China has to be much more proactive about this and not let things get out of control.

The Hawai'i thing has been cancelled? Short range missiles are so unimpressive.

You'd think between Iran and Michael Jackson, L'il Kim would be feeling ignored and want to celebrate another American holiday with a big splash, as it were.

Well, July 4th is almost over, by my quick guesstimation in Korea, but the day is young in Hawai'i.

Like we say in Spanish "perro que ladra no muerde" or dog that barks doesn't bite. Just like Chávez, he barks a lot but doesn't bite. We're still waiting for the invasion of Honduras! It won't happen.

I'd say an invasion of Honduras is more likely right now than anything from N.Korea.

Yeah, more than we can eat. Let alone clean up.

But I will be relentless. The United States needs the pristine north slope of Canada. Enormous wealth .......especially since we have now discovered the illusive Northwest Passage.

Such an attack could be a preparation or precursor to a military attack.

Bill Clinton is in North Korea to negociate the release of two U.S. journalists

Interesting development here that may pave the road for talks about the nuclear issue.
