Thumbs up

North Korea has the power to make Japan and its allies look really, really stupid by pressing a button - and no, it's not an attack to remove people's clothes when they're not looking... So the US is nervous. Harder to smush a country that, unlike Iraq, actually has weapons of mass distraction. Our only consolation, comrades, is the fact that the US would never attack a country with a working nuclear programme. A working oilfield, but of course, is a beast of a different kidney. Which is why Saddam is dead and Mugabe is alive and scarfing down birthday cake while his countrymen eat boiled boot leather and mopani worms. If they can get mopani worms, the little buggers are a delicacy...

"You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you..."
