North Korea says they've got nukes and they're not afraid to use them if provoked

I think this is where the saying "peace through superior firepower" comes into play...

SEOUL, South Korea Jul 3, 2006 (AP)— North Korea would respond to a pre-emptive U.S. military attack with an "annihilating strike and a nuclear war," the state-run media said Monday, heightening anti-U.S. rhetoric amid close scrutiny of its missile program.

The Korean Central News Agency, citing an unidentified Rodong Sinmun newspaper "analyst," accused the United States of increasing military pressure on the isolated communist state and basing new spy planes on the Korean Peninsula.

The North Korean threat of retaliation, which is often voiced by its state-controlled media, comes amid U.S. official reports that Pyongyang has shown signs of preparing for a test of a long-range missile. North Korea claims it has the right to such a launch.

I don't know what Kim "Ping-Pong" Jong Il thinks he's got up his sleeve, but his 8 nukes, aren't going to get him very far with us or the rest of the nuclear superpowers. And there's a good lesson to be learned here. Don't let Iran have nukes. Then we'll have Wackypants Ahmadinejad running a nuclear superpower too, and he's probably a bigger lunatic than Ping-Pong.

So don't let Iran get to this point. One lunatic with nukes is plenty.
