Anybody notice how bold North Korea is getting lately? It's because they know we're involved with Iraq right now and the American people have always been weary of two front wars. They know their is a significant peacenik movement in this country and right now is their best opportunity to thumb their noses at us.

I've noticed. And I hope that thumbing their noses is all they have in mind. Considering the rather fragile state of the world right now, though, I wonder. Increasingly it seems we are just sitting upon a powder keg waiting for someone to get the match to the fuse before the wind luckily blows it out.

Just prior to their announcement to resume fuel reprocessing (plutonium extraction phase) Sneaky. Very sneaky.

At this stage I'd be willing to destroy the reactor and the fuel processing facilities; we could do it easily. Problem is the North Koreans would attack South Korea in response. Not an easy situation to resolve.

These suckers are tough, only way to win is to Incinerate them quick and totally, Truman should of done it. Ike should of done it (and China too). Not a snow balls chance in hell Bush will do it . He aint got the cajones to tell Fox to quit pissing on this side of the border.:mad:

The Chinese will adress the situation as they don't want anything screwing up theri economic growth. Negotiation will settle the matter.

North Korea is just hungry and cold. They need the reactors up and running to provide heat and electricity. Why you ask, cause we cut their throat when we halted them shipments of fuel oil. Even the United Nations got involved and cut out feeding millions of people over there.

Its a ploy to bring us back to the table to talk. Trying to blackmail us so to speak. Unfortunately its gonna turn into a war. Sad thing is if we get involved any deeper in the Desert we here are gonna be left thin and vulnerable cause the U.N. aint gonna help us out. Its volitile thats for sure. Getting a little edgy over here.

Best thing that can happen is if China and Russia tell them to knock it off. Which I dont think they will.

It's going to be pretty damn funny to see North Koreans backpedal when Iraq is done for rather swiftly...
