Secretary of Defense Robert Gates predicted North Korea would launch a missile soon and said there's nothing the United States can do about it.
"I would say we're not prepared to do anything about it," said Gates during an appearance on "Fox News Sunday."
STRASBOURG, France - Welcomed with thunderous cheers, President Barack Obama told a European audience on Friday that he is setting a dramatic goal of "a world without nuclear weapons."By Sunday morning:
The new American president opened a town-hall style gathering with the declaration, saying he would outline details in Prague in the coming days.
"Even with the Cold War now over, the spread of nuclear weapons or the theft of nuclear material could lead to the extermination of any city on the planet," Obama said, previewing a planned speech.
Brilliant. And what do we have to do about it? Same as we did before the launch: More words. More talk. Same as it ever was.
Is anyone really colored amazed by this? This is what happens when the world has no teeth; when the U.S. does, but is muzzled. CJ nails it, spot on.
Well, if you want to eliminate nuclear weapons, Mr. President, you're off to a helluva good start.
