Meanwhile… back at the border

South Korean border that is…. seems that North Korea just can’t keep to itself. In efforts to remove itself from isolation, it continues to test its boundaries and the patience of the world. It’s leader, Kim Jong II just hasn’t gotten it yet. If you want to play, you have to play nicey nice Kim. Stop being a poor sport and follow the rules. If you don’t, you pass up Broadway, go directly to jail and do not collect your $200.00.

According to CNN:
“The council acted amid speculation that a nuclear test could come on Sunday, the anniversary of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il’s appointment as head of the Korean Workers’ Party in 1997. Japanese Vice Foreign Minister Shotaro Yachi, currently in Washington, told Japan’s TV Asahi, “Based on the development so far, it would be best to view that a test is possible this weekend.”

“With tensions rising, Kim met hundreds of top North Korean top military commanders and urged them to bolster the nation’s defenses, as officers cheered, “Fight at the cost of our lives!” the North’s official Korean Central News Agency reported Friday.”

Spoken just like true blue kamikazes (a person or thing that behaves in a wildly reckless or destructive manner).

“The United States imposed economic restrictions on North Korea last year to punish it for alleged counterfeiting and money laundering. Since late last year, North Korea has boycotted six-nation talks aimed at dismantling its nuclear ambitions.”

“North Korea said Tuesday it decided to act in the face of what it claimed was “the U.S. extreme threat of a nuclear war,” but gave no date for the test. Washington has repeatedly said it has no intention of invading North Korea.”

But I’m guessing this could all change very quickly depending on which way the wind is blowing.
