October 10, 2006

South Carolina's senators are weighing in on the nuclear testing being carried out by North Korea.

Republican senator Lindsey Graham tells News 12:

"Hopefully the international community will realize that rogue regimes bent on acquiring nuclear weapons must be forcefully dealt with before it's too late.

"The worst thing that could now happen is for the international community to be all talk and no action when it comes to North Korea."

Senator Jim DeMint is also weighing in. He says:

"North Korea's nuclear test is an unacceptable and aggressive act that threatens America and our allies. The world needs to wake up and realize just how real and dangerous the threats are against freedom."
