Posted on 11/23/2010 3:13:15 AM PST by tobyhill
The White House is strongly condemning North Korea's artillery attack against the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong.
In a statement released before dawn Tuesday, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs calls on North Korea to "halt its belligerent action."
He says the United States is "firmly committed" to South Korea's defense, and to the "maintenance of regional peace and stability."

God help our country with Obama in charge
He failed already and the thing just started. He works fast.
I just find it funny that Obama was there, and now this.
I do not trust this admin even in a time of war.
Yes he did.
“He says the United States is “firmly committed” to South Korea’s defense, and to the “maintenance of regional peace and stability.”
These strongly worded “condemnations” are getting a bit old. Bombs speak louder than words.
NK realizes the o is a single term President and they need to move out smartly to make any advances before the next change...because the next change won’t be nearly as friendly.
Communist death toll continues to mount up...
as America embraces the destructive ideology.
Yes he did.
He says the United States is firmly committed to South Koreas defense, and to the maintenance of regional peace and stability.
These strongly worded condemnations are getting a bit old. Bombs speak louder than words.
Obama and Gibbs are like 2 of the 3 stooges - throw Biden in and you’ve got the 3rd. Sadly they’re so ineffective at protecting this country, yet OMG get out of the way on his push to ruin this country or he’ll run you over - he’s that successful at ruining us.
I’m truly frightened that not only could he have orchestrated or not condemned this if it was hinted at, but Israel’s his next target.
You think we should bomb them? Should we ask the South Koreans or just bomb? It was their country that was attacked and it’ll be their country that will deal with the blow back from our unilaterally bombing North Korea.
I spent 13 months over there in the 70's and US forces in Korea can more than stun the North whenever they want to; probably China too.
This is all for TV consumption and head games.
Maybe we should withdraw from South Korea being we have less interest in SK than we do in Iraq and Afghanistan?
WTF is wrong with people
wait dont have to answer it
I agree with you, but I also can't help thinking that it was our country that made the deals with the North Koreans, during the Clinton administration, that have allowed them to become nuclear. One could argue, of course, that this would have happened anyway, but we certainly didn't help things. Sometimes I feel that we are at a period of history similar to Germany in the early to mid-30s, when the building blocks of disaster were being sown but much of the world was oblivious.
I dunno what some of you guys above are expecting. A war with North Korea is not in US interest. Let South Korea deal with North Korea, its not our problem. Let the SK youngsters risk their own lives since they hate US so much
This has more to do with China testing Obama’s weakness.... and Obama is no Ronald Reagan...
LOL @ Obama! The SK knows it won’t get any help from the North Koreans in Washington!
Obama’s more likely to retaliate against conservatives than he is to take action to defend an ally. He’s a communist himself - he and N. Korea are on the same side.
