North Korea says fightin' words
North Korea just responded to the UN sanctions by saying that they were an "act of war," according to our local TV news. Pray that we don't go to war with them. As you know, I've been very concerned for some years now about the way things have been hotting up in East Asia (Brainhell, what was that bet we had again?). If we go to war with North Korea, I think we will be lucky if all it turns out to be is a national and international humiliation on the order of Vietnam. I think it will be a complete disaster for us, especially considering how important Japan is to our economic supply chain, and how vulnerable they are to North Korea, and how fully North Korea can be expected to wage total war against us. Pray.
