    Meanwhile back in North Korea...

    A few important things are happening:

    1) The US intercepted a shipment of Nuclear material bound for North Korea

    "The United States and its allies successfully prevented two deliveries of material bound for North Korea to make nuclear and chemical weapons, the U.S. State Department said yesterday."

    2) The US announced that it is pulling out a forensic team searching for remains of Korean War MIA.

    "WASHINGTON -- The suspension of Pentagon efforts to find and recover the remains of thousands of American war dead from North Korea was a precautionary move to reassess whether conditions were safe for U.S. teams, President Bush said Tuesday."
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...053101099.html

    3)The US for the first time moves f-117 stealth fighter bombers to South Korea.

    SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea on Thursday demanded that the United States withdraw F-117A Nighthawk stealth fighters recently deployed to South Korea, saying Washington planned to use them in a nuclear attack on the North.

    4) The rhetoric ratchets up:

    Responding to criticism from Dick Cheney - who had labelled North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-il, "one of the world's more irresponsible leaders" - a North Korean official hit back with some bald invective, saying the row would do little to revive the six-party talks on North Korea's nuclear weapons programmes. "Cheney is hated as the most cruel monster and bloodthirsty beast, as he has drenched various parts of the world in blood," said the foreign ministry spokesman.

    The paranoid North Koreans have to view the withdrawl of the forensic teams as an evacuation prior to a strike. And odd that the interception of nuclear materials has not caused bellicose statements form North Korea, or much coverage from the US in the news. Everyone of these things sounds like a prelude to a strike on Norht Koreas Nuclear program. The only question left is will Bush pull the trigger, and if he does, what will North Korea do?

    Here's the North korean response:

    "SEOUL, South Korea -- North Korea gave rare praise to President Bush on Friday, welcoming his use of the honorific "Mr." when referring to leader Kim Jong Il and saying the softened tone could lead to its return to nuclear arms talks."

    Why send in the F117s when all we've got to do to calm down the little tyrant is refer to him as "Mr. Little Tyrant"

      I dont know how good the fpa.org website is but if you search for back issues and go to 2000/2001 there was an interesting article on how to negotiate with NK.They listed both rep and dem arguments. Myvoices comment on "Mr" reminded me of that and the dems actually used that trick to soften them up,while the reps dont/didnt.

      Edit: oops the publication is Great Decisions
      Can you Hear me Now!! Good

        And, while the stock markets are closed this weekend, there will be no moon, and clear weather over North Korea.

        Not a prediction mind you, just an observation.

          ^^ Cmon Mr. OhioGuy !!! Don't get aKKK47 all excited about the possibility of stirring things up on the Korean Peninsula this weekend. He'll probably be throwing his model Taepodong-2 or No Dong missiles all over his room until his Mom tells him to leave the Dong alone.

          Of course, if the March 2003 story of a N. Korean long range missile being found in Alaska gets recirculated in newspapers this weekend, who knows....... I hear a faint drum beat. Can you hear it now?

          ------

          "The warhead of a long-range missile test-fired by North Korea was found in the U.S. state of Alaska, a report to the National Assembly revealed yesterday.

          ``According to a U.S. document, the last piece of a missile warhead fired by North Korea was found in Alaska,’’ former Japanese foreign minister Taro Nakayama was quoted as saying in the report. ``Washington, as well as Tokyo, has so far underrated Pyongyang’s missile capabilities.’’
