Step 1: Test a nuclear weapon
This is the first step to a new generation of warfare. North Korea has tested a nuke and now the U.S. will have to raise their alert level. It's a bad situation all around. But maybe now the U.N. Security Council will get off their apathetic asses and do something. But you know there will be those that blame Bush for this.
"He didn't do enough to stop this."
"He should have agreed to one on one talks with North Korea."
So, I ask why? Why is it always America's job to handle situations like this? Isn't that what the United Nations is for? Why is it always the U.S. that gets the blame when something along the lines of this happens? It's happening with Darfur and, I may be jumping the gun only to find out that I'm totally wrong, but it'll probably happen now. With the election less than a month away it only seem natural that politicians will jump on this to help their campaign. Whether you want to pass blame around or not, this is a bad situation we're in.
