Get ready for another war, America. The Pentagon has revealed plans for a pre-emptive strike against North Korea in as little as 30 days. The question everyone must ask is "Is this necessary?" Well, yes it is, if you listen to the reasons put foward by the Pentagon. With a plethora of nuclear weapons in their arsenal and a long list of rogue states just waiting to buy them, North Korea has become Public Enemy #1 in the eyes of the US. Also, it is no secret that Kim Jung Il hates our guts and trash talks worse than a guest on "Jerry Springer". These reasons seem enough to warrant yet another war during Dubya's reign. If, if these weapons really exist.

Weapons of Mass Destruction are a touchy point for the Bush Administration. The fact they have used this reason again for a war is telling. I would assume they were a little more diligent about researching their facts and making sure there were no more snafu's like Iraq. But then again, they didn't do any fact-checking the first time. Another issue we need to address is the artillery on North Korea's border that is within easy striking distance of Seoul, South Korea. Given the way that North Korea has been acting, it seems likely that they will let the shells fly at their sworn enemy before they are crushed by the Yankee dogs(us). This would be bad. I don't think N.K. will roll over and play dead like Iraq, so we need to take this into account. Anyway, let's go get those guys!
