Obama to Korea: About that Nuclear Bomb Thingy
I have been reporting on American Thinker for weeks that North Korea was going to launch a rocket that could carry a nuclear warhead -- possibly as far as Alaska or Hawaii.
President Obama seems to have just gotten that message. And his response to the North Korean nuclear threat should scare the living daylights out of rational thinking people everywhere.
Here is how the UK Times reported Obama’s reaction to the North Korean missile launch:
President Obama faced his first big test on security yesterday after North Korea launched a missile designed to carry a warhead as far as Alaska.Did you read that last paragraph? Obama will stop North Korea from building and launching nuclear weapons by signing a new treaty with the Russians that will limit the number of our own nuclear weapons.
He said that such provocation underscored the need for action against the defiance of a rogue nuclear power and the spread of weapons across the world. The threat of North Korea acquiring nuclear missile technology, he said, “matters to all people, everywhere.”
He told a crowd in Prague: “We cannot succeed in this endeavour alone but we can lead it, we can start it.” The US President promised to seek immediate Senate ratification of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, begin talks with Russia on cutting warheads and call for better controls to prevent terrorists or rogue regimes obtaining fissile material.
Sometimes naïveté starts to slip slowly towards madness. If limiting our own nuclear arsenal is Obama’s idea of “smart power ” diplomacy … the United States is in deep, deep trouble.
