Oh man, I cant tell you either how painfull! Amen to that!
They mean two totally different things! Gad is this what we are becoming?
Rapidly left behind by other countries education systems?
No wonder the ecomony is in such dire straights!
We never learned how to live within our means, let alone balance a checkbook. How many could even find iraq on a map? How many knows who lives at 1600 pennsylvania avenue? How many knows who lives in a pineapple under the sea. No wonder I picked this name! Some may think its not a big deal. Sorry but it changes your whole threads meaning!
If you want to be understood and taken seriously its important. Thats all.
I am tired of n. korea, not neccasarily cautious! You know,
I found a dictionary for 50 cents at the second hand store.......
if you punch a word in a browser search field it will give you the meanings!
Would you rather lose your wits or loose them?
(That ought to keep 'em busy for awhile mtmmaraca!)

About 40% of North Koreans are at risk of going hungry in the coming months because of food shortages, the United Nations is forecasting.
In a joint statement, the Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Food Program report that 8.7 million residents of the Hermit Kingdom "will urgently need food assistance" because of fertilizer and fuel shortages.

North Korea only has a single threat the world is unprepared to face:
Detonating a nuclear device at the proper height to fry electronics and satellites the world over.
One swing, and Military Intelligence, Economics, and Global Communications die.
Taepodong-1 is a three-stage intermediate-range ballistic missile developed in North Korea and currently in service there. The missile was derived originally from the Scud rocket, and can allegedly serve as both a nuclear delivery system and a space launch vehicle.
Based on the size of the missile, the fuel composition, and the likely fuel capacity, it is estimated that a two stage variant would have a range of around 4,000 km (2,500 statute miles) and a three stage variant would be capable of reaching as far as 4,500 km (2,800 statute miles), giving it potentially the longest range in the North Korean missile arsenal.[

I think that North Korea realizes it is in an ultimate loosers position and the nuclear test and missles is their attempt to appear powerful.
List of demands
In a statement issued on Friday, North Korea's foreign ministry said: "Replacing the cease-fire mechanism by a peace mechanism on the Korean Peninsula would lead to putting an end to the US hostile policy" towards the North.
It added that a peace treaty would "automatically result in the denuclearisation of the peninsula".
On Thursday a North Korean official had said that "not a single nuclear weapon will be needed for us if the US nuclear threat is removed".
North Korea is a hell hole for the millions that live there.
It has no future economically. It is essentially land bound because the US Navy controls its sea access. Their only up side they have is a good supply of home made generic viagra to keep their tin horn leaders satisfied.
IMHO North Korea will go the way of the dodo bird and in the next 20 years it will collapse and be absorbed much like west absorbed east Germany, the north and south will be reunited.
BTW if NK EVER put a live nuc on one of those missles and fired it, can you imagine how fast that country would become a nuclear wasteland?
You have India, Japan, Australia and not to mention the US that would gladly participate in NKs demise!

Well the recent underground test by the north proves without a doubt that they have no intention of halting their nuclear program, the question ?
Would they use such a weapon in anger, I fear yes.

Good that you can find something worth laughing about when it comes to North Korea. I am sure you have 'sources' for that viagra claim?
