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".

Oct 31 2014 11:50am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

NEW ORLEANS -- Republicans trying to win a competitive Senate seat in Louisiana are professing outrage after Sen. Mary Landrieu, the Democratic incumbent, said race has hurt President Barack Obama in the South. Landrieu told NBC's Chuck Todd on Thursday that Obama had a hard time in Louisiana because "the South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans." "It's been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive lig ...

War without Strategy

Oct 31 2014 11:50am CDT | Source: Big Government

This article by Col. Bing West originally appeared at the Hoover Institution: Forty-three percent of voters ranked the economy as the top issue in the 2014 midterm election, versus 15% who cited foreign policy.1 Yet 62% said they were very concerned about terrorism, the largest percentage polled since 2007, before the war turned around in Iraq.2  So why is the public both concerned and yet not concerned? The ...

Social Issues Not A Priority With Mid-Term Woters

Oct 31 2014 11:37am CDT | Source: Big Government

Mark Udall made himself into something of a laughingstock in Colorado by focusing so strongly on certain social issues, even the media began referring to him as Mark 'Uterus,' instead of Udall. Now, a new Associated Press-GfK poll suggests it was a disastrous strategic choice for his campaign, even if it had been done effectively. For candidates "trying to rally voters around traditional wedge issues such as abortion and gay marriage. This fall, vo ...

8 Desperation Moves from Democrats That Show They'll Be Crushed on Tuesday

Oct 31 2014 10:49am CDT | Source: Big Government

On Friday, Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA), in an act of pure political desperation, has now labeled her own constituency racist and sexist. “I’ll be very, very honest with you,” Landrieu said. “The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as leader.” The goal: drive out the black vote, the same way President Obama did in 2012. Landrieu ...

Hillary Clinton Jobs Remark Makes Cameo In House Debate

Oct 31 2014 9:59am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Hillary Clinton's comment that businesses don't create jobs made a cameo in a House debate Thursday evening. Republican Rick Allen, who owns a construction company, attacked incumbent Rep. John Barrow's (D-Ga.) record by invoking the former secretary of state and President Barack Obama. "I mean I know that our president and Mrs. Clinton have both said that businesses don't create jobs. But, you know what -- they do. And when you ...

It's Up to Us on November 4th: The 2014 Elections and Beyond

Oct 31 2014 9:51am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

While the pundits and pollsters are predicting a Republican takeover of the Senate, it would be wise to take their prognostications with a grain of salt and not let them become a self-fulfilling prophesy. After all, even those so-called "experts" are not infallible. They didn't see the coming tsunami of the Tea Party in 2010 that swept into the House and effectively took control of DC. The Democrats were blindsided in that election, too, and we are a ...
