North Korea Wants War

From, North Korea: Increased U.S. Pressure Would Be 'Act of War'

Is it me or is North Korea looking for a fight? I've read several AP reports where North Korean leaders are snubbing China, Japan, Russia, and the United States. North Korea wants the United States to meet on their terms and demands. It ain't gonna happen.

But unlike Iraq, which has gone wayward thanks mostly to politicians, a defensive blow to North Korea would be decisive, i.e. parts of North Korea would be leveled. Read General Bell's comments to see for yourself.

Don't get me wrong: I'm tired of war. I'm tired of seeing husbands, fathers, wives, and mothers go off to war. BUT, I strongly believe in decisive self-defense.

Truthfully, I don't think North Korea is looking for a fight. They're just repeating the behavior that's always gained them something - make big statements, push the envelope, then they'll get what they want. Exactly what happened during the Clinton years.

Thankfully, the times are a-changin'. The new chief of the UN is from South Korea, and methinks he won't put up with Kim's childlike tantrums, albeit a child with (potentially) nuclear weapons.

As a college professor once told me though, the problem with North Korea is South Korea... and that's a whole different post.
