". . . clearly, this was a provocative and unprovoked and unwarranted action by North Korea. We, of course, have concern at all times that these kinds of irrational actions by North Korea potentially can provoke a broader crisis. We are focused on the immediate challenge before us and will be consulting, as I’ve said, with our partners in the coming days.
At the same time, we are looking at the longer term and what we want to see for the Korean Peninsula. And there are clear actions that North Korea has to take. And so we are looking at not only how we address the immediate challenge and the tragic and emotional – I mean, the tragedy that has occurred. Remember, this was an unprovoked action that resulted in the deaths of 46 South Korean sailors. This is abominable. It is not the way that civilized nations act towards one another."
Of course, civilized nations act towards one another by engaging in unprovoked wars based on fictitious weapons of mass destruction resulting in the deaths of over a million Iraqis, not one of whom was a South Korean sailor.
"Yemeni cleric advocates killing US civilians" What a monster! Of course, the cleric is an American citizen that the United States has already put on its assassination list, so maybe he's just a monster of irony.
