North Korea is a tinderbox primed to explode give or take a year or so. Mobile phone technology means that those lucky enough to live near the South Korean border or indeed China can pick up their phone signal and information will get through about the outside world. Either that or the party elite system will implode.

Whatever happens it is the ordinary North Korean I feel sorry for.

False. Maybe near the China border but definitely not near the SK border. Along with the 4 mi buffer zone and hundreds of miles of barbed wire electric fences. The US installed what looks like cell phone towers, but they block all radio waves from going into NK and coming out of NK. If anyone has been near the DMZ they'll contest to that too because you wont have any cell phone reception near there.

Actually you can. There was a recent documentary on BBC on a programme called Panorama. The reporter was staying near the DMZ and said he was suprised to pick up a signal from outside NK on his mobile phone.

Watch about 10 mins into the documentary. Enjoy.

You mean Israel, Right ? Threatening ultimatum with her Samson Option. Why no sanction on Israel ?

What's good for the goose must be good for the gander but so far as anyone can see, that isn't so.


Israel has shown a history of nuclear restraint, also, a coordinated effort to try and wipe them out kind of gives the UN a soft spot for them (although that soft spot is likely in their heads, for choosing to live right in the middle of everyone who wants to see them most dead).
Israel and NK are apples and oranges. Especially since the Samson Option is both unofficial, and defensively offensive, not outright attacks, but meant as a deterrence. NK is not shouting about nukes as a deterrent, but instead as an attack threat.



Public Service ? Come on Gaz, you've been here a long time and know better than that.


Loudmouthed little dictators with weapons of mass destruction are a public nuisance, so yes, ridding the world of them is nothing but a public service. Granted, Kim isn't the only one in the world, but he certainly is currently the loudest one, and you can only take a fly buzzing you so long before you swat it.

If it weren't for Geroge Bush's Axis of Evil speech the situation might have been totally different by now.

We all had such high hopes when N & S Korea marched in together at the Sydney Olympics. It really was a WOW experience.

And in came that idiot and messed up half the world. Completely tone deaf.

Bush was simply the mouthpiece (and one chosen for lineage, not ability), his cronies were really behind the moves that were made. And a lot of THEM were still in power and influence upon Bush's departure from the Oval Office. Alot of them STILL are.
