad enough he had to cut short his Tribal Nations Bake Sale to talk about an act of war committed by a known enemy against the troops at Fort Hood. The other day, he had to work until almost 6:30 at night!
The Czar is concerned that if all this outside crap keeps interrupting, it may be a long time before the President can show up on a television talk show, pick-up game of one-on-one, mall opening, or grade school talent night. All this domestic chaos and these foreign policy challenges are eating into his day. Isnt he supposed to have some czar or two who can handle all that executive crap?
