So the UN passed harsher sanctions against North Korea, and even China signed on. Among the prohibitions against stuff that could be used to enrich uranium, there will also be a block against shipping luxury items like yachts and jewelry to North Korea. The latter was kind of a “fuck you” to the wealthy class that lives it up while the rest of the populace is impoverished.
Anyway, Kim Jong Un is unhappy and North Korea is threatening nuclear strikes against South Korea and the United States. As far as them launching anything at the United States that will so much as disturb a dandelion, I’ll file that away under “Won’t Happen”. However, South Koreans may want to get a good ways south of the border just in case North Korea decides to clumsily lob a nuclear missile wannabe at the country.
Anywho, I’m on a three flight journey to Madison, WI today for the Madison Freethought Festival and the delays are already piling up. Content will be pretty light today, but you guys can use the comments here to talk about whatever, or about how to deal with a bellicose, unhinged North Korea with dreams of harnessing nuclear weapons.
