WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President George W. Bush said on Monday that North Korea should tell the world what it has atop a missile the United States believes it is preparing to launch.
As pathologically nutty as he is, even Kim Jong Il isn't stupid enough to attack the United States with an armed missile of any kind, much less a nuclear-tipped missile. Within about 30 minutes, North Korea would resemble the surface of Mars--except with deeper craters.
Actually there's a note attached to the tip of the missile which reads "CATS AND DOGS ALL GONE--SEND FOOD--NOW!!!"
Seriously, I don't think there's anything to worry about with this missile they have. There's absolutely nothing to be gained by attacking the U.S.--you can ask Osama if you can find the dark, damp, creepy cave he's been hiding in for years. There is, however, lots to be gained by threatening to attack the U.S. We should just go ahead and give this cretin what he wants (attention and food) so he'll go away for another year or two. We'll end up doing that in the long run anyway, and we don't exactly have the time for his gamesmanship right now.
