North Korea has nucular capability...

we think...maybe.... not confirmed but we're real sure....

the ground shook....they said it a underground testing....

But it makes great press....See we told you....

China Agrees...and they're Commies....

Well, it's good to know we are not going to invade North Korea anytime soon. After all, the American Empire only invades countries without nuclear weapons, not nucular. Shouldn't the leader of the free world, hah free, speak correctly. OK, maybe not a requirement, but a good idea at least.

And China...of course they agree. Aside from the socially repressiveness of China, they are our allies. That country now sees everything in hues of green light. Since China relies so heavily on US dollars to maintain their economy, of course they're gonna pooh pooh North Korea.

Truth is... if you look hard enough...nothing has been verified. It looks like nuclear weapons, N Korea says it has nuclear weapons, and if that country is known for anything...it's truthfulness.

If you look even harder. Conventional weapons can create the same results that N Korea claims are nuclear. The test not as strong as most underground nuclear tests have been. N Korea has already screwed up a rocket launching. Our press has already been misled this year about said failed rocket launch.

Failed or not, the first reports of that rocket launch were that the target was Hawaii. That would have been a blatent act of war. If true, and we all know what happens if you attack Hawaii, support for defending our country would have been extremely strong. A true attack response is a lot different than a pre-emptive war.

Look how we reacted to just the notion of WMDs. ok redundant, but you get the point

But, eventually the truth was a failed rocket launch not aimed at the US. The hoopla died down real quick. We didn't really react.

So, now, hhmmmm, isn't it just as easy to believe that N Korea is basically playing extreme Texas Hold'em with us. They've gone all in, and we're debating on getting a chance to see the river?

There is the same amount of evidence to support that claim as well. It just doesn't make for good copy.

i've been a little critical of Ford Motor recently. Looks like they are getting ready to dump some money into the Livonia plant. Although buyouts are coming, at least it looks like they are not giving up on Michigan completely. Let's hope for more good news.

Lower gas prices may increase sales of trucks and SUVs. Dear Lord, we never learn, do we?

Thanks for reading, again my not so much running stuff today, my running blog

Lower gas prices simply mean more miles in my Honda. :)

I like the NPR story that basically says "Yeah...the earth shook but we don't really know what kind of blast it was"

On the ford front...American Car companies seem to lag behind what the average American wants in a car. Sure we want space...but we want to spend less in gas per week.

I guess that nuclear tree fell in a forest that wasn't completely empty...

On the Ford tip, I hear they are sniffing around GM's sloppy seconds...
