    we have seen already many power escalations played with rethoric like a wrist fight, to bring in the end nothinhg more than a political stall dictated from a real lack of capacity to act, however only the US meant business and often they did it regardless the opinium of the international community, it is refreshing that P. Obama is calling for their solidariety, evidently he estimates that North Korean is not a threat to a single nation but to the peace of the entire world, and he is considerate not to self-center political initiatives which would pose him at the same stake of others, I concede him that approach as an honest stand to a problem which may eventually be the concern of all but bearing in mind that, as usual, the one who pay the most tribute is always the same.

    So North Korea, test's a nuclear weapon... Yea that act by itself is bad... Oh here's a great Idea, Maybe the United States should "test" its "3rd" Nuclear weapon.. I think Former President Bush said you drop 2, get one free right?

    Bush stuck the knife in the U.S.

    and

    Obama is twisting the knife slowly.

    When is the media going to be sock puppets for the government?

    News Break: "Senate rebukes Obama, blocks Guantanamo shutdown 90 to 6"

    Yet I hear nothing from CNN. OBAMA is A RADICAL. WAKE UP. EVEN IS OWN PARTY WAS AGAINST HIM.

    The world needs to unite and do something.
    North Korea was underground nuclear test. North Korea is what it want.

    President Obama is correct to say that the international community must act

    North korea has always been a threat even since the Bush administration, Bush just thought he would take the weakest link Iraq.
