South Korea: Worst-Case Scenario on missile crisis

Lee Byong-chul from Ohmynews looks into the recent conflict between North and South Korea over missile launch. Lee thinks it's time for South Korea to prepare for the worst case scenario in inter-Korean relations.

    What would happen in a North Korean invasion of South Korea? South Korea would fall in 48 hours. The U.S. would do nothing, showing the world just how weak the US is under Obama. The most Obama might do do is call for some more worthless economic sanctions, but as far as honoring our obligation to defend South Korea, alll Obama would do is suck his thumb and cry mama. Under President for Life Obama, the United States may well become a third rate military power.

    Hunter, forget Korea. The US is becoming a third world nation under Obama. With the huge deficits he’s creating, and the anticipated unbearable tax burden he and the Democrats are going to impose, the US may soon be no better off than Kenya. Hide your money!
