#1 several more nuclear bombs in addition to the one or two it already is believed to possess.

I'll believe it when I see it.

#2 North Korea on Tuesday rejected President Bush’s offer of a written pledge not to attack in exchange for the communist nation agreeing to scrap its nuclear weapons program.

Tough shit, then. Time to mobilize the sea interdiction forces. Nothing goes in or out through NK ports.

#3 Oh c’mon! Who’s going to be rattled by a Silkworm test?

Mulberry trees.

#6 Bulldog - Boo, hiss!
Are we surprised that the the Norks rejected our offer? Kimmie sez: No, we also want Happy Meals, choo-choo trains, and ...

#7 I guess Kimmey realizes that this IS NOT the Clinton Administration. If this had been them they (NK) would be building (and exporting) nukes by now. Let them eat grass soup with ants! MMM MMM yuck!

#8 "And we demand a pony!"

As short on food as they are, I figured they would demand an elephant.

#9 Elephant?
Can we give them a couple white ones?
Oh, sorry, Korea not Siam.

The treaty the NorKs want has about zero chance of being approved by the Senate. Maybe we should start saying that explicitly.

Useful Animals Multiplied in DPRK
Pyongyang, October 21 (KCNA) -- Useful animals have been protected and multiplied in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Many stock farms in Pyongyang, North Phyongan and South Hwanghae provinces are breeding a large number of profitable animals such as pheasant and roe deer.
Stock farms in provinces, cities and counties set pheasants and roe deer free in mountains and fields during the autumn general mobilization period for land management every year.
Recently the North Hwanghae Province released some 10,000 pheasants and North Phyongan Province thousands of pheasants in mountains and fields.
The pheasants and roe deer released in North Hwanghae Province over the past 26 years total more than 215,000.
The government has taken steps to plant many trees in places good for useful animals to live in and provide conditions favorable for their inhabitation.
Great efforts are being directed to a solution to scientific and technical issues arising in breeding and multiplying pheasants and roe deer.

#11 Nothing has changed. Bush went to Asia last week. Everyone was a-titter about the NORKS. Bush offered a bone. The NORKS did not bite. Kimmie is against the ropes and making threats, but I have not heard "sea of fire" and other thermal rhetoric. The bottom line is that it is up to the Chinese and the SKors if they want to enable this sick, self-destructive society or they will just let it self crater and maybe people there will have a hope for a decent life. 50 years of this mad hatter society is enough.

#12 Why bother with an embargo? If you are shooting anti-ship missiles into your own territorial waters unannounced, only a moron will sail to your country. They have embargoed theirselves.

#13 Is it possible for a surprise meter to read negative numbers?
Must be, mine's been doing it all week. Not only about the WoT, but also the Democratic Party hopefuls (desperates) for the White House (or any meaningful job, anything will do! I'll even rake leaves!), and most of what Hollywood has spewed. I'm beginning to believe there's a black hole loose somewhere in the region, with all the sucking sounds I keep hearing.
