This from the BBC:
The world must show zero tolerance to North Korea and put pressure on it not to launch a nuclear test, the head of the UN's nuclear watchdog has said.
Mohamed ElBaradei said a test would have "disastrous political and environmental consequences".
The warning came amid fresh reports of intelligence suggesting North Korea may be preparing to test a nuclear weapon for the first time.
Well, this is just GREAT news!! The invasion of Iraq could prove to be more then just a big, "Oops!" We had A hot-headed Bush full of revenge invading an Iraq without WMD's. The weapons inspectors did not find anything and should have been given more time and I think everyone can agree on that point by now. Iraq was being watched day and night via satelites and via the northern and southern "no-fly zones." Even Bush now admits that we have no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved in the September 11th attacks. Yet here we are stuck in Iraq engaged in "nation building" for god knows how long and now North Korea is going to test a nuke??
Like no one saw that coming.
EVERYONE knows North Korea had nuclear weapons and/or was in the later stages of developing them and we go after IRAQ?!!
Again quoting ElBaradei in the BBC article:
"So enough rituals. Now the time has come after 12 years since we reported North Korea in non-compliance to the Security Council... [for all concerned parties] urgently to bite the bullet and find a comprehensive solution and avoid this escalating nuclear danger."
Way to keep your "eye on the ball" King George! America wants to help but we are busy playing "Army" with our toys over in the sandbox.
If North Korea moves on the United States and/or our allies in the South Asian-Pacific rim we would be pretty screwed with our "thumbs up our asses." We'd have to scramble and hope and pray that the rest of world would unite with us (even after our arrogant, idiotic actions in Iraq). Certainly we'd have to institute a draft since we have over-extended our troops in the Iraq war and have nothing left to protect the homeland from a REAL threat like North Korea!!
We could be pretty screwed for having gone after Iraq instead of N. Korea.
And you can thank our crazy, zealot "Uncle George" and his friends for that.
