North Korean n-test highly provocative: Obama

Feb 12 2013, 2:14am CST | by

Washington, Feb 12 (IANS) US President Barack Obama condemned the North Korean nuclear test that was conducted Tuesday, calling it "highly provocative".

Washington, Feb 12 — US President Barack Obama condemned the North Korean nuclear test that was conducted Tuesday, calling it "highly provocative".

The test, which North Korea claimed was successful, was carried out at 11.57 a.m. in Kilju county, North Hamkyung province, reported Xinhua.

"This is a highly provocative act that, following its December 12 ballistic missile launch, undermines regional stability, violates North Korea's obligations under numerous United Nations Security Council resolutions," Obama said in a statement issued by the White House.

Obama said North Korea's latest move contravenes its commitments under the Sep 19, 2005 Joint Statement of the Six-Party Talks on North Korea's nuclear programmes and "increases the risk of proliferation".

Calling North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs as a threat to US national security and to international peace and security, Obama said the US "remains vigilant in the face of North Korean provocations and steadfast in our defense commitments to allies in the region".

COLDWATER, Ohio (AP) — John Kasich is waiting for his second cup of chili. He's in the middle of another day on the campaign trail, but as he's way up in the polls, Ohio's Republican governor isn't about to pass up a second helping.

Bill Clinton stumps for Landrieu, As Obama Remains MIA

Oct 21 2014 7:03pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Neither Barack Obama, nor another prominent Democrat, "Louisiana's 6th Congressional District, former governor and federal felon Edwin W. Edwards," managed to show up at what was billed as a large Louisiana event for Democrat Mary Landrieu, yesterday. While Landrieu appears to be in trouble, certainly the Clinbton's would welcome any support for Hillary in 2016 when she runs for president - assuming Landrieu remains relevant after November. Clinton helpfully poin ...

Now it's jail time for faithful Christians

Oct 21 2014 6:49pm CDT | Source: WND

Do you believe marriage is for members of the opposite sex? How strongly do you believe that? Is your belief strong enough to face jail time for your opinion? How would you feel if you were forced by a city or state or federal government to participate in a same-sex wedding? Would your opinion change if your decision not to participate could land you in jail? These are not hypothetical questions for Christian pastors Donald and Evelyn Knapp. They are actually living this nig ...

Hallelujah! Liberal women wake up to Obama

Oct 21 2014 6:48pm CDT | Source: WND

When a diehard liberal woman like Tina Brown comes out and completely destroys the left’s “war on women” argument, you know you are in trouble. In an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Brown didn’t mince words when she made it clear that Barack Obama has shattered the confidence women once had in him. Probably realizing that the Dems are going to get scorched in the mid-terms, she tried to justify the reason why he was losing one of his most loyal support groups – and to tell the t ...

Krauthammer: Obama Midterm Low Profile 'a Total Humiliation,' 'Hard for Him to Take'

Oct 21 2014 6:23pm CDT | Source: Big Government

On Tuesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer suggested that President Barack Obama is having a difficult time in having to maintain his low profile as midterm campaigns are underway. Krauthammer traced the path of Obama, from his heights of popularity five and six years to now, where he is seen more useful as a behind-the-scenes fundraiser, to which Krauthammer argued had to b ...

President Barack Obama sent shockwaves through Senate races during a Monday radio interview with Rev. Al Sharpton wherein the president said Senate Democrats are merely pretending to distance themselves from an Obama agenda they wholeheartedly embrace.
