Understatement of the day

From the NYT:

[…]the National Security Council released a statement saying that [a nuclear test] would “severely undermine our confidence in North Korea’s commitment to denuclearization.”

If my friend Ted had a steak dinner it would undermine my confidence in his commitment to vegetarianism.

If the local parish priest attended an orgy, it would undermind my confidence in his vow of celibacy.

  2. Jonny: I don’t believe you grasp the distinction between soft-pedaling and diplomacy.

    Joe: So has DARPA finished developing those autonomous robotic tunneling mines then?
