    Something new to worry about

    Any suggestions? They're as crazy as Iran and they are almost ready to show off their new powers.

    That stupid little country has got to know that any serious threat will cause them to be beaten like a rented mule. This is all just posturing. That's why Japan didn't bother to shoot it down.

    China will step on them hard if they stray too far into being a true danger. Or they'll very publically step aside and say, "have at 'em" to the Western world.

    shrug...

    Bush called them out a long time ago when he talked about the Axis of Evil, so nobody should be surprised by this latest event.

    No problem...we'll have to deal with them eventually. That's all.

    You must admit they are very self destructive. They had as much chance as S. Korea to prosper and instead they turned their country into a POS. I have trouble imagining China OKing a full out bombing assault near their border but then again, I'm not an analyst. I'm a big fan of S. Korea and I hope nothing goes wrong.

    Even China objected to this latest show by it's little sidekick:

    In recent weeks even China, North Korean's only remaining ally, sent a high level delegation into Pyongyang to convey a message of constraint. Today, China expressed "regret" over the incident. In the past, China has supported North Korea's right to develop its space program.
