Resting time for Obama till Republicans come to power... say after seven years.

Obama and USA ain't going to test anyone for next 7 years, GOP Hawks are taking a 7 year holiday. They are dreaming of Year 2017.

They should bomb Iranian nuclear facilities before it is too late. Negotiation with the Iranian-leadership liers is meaningless. They have been killing so much time already spending billions on nuclear technologies while their main oil income industry is suffering from under-development. Who is so blind to believe a word they say? Only a regime change will guarantee the safety of the world around Iranian borders.

At stake with both Iran and North Korea is the risk of an eventual nuclear confrontation.

Sounds like a good solution right there. Let those two go at it.

hehe, yeah the Americans are the right guys for the job, right? With the Stars and Stripes behind it! Bomb the dirty B**tards before they bomb us. We'll ask questions later. While were at it we'll bomb N. Korea, too. They've been a thorn in the side of the USA, democracy, equailty and the American Way for years. 'Bout time they were taught a hard lesson they'll never forget.

Where next? Russia? France? Why stop there?

Sooner the USA is the only nuclear power on this planet, the better it'll be for all of us, then we can settle down to TOTALLY dominating the world militarilly, culturally and econoicaly. Anyone don't agree, bomb 'em 'till they do.

North Korea knows a weak leader when it sees one. They have conducted more missile tests during Obama's first six months in office then was done in all of Mr. Bush's eight years as U.S. President.

haha!

Seriously though, I think Obama could make real progress. Bush only liked to invade countries that couldn't fight back. The reason Bush didn't attack North Korea is 'cos North Korea could put up a fight, a deadly one at that.

I think Obama stands more chance of negotiating with North Korea than he does Iran though. I've often thought Kim Jong Il is not in control over there anymore, rather he is a puppet being controlled by hawks, but it'll be intereting to see how this one unfolds. I think it'd be great for Obama to make a personal visit to North Korea.

Fanz75,

the later part of the title is very appropriate.

Obama once again is cleaning up the massive failures of the bush administration in NK. It was bush that pushed NK to test the bomb. Massive failure. Massive.

Obama has been in office now six months and has not started a new war based on lies as we saw in the last eight years. That is a huge success by comparison. If bush had gone to NK to get the journalists out a few weeks ago he would started a war by now. Instead Clinton fixed the problem in a couple of hours.

[North Korea has] conducted more missile tests during Obama's first six months in office then was done in all of Mr. Bush's eight years as U.S. President.

And yet, the fact will always remain that, despite all the tough talk, despite his "axix of Evil" bravado, despite a foreign policy approach that can best be described as "hold my breath until I get my way," North Korea still managed to successfully test their first nuclear weapon on -- wait for it -- Bush's watch. Nice try, Romeo, but you still sound petulant and whiny -- as usual.
