NoKo Informs China of Three More Nuke Tests

Here we go again. From the Kyodo News:

(Kyodo) _ North Korea has informed China that it is prepared to conduct "as many as three additional tests" following the first nuclear experiment Oct. 9, CNN television reported Wednesday.


Quoting U.S. intelligence analysts and officials, CNN and Fox News said U.S. spy satellites have detected activities which could be preparations for nuclear explosion tests at three North Korean sites.

Update: Kim Jong-il stuck his head out for the first time since the nuke test:

On Wednesday, North Korean leader Kim Jong Il made his first known public appearance since his country's recent nuclear test, attending a performance of songs praising him, the North's official media reported.


The exact date of the performance wasn't specified in the report by the official Korean Central News Agency, but Kim would most likely have attended the event on Tuesday evening as the country marked the 80th anniversary of the Down with Imperialism Union, a group purportedly founded by Kim's father, the late North Korean leader Kim Il Sung.

Kim Jong-il - trying to live in the shadow of daddy.

Next, we'll have Iran running their little defiant tests, I think they've got a spot picked out to run their tests as well, say, Israel?

Americans anxious over U.S. foreign ties

WASHINGTON - Americans are anxious and frustrated over the state of U.S. foreign relations, a survey indicates, with large majorities worried that the country's foreign policy is making the world increasingly dangerous for the United States and its people.

The poll, taken in September, included an "anxiety indicator" that calculates the level of angst in the country based on answers to five general survey questions. The indicator registered 130 on a scale of zero to 200, with zero being the most secure and 200 the most anxious.

That indicates "that apprehension and unease about the country's international position are at high levels and that the public mood may be nearing a tipping point," said veteran survey researcher Daniel Yankelovich, chairman of Public Agenda, the nonpartisan public policy institute that released the study Wednesday.

The survey identifies a "tipping point" as the point at which "attitudes have reached such a high level of concern that political leaders ignore it at their peril."

"This level of public anxiety, combined with Americans' disapproval of the nation's current course, is not something leaders can just dismiss," Yankelovich said.

The Republican'ts can dismiss it - they don't give a damn about anything except trying to re-elect their sorry *sses to office -- and they're failing there too! They think they can blame their own errors and failings on Clinton and Carter. NoKo is a good example - and there's the result!

Scrapiron:

Three more test should just about use up the material Slick Willie and Madam NotAllTooBright gave them. Now they are using the new Nuclear Reactors to make more powerful conponents. By the way, Slick gave them the two nuclear reactors they are using, at a cost to the U.S. taxpayers of approx two billion dollars each. I think he included about 7-8 billions dollars in money and goods to feed the army of North Korea while they develop the nuclear bombs. Wouldn't want them to have to take a break and grow something to eat.

And it was so hunky dorey BEFORE 9/11? Now the world hates us MORE because we chose to defend ourselves and the lives of all free people? Yeah, we're definitely the bad guys in all this. Let's not blame the dicators, imams, terrorists and other repressive regimes and hold them accountable for their crimes against humanity inside and outside of their countries. Let's only blame ourselves. That's taking the high ground.

What a bunch of crap.

Oh, an since we've been engaged in multilateral talks with NKPR, who have repeatedly walked away from the table and demanded bilateral talks that we've rightly said no to, NOW the left attempts to critisize attempts at multilaterlism? You want hyprocrisy? There you go, pal.

What a bunch of big pile of donkey crap.

How old are you Lee? Are you old enough to remember the 80's? Do you remember movies like Red Dawn, War Games or perhaps a lot if some 80's music?

Anyway - If you do, you'll remember that society on a whole was worried about Nuclear Annihilation/Mutual Assured Destruction from the soviet threat.

I contend that we were WAY more afraid then, than we are now, based simply on our current movies and music.

Mitchell:

Good point, Clancy. The Left have no historical memory, thus no perspective. That's why Cindy Sheehan required a hysterectomy the other day.

Lee, yes, I can see you are truly "anxious and frustrated," but you need to take something for it, instead of relentlessly pushing your b*llshit on this blog.

Peter F.:

(Your link didn't work, Lee. I found your article anyway.)

