White House Response To North Korea Nuclear Threat
This plain-speaking young man in his deep red and gold robes, praying with such intent for all of us, a living Buddha in his own right, expressed a deep compassion for the suffering of the entire planet and all of the living beings on it as he spoke of the nuclear threat.
Iran's top nuclear official had announced his country was near initiating uranium enrichment at a new plant, and the recent leadership change in North Korea means added uncertainty about one of the world's most unpredictable nuclear weapons states.
President Obama's vision of a world free of nuclear weapons is straight out of Reagan's playbook. The New START treaty shows his resolve to keep America secure, just as the elder Republican did.
There is a real danger that if Iran had nuclear weapons capability it could transfer that to other groups. But the particular threat that Israel is talking up -- that of a conventional nuclear strike from Iran -- is overblown.
