Kerry to North Korea: Don't test missile By BRADLEY KLAPPER | Associated Press 1 hr 18 mins ago
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry delivered a stark warning to North Korea on Friday not to test-fire a mid-range missile, while rejecting a new U.S. intelligence report suggesting significant progress in the communist regime's nuclear weapons program.
Kicking off four days of talks in an East Asia beset by increasing North Korean threats, Kerry told reporters in Seoul that Pyongyang and its enigmatic young leader would only increase their isolation if they launched the missile that American officials believe has a range of some 2,500 miles or enough to reach the U.S. territory of Guam.
"If Kim Jong Un decides to launch a missile, whether it's across the Sea of Japan or some other direction, he will be choosing willfully to ignore the entire international community," Kerry told reporters. "And it will be a provocation and unwanted act that will raise people's temperatures."
Kerry said the test would be a "huge mistake" for Kim.

Kerry (Mr ‘lets go home now’) and Hagel (Mr ‘do nothing’) must scare the daylights out of Kim.
I see a dusted off sternly worded letter from Hillary.
And then hope he isn't real mad that he'll have to show up in the "war room," lean forward and pout, and show disdain for what he might have to be told to do from Valerie Jarrett.
Best assessment have heard all day.
And then, he'll unload all his firepower on you in the form of a "Major Speech" on "good neighborliness."
That’ll teach ‘em!
And, if Valerie Jarrett lets the idiot read her speech on the teleprompter, he'll be allowed to bite his lower lip, have a pregnant pause or two, and then finish the speech . . . that is, if Valerie Jarrett or one of his other handlers lets him.
And point to the map for the camera's don't forget!
Wow! That will show 'em!
“And it will be a provocation and unwanted act that will raise people’s temperatures”
Said as Kerry bows to the PM of Japan,
who looks on with amusement at this
buddhist wannabe practicing what he learned
from his years negotiating on behalf of the NVA
Hey 3 purple heart rice in the butt guy, they aren’t going to test a missile.
They are going to use a missile and likely the nuclear warhead we now know they can put on top of it.
Kerry said “No ketchup for you....”
I’m surprised Ketchup Boy didn’t threaten the North Korean’s with being placed on “double-secret probation”.
The North Korean leadership is often referred to as “crazy.” On the contrary they have followed a very rational policy for three generations. They threaten the West and the South Koreans. The Western leadership responds with inane comments like, “it will be a provocation and unwanted act that will raise people’s temperatures.” Inane comments are followed by massive aid packages.
“You’re bweaking my bawls, Kerwy, you’re bweaking my bawls.”
Don’t you just want to b****-slap kerry? What a feckless putz. I wonder if he wrote him self up for a medal of some sort after making such a daring statement? ...or gave himself a Purple Heart for his temperature rising. Sheesh!
Thankfully, it is North Korea. HOPEfully, they are as inept as they appaear/
I can just hear Kerry now, speaking in a whiny child’s voice: You better too take me seriously, I served in Vietnam you know!
Yes... and like you said... the Norks are the “crazy” ones.
Crazy like foxes.
I still believe this is nothing more than one of North Korea’s periodic “PAY ATTENTION TO ME” temper tantrums. In a few days, it’ll fizzle, and Obama will get unwarranted adulation for having faced down this “bitter enemy.”
..... I can't help but ponder if this whole thing is a choreographed attempt to enable our Dear Leader to rise to the occasion and appear to fearlessly face off with the evil leader of the mighty and powerful DPRK and heroically prevent global thermal nuclear war. Then as we all breath a collective sigh of relief .... show the urgency for the disarming of the world of all nuclear weapons. Then in good trust and to show our seriousness to broker world peace .... move toward the disarming of America.
I heard on NBC this morning that the S. Korean ‘rapper’ Psy is having a concert tonight in Seoul, debuting his newest single. Might this be a ‘target’ for the N. Koreans?
OMG!!! That is so clever!!!
