An Ominous Occurrence

No, Madeleine Albright isn't congratulating Kim Jong Il on yesterday's successful nuclear test

Much of the United States woke to the news that, with a successful test of a nuclear bomb, madman Kim Jung Il has come one step closer to possessing nukes.

Predictably, Democrats are trying to spin the occurrence for their own political benefit, seemingly ignorant of the history of the Clinton years. It's just one more opportunity to ask them: What would you do? Specifics, please. Spare us the predictable twaddle about how a Democrat could "unite the world" against the threat, blah, blah, blah. The UN Security Council is in complete agreement that North Korea's behavior is unacceptable -- the problem, as every thinking person knows, is actually getting it to take some action.

In the meantime, as this thoughtful piece from Josh Manchester points out, the United States and its allies on the Korean peninsula have been hard at work, with some success.

It does tend to put Mark Foley and his salacious instant messages into perspective, doesn't it?

It irrelevant now who's "fault" it is that North Korea has nuclear capabilities. The main questions is which party in America is more focused on defending America from foreign invasion, and which is more focused on saying, "told you so, you have gays too"?

Democrats platform is gay marriage, abortion, more welfare, increased minimum wage, less free commerce.

Yep, I think I'll vote for Republicans.
