With a North Korean nuclear test threatening to overwhelm all the excitement over Obama’s State of the Union speech on the important issues of gay marriage and meaningless gun control, the acting president needed to catch up on his sleep so he sent out his stooge Valerie Jarrett to issue a tissue-paper soft statement this morning.
President Barack Obama on Tuesday called North Korea’s latest nuclear test a “highly provocative act” that threatens U.S. security and international peace.
“The danger posed by North Korea’s threatening activities warrants further swift and credible action by the international community,” Obama said in a statement issued early Tuesday. “The United States will also continue to take steps necessary to defend ourselves and our allies.”
Included will be further steps to disarm the American public by parading gun violence victims before the cameras tonight.
The chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, California Republican Ed Royce, released a statement Tuesday calling on the Obama administration to “replace its failed North Korea policy” and issue “stringent sanctions” against North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s regime. “Otherwise, the grave North Korean threat to the region and the United States will only grow,” Royce said.
In an effort to disarm the North Koreans with laughter, Obama decided threatening them with the terrifying image of Jarrett was in order.
Senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett said she expects the international community “will have a very firm response.”
That must really have them trembling, the specter of facing even more useless sanctions.
