Quote of the Day - John McCain

“I was saddened to learn about the death of Otto Warmbier today following his unjust imprisonment and torture in North Korea. I send my heartfelt condolences to Otto’s family and friends as they grieve this tragic loss.

Let us state the facts plainly: Otto Warmbier, an American citizen, was murdered by the Kim Jong-un regime. In the final year of his life, he lived the nightmare in which the North Korean people have been trapped for 70 years: forced labor, mass starvation, systematic cruelty, torture, and murder.

North Korea is threatening its neighbors, destabilizing the Asia-Pacific region, and rapidly developing the technology to strike the American homeland with nuclear weapons. Now it has escalated to brutalizing Americans, including three other citizens currently imprisoned in North Korea. The United States of America cannot and should not tolerate the murder of its citizens by hostile powers.”

~ Senator John McCain

It goes without saying that the death of Otto Warmbier is an unspeakable tragedy. Having said that, he is not the first, nor is he the last missionary to be kidnapped or killed in a hostile country. This has been going on for centuries. The US can express its' grief and displeasure at the country responsible for this atrocity, but that is where it ends. If someone were to look up the statistics of foreign visitors murdered while vacationing in America, I think they would be very sad indeed.

Who said he was a "missionary?" He was a tourist.
And give us the foreign visitors murdered by our government.

Being a pussy does not make travel safer for Americans. Obama stuck his head up his own ass because he was afraid of making North Korea "mad at us. WTF? It's time that pot bellied dictators get the message that if you harm an American ,hell and all of it's residents will rain down on your pointy little head.

So what do you want to do about it after you get done feeling bad about it? He was a tourist influenced by the Methodist Church. Why does the State Department allow Americans to go there? He is not the only prisoner held by NK. Would you go there? He wasn't a journalist. He had no legitimate reason to be over there agitating a hostile government. The only reason you're focused on it is because it's a hot button news item. Suppose it happened in Sudan, or Libya, or Chad, or Mali?

Other than pulling a college prank by taking a banner that did not belong to him, he was not agitating the North Korean government. They arrested him because he was American and because they are a brutal regime and because it was just one more thing to throw up to our government.
I'm focused on it because this is an enemy who is hell bent on starting World War III.
What's your problem?

Tell China they have one week to replace Kim Jung Fuc$. At the end of the week -remove all American troops.BOMB THE SHIT OUT OF THEM.Sorry but lets face it- there is no way to deal with an entire nation of brain washed backwards people.Bombing would be the best solution for the entire world and would entail the fewest American casualties. What's the world gonna do-hate us even more? World peace thru bombing is better than the present world chaos thru cowardice.

Tell China! Yeah, that's a good idea; they're really scared of us. Your knowledge of the world is very limited 9:43. It seems your expertise lies in using creative symbols to express the obscenities that part of your regular vocabulary. You might as well face the fact that the US is in the last days of its' inevitable decline, thanks in part to morons like you.

Lynn Anderson said...

The only decline happening in our country has been and is instigated by liberals, progressives, anarchists, socialists and communists who were influenced by Obama. Do you fit in anywhere?

You are right about that Lynn. The problem is that once something is in decline, it is very difficult to reverse the process.

Yeah. Tell China. They can comply or not.
