Diplomacy for Dummies--a continuing series.


The White House in action: North Korea apparently launched a short-range missile into the Sea of Japan today, a move likely to raise tensions on the eve of a United Nations conference on nuclear nonproliferation.

Andrew H. Card Jr., the White House chief of staff, confirmed that a missile appeared to have been fired into the sea between the Korean Peninsula and Japan.

With the language used by both sides sharpening, Mr. Card then denounced the North Koreans as "bullies" and called their leader, Kim Jong Il, "not a good person."

Welcome to the Nuclear Club, North Korea! You get to wave your club like the others! Geeze. You would think America would be more careful calling other nations "bullies" what with us attacking nations disarmed by the UN. The North Koreans gave good tit for tat too. Name calling is their forte! The delight in seeing any USA ambassador or spokespersons talk dirty and low down is amusing for everyone. After all, this is the Nuclear Club! No need to be subtle, right?
