Monday Morning Starts with a Bang

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Speaking from the White House, President Bush on Monday called North Korea's claim of a nuclear test "a provocative act" and said the United States is working to confirm that such a test was carried out.

"Once again North Korea has defied the will of the international community and the international community will respond," Bush said.

After speaking with the leaders of South Korea, Russia, China and Japan, Bush said the nations agree on an "immediate response by the United Nations Security Council."

The council will consider the matter during its session on Monday. (Posted on CNN 10:12 a.m.)


Great. A wacko with a penchance for Hollywood films now has nuclear capabilities. A word of advice to G.W., start working on how to pronounce "nuclear" now. You're going to be saying it quite a bit in the days to come.

On an Anderson note, don't expect to see him standing in front of the video wall tonight. He has a speaking obligation in San Francisco with none other than Tom Brokaw. So, you'll most likely get one hour of the "I Try Hard to Be Snarky" John Roberts as the second hour of "360" has been interrupted to bring us a repeat of "CNN Presents: Undercover in the Secret State."

UPDATE: David Doss just blogged about tonight's show. No mention of Anderson and whether he would be hosting or not. In my humble opinion, it would behoove Cooper to host the first hour and not let John Roberts take the reigns on this show and its subject matter....a possible $40,000 speaking fee be damned.

Jade --great post! We'll hear
"nucular" for days to come -lol it's hard to concentrate on what he's is saying when he can't pronounce this word correctly. He'd beter take some lessons (and not only in speech), this is some serious s*t.
On a lighter note, Anderson should be happy that Kim Jong Il didn't decide to test a bomb last week during his African coverage -)

HI!
I think we won't have a lot of John Roberts, TG!!!
They are going to repeat the CNN special Behind the Secret State ( or whatever it is named )

Thanks for the great post, Jade!

I am worried about the reactions from this development. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

You know I just saw the end of an interview with Chris Hill, the Asst. Sec. of State, on TSR and it only confirms my suspicions that something is in the works towards North Korea. This situation will be interesting to say the least.

One hour of JR is plenty. I'll switch the channel and watch Studio 60...lol.

@jade -- from yesterday's transcript, since you intended to miss the show: -lol

ROBERTS: I would think so, yes. The snake charmer says he spent a lot of time exercising his legs to make sure that he could jump away if any of the snakes tried to bite them, which it looks like all of them did.
HILL: Oh! It looks like, yes, one sort of jumped back at him, like, "Don't you be kissing me, buddy."
ROBERTS: Yes, exactly. You know, it's a reaction that a lot of women have when I try to kiss them, as well.
HILL: That's why it's a good thing you got married. There you go.
ROBERTS: Yes. Thanks, Erica.
HILL: Have a good night, John.


First he's dumb as a box of rocks. Now, women jump back from him if he tries to kiss them -- what's going to be the next revelation? -o

MANIFESTO

Don't think for me. Don't assume what I want to hear or read. Give me facts. Give me reasons. But not yours. Bring me debate. Enlighten me. Today, accountability is masked behind anonymity; bylines are hidden by zeros and ones. Everyone publishes; everyone is "in the know." Ethics are non-existent. Speculation is king. The truth is masked and a hostage. Empowered by our minds, WE ARE THE FREAKSPEAKERS!
