More sanctions from the peace president

With nothing more to go on than FBI claims (no smoking gun) and similarity to the modus operandi of past North Korean shenanigans, Obombya has expanded sanctions on North Korea even with growing doubts of their involvement and some hints at a disgruntled employee revenge motive.

Shouldn’t an act of war be more carefully considered? Not with the US government which finds such consideration a mere roadblock to Neo-con perfection.

  1. The FBI claims they have “intelligence” reports that they are unable to share publicly that “prove” Korean involvement. It does seem that there were disgruntled employees and/or former employees involved.
    I agree that sanctions are rarely effective. They usually hurt the citizens of a nation rather than the government. In that way they are, in fact, counterproductive to what I believe to be our national interests.
    However, referring to our president as a Neo-con is an unusual choice of words for you. I don’t think he or the Neo-cons would agree with such an assessment.

    • He is a Neo-con, one who favors pre-emptive military action to further US interests and distrusts free markets at home. The look might be a little different but the sanctions on Russia and the CIA overthrow of the duly elected government in KIev, invasion of Libya, drone attacks in Pakistan and Yemen and all the other clandestine foreign adventures that leak out would indicate Neo-conism.

      The reason we don’t see the similarities between Obama and people like Dick Cheney is that the narrative has been shrunk to make them seem like they are on opposite ends of the political spectrum. Compare them to Switzerland and they look quite similar.
