I understand where your comming from Alex
Now i'm not saying I would like a war
I do NOT want one
there would be tens of thousands of deaths
But I'm not afraid of North Korea in the least
its the global communitys version of a pissed off todler
If we give into what there doing
If we let him think even for a second we actually are scared and we make him happy by giving him what he wants
how long till he does it again?
