North Korea blowing off a nuclear bomb has definitely been the big story so far and it begs the question….just what does Kim Jong-Il hope to accomplish with all of this? He certainly doesn’t care about world opinion as he then proceeded to fire off some more missiles in a show of force. On a related note it could be added that the invasion of Iraq set a bad precedent for the world by showing that if you had no weapons of mass destruction you would get bombed whereas the more heavily armed North Korea gets a free ride with it’s nuclear deterrant.
Here is an interesting quote from an anonymous person, “North Korea is a proxy state of China. South Korea is a proxy state of the USA. The Korean war was actually a war of China vs the US, on Korean soil.”
