In his role as the guard captain of a Florida prison camp in the movie Cool Hand Luke, one of actor Strother Martin’s more famous lines was: "Some men you just can’t reach…"
There have always been psychotics intoxicated on power and evil. Such is the case for international kooks Kim Jong-Il of North Korea and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran. These men can’t be reached with diplomacy, logic or reason.
It’s incredibly naive and arrogant of the Obama blowhards to believe they can "talk" and reason through pragmatism with rabid kooks. Believing so is kookier than the kooks themselves.
As someone who believes in giving kooks enough rope to hang themselves, the right course of action would be to sever all communications with rogue, whacky regimes until they prove to the world they no longer have rabies. In the meantime, America should walk loudly, proudly, and carry an oil-soaked 2×4 wrapped with rusty barbed wire and always be ready to swat international kooks upside the head.
If we actually had a State Department that is more concerned about protecting America and our allies instead of trying to teach the world to sing Kumbaya, our State Department would have issued the following years ago:
"Effective immediately the United States will not have communications with psycho regimes such as North Korea and Iran, as we know these nations are led by individuals who are nuttier than a Snicker’s bar. Should any nation launch a nuclear weapon or other weapon of mass destruction against the United States or our allies, we will immediately turn their nation in a heaping pile of uninhabitable rubble. If a rabid, kooky leader does not believe us, he just needs to ask himself question: Do I feel lucky?…’Well do ya, punk?’"
The reason international terrorpunks Ahmadinejad and Kim Jong-Il have launched missiles and threatened to wipe nations off of the map is because neither of these terrorthugs respects the Obama administration. These nuclear thugnuts believe President Obama is nothing more than an inexperienced windbag politician with no idea of how the levers of American power can be used to move the world. And, unfortunately, in that they are right.
In her most powerful and compelling response yet to Kim Jong–Il’s string of missile launches and underground nuclear weapons tests, Secretary of State Clinton sternly stated the United States is considering placing North Korea back on the list of terrorist states. The International Den of Thieves & Scoundrels, more commonly known as the United Nations, is considering placing more sanctions on North Korea. Rumor has it that when he heard this news, Kim Jong-Il muttered: ho-hum.
While continuing to develop nuclear power, which President Obama now amazingly says Iran has a right to do, newly re-elected President Ahmadinejad has routinely threatened to wipe Israel off the map. Following the bizzaro logic of stating Iran has a right to nuclear power, one has to wonder if President Obama has reverted to the habits of his youth and is smoking something stronger than unfiltered Camels.
With President Obama going around the world apologizing and blaming America instead of standing up for America, we should expect kooks like Kim Jung Ill-In-The-Head and The Nuclear Nightmare, Ahmadinejad, to continue to poke their crazy, nuclear-tipped fingers into the chest of America.
Nuts, kooks, whackjobs and evil regimes respond best when America acts from a position of strength. President Reagan proved that when he forced the Evil Empire to tear down the wall. American might — not hollow words — works. Windbag politicians are transparent, shallow and weak.
International kooks need to know they will be dealt with like a rabid dog should they ever try to bite. That’s because some men you just can’t reach.
