    I dont see the comparison to what the discussion was about, but Ill bite. Its really a simple concept..There was a fight, land was conquered, the land is being utilized by the conqueror..The longer it takes for the Palestinian people to rise against their own leadership for putting them in a box, the smaller the box will become. Soon they will want land from Lebanon or Egypt or Jordon...oh wait, they tried that....
    But of course you really knew that....Me thinks, most people issues with Israel has nothing to do with Israel proper, but the concept...

    Since their previous test was about as successful as a bottle rocket, is anyone really that worried?

    That's perhaps the most trivial thing one can say, no offence intended. The leader of North Korea is by no means a peaceful guy, and just ignoring its attempts to gain power through a potential war is defenitely not the way to go. Since the situation is on the verge of another war, someone would better intervene as soon as possible.

    It's not very far to Seoul...you don't need much of a rocket to destroy your enemy if you are in North Korea...

    1) Their delivery system failed recently
    2) The did have 2 previous fission tests, in 2006 and 2009. While not huge, the 2009 test was estimated to be about as strong as the bombs the U.S. dropped on Japan.

    Im pretty sure they are aware of what would happen if a nuke landed on Seoul. The great leader would be ruling with a third arm and a fifth eyeball.

    How would that stop a fool, and I'm not saying someone is a fool.
    They represent a treat and so far diplomacy has proved useless. I hope there's a clear reason as to why China hasn't taken any decisive action.

    North Korea is China's Israel.

    It upsets the region, and China likes that.
