North Korea Thinks U.S. is a Boiled Pumpkin?

North Korea hurls insults at the U.S. including this rather colorful one:

“It compared the U.S. mainland with a “boiled pumpkin,” unable to endure an attack from a foreign foe, the state-run Korean Central News Agency reported.”  — CNN.com

Also included in the report is North Korea’s claim to be ready for any and all attacks because it has built bunkers just for such purposes.  They have claimed that they will survive any such attacks.

Considering that about half the households in the United States maintain firearms, North Korea is not going to be attacking us on our shore.  Those who have guns will immediately share them with those who don’t have them.  North Koreans won’t stand a chance.  Americans are prepared for anything.  North Korean soldiers caught and thrown in prison for attacking our country will be better off than those left at home, if there is a home to go to.  At least in the U. S. those same invading North Korean soldiers will have food, clothing, shelter, medical care and freedom to choose their religion.  That is much better than what North Korean citizens are currently allowed.

The people of North Korea live in abject poverty, face starvation, and suffer hideous maltreatment.   The fact that people are trying to leave North Korea at great risk is no small surprise.  The risk of getting caught is just as bad as living in North Korea, but they are willing to risk even death to escape.  It is said that Kim Il Sung once said there will not be another generation of Christians born in North Korea as he sent soldiers to kill babies of Christian mothers or give the mother’s a chance to kill them humanly.   One fact is certain, Kim Il Sung did unspeakable things to persons who would not swear to his new religion, “Juche” also called “Kimilsungism” in which he is the only god.

Is it any wonder the people of South Korea wish delay reuniting with North Korea until a more reasonable agreement can be made?  Who would want to Kim Jong Un builds war bunkers.give up their freedoms and rights so they may be forced to worship a self-made god and then his son?  South Korean’s want to keep what they have worked hard to build.  The United States respects South Korea for its accomplishments and won’t allow anyone to destroy it.

The whole world is watching to see what you will do, Kim Jong Un.  The world is watching you fall into your father’s footsteps.  We are watching you spiral down the same disastrous path as he.  We aren’t the boiled pumpkins.  You are.  We have been prepared since 1776.  You have a choice.  Make it a reasonable one.
