I'm no fan of North Korea's douchebag government, but I find it kind of funny to see some news outlets calling this attack unprovoked. Um, South Korea was doing live fire exercises off the NK coast, right on the Northern Limit Line which North Korea has never recognized, all during a time when a government loathe to change is trying to build up the accomplishments of the douchey son of their douchey leader so the people will see him as an accomplished and worthy successor.

North Korea can suck a fuck for all I care, but for South Korea to play the innocent victim is a bit like:

To which South Korea would say: North Korea sunk one of our submarines earlier this year. We are doing naval exercises wherever the F we want to to make sure that we are prepared to defend our assets and our people when North Korea attacks us again.

Were their exercises provocative? Yes more than likely. But who the hell am I to tell the South Koreans how to act in that scenerio? I am inclined to side with the South Koreans on this one. And that GIF is awesome.

All that being said, the last thing I want to see is US media getting their panties all wadded up and listening to some vapid fucking morning anchor "analyze" the situation and the motivations of the players involved.

The real America not that part where you live.
 



To be honest I could care less about either Korea, what I do care about is the 28,000 troops we still have there and the Chinese response and possible siding with the North. When I hear of saber rattling in Korea I listen because it could get damn ugly for a lot of people including us.

I think the US and China know what's at stake and are so far acting calmly while the two smaller hotheads jab each other. China just wants to get back to making us all stupid with lead paint, and we just want to get back to Skating with the Stars.

It may get worse before it gets better.

My guess, anyway.

He will back down.

See, CNN, Fox need people with this mindset as pundits.
Below is a Palin joke, it is a joke and meant as such not a controversy stirring declaration.
So read if you wish, or not.
What is the differnce between Sarah Palin's mouth and her vagina? Only some of the things that come out of her vagina are retarded!

I saw skating with the stars and wondered how many posts before I am summoned. Apparently that answer is "three".

My attempt at some creative writing needs work.

Or no one noticed. Or it was just lame.

I like it. It was an aarkie's corner version of that uncrackable statue at CIA headquarters.

Well you can keep on assuming that and bat above average, but that one was posted while I was at work and needs to be filed under "waiting to get drunk".
