REALLY??? That has NEVER happened! This is BIG news!
In Pyongyang, North Korea said that it had carried out a powerful underground nuclear test — much larger than one conducted in 2006. The regime also test-fired three short-range, ground-to-air missiles later Monday from the same northeastern site where it launched a rocket last month, the Yonhap news agency reported, citing unnamed sources.
And all Obama can say is we must "stand up to" this behavior.
Appearing on the White House steps, Obama said that its latest nuclear underground test and subsequent test firings of short-range ground to air missiles "pose a grave threat to the peace and security of the world and I strongly condemn their reckless action."
He called it "a blatant violation of international law" and said that it contradicted North Korea's "own prior commitments." Obama had released a written statement chastising the North Koreans in the early morning hours of Monday.
Ooooh, so scary!
This is so laughable! It's like Carter all over again! He's probably going to panty-waist around using preschool verbage like telling them "that is unkind" and to "walk away" from their bad behavior.
*Oh yeah?! Launch a nuclear missile above ground and I'll write two letters next time! Take that. (sticks tongue out)*
For all you left-wing nut jobs who will twist my words, I am not suggesting he order a war on them but his constant pandering and dicking around has left threatening enemies unafraid of the US. Reagan had the balls to be strong and use stronger words than "I condemn your actions" and in the end he didn't have to use force to get our hostages freed.
At the State Department, officials said that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was "engaged in intensive diplomacy" on the issue.
Replace the word "diplomacy" with "bending over." How in the hell is "intensive diplomacy" any different than regular diplomacy? Obama should spend more time dealing with international threats such as these in a firm manner rather than pretend the non-threatening, hard-working, generous, content Americans are the enemy. I'm surprised that the media actually wrote a story on this because it detracts from Obama mission as
