Obama calls North Korea nuclear test a threat to U.S.
Posted in the Junction City Forum
President Obama on Tuesday called North Korea's third successful nuclear test a "highly provocative act" that "undermines regional stability" and threatens action by the international community.
He said North Korea's nuclear program constitutes "a threat to U.S. national security."
The White House released the statement early Tuesday after North Korea detonated a miniaturized nuclear device at a northeastern test site, state media said, defying U.N. Security Council orders to shut down atomic activity or face more sanctions and international isolation."
President Obama declared in his statements that while the United States (under Democratic control) had in the past used nuclear weapons against innocent civilians, he didn't believe that it was fair for anyone else to do the same thing. "If you don't stop this madness, we will be forced to bring our CIA Drones to surgically strike your schools and hospitals. I mean it, man. If I am willing to use them against my own people, don't think for a minute I won't use them against yours."

For a good read about what life may be like if the NoKos really do get operative nukes and a way to deliver them, see Peter Bagge's "Apocalpse Nerd," available from Fantagraphics. Two schmucks from Seattle are out playing woodsmen in the Cascades when North Korea nukes Seattle. Among other Road Warrior/Postman style adventures they run into an Arab-American who bicycled into the highlands because a mob was trying to kill him. "Wait a minute, you're Arabic, not Korean!" one of the guys says. "Yeah," he says, "But mobs aren't interested in nuances like that!"
