So, we are painting ourselves in a corner. NK is testing us, and if they do launch their missile, we will do nothing. I worry that nations around the world who may be on the fence as to whether to push us will take this as a sign of weakness. Obama will be an utter failure as a strong world leader and I think his weakness will reduce our security. Our nation is hated by many around the world who have nothing to live for but hatred. Our nation is not respected, as we have treated our enemies with kid gloves for the past two decades. We may destroy, but then we rebuild. We must be a nation that is feared if nothing else. It is better to be respected, but in the absense of respect, fear will do.
