Outgoing US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said North Korea represented a ‘serious threat’, adding: ‘We’ve got to be prepared to deal with that. President Barack Obama said their ‘highly provocative acts’ threatened international peace.
Four years ago a newly minted President Obama assured us we had very little to fear in his new world of foreign policy. There was no longer a Soviet Union that could threaten our very existence and besides, as a Nobel Peace Prize winner he had the moral authority to reset our foreign policy….to make America loved, rather than feared. Unlike it had been during the Bush administration.
He proclaimed that Iran, Cuba and North Korea were tiny countries and wouldn't pose a serious threat to us.
What an idiot.
