N. Korea on cusp of getting ICBM: thank you Mr. Obama

North Korean dictator and troll doll imitator Kim Jong un is threatening a new ballistic missile test. He's claiming that his country is in the final stages of getting ready to launch an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), their first such test.

His late father, Kim Jong-il, used to try and gain the media coverage with the latest testing of the Taepodong Missile. But the launches generally failed on the launch pad or broke apart once airborne over the Pacific. The Taepodong is North Korea's version of the Iranian Shahab Missile, but much harder to pronounce.

More recently, ballistic and nuclear tests and the successful launch of the Unha-3 rocket indicates the growth and capability of their technology. Just last year, they conducted over 20 ballistic missile tests and 7 nuclear tests in the last 10 years, with 2 of them coming last year.

Unfortunately, it has become clear that this Kim is like his father and we must keep vigilant with them.

Trump is going to have his hands full with North Korea, Iran, Russia and China, not to mention radical Islam, our border security and cyber attacks. He is being handed a load of problems by a president who refused to acknowledge what the real problems are.

Now we can see just how bad the Iranian nuclear deal was--Trump called it stupid and he is right. Allowing Iran to get their hands on all that money by unfreezing their assets makes matters worse with the current threat of North Korea. Thanks to Iran as an "enabler," the North Korean threat is an enormous nuclear weapons challenge we have had since the Cold War.

Thank you so much, Mr. Obama.
