[font=verdana, arial, helvetica]so last thursday a mushroom cloud with a
diameter of 2.5 miles was spotted in North Korea. the US news wires didn't pick this up until saturday.

http://straitstimes.asia1.com.sg/as...,272336,00.html

no one is really sure whats going on... then fox news and CNN report it was a "forest fire"
http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/asiap...last/index.html

now apparently the "forest fire" excuse is going away and now its a "mystery":
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tm...id=516&ncid=716

while interestingly, S. Korean paper claims US covering up:
http://joongangdaily.joins.com/2004...0090309031.html

at this point i doubt it was a neclear blast (seismic data from around the world would detect this) but something fishy is going on.

also, i was watching CNN's webpage last night.. this story went from the front page to hidden in the "world" section within a span of 15 minutes.. replaced by topics such as "nelly releases new double album" and talks about how wal-mart wants to build a store in mexican ruins.

thats scary... what ever it was.. hopefully China will get their lil brother in line...
the news organizations have been running with alot of stories lately with out substantial proof... they seem to compete to see who puts it out first.. not who gets the best most accurate story... all it does is spread rumors... I hope it wasn't a nuke.. but if it was it would still prolly be on the front page... unless Scott Peterson changed his hair color or some shit...

I think we should attack North Korea with full military force and without delay. If necessary we should release our nuclear arsenal on them. They are obviously terrorists and/or related to terrorists. I also believe they have WMD's.

Shit...........wait......they have no oil.

Never mind.....scratch that.

they don't have oil...but I believe they sit on some of the largest natural gas reserves in the world.. but we gave them money and technology for nuclear power plants... because they promised that if we did that they wouldn't persue Nuke weapons..

3 words............FUCK NORTH KOREA..........all they can do with a nuke is ship it to a US port or give it to terrorists. both those i doubt, and i also dont think they could make a ICBM able to reach us, i mean China just recently develped one that can reach middle american and the test rockets keep going boom 2 seconds after lift off. North Korea isn't that big of a threat yet...

I agree. I don't believe it was a nuke. If it was; we have enough "eye's in the sky" and seismic detection to be able to tell. Then there would be detectable levels of residual radiation.

let N.Korea bomb us, at least the US has a valid reason to wipe another nation off the face of the earth
