Breaking News...Korea has Launched Missile

CNN reports Korea just launched a short-range missile test.

When our government draws a line in the sand, our expectation is for them to stand firm. Korea just crossed that line. Now we're waiting for a response. Let's hope we don't keep backing up and re-drawing the line.

This story strikes quite close to home because my wife is of Korean heritage and we are about to send my in-laws back to Seoul after an extended visit.

As much as I would love to see Kim Jong Il sharing a cell with Saddam Hussein, I think the best thing for the US to do is to ignore him like the spoiled brat he is & let the nations of the region make noise... for now.

There may come a time when we will have to act, but my hope is that the guy dies of syphilis before such a perilous thing would ever happen.
