Under the headline "U.S., N. Korea Drifting Toward War, Perry Warns":
Former defense secretary William Perry warned that the United States and North Korea are drifting toward war, perhaps as early as this year, in an increasingly dangerous standoff that also could result in terrorists being able to purchase a North Korean nuclear device and plant it in a U.S. city.
"I think we are losing control" of the situation, said Perry, who believes North Korea soon will have enough nuclear warheads to begin exploding them in tests and exporting them to terrorists and other U.S. adversaries. "The nuclear program now underway in North Korea poses an imminent danger of nuclear weapons being detonated in American cities," he said in an interview.
Now, invasion just ain't an option this time around. But unlike Iraq, North Korea is so desperately economically isolated, so lacking in resources, that selling off nukes to terrorists just might seem appealing to Kim Jong Il, who's easily as crazy as a dozen Saddam Hussein's on bad bathtub blotter acid. Keep your fingers crossed, I guess. (Via Free-Market.Net)
