NK can't reach California, let alone send a nuke up it's butt.
NK isn't crazy, and lil' kim isn't going out in some "blaze of glory," as if this is a western shootout.
There will be no grand war with NK...
Oh but wait, that's boring to say. Lets just pretend like everything going to hell in a handbasket and ride the fear high for a few more days. After that we'll lose all interest.
What will we do for our adrenaline dose of panic? We'll have to invent a time machine, and go back 1 month to when the swine flu was going to end the world. After that, we can go back 4 months ago, when the economy was going to end the world. Then we can go back to 2005 when the world was going to end because NK had a nuclear bomb (oh wait, we've come full circle, haven't we.)
Boy, the world has been ending a lot lately.. Glad I get to watch it happen all over the news and these forums every other week.
What's going to cause the end of the world next week? I'm going to guess some sort of bacteria contaminating our food. Or maybe rogue space debris crashing down on peoples houses.

I do wonder if the Cold war has just restarted ?
If a war was triggered and South Korea was attacked then if USA stepped in do any of you imagine Russia and China not taking sides ?

I think Kim has lost it for the last time.
Biden and Powells comments about a test in 6 months just got more credible.
North Korea previously has warned the South that its joining the program would be considered an act of war.

You know I wonder if those rumours of Kim having a heart attack or something last year were true. Maybe he wants to start off a war before it's too late for him to see it. I mean why spend years training up an army and never use it? He spent more on his armed forces than helping his own people, if he didn't do anything they'd probably freak out.... then again they ARE VERY loyal to him I suppose.....

North Korea and South Korea are still technically at war, no peace treaty was ever signed.
I think NK is whining for attention from a new administration in the U.S.
I may be wrong, but that's the impression I'm getting.
