I ALMOST FEEL SORRY FOR KIM JONG IL. Remember waaaaay back when Bush called Iraq, Iran, and North Korea the "axis of evil"? Said they were all trying to develop WMDs to take over the world or whatever.
Iran and Iraq immediately responded, "What on earth are you talking about? We don't have any plans to make WMDs!" Meanwhile, North Korea says, "Damn straight. We're developing NUKES! In your face, evil westerner!"
So the US does the logical thing and invades ... Iraq.
This past July, North Korea sent off something like half a dozen long- and short-range missiles for testing purposes. The missiles were rumored to be designed to carry nuclear payloads.
So the US immediately starts planning an invasion of ... Iran.
I figure this morning's nuke detonation was the equivalent of Kim Jong Il jumping up and down, waving his arms and screaming in his shrill little voice, "I'm EVIL, damnit!! PAY ATTENTION TO ME!!! Why won't they take me seriously? Stupid Americans."
More importantly, I wonder who we're planning to invade as a result. Saskatchewan, maybe?
