The Vice President’s long opposition to missile defense meets the reality of North Korea.
(Page 4 of 4)
A threat? From North Korea? But how could this be? What happened to those diplomatic efforts then-Senator Biden said would defuse North Korea? If the VP wants to take some non-sequestered travel, why isn’t he in Pyongyang hanging out with Kim Jong-un instead of Dennis Rodman?
When one cuts to the chase here, what’s at play is the liberal mindset on national security issues. There is nothing new with Biden – or the now highly predictable results of his lack of common sense about the threats to the United States and how to deal with them.
Biden’s record as a senator included his support for the nuclear freeze, cutting off funding for the Vietnam War (launching the infamous killing fields of Cambodia and the murderous overtaking of South Vietnam by the North), opposing the first Gulf War in 1991 and so on… and so on… and so on.
Now, as the sitting Vice President of the United States, the irony is that the Biden chickens are coming home to roost. North Korea is in fact threatening America with nuclear missiles, and now the U.S. government has to scramble to reverse the damage done to American missile defense done by Biden’s work.
Will there be a war with North Korea? Will Californians and others on the West Coast suddenly find themselves watching their televisions and computers in horrified fashion as a North Korean missile flies towards them, making of Hollywood or San Francisco the new Israel? Their citizens nervously scanning the sky for incoming?
We will see.
But if in fact this scenario plays itself out, it’s safe to say that whatever else follows will have a name:

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
