Posted on 11/23/2010 3:13:15 AM PST by tobyhill
The White House is strongly condemning North Korea's artillery attack against the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong.
In a statement released before dawn Tuesday, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs calls on North Korea to "halt its belligerent action."
He says the United States is "firmly committed" to South Korea's defense, and to the "maintenance of regional peace and stability."

God help our country with Obama in charge
He failed already and the thing just started. He works fast.
I just find it funny that Obama was there, and now this.
I do not trust this admin even in a time of war.
Yes he did.
“He says the United States is “firmly committed” to South Korea’s defense, and to the “maintenance of regional peace and stability.”
These strongly worded “condemnations” are getting a bit old. Bombs speak louder than words.
NK realizes the o is a single term President and they need to move out smartly to make any advances before the next change...because the next change won’t be nearly as friendly.
Communist death toll continues to mount up...
as America embraces the destructive ideology.
Yes he did.
He says the United States is firmly committed to South Koreas defense, and to the maintenance of regional peace and stability.
These strongly worded condemnations are getting a bit old. Bombs speak louder than words.
Obama and Gibbs are like 2 of the 3 stooges - throw Biden in and you’ve got the 3rd. Sadly they’re so ineffective at protecting this country, yet OMG get out of the way on his push to ruin this country or he’ll run you over - he’s that successful at ruining us.
I’m truly frightened that not only could he have orchestrated or not condemned this if it was hinted at, but Israel’s his next target.
You think we should bomb them? Should we ask the South Koreans or just bomb? It was their country that was attacked and it’ll be their country that will deal with the blow back from our unilaterally bombing North Korea.
I spent 13 months over there in the 70's and US forces in Korea can more than stun the North whenever they want to; probably China too.
This is all for TV consumption and head games.
Maybe we should withdraw from South Korea being we have less interest in SK than we do in Iraq and Afghanistan?
WTF is wrong with people
wait dont have to answer it
I agree with you, but I also can't help thinking that it was our country that made the deals with the North Koreans, during the Clinton administration, that have allowed them to become nuclear. One could argue, of course, that this would have happened anyway, but we certainly didn't help things. Sometimes I feel that we are at a period of history similar to Germany in the early to mid-30s, when the building blocks of disaster were being sown but much of the world was oblivious.
I dunno what some of you guys above are expecting. A war with North Korea is not in US interest. Let South Korea deal with North Korea, its not our problem. Let the SK youngsters risk their own lives since they hate US so much
This has more to do with China testing Obama’s weakness.... and Obama is no Ronald Reagan...
LOL @ Obama! The SK knows it won’t get any help from the North Koreans in Washington!
Obama’s more likely to retaliate against conservatives than he is to take action to defend an ally. He’s a communist himself - he and N. Korea are on the same side.
Bingo! When you hate America, like the South Korean youths... then you shouldn’t get our help.
Now, if they eat some humble pie and learn from their mistakes, then I’m okay with helping out... but not until then.
Very true... The sad truth is that people in this country do not realize he is communist without a doubt. What they think that Obama is going to come out and announce oh I’m a communist by the way? LOL! He will NEVER do that.
If you think about the Socialist/Communist groups in the changed from being called these names to being called Liberals. This is since Socialism/Communism has very negative reaction. Today the word liberal has a very negative reaction. So the modern day word is now Progressive.
Now get back to Obama. What does he call himself. Obama says he is a Progressive.
This country would be better of with Moe Howard as president than Baraq Sheik Obama.
The President, known in diplomatic circles as “Mr. Mom-pants,” in a strongly worded statement, warned North Korean leaders: “Hey, you guys, you better stop that.”
It is reported by the sphyncter-licking press that the North Korean leaders have “wet and soiled themselves” at this show of determination and resolve on the part of the President.
If the US does NOT help its ROK allies....Look for:
EVERYONE to be emboldened to attack allies of NATO/US. OBAMA YOU PIECE OF SHIT WIMP!
You'll see Iran burn off a low yield nuke.
You'll see Iranian Republican Guard in Afghanistan killing NATO and US troops.
You'll see Indonesia and India (foes of China) backing away from SEATO/US and cozying up with China.
You'll see more brushfire wars in Central Africa, esp. Kenya/Congo with more and more AlQueda types proping up.
You'll see Yemen export terrorism into more brazen attacks.
You'll probably see Syria/Lebanon attack Israel with tacit support from other Arab countries. Hell, even Turkey might get involved.
Russia may take the REST of Georgia or other CIS states.
You'll see FARC and other narco-commie forces make strides and gains in South America.
GAWD....the list is endless....our wet paper sack president is AWOL, probably on a cocaine high while our allies are getting SHELLED.....Does it make you feel better that Chewbacca, the mother in law, Biden, Pelosi, Axlerod or Valarie Jarrett are the ones answering the phone?
From Obama’s remarks to Marines in Seoul on Veterans Day:
Because the Korean War ended where it began geographically, some ended up using the phrase Die for a Tie to describe the sacrifices of those who fought here. But as we look around in this thriving democracy and its grateful, hopeful citizens, one thing is clear: This was no tie. This was victory. (Hoaa!) (Applause.)
This was a victory then, and it is a victory today. And 60 years later, a friendship that was forged in a war has become an alliance that has led to greater security and untold progress — not only in the Republic of Korea, but throughout Asia. That is something that everyone here can be extraordinarily proud of.
At some point someone has to shoot back. The NKs have already torpedoed a South Korean ship and now live shelling.
Well - Big Bad Gibbs did come out with a statement - I don’t think NK wants to make him mad - everyone saw how he acted in India during a press conference...and no one wants to see that again! Excuse me while I go and puke...
I suspect The Imam will call upon the pot-belly dictator's long lost love to rub his belly.
"I Wuv Maddie Wong Time!"
"I vote PRESENT!"
Quick, dispatch Hans Blix to deliver a strongly worded letter
Press Secretary Robert Gibbs calls on North Korea to "halt its belligerent action." He says the United States is "firmly committed" to South Korea's defense, and to the "maintenance of regional peace and stability."
That's tellin' them! Why I bet a strongly worded letter from Hillary will follow too!
These NK guys don't know who they're messin' with.
Oh .. hell ....
Heaven help us with these leftist clowns running the show. Woke up this morning to that Newsweek Meachum moron saying on MSNBC this was just NK trying to make little kim il look tough..nothing to worry about..move along.
Liberals see no problem here...it’s just a crazy man with nukes.
Obama has ordered a “time-out” for North Korea and 15 minutes on the “naughty step”. That’ll teach them...
Obama gets his crisis just in the nick of time.
maintenance of regional peace and stability.
Well that’s already blown, now what are you going to do?
