So it seems we've goaded North Korea into flexing its nuclear muscle. They announced they plan to test a weapon. No one has tested a nuke since 1998. No one other than India and Pakistan have tested a weapon since 1996. Now North Korea feels they have to demonstrate that invading them prior to the 2008 presidential election would be a spectacularly bad move. I can't help but run through scenarios in my head: NK nukes a build-up of US and SK troops. US nukes a NK city. NK nukes Japan. US nukes NK. China nukes US. US nukes everyone because, fuck it, why go halfway?
