I blame Dennis Rodman.

As tensions continued to mount on the Korean peninsula, the communist dictatorship in the North deployed mid-range missile launchers to its east coast and reportedly warned foreign embassies Friday it cannot guarantee the safety of diplomats after April 10.

Reuters reported early Friday that North Korea deployed two of its intermediate range missiles on mobile launchers and hid them on the east coast of the country, citing a South Korean news agency.

South Korea said Thursday North Korea moved a missile with “considerable range” to its east coast after an unnamed spokesman for the North Korean army warned the U.S. Wednesday that its military has been cleared to wage an attack using “smaller, lighter and diversified nuclear” weapons.

Lil Kim has also issued a warning to several foreign embassies in Pyongyang, confirmed by the UK.

The other night I wrote about some of the wild cards in the North Korea situation. Russia is doing its best to be unpredictable.

North Korea, according to published reports, has unilaterally withdrawn from the 1953 Cease Fire and has stated that a state of active war now exists between it, South Korea, and the United States.

I would not wait for the Norks to fire the first shot, given all of that and given the multitude of violent incidents committed by the Norks in violation of the cease fire over the decades before they abandoned it.

Things must be getting desperate for the regime at home. This kind of crazy usually means that the pint sized Leader is trying to divert the attention of his few followers from domestic economic issues that is finally getting to the cadre of North Korean elites.

I'm thinking this third member of the Kim dynasty is in line to be killed by his own military or political apparatchiks if he can't deliver on what is clearly an attempt to extort money, oil and freedom of action from the international community.

The elephant in the room is China, of course. The Cowardly Lion is Obama.

Does anyone remember the episode of M*A*S*H with the sloppy NoKo bomber pilot who, despite attacking the 4077's camp every day at 5 PM on the dot, could never hit the target correctly? "Radar" would announce "Charlie's" anticipated arrival every afternoon and, like clockwork, everyone gathered around outside the camp to watch the day's entertainment. King John the First is starting to remind me of Cockpit Charlie.

Or they are planning on an internal crackdown after that and don't want any diplomatic personal around that could get word leaked out.
