Analysis: N. Korea crisis latest blow to Obama’s nuclear agenda

KOREA-NORTH/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama has set the goal of eventually ridding the world of nuclear arms as a central theme of his presidency, but North Korea’s defiance and other recent setbacks have raised fresh doubts about whether he can turn his vision into reality.

With Obama’s broader nuclear agenda seemingly imperiled at home and abroad, he now faces a test of whether he can salvage credibility for U.S. leadership in dealing effectively with more immediate threats like the one posed by Pyongyang.

Seriously? Now he’s responsible for a nutcase whom the previous administration termed part of the ‘axis of evil’?

Next we’ll be reading about how the death of the miners in New Zealand is a failing of the administration’s mine safety policies.

When did Thompson Reuters become a fanboy for News Corporation?

I voted with my feet – dropped Reuters from my favorites and inserted Bloomberg there instead.


I’m mystified by your objection to this story.

Our analysis piece lays out Obama’s goal, and points out that recent events have made it more difficult to achieve. Who can argue with that? GBU Editor
