Here is something veddy interesting to consider as you go about your average day.
It looks like North Korea is set to launch a mid-range missile on Wednesday, April 10th. This could be a bluff but maybe not. The missile could be nuclear but hopefully not. The Express UK reports:
North Korea to ‘launch missile TOMORROW’ after warning foreigners to evacuate South
NORTH Korea has completed preparations for a mid-range missile launch tomorrow from its east coast, officials in Seoul have revealed – just hours after foreigners living in South Korea were warned to quit the country.
Now consider that North Korea is 14 hours ahead of Washington D.C., and tonight at 7:30 p.m. President Obama is hosting a lavish party/concert celebrating Memphis Soul music with Justin Timberlake headlining an all-star cast. As the Weekly Standard reports:
On Barack and Michelle Obama’s schedule for today, this event is listed:
7:30PM THE PRESIDENT and THE FIRST LADY host a concert celebrating Memphis Soul music as part of their “In Performance at the White House” series; THE PRESIDENT delivers remarks
As the White House has previously announced, Justin Timberlake (who will be making his White House debut), Al Green, Ben Harper, Queen Latifah, Cyndi Lauper, Joshua Ledet, Sam Moore, Charlie Musselwhite, Mavis Staples, and others will be performing at the exclusive event.
So just when the White House party begins it will be 9:30 a.m. in North Korea. This conceivably means that President Obama could be dancing and singing while North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Il is launching.
Just think, Obama could be the first president to preside over a nuclear dance party. Or to state this in a more familiar historical context: “Obama fiddles while South Korea burns.”
