Newt Gingrich told Fox's Chris Wallace that he would have disabled North Korea's missile before it could have launched.

"There are three or four techniques that could have been used, from unconventional forces to standoff capabilities, to say: 'We're not going to tolerate a North Korean missile launch, period.' I mean, the world's either got to decide that North Korea is utterly dangerous -- I'd recommend, look at electromagnetic pulse, which changes every equation about how risky these weapons are," explained Gingrich.

That Newt sure is a card. Let's just attack another country once again. Isn't that considered an act of war? In wingnut world, George Bush was a genius when he made a deal with Kim Jong Il. And GW even boasted about taking them off his terror list: I am notifying Congress of my intent to rescind North Korean's designation as a state sponsor of terror in 45 days.

Yet the same wingnuts are now attacking President Obama with a clip from the Team America movie that features Kim Jong Il because he criticized NK./blockquote>

That stern finger wagging by President Obama didn't seem to deter them much, did it?

And Bush's part in the six-nation talks worked like a charm. I really liked 'Team America' by the way.
