North Korea Test-fires 2 More Missiles
North Korea launched tests of two more short-range missiles a day after detonating a nuclear bomb underground, a news report said, pushing the regime's confrontation with world powers further despite the threat of U.N. Security Council action.
Two missiles — one ground-to-air, the other ground-to-ship — with a range of about 80 miles (130 kilometers) were test-fired from an east coast launch pad, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported, citing an unnamed government official.
South Korean spy chief Won Sei-hoon had informed lawmakers earlier Tuesday that a missile test was likely, according to the office of Park Young-sun, a legislator who attended the closed-door briefing.
Yonhap reported that North Korea was preparing to launch a third missile from a west coast site, again citing an unnamed official.
North Korea appeared to be displaying its might a day after conducting an underground atomic test in the northeast that the U.N. Security Council condemned as a "clear violation" of a 2006 resolution banning the regime from developing its nuclear program.
The U.N. Security Council is condemning North Korea's nuclear test as a clear violation of its resolutions.
The council said in a statement Monday that it will begin work immediately on a new legally binding resolution addressing North Korea's violations.
The U.N.'s most powerful body held an emergency meeting at Japan's request after North Korea conducted its second nuclear test earlier Monday.
The council is demanding that North Korea abide by two previous resolutions, which among other things banned further nuclear tests and called for a return to six-party talks aimed at eliminating its nuclear program.
Obama: North Korea 'Recklessly Challenging' International Community
North Korea's nuclear test is a "matter of grave concern," President Obama said Monday, as officials in Washington accused the rogue regime of blatantly defying the international community.
The communist country said 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.
The twin moves were roundly condemned in Washington.
"These actions, while not a surprise given its statements and actions to date, are a matter of grave concern to all nations," Obama said in a written statement, calling them an apparent violation of international law. "North Korea's attempts to develop nuclear weapons, as well as its ballistic missile program, constitute a threat to international peace and security."
Wild Thing's comment............
“UN Security Council condemns NKorea nuke test”
That’ll show ‘em!
“A strongly worded letter may be next.”
Following that a devastating set of incentive packages will follow.
Do UN Resolutions beat Nuclear Bombs in the same way that Paper covers Rock?????
And from Obama.........he might as well have said......“And if you don’t stop we’re going to say even MEANER things about you....”
Obama did say......
North Korea 'Recklessly Challenging' International Community
He isn't challenging the community Obama, he is challenging you!
Obama's words mean nothing and our enemies know that. He is a joke.

Kim Jong ILK (?) He looks like the product of a tryst between Jabba the hut and Meatloaf. This pint sized is now commanding attention of the whole world because the UN is gutless and the United States is Leaderless.
Somehow It will be blamed on Bush and the United States, and obama the coward he is will apologize for it, but this little half breed didn't dare try this kind of aggravation when Bush-Cheney were on Pennsylvania avenue.
Soon the whole world will be testing the resolve of the Soutpiel puppet to find out, to their amazement and amusement, he has none to go along with his lack of 'nads'.
Not funny is the American People are going to suffer for this lack of Leadership.

This guy needs missels in his shoes to shoot him up to where he can stand face to face with a man. Doesn't need that to talk face to face with a bowing Obama. Perhaps Obama would get on his knees before this creep.

Jack, good one. All these resolutions
mean nothing if we don't make them stick
and strong. I think Obama thinks of
resolutions like sending his daughters to
bed early for not eating all their dinner.

Bob A., I bet Obama would do that.

Somehow all the talk of how Kim is a crackpot eccentric, while Obama is portrayed as all-knowing and wise doesn’t quite square with reality when the “crackpot” is running circles around our flawless messiah.
This is the same Obama that was apparently busy with his puppy-vetting process or playing basketball while the Russians where nabbing our Afghan supply air-base in Kyrgizstan.
Obama is endangering our national security, a failure of his most primary duty as president… maybe we should draw a line here?
Obamania’s sheeple are deeply delusional, and as the misguided Obama’s enablers, these fools are going to get us killed.
