North Korea To Stage Nuclear Test

And the world yawns.

SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea announced Tuesday that it will conduct a nuclear test in the face of what it claimed was an "extreme threat of a nuclear war" by the United States.

Thank goodness Kim Jong Il is starting to defend himself. I mean you can't swing a dead cat without hitting some American politician who is threatening to start a nuclear war. Um, Kim Jong, 1963 called. They want their hot-button issue back!

The declaration provoked alarm and condemnation from leaders around the world. The United States warned a North Korean nuclear test "would pose an unacceptable threat to peace and stability" and the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations raised the issue during a Security Council meeting.

Is anyone losing sleep over this? Their last "test" lasted shorter than Fmragtops in bed. (POW!) This is a country that can't keep its lights on after sundown, for God's sake!

The council agreed to hold further discussions on Wednesday after consulting capitals.

Whew! The United Nations is getting involved. Problem solved.
