Just hours ago, on Monday, the US State Department announced that they are taking North Korean threats seriously in the latest escalation of tensions. Their leader, Kim Jong Un, has actually ordered his country to prepare a pre-emptive nuclear strike “of justice” on Washington, DC. That’s fun news by itself.
But it’s even more fun that US President Obama chose this time to ask Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to visit Washington to meet with him. According to Israeli News sources, that’s not going to happen.
Perhaps the Israeli PM figured that he could just as easily get hit by a rocket fired by some lunatic in his home country. No need to go to Washington for that. Besides, there’s the risk that Obama will forget about the meeting and be playing golf in Florida when he arrives, anyway.
