There’s a heckuva Drudge headline to wake up to.

WHITE HOUSE: WE CAN STOP NKOREA NUKE STRIKE

And I can stop Spider-Man from stealing me Lucky Charms. Because there is no Spider-Man. And I don’t have any Lucky Charms.

As discussed yesterday, North Korea doesn’t have the ability to launch a nuke at the United States. Not yet, anyway — and probably not for a long time, if ever. And should the DPRK attempt to hurt us that way, the country would cease to exist. Not even Beijing would interfere to save an “ally” who did that.

That’s not to say North Korea can’t hurt us, or get up to all kinds of mischief, and just generally be an unpleasant distraction. They can.

But Kim’s threats and bluster are for domestic consumption. As is our President’s boast that he can stop it.

Personally, I've raised the alert status to "concerned". I've got friends in Seoul...

20 years ago, when the Norks first got nuke happy, I had a good friend with 2ID on the DMZ. Sucked.

Reminds me of Dan Rather back in '91 on the build up to the Gulf War. He had a special where he was seriously explaining to the audience why Saddam couldn't invade the US or even attack America. Of course all our troops in theatre were going to get killed in a Vietnam quagmire againts Iraq's seasoned troops cause all our expensive, high-tech weapons wouldn't work. But that was after the break.
