• BHO Imposes Sanctions On North Korea, After Lifting Them On Cuba

    Obama’s never been one for consistency.

    Just two weeks ago, he addressed the nation and declared that he decided to normalize diplomatic relations with dictator-run Cuba and that he was lifting the decades-long sanctions being imposed on that country.

    Obama’s reasoning? “Our sanctions on Cuba have denied Cubans access to technology that has empowered individuals around the globe,” he said.

    And today, in response to the North Korean government’s involvement with the hacking and cyber attack on Sony Entertainment’s computer records, the flip flopper-in-chief announced an executive order imposing additional sanctions on North Korea.

    Obama’s North Korean sanctions “target three entities—including the country’s primary intelligence organization—and 10 individuals as agencies or officials of the North Korean government,” according to NBC.

    Both Cuba and North Korea openly oppress their citizenry. Both Both Cuba and North Korea have little regard for even the most basic of human rights. But for some reason Obama believes it’s okay to legitimize Cuba and blacklist North Korea?

    Cuba’s not exactly our ally on the world stage.

    In any event, Obama’s new sanctions on North Korea will only punish the already impoverished people of North Korea, if we are to take Obama’s Cuba rationale seriously. I suspect Kim Jung-Un will laugh off these new sanctions just as he has laughed off the first round.
