Daily Kor for April 21, 2010

North Korea's preparing for a third nuclear test, supposedly. And I say let 'em! Then taunt them that we thought that was just a bunch of TNT detonated in a mine shaft, so they'll detonate another one to prove us wrong. Lather, rinse, repeat, and eventually all their nukes will be gone. I should be president.

  1. If they prove that that ROK ship was sunk by hostile Nork activity, what in the world will they do? If they declare war, they'll surely drag us into it, and then...But on the other hand, the Norks can't get used to the idea that they can unleash floods, sink ships, etc. with impunity.

  2. We had a discussion about this. I think there's a lot of serious stuff that can be done without going to war or even resorting to military attack.

    You're welcome to leave your thoughts.

  3. You've got to hand it to the North... they just don't quit trying to get our attention.