Kerry / Obama are giving fat boy a way out. They say sternly don’t launch. He ignores them and launches a missile into the sea and “shows them”. Obama says we are just glad no one was hurt but tells NK to never do it again. Fat boy thinks he showed the world how tough he is. Incident over.
Boy those N Koreans must be shaking in their boots after this warning from JFNK.
“Oh no, we might raise their temperatures if we launch missile”
I wonder what would be happening if Fred Thompson had had the motivation in his campaign and actually won two terms. I wonder what this situation would be like now.
WHAT A DORK
Team America: World Police (2004)
Kim Jong Il: Hans Brix? Oh no, not you again!
Oh, herro. Great to see you again, Hans!
Hans Blix: Mr. Il, I was supposed to be allowed to inspect your palace today, but your guards won’t let me enter certain areas.
Kim Jong Il: Hans, Hans, Hans! We’ve been frew this a dozen times. I don’t have any weapons of mass destwuction, OK Hans?
Hans Blix: Then let me look around, so I can ease the UN’s collective mind. I’m sorry, but the UN must be firm with you. Let me in, or else.
Kim Jong Il: Or else what?
Hans Blix: Or else we will be very angry with you... and we will write you a letter, telling you how angry we are.
Kim Jong Il: OK, Hans. I’ll show you. Stand to your reft.
Hans Blix: [Moves to the left]
Kim Jong Il: A rittle more.
Hans Blix: [Moves to the left again]
Kim Jong Il: Good.
[Opens up trap, Hans falls in]
What a pathetic statement! North Korea already knows all that you incredible idiot!
Good going Obama...Just what the country needs in time of crisis: A communist traitor negotiating for us. What’s he going to do, offer to push the button?
Re your possibility that this whole thing is choreographed to give the Forger in the WH an opportunity to shine as he gets Nork to stand down... (understanding that China would have to be on board and giving orders to Kimmie.)
A couple years ago I would have thought you were nuts, but frankly when Hollywood came out with a movie that made Nork the big danger and I think there was another one that elevated the previously unrespected Norks to major danger, I have to say it’s a genuine possibility.
I don’t credit Hollywood with much intelligence or sense about what’s really going on in the world so I don’t believe they perceived the danger earlier than most or even took it seriously as smarter people have done.
I have to believe that there was some other reason that they focused on Nork more than a year or two ago. It takes a while to actually crank a movie out.
I find it easy to agree as you speculate they are setting up the Forger as hero and then pimp total nuclear disarmament much as they have used Newtown to pimp gun control.
.... Of course the way it went down on film was highly improbable but it made for a fun movie. Well ... improbable .... unless the prez sent them a gold engraved invitation, laid down a red carpet for 'em and told the military to stand down.
.... In any case ..... GO WOLVERINES!!!
It is obvious that the moslem brotherhood has now Egyptian embassies here and that they could don North Korean uniforms, so to speak. So basically duel islamist citizens on US soil are already here ready to smuggle nukes.
North Korea can blackmail us through them.
North Korea can detonate smuggled NK weapons through their missions.
This is the issue.
And now China is saber rattling too.
America is attacked from inside and outside as we speak, courtesy of globalistas and Ben Gahzi agreement with muslim brotherhood proxy.
Meanwhile they talk of US unilateral nuclear disarmament, UN gun treaties and Assault Weapons ban.
Any one who cannot see the dangerous connecting dots is either a traitor or a useful idiot.
NK is hosting a marathon in a couple of days. With Taiwan athletes there, I don’t think NK would be foolish enough to start crap ..at least not till they are gone. Unless he uses them to protect his country from retaliation.
This, from our Secretary of State. Oh noes, "people's temperatures" will raise. The horror. The horror.
I'm pretty much done with this nation: a muslim communist as president; a traitorous secretary of state, and an appeasenik DOD secretary. Not to mention a wimpy Republican leader and Congress.
While I'll continue to post, I am making arrangements.
“We’re not testing, Mr. Kerry! This is rive raunch!”
