      Oh I don't know, you could make a decent argument that Kim is pretty darn rational.

        I could see Gaddafi's approach as being one a tinpot dictator would be interested in. Being enough of a good guy to where other countries will allow you to buy there stuff and go on weekend binges to their countries...but being enough of a bad boy to where you retain dictatorial powers and other countries don't want to mess with you. But pushing the peninsula to the brink of war when opposing sides have nukes...doesn't strike me as the cush lifestyle a dictator would want to pursue. The only thing you can say is that he's addicted to power.

          You're very possibly correct, but the fact that we have to ask such questions about North Korea speaks loudly in and of itself.

              Your continued obsession with immigration issues is really getting to be over the top.

                Bump.

                Pretty sure it's us. But not directly. It's because we're going to do something stupid and North Korea is going to does something stupider.

                    Not really. More provoke discussion and revive an old thread. I love a good zombie thread.

                          South Park 21.2 was about this and made the point beautifully.
