PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — Defying U.N. warnings, North Korea on Tuesday conducted its third nuclear test in the remote, snowy northeast, taking a crucial step toward its goal of building a bomb small enough to be fitted on a missile capable of striking the United States.
North Korea said the atomic test was merely its “first response” to what it called U.S. threats, and said it will continue with unspecified “second and third measures of greater intensity” if Washington maintains its hostility.
Today, thanks to the fecklessness of B.J. Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, we are reading news stories about North Korea testing nuclear weapons. Very shortly they will be shoved off the front page by newer stories about Iran testing nuclear weapons.
Suicidal idiocy: the non-partisan disease that just keeps on giving.
