this coming tuesday marks the 55th anniversary of the formation of north korea. how should we expect them to mark the occasion? by declaring themselves a nuclear state? by testing a device, perhaps?

official WH policy is still to avoid using the word 'crisis' wrt the north korea nuclear situation.

Bush is going to address the nation tomorrow night. Something could be up.

And as I said in the NK thread, the 9th is the most likely date for them to pop a test over the Sea of Japan.

Whoops, I meant the 8th :rolleyes: Though it may be the 9th in the US due to the time difference.

my bad -- though i'd seen your post in the other thread, i guess i'd missed the part about the 9th. silly of me to ask about the significance of the 9th when that's what my own darned thread was about.

i should've eaten dinner....
