The North's official Korean Central News Agency said the underground test was performed successfully "with indigenous wisdom and technology 100 percent,"

their indigenous wisdom may lack a bit.

They seem to be confusing wisdom with technological smarts.  When your population is starving to death, it hardly seems wise to sink money into a program that will lead to a suspension of food aid from surrounding countries, as well as even more isolation.

But the rulers aren't starving, so what the heck?

So...all those Democrats who said that Bush should have attacked North Korea--even though they weren't directly responsible for the 9-11 attacks either, which kind of takes away their argument for not taking out pyscho Saddam, are those Democrats now going to back Bush if we take military action against North Korea?

From the Fox News website:

India and Pakistan, South Asian rivals whose nuclear arms race has concerned the world, too, said North Korea's reported test could destabilize northeast Asia.

Pakistan said the reported nuclear test could spark a proliferation "chain reaction."

"This will be a destabilizing development for the region," Pakistan Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Tasnim Aslam said.



Certainly nuclear proliferation, especially among what I would consider bellicose rogue states is undesirable. I think it makes the world a more dangerous place, and increases the chance that non-state based terrorists will get their hands on a nuke.

But on a different level, it seems peculiar to me that everyone who settles in as a member of the nuclear nine condemns the newest members and wannabees, while seeing their own possession of nuclear weapons as a fundamental unchallengeable right. Witness our own country's (USA) general opinion. Even more eye-opening is Pakistan's response noted above. It wasn't that long ago that I remember the the other members of the "club" saying similar things about Pakistan.

Kim Triggers Nuke, Pelosi Calls on Hastert to Quit
by Scott Ott

(2006-10-09) — In the wake of the weekend detonation of North Korea’s first atomic bomb, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, called for the resignation of House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-IL.

Mrs. Pelosi said the timing was “beyond coincidence, and has all the earmarks of another cynical Republican ploy to distract people with trivial national security issues so that they don’t hear our progressive Democrat plan to improve America by getting Hastert to quit.
