The People’s Democratic Republic of Death Camps has expelled UN monitors and announced plans to resume its nuclear weapons program.
On a scariness scale of one to ten, this little tidbit of news ranks somewhere around a… zillion. Even though it’s not exactly news that North Korea has nuclear capabilities, the fact that it’s being openly defiant about it and making threats isn’t exactly what we refer to as “good news”.
Possibly the least reassuring quote in the subject comes from South Korean PM Han Seung-soo:
“Although we are at an impasse, I’m sure that China, together with the other partners, will be able to solve this problem eventually.”
Thanks. That’ll help everyone sleep more soundly, I’m sure.
