    Not much in real terms, I guess. Like you said, they will get thier asses handed to them if they use it. Besides, why would they attack someone and what would it gain them to do so? At worst they give the nuke to some religous wack-job who has the balls to use it.

    Bongo!

    It makes pushing for Iraq look stupid. Maybe after we invade Iran N. Korea will get the picture and just kindly hand their nukes over.

    Don't you think the deterant factor of these weapons has been on the agenda a lot longer than that?

    We already knew they had at least one or two of them, so this is not "news", it is just Kim Jong Il's attempt to get attention.

    The only danger is his possibly selling one to a terrorist, which is a small, but very real danger. If we tighten sanctions too much, there is also the slight but real danger he will attack South Korea with them, hoping a first strike, and our already over extended military, prevents us from striking back.
