Coincidence? On the same day President Obama calls for "a world without nuclear weapons," North Korea successfully test-fires an ICBM capable of delivering the regime's nuclear warheads to Asia and Alaska. As The Claremont Institute's Brian Kennedy says on The Corner, "While he is preening about a world without nuclear weapons, and beginning his justification for doing away with our rudimentary missile defense systems, the North Koreans launch a missile that further demonstrates their intention of being able to attack the United States or Japan."
So, instead of strengthening defense (which Japan may do), the U.S. joined other nations seeking "strong" action from the UN, i.e., "tougher sanctions." I note that most of the world already has sanctions against North Korea, which didn't stop liberals from complaining that George Bush was overreacting. In any event, the UN couldn't even reach a decision on this no-brainer. So much for all that international goodwill Obama's arrival would deliver.
Questions: Isn't the President doing exactly what George Bush did?--"more talks," then "more concessions."

How long before we try Obama's plan for face-to-face meetings without pre-conditions?
