President Barack Obama said on Saturday the United States did not use its military might to impose things on others, but that it would use that might if necessary to defend South Korea from any attack by the reclusive North.
The North warned last month it would not rule out a new form of atomic test after the UN Security Council condemned Pyongyangs launch of a mid-range ballistic missile into the sea east of the Korean peninsula.
Obama and South Korean President Park Geun-hye presented a united front against North Korea at a joint news conference following their summit on Friday, warning that they would respond firmly to any provocations by Pyongyang which routinely threatens the United States and South Korea with destruction.

Uh, guy? Your entire administration has been predicated on open contempt for our "way of life" and a burning desire to change it. Now, if you'd said "We'll nuke you on behalf of all the oppressed gay people in Pyongyang" then I might believe you.

Weak and foolish Democrat presidents always wind up causing needless mayhem.
Despots everywhere rejoiced when Obama was re-elected.
... And if they get even more squirrelly, the State Dept might text out a savage Twitter with a witty cliche hashtag! (Shudder)
They are safe from Obama’s retaliation as long as they don’t insult any muslims.
What’s Zero gonna do ? Nuke ‘em into the Stone Age ? That’d be a leap forward for NK.
Okay, help me keep this straight.
So far we’re poking at Putin, pulling at N. Korea, rattling our saber at China. We have troops and assets in Afghanistan, who are sitting above Syria and Iran and to the west of a grudging friend and of course below and between China and Russia.
How is this supposed to end well for us?
Active Duty ping.
Li’l Kim must be terrified now.
Yep Lil Kim is so scared when he read Obama’s letter in Big Bold Colored Text. Obama makes tyrants scared...NOT!
