If you haven’t already heard…
Earlier today seismic activity in North Korea was detected. North Korea has tested (yet another) Nuclear Weapon in it’s game of brinkmanship vs. the world. Let’s just say everyone is pretty fucking hacked off about it since the biggest problem with a North Korean nuke is the belligerence of it’s owner. International Brinkmanship is the survival strategy of North Korea and this is just another tool in their arsenal.
Their entire role in the world is to threaten death and desolation on a grand scale if we don’t pay attention to them. And they have effectively solidified their rule. Now the only change that will occur to North Korea will come through mass uprisings rather than the barrel of an American tank.
Is that for the better or worse we will never no, just that the world has unfortunately become less safe.
I am interested in perspectives. I know I had a couple of Korean readers before (I noticed the hits on the blogspot blog…) so I am asking a genuine question.
I am fond of perspective. You see, we often try and put ourselves in other people’s shoes and sometimes we are incredibly wrong. I learnt a lot about Afghanistan and the Jihadi mentality by talking to afghani refugees.
So I want to ask a genuine question. What do you think about your neighbours and their latest toy? What do you think should be done or should have been done?
