Hillary Clinton should send her campaign bluster about North Korea's H-bomb to Barack Obama--and herself

Hillary Clinton has roundly condemned North Korea's claimed successful testing of a hydrogen bomb--the most powerful kind of nuclear weapon. In her statement she said that North Korea "...must have no doubt that we will take whatever steps are necessary to defend ourselves and our treaty allies."

We can't give in to or in any way encourage this kind of bullying.  Instead, we should increase pressure and send Pyongyang an unmistakable message that its nuclear brinksmanship won't succeed.

The United States and our partners, including the UN Security Council, need to immediately impose additional sanctions against NorthKorea.  The Chinese government, which wields influence with the North Koreans, must be more assertive in deterring the North's irresponsible actions, and it should take actions to halt prohibited activities transpiring across its borders or its firms that participate in illicit trade or proliferation will have to face sanctions.  We should also work with our work with our allies to strengthen our missile defenses.

This is a joke, right? If NorthKorea truly has an H-bomb, who else should she blame other than herself as Secretary of State and her boss, President Barack Obama? And now she has the brass to take credit for the administration's "pivot to Asia." What irony. What crap.

Here are some comments that call her out for her hypocrisy:

  • And what would the Republican candidate leading in the polls, Trump, do with the lunatic with the bad haircut?

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Well, I guess we'd have our own lunatic on the case. And nuclear war for sure.

  • In reply to Dennis Byrne:

    Is that a 'fer sure'? Dennis stop, your embarrassing yourself. How long have you been shilling for establishment politicians that have literally sold this country 'down the river'? *fer intentional.

    I get it. I backed a lot of guys that proved they were a bunch of 'car salesmen' too and it smarts. But to continue to double down your money after you didn't get what you paid for, is nothing short of cowardice. At least Aquinas has his heart in the right place, you are just suffering your pride.

  • Bill Clinton had them contained, Bush withdrew that talked tough and allowed them to develop a nuclear weapon, where was Dennis the ignorant then? By the way it's not any stronger than their last test, Dennis tends to believe whatever North Korea says, like Dennis Rodman.
