After brainstorming a bit, I wonder, if it is possible, that what we are seeing as the viewing public, is a smoke screen effect. What I mean specifically is, could this all be a plan orchestrated largely in part by NK's alliances with China and Russia?
There have been tensions growing between China/Russia and the US. Now we all know that the US and in some cases, Britain have influenced the globe with our alleged dominance. Both by military, and economic empires. But could these actions by NK, possibly sanctioned by China and Russia, be a test to see the response of the US, and its allies?
I have seen many responses, including my own, stating that NK won't do anything, and what not. But after thinking about, could it be, that the actions of NK, backed by its axis powers be a prelude to war?
Interesting concept....NK flex's it's muscles, with backing, and we respond in some form or fashion, giving the " axis " powers the alleged right to respond?
The developments of this situation should be watched intently.edit on 13-12-2010 by Whereweheaded because: (no reason given)

There is no way that China and the US will meet on the battlefield anytime soon. The US is a gravy-train to the Chinese. Not only do they have a mountain of money invested in our economy, but their own rising economy is completely dependent on the west. China is only doing so well because the west buys their cheap plastic crap.
China will ride this gravy-train until we stop leaking gravy.
