    And, surprise surprise, Kim-Jong Ill is throwing a tantrum.

    All I can say is...

    I find it interesting that Obama hasn't apologized in advance. Perhaps his testicles finally dropped.

    July 9 (some three months after sinking of ship) "The United Nations Security Council on Friday unanimously condemned the sinking of a South Korean warship more than three months after the event, but its statement did not name North Korea as the aggressor. However, Susan Rice, US envoy to the United Nations who introduced the statement, said its meaning was “crystal clear”. “Our view is that the message to North Korea is quite clear,” she said after the Council session. “This statement is notable. It uses the term ‘attack’ that is not a neutral term.”

    Yea, lets go in. Whose kids are we going to use, yours? Poor kids are already fighting your wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    I would be one of the ones they would likely send, if it came to war.

    We're not poor, nor are we children.

    2.Members of the all-volunteer military are sig*nificantly more likely to come from high-income neighborhoods than from low-income neighborhoods. Only 11 percent of enlisted recruits in 2007 came from the poorest one-fifth (quintile) of neighborhoods, while 25 per*cent came from the wealthiest quintile. These trends are even more pronounced in the Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) pro*gram, in which 40 percent of enrollees come from the wealthiest neighborhoods—a number that has increased substantially over the past four years.
    3.American soldiers are more educated than their peers. A little more than 1 percent of enlisted per*sonnel lack a high school degree, compared to 21 percent of men 18–24 years old, and 95 percent of officer accessions have at least a bachelor’s degree

    The North Koreans are already pushing hard at seeing how much they can get away with. They are sending floating anti personnel mines downstream, and a couple fishermen got killed by one yesterday.

    Dear Leader is thinking he can get away with it. He is probably trying to provoke some retaliation so they can restart the war.

    don't worry, in a few months the UN will pass a resolution condeming the death of fishermen. That will show N Korea.
