White House press secretary Jay Carney said Friday that the administration wouldn't be surprised if North Korea followed through on threats to launch a missle.
"We've obviously seen the reports that North Korea may be making preparations to launch a missile. We're monitoring this situation cclosely, and we would not be surprised to see them take such an action," Carney said during a press briefing.
"We have seen them launch missiles in the past and the United Nations Security Council has repeatedly condemned them as violations of the Norths obligations under numerous Security Council resolutions, and it would fit their current pattern of bellicose, unhelpful and unconstructive rhetoric and actions."
North Korea reportedly has moved missile and launch equipment to its east coast, and the regime asked foreign governments Friday to pull their ambassadors from the country, saying it could not guarantee their safety as of April 10, Reuters reports. The North Korean government signaled war is inevitable because of the "increasing threat from the United States" and cited the joint military exercises the United States is conducting with South Korea, according to the Reuters report.

That and to take the focus off of the economy & unemployment and millions on the dole.
obama wouldn’t mind having a war himself. He’d probably just like to have it a few years from now when his term is almost up.
If the Norks do a damn thing in the States, Pyongyang becomes glass. JMHO
Hmmm. I wonder what is coming down the pike that Soetoro needs to distract us from..?
In that Agreed Framework, North Korea was GIVEN two twin, light water nuclear reactors from the U. S. - - [since Bill Clinton designated that Agreed Framework as a 'deal'...Congress had no say in it!!] Thank you Bill & Hillary Clinton (and democrats) for fully loading up North Korea with plutonium bombs!
Google: "Clinton Bankrolled North Korea's Nuke Program"
Not to mention, this proof from Albright's words herself:
Google: "FLASHBACK: Albright: North Korea 'Cheated' on Clinton Nuke Agreement"
Current Status !!
KEDO announced November 21, 2003 that it would suspend construction of the two light-water nuclear reactors in North Korea for one year beginning December 1. The suspension came in response to Pyongyangs failure to meet the conditions necessary for continuing the project, according to the KEDO announcement.
.....North Korea reacted December 12 by announcing that it would restart the nuclear facilities governed by the Agreed Framework....the construction of the future light-water reactors was far behind schedule. The first reactor was initially slated for completion in 2003 but was not likely to be operational until 2008 at the earliest." (which brings us now to today, 3/31/2013)
Again, thanks Hillary and democrats; look what you've brought upon us now!
This evil North Korean government deserves to be blasted back to the stone age. We can thank Harry S (for nothing) Truman for allowing this puny monster to grow. Had he the gonads to allow MacArthur to go after China, at that point in time, America would be much better off today.
Further his honoring the agreement made by his simple-minded socialist predecessor to Stalin, thereby giving him Eastern Europe resulted in statistically our loss of WWII. We should have said ‘hell, no!’ and chased them back to Moscow after having emasculated the Russian bear.
