Just to offer both sides of the story, Kim Jong Il is claiming these are only airplane contrails:

No doubt the obligatory “strongly worded letter” is being drafted as we speak:

North and South Korea exchanged artillery fire on Tuesday after dozens of shells fired from the North struck a South Korean island near the countries’ disputed maritime border, South Korean military officials said. Two South Korean soldiers were killed, 15 were wounded and three civilians were injured, said Kiyheon Kwon, an official at the Defense Ministry.

The South Korean military went to “crisis status,” and fighter planes were put on alert but did not take off.

Michelle Malkin reminds everybody of what Joe Biden said in October of 2008:

Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”

Obama has received his 3am phone call (actually it was 4am — TOTUS came running in with “WAKE UP!!” on its screen). The Chi-Coms will no doubt side with Kim Jong Mentally Il, so how might Obama respond when China tests his mettle?

I thought so.

Then there’s the problem of US debt held by China that paralyzes the United States ability to go take out that pajama-clad lunatic in Pyongyang:

Our government’s financial irresponsibility is possibly our greatest national security threat, which the Pentagon seems well aware of — and so does Kim Jong Il:

    "a generated crisis" ( Was Sheriff Joe using 'fabricated' and 'generated' interchangeably? ) Doesn't appear to be anything fabricated about 'those' contrails? Gotta' admire the composure of the S. Koreans, you'd think they were watching a fireworks display.

    Doug, this is the very nightmare scenario Bubble-bloggers have been talking about since 2006. Our government's total inability to respond to global threats due to financial conflicts. The only reprieve between us and a banana republic today is… our military! Without a 'credible' military, this would be game over for us. Mark this day on your calendars folks. The Day the U.S Almost Got Pwned. Not to say it couldn't happen tomorrow.

    As far as Obama? Paralysis Complete! ( Can the patient communicate by 'blinking'? No, I'm afraid not ) All we can do for him now is position his wheelchair into the sunlight a few hours a day. Finally…. gettin' some sunlight huh?

    S.Korea could always bomb the North,dropping Kia’s and Huyndai’s…in the dark,of course.

    This is all an illusion, as Jimmy Carter

    and Bill Crinton made friends with Kimmy J. in the ’90s.

    I'm sure Barry will soon be out apologizing to N. Korea, blaming S. Korea and will probably talk some smack about Israelis & Americans too for good measure.

    "will soon be out"

    I've no doubt he already has. Nothing that would show up on the radar of course.

    While most would say "You make your 'own' luck!", to a degree that true, but it's not 'infinite' either.

    Just my nature but, I'm the most freaked when "things just couldn't be going -better-!" That's when you need to REALLY worry. Barry had a run of luck that would have made Joe Dimaggio jealous. Just incredible, perhaps unprecedented.

    Hate to be the one ta' break it to ya', but the Luck Gods want it BACK! I'm convinced that when you throw out "the high score and the low score" ( Bill Gates on one extreme, Afghan goat-herder on the other ) we ALL get basically the same ration of good fortune. It's just a matter of how/when you plead for it. Once you've tapped out the Luck Bank, it's tapped. One could even say Barry's… "overdrawn"!?

    Yes indeedy-doo ! Barry will apologize for wrongs not committed , blame the innocent and no doubt pay the NKs a ship load of money we don`t have !! Perhaps he`ll update Daddy IL`s old-worn out porn collection for Dear Son Un !

    We are weak and have a wimp as Prez………

    Dear Leader was awakened at 4 am this morning by TOTUS ………He was in Kokomo, IN later today which is in the central time zone…..perhaps that`s why TOTUS`s clock was an hour fast ! So, technically speaking, Obozo has had his 3 am wake up call !

    Dangit, why do I do this to myself !? I need mouthwash AGAIN !

    this would be the 3 world war because China is alied from North Korea, and Unided States is alied from south Korea, so is china and north Korea v.s. Usa and south Korea.
