Krauthammer explains the ugly truth about North Korea's launch

Sir Charles Krauthammer gives us the unvarnished and ugly truth about Obama's ridiculous "Ban the Bomb!" response to the North Korean launch of an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile. And it's far worse than I feared. Not only is our rookie president doing nothing, worse than that, at the same time his defense budget is cutting drastically into our missile defense program, which is like strangling a baby in the crib. Preliminary tests have shown our first efforts at missile defense will work. But it's like arming our troops with popguns. They need real guns and lots of them to fight a war. And at the scariest time in our history, we have a rookie president who's beating the useless drum for nuclear disarmament like a brain-fried hippy while also cutting our defenses against maniac regimes in North Korea and Iran, just to name two among many, who would love nothing more than to nuke America's homeland.

Our nation barely survived the "hollow army" under President Jimmy Carter's defense cuts during his one term, 1976-80 and the same is true of two terms of President Bill Clinton. At least then, we were enjoying the "peace dividend" of the fall of the Iron Curtain and the Communists.

Now we're staring at Armageddon and another liberal Democrat is in power. God help us all.
