Do you think that if North Korea follows thru on it's threat to fire a long range rocket twards Hiwaii, will Nobama have the balls to shoot the rocket down over the ocean?? Me I don't know, I know if it was his muslim buddies from Iran he wouldn't but North Korea guess it depends what China and Putin say behind the scenes.

I can't imagine that the man is stupid enough to believe that he can shot the missle and a war not be started. I think that he may want the war to start but he wants the U.S. to start it so he can look like a "victim"..."oh look, I was just 'testing' and the Americans started war"....meanwhile - that is what he wanted. It's not about having balls....it's about not having a brain or a love for his own people. He doesn't mind that we'll go to war and his people will be harmed.

I don't know folks, I go back and forth on this but I wouldn't be surprised if we just write him another nasty letter with more sanctions.

Muslim buddies from Iran? LOL. Seriously...LOL. Aside from the fact that he is Christian and has no "Iran buddies", you do realize that Iran is a religious regime and North Korea is an atheist Communist Regime. The idea that Iran would support North Korea on anything is ridiculous. I wasn't aware that it took balls to shoot down a rocket. Usually you use a missile or other such projectile. I'm also aware that presidents who are democrat have always fought back when the US has been attacked. What makes a person think that Obama would just watch as a missile comes toward the US?

"Muslim buddies from Iran" Well yeh, he was all of the sudden proud of his roots when he went over there on his bash america first tour, during the campaign if you brought up his muslim roots you were called a racist and everything, Just saying, I may be wrong.

Foursox, North Korea has played this game for decades, they make threats and the leader of the US gives them a token portion of what they want and it shuts them up. Both Clinton, and Bush did the same thing. North Korea doesn't have the balls to launch a rocket near the United States, or they would be just a memory of a nation.

I would be extremely surprised if Obama ordered the racket shot down. He thinks of himself as a world peacemaker, regardless of what is best for the people of this country. So he will have some meaningless, slap-on-the-wrist reply to the North Korean president, who of course will get bolder when he sees that his act of aggression didn't get a retaliation.

Having the "balls to shoot it down over the ocean" really isn't in question. Between the US and Russian Naval pressence in the area, any such rocket is going down. The question is: What do we do then? Normally, such an action would be an act of war. Whoever that thing is shot toward would be expected to declare war back. Given the current state of international politics we are probably looking at a very different response. The US, China and Russia will have a long talk and decide on some whimpy sanctions. Personally, quite against my normal nature, I am in favor of shooting a rocket at anyone who shoots at us. We have the technology to take out just the insane leaders of the country and minimize civilian casualties so the people of North Korea could thank us later.
