You don't ever stop a bully by giving the bully a default win.
That's what Secretary of Defense "I hate war" Chuckie Hagel just did. The USAF had been scheduled to test a Minuteman 3 ICBM in a launch from Vandenburg AFB, CA, but the peacenik SecDef just kowtowed to the Nork bully and put off the test.
Technically, the test is probably unnecessary, since the Minuteman 3 is a very reliable missile and we can do non-firing computer simulations with it's component parts that will have better than 90% validity. Maybe this exercise was to have tested the MIRTB, a new multiple warhead that showers the enemy with teddy bears instead of nukes. Who knows. All the Crazy 'Un knows is that we kowtowed to him.
OTOH, maybe we acted upon the suggestion of the nepotistic Park family, which just turned South Korea over to the wife of the former President. This isn't the first time nepotism has happened in So. Korea, either. They are into their Sixth Republic.
So now the bully-boy Kim-'Un gets a notch on his gunstock without firing a shot. Boy, we showed him with those B-2 flybys, didn't we?
I'm having a hard time deciding on Maroon of the Month, since both Chuckie Hagel and Kim Jong-Un are both nominated. Sorry, you pair of idiots, neither of you gets the 15 seconds of fame as Maroon. The office will remain vacant.
