The Mouse That Roared

N. Korea approves nuclear strike on United States
SEOUL — North Korea dramatically escalated its warlike rhetoric on Thursday, warning that it had authorised plans for nuclear strikes on targets in the United States.
"The moment of explosion is approaching fast," the North Korean military said, warning that war could break out "today or tomorrow".

Pyongyang's latest pronouncement came as Washington scrambled to reinforce its Pacific missile defences, preparing to send ground-based interceptors to Guam and dispatching two Aegis class destroyers to the region.

Tension was also high on the North's heavily-fortified border with South Korea, after Kim Jong-Un's isolated regime barred South Koreans from entering a Seoul-funded joint industrial park on its side of the frontier.

Oh, I suppose they could do some regional damage. Especially if Zero can't decide whether to launch defenses, a la Benghazi. I'm not sure who is playing as his puppet master. Though, if I would have to guess, I would say it is the same people behind our quantitative easing and the euro's crushing politics of late. When an affair by the head(s) of state won't do, nuclear war it is.

My guess is, like a teen with his first opportunity, he'll probably end up with a wet pocket rather than a first encounter. One can hope. That would end a lot of the nuclear proliferation happening, if too it will distract the many from the thievery of bankers. I bet they hate losing a chip like that, but... what else can they do? There backs, at this point, really are against the wall. And us peasants have become quite comfortable and won't have that stolen.

Should be interesting.

Doom - I really don't think Kim Jong-Un is irrational either. There may be something else behind all the bluster.

Never in modern history have we had a population more brainwashed and dependent.

WoFat - oh, the wonder of teachers unions.

There is. Just heard, two of his torpedo subs have gone missing. Small, 10-man jobs. Although that even the military is starving has something to do with it.

And yet, I think some of this was a created problem. Most of it or all of it actually. Whether his strings are being pulled directly or indirectly matters little. As for me, I don't assume he is sane. Even if so, a sane but very alone man can become quite paranoid when there is a bump in the night, especially a basically paper tiger.
