I found the article linked below at Yahoo…I was looking for more interesting news on Iran. Those folks have me all inspired. But this guy, this Kim Jong-il, this feller is just plain asking for it.

N. Korea threatens US; world anticipates missile

King Jong-il, future benevolent tyrant of North Korea, as a boy

While I do see the sense in Obama’s diplomatic approach***towards the Iranian protest/revolution…I sure hope he decides to verbally trounce this guy, who is clearly unhinged.

Excerpt:

Kim Jong-il's kitty-cat

“The new U.N. Security Council resolution requires member states to seek permission to inspect suspicious cargo. North Korea has said it would onsider interception a declaration of war and on Wednesday accused the U.S. of seeking to provoke another Korean War.

“If the U.S. imperialists start another war, the army and people of Korea will … wipe out the aggressors on the globe once and for all,” the official Korean Central News Agency said.”

All grown up!

All grown up!

So, even if it’s obvious there are illegal weapons on board the Kang Nam, and even if the U.S. obtains permission from the U.N.

(Hey, isn’t that a compromise of our sovereignty?), should we act on that suspicion, with the permission of the U.N. — as far as Kim Jong-il is concerned, we’ve committed an act of war, and he will “wipe of off the map” (G-d forbid).  Boy…that is a quandary.

Doesn’t sound to me like diplomacy is an option really.

***Update: the time has passed for diplomacy, as the Iranian gov’t is now guilty of wholesale murder and rape of their people.
