Robert M. Gates....Closet Comedian

Kim Jong-il must be getting a pretty good laugh. With Obama having warmed up the crowd with his new, friendlier, America approach, the comedy styling of our Defense Secretary is rolling on to the stage.

May 3oth, 2009, Robert Gates, US Secretary of Defense speaking on North Korea's nuclear and missile testing:

“We will not stand idly by as North Korea builds the capability to wreak destruction on any target in Asia — or on us,” Gates said.

Yee Haw. At first I thought he was getting ready for a Leno or Saturday Night Live appearance.

I have just a few questions for the honorable Mr. Gates:

Do you know what planet you are on?

Do you realize who you work for?

Do you know your boss is moving rapidly to kill missile defense?

Have you given any thought at all as to why North Korea is making such a dramatic "in your face" move at this time?

Do you really believe, like your boss, that simply talking will solve this problem?

Do you really believe, like your boss, that the U.N. has a good chance of solving this problem?

Do you know what "not stand idly by" means because you really are going to do the opposite of that.

Is it fact that you and your boss really have not figured out the failure of the "sanctions" route?

And please, oh please, when you talk to our European allies about getting tough with North Korea, will you kindly post the meeting minutes on the web.

I need a good laugh too.
