Kim Jong Il is a loon. I expected this:
North Korea said Friday the standoff over its atomic ambitions was on the brink of nuclear war as US Vice President Dick Cheney headed to the region for talks with key Asian allies.
The Stalinist state’s official news agency accused Washington of “driving the military situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war” with plans for a pre-emptive strike on North Korea.
North Korea is like the spoiled little brat who starts throwing a tantrum every time the adults in the room quit paying attention.
