Obama: Little Leverage With Isolated North Korea


Former President Obama on Sunday said effectively sanctioning and engaging with North Korea can be difficult because the country is so isolated from the rest of the world.

He acknowledged North Korea is “a real threat,” but cautioned that getting Kim Jong Un’s government to abandon its nuclear program completely will be difficult.

“North Korea is an example of a country that is so far out of the international norms and so disconnected with the rest of the world,” Obama said, according to The Associated Press.

  1. Good thing he’s no longer President. At least Mr. Trump got Li’l Rocket Man’s attention. This failure just coddled to North Korea, and allowd the, to get nukes. Now, with the Trump-Bolton-Pompeo team, the fat baby is running scared.

  2. Hussein Obama let them acquire the nuclear capability for eight years of doing nothing. Mr Trump will UNDO all this in the next eight years………………….

  3. Look who’s talking. The coward who was petrified of Li’l Kim and bribed him with billions of additional American dollars to enhance their missiles they received from the previous liberal President, Bill Clinton in 1994, in exchange for his promise he wouldn’t fire at the US.

    Jealous Obama, the treasonous President, is still sulking with President Trump’s victory with North Korea.

    • You noticed, eh? It’s nice to leave a mess and then upon leaving holler “It’s really messy in here. Somebody should clean it up.”

  4. Ex-president Obama is less than popular with most readers and commenters on this site (myself included), but if you look at what he said instead of who’s saying it he’s absolutely right in this case.

    • If he’d been “absolutely right”, don’t you think President Trump would understand it too? If he’d been “absolutely right”, Kim wouldn’t be in awe of President Trump and attempt peace.

  5. Now that Barry is out of office, maybe he can give the peace loving Iranians some of his own personal money. Some kimcha dipischa, if you will.