Conspicuous by its absense was the paragraph just after what you cited:

"It's not just one event or one specific policy that is worrying people. It's Iraq; it's the danger of a terrorist attack; it's energy dependence; it's our diminished reputation around the world; it's the rise of violent Muslim extremism," he said.

In short, it's a lot of things that make people anxious. And by God, they should be anxious; we are in a state of war. But apparently some of us have forgetton that fact...

Just a few weeks before the election, of course.

Well, is anyone really suprprised by this? Doesn't this play right into the "climate of fear" the Republicans love to have around in the weeks before a national election?

Or, if you don't subscribe to this being a Rove October Surprise, maybe you believe that terrorists are doing this now because they want Republicans to be re-elected...?

"They did it to effect the election of Jose Maria Aznar."

Hmm - So, you think this bomb threat is possibly election-related too?

If that's the case ask yourself...

(1) Exactly which party would benefit from heightened concerns about terrorism?, and...

(2) why would terrorists favor that particular party?

It's a two-part question, which leaves the sinple-minded yammering trolls out of the competition, but anyone else is welcome to answer....

Lee-Do you believe... (Below threshold)
Rory:

Lee-

Do you believe in freedom of choice? In the public's right to know?

Ya it behooves the terrorists to get your party to react by blaming Bush in ANY case-he can't win for losing.

Here's what's wrong with your party-

You don't take terrorism seriously.

Case in point you'd rather believe that this is a Bush conspiracy and part of your crowd would rather believe that 9/11 is a Bush conspiracy.

When Democrats think like you do-{it's evident at the DU and Kos today} how do you protect the country when you underestimate the terrorists or don't react responsibly. Blaming it on Rove reflects the continuing head in the sand, laissez -faire attitude of the Democrats.(If! you could only have a laissez-faire attitude when it comes to the economy...}

Here's a confluence of events, there have been past threats made about the Ramadan period, there is a guy connected with staking out these cities that is at large, diagrams and plans of the NFL stadiums were found in Afghanistan, AND Al Qaeda has attacked just prior to elections to effect the outcome.

It's only prudent that you give the public the freedom of choice to make their own decisions and you don't hide the information like some all knowing /we know what's best for you Nanny State.

Also in the meantime you possibly gain from the public and stadium owners heightened awareness.

Unfortunately, your party would rather sweep it under the rug and get your panties in a bunch about a possible, based on irregular science, two hundred years from now hypothetical Global Warming.

Xennady:

Hi Lee I'll take a shot at this...So far this is nothing but a story posted on an obscure website.The Spanish attack was-well,an attack which probably swung the election away from the pro-US let's fight party to the appeasing moonbat let's-kiss-terrorist-anus-and-they-will-go-away party.If this is just a story then it is irrelevant-similar tales have been told before.If this does turn into an attack ask yourself 1)In light of the effect of the Spanish train bombing on their election which party does Al-Qaeda expect a pre-election attack to benefit 2)and why does Al-Qaeda favor that party? The answers are 1)The Democrats 2)Because they want to redeploy the troops in Iraq to Okinawa which will save Al-Qaeda there from extermination.

RicardoVerde:

First off there is plenty of blame to go around. Clinton spent 8 years doing nothing of substance, that is, unless you view Neville Chamberlain's treaty substantial. Bush has been a bit preoccupied with things farther west and probably has dropped the ball a bit too. I would prefer to focus less on the hand wringing and more on what is in the best interests of the US and secondarily the best interests of our allies.

Win-win negotiating relies on both parties buying into the concept. The alternative to "win-win" is "no deal". Clinton tried to negotiate but the NoKos didn't negotiate in good faith. I am reasonably sure that Madame Albright and Co. knew this, so let's not give too much credit. The 6-way talks were the way to go if we have any illusions that they are serious about negotiating by normal rules, but lil Kim isn't going to play without pressure being brought to bare. We don't have the political willpower to do so, and China hasn't shown any willingness to yank his chain.

I'm with Jack Kelly on this one. It's not really our problem. It is China's, South Korea's, and Japan's. We can help them however we reasonably can, but the motivation to make things better must come primarily from them. We can, of course, deliver a nice little one-line note to the great leader that any nuke of "unknown origin" set off anywhere will result in his immediate elevation to the Late, Great Leader, and ALL of his cronies with him.
