The insensitive timing, let alone the provocation of these tests is remarkable. Where is our credibility? Imagine if North Korea , Iran , Pakistan or China were carrying out these same tests at this time. What would our response be? The unexamined assumption that we can continue these tests and behaviors while demanding the opposite of others begs explanation and defies reason. As Ghandi is so often quoted, "We must be the change we want to see in the world."

We can and must demand better of President Obama and our elected officials. Change must begin at home.  Let our collective voices be heard loud and clear. For ultimately the actions we take today define the world we hand to our children.  The choice is ours.
