    60 Minutes Story about N. Korea

    Anyone watch it? It was very interesting and frightening at the same time. And I don't scare easily.

    Here's a link to the Overtime portion:

    http://www.cbsnews.com/videos/60-min...korean-border/
    “Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured…but not everyone must prove they are a citizen. And now, any of those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens.”

    I did not see it but in general I find North Korea to be only mildly threatening. They are not really capable of building successful missiles and their massive military would starve to death in any conflict. Iran would rate higher on my threat scale.

    I know all about North Korea and have followed their moves since I was stationed on the DMZ. Do Not underestimate them, they are the definition of fanatics.

    They hit Soul or Japan and the S*it would hit the fan, so they do not actually have to hit us to bring it on.

    Thanks for your service. I was one of those who regarded Kim jung Un as a minor threat until the last few days. Not any more.

    The entire family is Nuts and could never be trusted, anyone that will kill off their own family because they might pose an imaginary threat is not working with a full deck. I would suggest we put nothing past the little troll running NK, to include using nukes, he would rather burn the planet to a cinder than lose power in his little kingdom. Sadly many of the people of NK are so brainwashed that they are willing to carry out his commands, not matter how strange or insane.

    I have always hoped that China would get sick if the turd and off is behind and put in someone that is at least sane, but the Chinese have their own plans and obviously still find him useful, otherwise he would be toast.

    For the record, and you can look it up here (unless it's on the old forum, archived maybe), back during the Gulf war I was on record stating that GW is pissing the issue away. That Iraq and Saddam were no immediate threat, the immediate threats were Iran and North Korea.

    Trust me, being right all the time isn't always an easy spot to be in.
    my junk is ugly

    I did two tours on the DMZ in 1989. Great fun.
