The U.S. is much like North Korea

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 — I’m really worried about North Korea’s new leader, Kim Jung Un. He is now the leader of a country that is a … nuclear power.

Kim Jung Un had no military experience whatsoever, before his father made him a four star general in the military.

This is a no-nothing twerp who has never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership.

He hasn’t even so much as led a Cub Scout Pack, coached a sports team or commanded a military platoon. So guess what … North Korea makes him the “Beloved Leader” of their country.

How stupid is that?

Oh, forgive me, I’m sorry. It just dawned on me that we did the same thing right here in the good ol’ USA.

We took an arrogant no-nothing, who has never worn a uniform, not even a Boy Scout uniform, and made him commander-in-chief. A guy who has never had a real job, worked on a budget, met a payroll or led anything other than an ACORN demonstration, we made him the leader of the free world.

Now how stupid is that?

I’m sorry I even brought Kim Jung Un up.

Help us make our arrogant no-nothing a one-term mistake.

  • Be nice to a veteran

    Charles Plumb was a Navy pilot, who on his 76th combat mission over North Vietnam, was hit by a surface to air missile and had to eject. He parachuted into enemy hands and spent the next six years in the infamous Hanoi Hilton. He survived and now lectures on life’s lessons learned from that ordeal.

  • No ‘Memorial’ in title doesn’t sit well

    Born just after World War II, to a war veteran, I grew up in the shadows of uncles and cousins who were WWII vets. Many Saturday nights were spent sitting by the fireplace, listening to their war stories of the places they were sent, what they had to endure and what they witnessed. They are my heroes. It is because of what they and U.S. military veterans since, have or are suffering, that I do what I can for any veteran who calls upon me. They have made me and they drive my life.

  • We are not the bad guy

    This letter is for staff writer Ian Faulkner. You do not seem to think the threat from North Korea is serious. Read your history of war. I’m glad that our country takes it serious.
