President Obama warned North Korea on Thursday that his administration will take "all necessary steps" to defend the United States from aggression and urged Pyongyang to tone down its threats.
"Now is the time for North Korea to end the kind of belligerent approach that they've been taking, and to try to lower temperatures," he said in the Oval Office, after a meeting with United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. "Nobody wants to see a conflict on the Korean Peninsula."
North Korea, he said, must "observe the basic rules and norms" set by the international community, including the UN. "We will continue to try to resolve some of those issues diplomatically, even as I indicated to the Secretary General, that the United States will take all necessary steps to protect its people and to meet our obligations under our alliances in the region.
Ban said he is "deeply concerned" by Kim Jong-un's latest threats, which are "not helpful."

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
oh no they have no idea, he’ll write that letter asking them , what ever will they do after that.
Lets hope it does not go through the US postal service as it might be late too
Yeah, I’ll bet the NorKs are peeing their pants right now....
All necessary steps? It’s not a golf course, Obama.
And what if Obambi's letter can't be delivered because it's a Saturday . . . Oh Me Oh Mi . . . what can our pipe-stem armed girly boy do to stop these nukes . . .
Really? How about taking ‘all necessary steps’ to CLOSE OUR BORDERS!?!?
Commie Putz, indeed! *SPIT*
You’re too kind.
Paper tiger ping!
as for the fact that this azzhat HAS any missile defense systems with which to defend the US— BLAME BUSH (and Reagan)
I am convinced that a North Korean nuke exploding on US territory would be met with Obama running to the UN begging for help. Obama would never use US nukes in response and would at most send in a few cruise missiles and then seek a negotiated settlement.
This time he’s sending Rodman AND Madonna.
Obama saying the U.S. will do everything necessary to defend the U.S. undermines South Korea and Japan. Those two countries depend on the U.S. nuclear umbrella. Without absolute assurance that the U.S. will also do everything necessary to defend them from a nuclear power, which North Korea is, they must consider nuking-up.
The same is true for Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Iraq. They also depend on the U.S. nuclear umbrella. Were we to go wobbly with respect to Iran, they too would have to consider nuking-up.
The truth is, a weak U.S. will result in dozens of countries having nuclear weapons and make probable the escalation of a regional conflict somewhere in the world, into a nuclear war.
Laughter will do that to lots of people.
If I’m SK or Japan, I’m looking at today (with Baraq til 2017) and then Hillary!.
Hell yeah I’m gonna cover my @ss.
America needs to man up.
Re-build our industry.
Stop exporting our factories. And re-industrialize.
The GOP needs to very prominently get in front of this, or it will cease to matter.
Boy O Boy!
That's really putting the BURN on 'em!
Wag the dog.
Nothing is going to come from this. It’s all bluster... from both sides.
What are “all necessary steps?” Is our leaders’ plan to bore Kim Jong Un, until he sleeps on his stomach, then take advantage of him?
Translation : “it’s open season on the US because I am a gigantic pussy”
Yea, right: Obama is a liar. EVERYTHING COMING OUT OF HIS MOUTH IS A LIE and little coke-head fat boy Kim knows it.
Obama has done more to destroy the country from within than anything little coke-head fat boy Kim could ever do. Obama is nothing but a paper tiger who will do NOTHING no matter what little coke-head fat boy Kim does. Oh I take that back, Obamessiah will read a strongly worded statement from one of his teleprompters reprimanding little coke-head fat boy Kim = bad little coke-head fat boy Kim, naughty little coke-head fat boy Kim. If you fire another missile we will be very, very angry with you and only give you $500 million dollars in food and fuel aid so that you can turn around and use it to feed your people so they can get big and strong so they can kill Americans and destroy America." ...that is the extent of Obamessiahs threats.
“All necessary steps”
1. Play an extra round of golf.
2. Meet with Harry Reid and swap Nancy Pelosi jokes.
3. Go cruising for some “action” on N. Capitol Street.
4. Tell Joe Biden a Joe Biden joke and see if he gets it.
“all necessary steps” to defend the United States
You notice he doesn’t mention anything about reciprocal action.
...immediately after the SEQUESTER, when his military will be allowed to leave port, fly their aircraft, and drive their vehicles again...ASAP,...Pronto,...Post Haste...
NO ONE will be allowed to destroy the United States except Obama!/s;)
Perhaps so, but it’s my bet it’s because they’re laughing so hard...
“All necessary steps” means the grain ships are being loaded up with hard winter durum as we type.
The fact that we are economically bankrupt is a further reason for the governments of other countries to consider what they must do to defend themselves.
Which steps; going to a bathhouse, or hiding under the bed-covers?
Obama has never confronted any totalitarian entity. The only military fatalities he is responsible for are those trying to protect our embassies.
The North Koreans must be shivering in their boots!
Yup- and the ‘necessary step’ is to dissarm american citizens so that incase of invasion, we’re no threat to the invadign army
“deeply concerned” OH look out North Korea, the bower in chief is deeply concerned. Sheesh.
he got his crayon and he is writing to the UN right now
How about a shout out to acknowledge all the treaties that the US has signed over the past 70 years to protect all of our many friends and allies in the Far East??
What about that, PUTZ????
Okay, fine: he's a lousy golfer. Dividing and finger-pointing are the two things ...
Idiot wants a war. A real superpower leader would ignore the whole thing, not giving the Fat Boy what he craves: attention. Instead, the Obama is giving respect and crawling down to NK’s level.
Be ready to win that war in one hour flat, and otherwise deal with real issues.
Don’t laugh, the Ph.Ds in English at the White Hut are working overtime as we speak on that teleprompter memo!
Don’t think for a minute that Baby Kim is not seeing what we here at FR are seeing about Osambo.
He doesn’t owe him or his “Office of Presidency” any respect, for reasons of race, Affirmative Action or alleged education, having attended pretty good schools himself. I bet Kimmie knows the correct number of US states and what language is spoken in Austria. No illusions about Soetero are required for any reason outside the borders of this land.
