    Well they aren't calling on taking out all the missile sites, but close:

    They see the weakness of America and they are pressing. They know we nor the rest of the world will really do anything. America is not even united during a time of war, NK and Iran see that and will take advantage of it.

    Remember the movie "Team America"? I now think their depiction of Kim Jong Il as a immature, spoiled, ugly, narcissistic, psychopathic mass murderer was entirely too generous.

    I wonder, does the Orkin Man make house calls to North Korea?

    He wants an incentive package like Iran is being offered.

    Actually, Iran wants what NK has already been given. Now NK wants more. Somehow I think they might find GW is a bit different than BC was, then again one never knows.

    What I mean is that lil Kim sees that Iran is getting something, so he's throwing a tantrum so he can get something too, even though he already has what Iran wants. It's all about him, he can't stand anyone else getting attention. I'm also not sure that China isn't behind it in some way. They may be encouraging him while acting like they are against it in the security council. They get to gauge our reaction, which would be helpful to them if they try to take Taiwan or make some other advance in the future.

    I have an idea... let's nuke Iran, then tell little blow hard, he can have that, and one better, if he'd like

    OK, just kidding.... but this is how spoiled little brats work... if you give one a lollipop, the other one wants two

    So.... slap one up and down, then tell the other, if he'd like the same, just keep it up....

    Call me a child abuser... wtf do I care?

    As the article illustrated, for the past 20 years or so, Kim has used provocation to get what he wanted and it worked. Through the 'rewards' he was able to keep selling weapons, counterfeiting our currency, acting as a drug conduit, and developing nuclear capabilities. This was NOT lost on Iranian up and coming leadership...

    Today they watch what the US and UN will do. Will we beg for more talks, as the DNC, China and Russia demand? Will we tell them to f off and blockade? Will we destroy their capabilities? Yeah, Iran is watching.

    You do realize what this means, don't you? If we had capitulated to Saddam's demands and decided to go along with yet another go around with the UN (and another and another....), we'd now be dealing with Iraq, Iran and North Korea....

    so, just for that one reason alone, invading Iraq was not such a bad idea, after all!
