If only Biden had been wrong about this, too

Joe warned us that Obama would be tested within six months of taking office, and so far he's spot on. Iran and North Korea are competing over who will be the first to see just exactly how limp-wristed our super-fabulous new President is:

North Korea conducts underground nuclear test; readies three short-range rockets for launch
"Russian officials said the nuclear bomb that the North detonated underground Monday was comparable to those that obliterated Hiroshima and Nagasaki, raising fears that the communist country could spread such technology abroad.

In a further sign of the North's mounting standoff with the world, a report said the country was likely preparing to fire short-range missiles Tuesday off its western coast."

Iran, fresh from successful long-range missile test, dispatches six warships to the Gulf of Aden
"Iran has threatened to block the [nearby] strait of Hormuz, through which about 40 percent of the world's traded oil is shipped, if it were attacked over its nuclear program."

God, I just want to dig myself a bunker, crawl in it, and not come out for the next three and a half years.

You and me both. If this much has changed in the last few months, it is frightening to consider the changes ahead. I've been looking at other folks living off the grid and I tell ya, it's not looking so bad!
