By now we have all heard the sad story in North Korea. A rail car ammonium nitrate or thermonuclear weapons crashed into an electrical pole or other detonating device on Thursday, and either 3,000 or 150 people were killed. Reports are still sketchy because, let's face it, North Korea is sketchy. While their death toll rises and falls, North Korea's allies, and enemies, have heeded their calls for succor.

South Korea has pledged to send a whopping $1 million in aid. Not to be outdone, China has decided to up the ante to $1.2 from their overflowing coffers. So far, nobody else has stepped up to the bat in offering North Korea anything at all. I wonder why that is?
