North Korea, McCain Speaks up

I'm not much of a John McCain fan but if things heat up much more between North and South Korea it would be interesting to hear what McCain has to say. I don't think this is going to escalate to full-scale war; it's one more "pay-attention-to-me" ploy by North Korea because it needs money, or rice, to last through the winter. I wonder if the harvest was bad.

China will be a BIG loser if there is a full-scale war and I think they'll put the kibosh on this right quick if there is any major troop movement.

McCain speaking up will provide US voters with a comparison. The voters chose Obama, who is now weak for a whole slew of reasons -- the ongoing TSA mess -- among them. McCain speaking on the issue would remind people of their choice in 2008 and would, for many people, cement the idea that America cannot afford Obama having a second term.

This is an overtly political calculation on my part, one I usually do not support, but I feel that Obama and his socialist progressive policies are harming, purposefully harming the United States. It's time for this man, and the policies which he represents, to be taken out politically. One of the interesting ramifications of such a move by McCain would be that it would dramatically harm Palin's chances in 2012. She, as with Obama, doesn't have the necessary experience to deal with the presidency. The fact that she has more experience than Obama doesn't mean that she has enough to be President of the United States.

McCain is famously known for holding grudges. We're told that he doesn't like either Obama or Palin. Hmmm. I wonder what he and his advisors are thinking about?

How do you know that China isn't pulling Korea's strings and making this happen?

I don't know if China is pulling N.Korea's strings. That might be what's happening. If that's the case then they're testing Obama to see what he'll do; but in that case North Korea will not launch a major attack on South Korea.
