    Well, we haven't yet found a real enough excuse to invade Iran, so we might as well try for North Korea. That way we can cover 2/3 of the Axis of Evil by the end of the year.

    Of course, living on the West Coast gives me great pause for consideration that there's once again another country besides the Soviets with an ICBM that could reach Oakland. But even Reagan wasn't so hot to figure out ways to directly invade and occupy the Soviet Union.

    Hell, the Nazi's failed to invade Russia and they had a massive army for the time.

    But, nonetheless, I don't think our economy nor our country can handle another war. War is supposed to boost the economy, and it's screwed it all for us.

    No kidding. Why not try for an 18" smoothbore rotary phalanx turret? it'd be easier to build and adapt and Phalanx has a good record... except for that whole ugly USS Cole thing... (gotta turn it on first... whoops).

    be fair -- they invaded quite well, and fell only a little short of capturing russia. blame the harsh winter and hitler overruling his generals.

    Again, I wonder why we're in Iraq while ignoring real threats. It's like we've just done everything wrong. Bin Laden is still loose somewhere in Pakistan or Afghanistan too. Both of whom have lots of weapons too.

    I know I feel safer.

    Little Kimmy just wants to fire off a "test" missile. What's the harm in that? :p
