North Korea threatens offensive Nuclear strikes

Remember when President George W. Bush included North Korea in "the axis of evil"? Many people scoffed at his "simplistic" and "moralist" labeling of the regime. I wonder if they are scoffing now as Kim Jong Il threatens to use their nukes against anyone who "offends the dignity" of North Korea "even a little bit."


This is why the dream of nuclear disarmament is false. It only takes one madman who keeps his nukes to blackmail the whole planet.

Unfortunately, doing nothing is as good as agreeing to let North Korea build nuclear weapons. What are more sanctions going to do? North Korea's population is already starving. I don't know what can really be done at this point, but something new needs to be tried.

Perhaps we need to flood the country with food (attached with pamphlets of where it came from) and hope for a revolt... though I'm not sure what literacy is in North Korea.
