Their mode of speech is very similar to that presented by the Japanese during and prior to WWII. Probably good to remember how that war started in the Pacific. In that case Yamamoto told them to start the war only if they were certain it would be won in a matter of weeks. For if it took longer, they would surely lose.

As to finishing the Korean war of the fifties once and for all, MacArthur forcefully maintained that position. Unfortunately it would have required waging something close to genocide against China. In the present situation we now have the benefit of being China's most important trading partner. I have previously wondered if this whole affair might increase all nations' interest in treaties to reduce nuclear armaments. The Korean situation only adds to other recent data indicating we cannot assume people and nations always act rationally.

I submit that they are acting rationally, by their metric.

In the video of the soldiers at shooting practice, one soldier is wearing a real or replica Rolex (dunno). Can I get one if I defect to the NK? My watch is knackered.

This is "interesting.."


edit: The Daily Beast is a fairly reputable source which certainly does not lean towards the right.

edit #2: What are the chances, in that video, that anyone is even hitting the targets at that range with an iron sight AK47? Not exactly an accurate rifle at range. I get it. Put the targets far enough away and save a lot of money on printing.

Flash!!!!!!!! News Special Report. Flash!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

North Korea launches Rocket towards Japan.

Japan and the US hearing from a well-respected unnamed resource that has prior experience with such matters that it is armed with a nuclear device: Fires and destroys rocket.

Rocket as well as the capsule crash into Sea of Japan [East Sea] 291 Kilometers [181 miles] off the west coast of Japan. The capsule was found floating on the surface of the ocean 160 Kilometers [100 miles] near the city of Itoigawa.

US recovers capsule and finds no sign of a nuclear device and find that the Koreans were trying to launch a monkey into space for future space exploration research.

North Korea is inflamed on firing on their unarmed missile and that the monkey that was found dead from the countermeasures placed by the US and Japan was Kimís favorite monkey that he had as a child years before he went overseas to study is now in mourning.

North Korea and Kim now says that the US, Japan and the rest of the world must pay restitution for its unauthorized action of aggression against a non-hostel nation and wants AID to their nation for the miscalculation of the actions of the nations involved in the firing and destruction of the rockets and Kimís favorite monkey.

They are asking for an unknown amount of money that could go way into billions or close to over a trillion dollars.

North Korea says the monies will used for humanitarian aid for feeding its starving people, rebuilding schools so that every student will have access to the highest degrees of education, infrastructures improvements and other critical programs that kept their country from prospering due to the sanctions imposed by these countries over the years: especially the US and other UN/NATO countries.

They also said none of the funds would go the military, its cronies and especially ending up in the hands of the well-respected Son of a Kim but all checks, funds, food, building materials, gold bullion, platinum and other rare and expensive minerals with additional undisclosed aid, must be directly delivered to Kim with his name on all goods and especially funds so it can go to the correct jurisdiction for distribution.

Fox news reports that the unknown source of this deadly misfortune/calculation is not Dick Cheney as word gets out Cheney was vacationing in the area at the time of the incident. When asked about why there were dozens of large cargo ships under Panamanian registration with different names and found out that the parent company is Haliburton and its subsidiaries, Cheney said it was just a coincidence and none of cargo was intended for rebuilding of North Korea but could be at a minutes notice.

When asked why one ship had over a million of basketballs made in Texas with unregistered Mexican workers as well as thousands of hoops and why the pricing on these goods were over inflated by 300% he let his press secretary take over the questioning.

Former President Bush which has a 30% stock interest with Cheney venture who as recently seen with his daughter would not respond nor had no clue what is going on and went back in hiding still looking for things that he accomplished during his two terms that could be used for the Library that the Republicans plan to build in his name.

*By the way the screaming is normal, it is the tones that they use and some are high, quite high. For them, a high pitch may convey strength, sincerity or warmth-- values that people cherish. In comparison, a soft voice may imply weaknesses or indecisiveness.

I saw a photo on a blog somewhere that showed a North Korean woman preparing a meal with pressure cooker.

Was she ensconced in the nose cone of an ICBM, or just a BM?

Looks like they keep driving the same missile truck around in circles.

Only thing I understood in Korean was "Samsung"

Maybe it's a good thing I didn't buy one of their refrigerators last Sat.

I suspect they should have invested in low tech. Very scary stuff. HMMMM perhaps they did. They are overdue for their big show.

lol cimb2ski, I liked the same pressure cooker picture, put the nk flag on it but posted it to the boston marathon thread instead. The govt is acting with unusual restraint in not blaming anyone yet.
