How I Spent My Weekend

This is how I spent my weekend - enjoying the beautiful weather and bringing in the apple harvest off the trees on our property.

Here is how Kim Jong-il spent the weekend.

Bad dictator! Bad, bad dictator!!!

I know I said that I would only write posts that fit the ten year time test - but he didn't have to do this just for me.

Let's see - nuclear weapons and ICBMs equals Clear and Present Danger. Stay tuned. Posted by Picasa

It will be interesting to see what this administration's, and the world's reaction to this event will be.

The administration's policy thus far of ratcheting up the rhetoric and insisting on six-way talks, rather than the one-on-one demanded by the N. Koreans certainly hasn't done the trick.

Not that I believe that N.K. should be able to make demands on the United States. But the problem with playing poker with nuclear weapons is that you don't need a winning hand to get people to fold, you just need the threat of one ace in the hole.

In the end, it will likely be China that comes to the world's rescue, and puts the North Koreans in their place. I'm sure they have no desire for a nuclear-armed irrational neighbor to their south.

Who would have ever thought we would be relying on China to get our diplomatic work done for us.
