It's really the media that hypes up these "Boogeymen" as you call them. Currently, the story of the hour is the clean up of Katrina/Rita but
eventually, those stories will fade into the sunset and new ones will play out.
The "War on Terror" is not some brief exercise; this thing will go on for years and years. I think we will be hit again before it's all said and
UBL is really an inspiration to his followers, nothing more these days.
As for North Korea and Kim Jung Il, I think they will eventually come to the table and give up their nuke program totally in return for aid since they
are in horrible shape. Despite all the bluster, N. Korea won't launch an attack because if they did, they would be taken out by the US and they know
Iran is a little more complex but I think they will eventually be in line. You can be sure Israel will get involved if they believe they are actually
The real big problem in the years to come in my view will be China, with 1+ billion people. They are already making some noise and soon, will be
flexing it's muscles and a powerhouse in the economic realm, competing with the US. The real key to remember is China's army... I heard they have
around 200,000,000 people enlisted?? Unreal.
