You’re About to Enter the No-spin Zone

"North Korea broke the rules once more by testing a rocket that could be used for a long-range missile," Obama said. "This provocation underscores the need for action — not just this afternoon at the U.N. Security Council, but in our determination to prevent the spread of these weapons."

Yikes! That’s quite a tongue-lashing. The Russian foreign minister went even further:

"We urge all states concerned to show restraint in judgments and action in the current situation, and to be guided by objective data on the nature of North Korea's launch,"

It sounds like he wants to take a fair and balanced approach to the little pot-bellied pig. Watch out Kim! We’re going to sic Billy O’Reilly on you!
