World War III has begun

North Korea was listed as one of the axis of evil many years ago by our Preisdent. Yet, nothing was done about their weapons or the suffering of their people. While we are busy looking for WMDs in Iraq, to no avail regardless of what Senator Santoriom would have you believe, Kim Jong Il was just trying to get attention.

Now with the recent test missles the President seeks diplomacy. Our military is spread to thin in Iraq and Afganistan. So, the Preisdent's only option is diplomacy. It's scary to think what might happen in Kim Jong Il decides to fire a real missle. The US would be ill-prepared to do anything about it.

Why did we go after Saddam, when North Korea had the weapons and made no secret about them? I understand China's huge influence onthe matter. I hope that diplomacy works, because I'm not going to lie a draft scares the hell out of me right now.

"Last week's headlines prove the point: North Korea fires missiles, Iran talks of nukes again, Iraq carnage continues, Israel invades Gaza, England observes one-year anniversary of subway bombing. And, oh, yes, the feds stop a plot to blow up tunnels under the Hudson River.

World War III has begun."
