True. GWB would have his finger on the big red button before he could say "Where's Korea anyway?"
But i would ask why should america have these weapons, but get so angry at other nations having them.

Why would they test a nuclear bomb in their own country it doesn't make sense. By the way could you tranlate your signature for me, i haven't got my head around it.
im not serious, but if they did need to test, do you think anywhere would let them? I really dont think Kim gives a crap about his people or his land anyway.
They're both proverbs, best translated as - "you dont look you dont get" and "by candlelight there are no ugly women" hehe

Is it because America is worried about these types of weapons being under the control of basket case countries like North Korea?

Hmmm, 3000 people, sure I remember that figure from somewhere.

Interesting to see quite how much coverage The Sun et al have given to this comparatively. What page did they put it on, again?

Thats strange. I thought the world was more frightened about the worlds most powerful armed forces being under the basket case leadership of George W!

Ah yes, but it was 3000 when they went to print.

Can someone explain to me why yesterday and this morning the number reported to have died was 3000? I've now just got home from college with the typically patronising happy/sad BBC News 24 presenters telling me that "150 reported dead"?

Theres a big difference there, and no news channels seem to be explaining the great discrepancy between initial figures and the newly reported figures.

Well happily 2850 have since been found alive and well after all.

Either because N.Korea simply revised it's previous figure to minimize the bad publicity surrounding the disaster (N.Korea doesn't like to be under the world gaze) or because N.Koreans are inummerate.

i heard on the news that Kim Jong Ill has just been through that station the same day. Maybe it was a poorly timed assassination attempt :eek:

y dont they want to tell us anything??
Both trains collided on each other and unfortunately both were carrying explosive materials like oil etc.This caused a huge explosion and the town(area) around that site was converted into cremation ground!
