The 'usual drill'? Susan Rice comment on NK nuclear test belies severity of development

As a nuclear North Korea proves once again that it’s improving its technology and moving close to marrying a small nuclear device with a more powerful rocket, the United States’ initial reaction Tuesday was a big ho-hum.

Asked Tuesday morning whether she expects a strong condemnation from the United Nations, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice said: “We’ll do the usual drill.”

It was a surprising response to an international incident that was largely seen as a threat to the U.S. and one that prompted the U.N. Security Council to call an emergency meeting of world representatives.

In other words, they don’t really care.

It’s really difficult for me to get worked up about the idea of foreign threats any more.

This crowd doesn’t mind if a few hundred thousand Americans get irradiated. Serve us right for being ‘arrogant and dismissive’.

Don't care? You are far too nice. I think they wouldn't mind seeing their own country get nuked. I believe they (the rats) are really Evil, with a capital E.

What difference does it make?

Do people realize Hilary’s disgusting outburst was the perfect expression of liberal nihilism.

Nothing matters, so long as they are in power.

Exactly, and if our allies like Taiwan and South Korea get fried, well these leftists think those countries are too democratic and too free market anyways

At the least she is being honest for a change.

They will do nothing, just like before.

Well??? Perhaps a strongly worded letter LMAO.

Madelaine Albright:

“The United States does NOT want to be the only superpower...

Yes, they do not care. What you see as a dangerously blase attitude to NK nukes is to them a mark of SOPHISTICATION.

Inwardly they’re PROUD of it.

Exactly. Were these liberals on the Titanic 100 years ago they’d have commented on the quality of the music as people drowned all about them.

The North Koreans were reacting to a YouTube video that mocked Dear Leader.

The filmmaker will be arrested soon.

U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice said: “We’ll do the usual drill.” This dumb female is too stupid to know she has been thrown under the buss and run over twice. She just keeps coming back for more. If she had any pride in herself, she would have resigned months ago. Suzy, you will never be anything more than Obama’s squished puppet.

I’m getting to the point where I don’t give a sh_t either. In fact I would kind of like to see NK test fire about a dozen nukes, all pointed in the direction of Washington DC, NYC, Boston, LA, SF & Seattle. Mostly libturds, socialists, unions & entitlement takers in those cities!

I hope I can leave first, because I am 45 miles from San Francisco, in the belly of the beast. I hope to retire soon and leave the country.

Well, they don't, but they've got immunity.

See, Barack is only striving for Whirled Peas, and if making nice like Mr. Rogers doesn't work, then it's the Other Guy's fault for taking out San Francisco and Seattle .... not Barky's fault.

Because it's never Barky's fault. His positions are perfect, his motives pure, his efforts full of striving against dastardly Old American forces (numerous "isms", typical white people, you name it). Barky is pure-d Good Guy, White Hat, the Perfection of Good Intentions.

Nothing will ever stick to Barky. Not even if a 50-kt cookie goes off in the lower atmosphere right over San Francisco.

That would be Bush's Fault.

I've been saying for a while that any terror strike with nukes would land mostly on Democratic-voting counties, so that failures of security policy by Obama's team would be doubly self-defeating -- hence, the fecklessness is a little puzzling.
