“A world without weapons”

Following North Korea’s missile launch, Obama lays out his nuclear dream


050409_obamaPresident Obama used a planned speech in Prague today to speak out out against North Korea’s missile launch. “North Korea broke the rules, once again, by testing a rocket that could be used for long range missiles,” he said. “Words must mean something . . . The world must stand together to prevent the spread of these weapons.” During the address in front of a crowd of 20,000, Obama called for a “world without weapons,” said he would call on the Security Council to “deliver a strong message” to North Korea and promised to reduce the size and military dependence on his own country’s nuclear arsenal.

  1. “Imagine all the people, living life in peace”.

    Sounds familiar. Those crazy hippies weren’t just blowing smoke (excuse the pun).

  2. wouldn’t it be wonderful. but i really can’t be too optimistic about this ever happening. obama’s hardest sell is going to be to the US, but good luck to him

  3. Wow, Korea fires a missile and Obama’s response is to disarm himself. I guess we’ll be seeing them firing more missiles.
