N. Korea threatens `Third World War'
Is it just me or does anyone else have a hard time getting all that worried about North Korea. Yes, nukes in the hands of Stalinist heirs are a bad thing. Yes, the big Dong - which is apparently what the North Koreans in an excess of mirth call their alledged ICBM - is disconcerting. But this is a country which cannot feed its people, has virtually no industry, next to no electric lights and leadership from the Gong Show.
No doubt, if I lived in Soeul I would be worried. But I don't. The North Koreans probably could hit Toyko but would they? Or rather, why would they?
This is the part of the story which does not make much sense.
