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.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
At this juncture, if that happens, I would be very surprised if this administration fights to win.
It does smell a bit like we’re doing something to poke the mad dog enough to get him to bite.
Obamatollah needs a distraction.
Announced today: 90 Million Americans NOT in workforce.
Lowest level since 1979.
It bothers me just a bit that one of the targets is Austin, TX.
That’s about 20 miles as the crow flies from my house.
Who knows what the Norks smuggled into Texas across the border. It’s not as if its being enforced.
I know what would be happening right now if Ike, JFK, Nixon or Reagan were president, and it wouldnt be the US sitting around waiting for an attack.
That “employment problem” isn’t Baraq’s fault.
The MSM has already deemed it due to sequestration.
And of course we all know that’s caused by Republicans.
This is the WH telling Un it’s okay to launch a missile.
Not surprised? Did our enemies in D.C. give it to them?
Maybe the White House should issue a preemptive apology.
Jay, the I don’t no nothing guy, weighs in on this the day after reports that the WH is toning down it’s rhetoric on NK? The king wants and needs this war to remain in power in the US and distract from the lousy economy and high unemployment which has become the new norm.
Don't worry, the President thinks you can absorb a strike.
Supposedly, that was an old map of targets from W’s time.
