I agree with cyberanto. I hope it's a bluff but am afraid its not.

Unfortunately, it's just a matter of time before North Korea uses this bomb.

I voted for "it's a bluff" but not because I believe it is, but because I'm hoping that it is a bluff.

As I understand it, Kim Jong "Mentally" Il has likely had a stroke. It seems probable to me that there is a real jockeying for power going on behind the scenes which have some scary implications.

If the North Korean regime were to fall, the fat cat bureaucrats living large on the backs of millions of oppressed people living in abject poverty may face some severe repercussions. I think they are all too aware of the international tribunals and crimes against humanity prosecutions which could be right around the corner.

I really can't answer this question with any kind of confidence so I am reluctant to join a side. Yes, yes I know the North Koreans are the masters of the bluff and bluster. However,the bottom line is that desperate people could easily resort to desperate tactics and when that happens god help us all (think long range missiles with nuclear warheads), but especially those on the Korean peninsula which of course includes around 30K US troops.

Very good point but they didn't have to take the initial steps of defying the world through multiple acts of defiance. But again, I see your point.

I don't know anything from anything. Kim Jong-il has been characterized as nuts,probably eccentric,self-centered,power hungry. He may bluff at first,but I think he is fully capable of pushing the button.

I think he's a time bomb waiting to go off. I fully expect him to go off the deep end one of these days. Everyone was shocked when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor so I learned something from that. Anything can happen.
