North Korea's president under pressure

Oklahoman Published: April 14, 2013

Margaret Thatcher, the “Iron Lady,” has died and many in England and around the world are glad. Some say her policies were controversial and polarizing. Thatcher was tough-minded, realistic and didn't see peace as a reality. She believed the free world shouldn't disarm, but should maintain a trained military and the weapons necessary to combat tyranny, as tyrants were here to stay. The Argentine military junta that took England's Falkland Islands may have done so thinking a woman prime minister wouldn't fight.

South Korea's president, Park Geun-hye, is a woman. North Korea's president, Kim Jong Un, may see his manhood at stake and to save face must attack South Korea and reunite Korea. He no doubt is under pressure from military leaders around him who served under or remember his father and grandfather. South Korea and the United States must remain alert and prepared to fight.
