I have been following the developments on the news, and I'm concerned. Hagel's statement from Wed. hasn't done much to make me feel much better:


Hagel hinted at risks in reacting to North Korea, calling the tensions a "complicated, combustible situation" that could "explode into a worse situation."
"It only takes being wrong once. And I don't want to be the secretary of defense who was wrong once. So we will continue to take these threats seriously. I hope the North will ratchet this very dangerous rhetoric down," Hagel said Wednesday.

While I'm concerned about those in the vicinity that have to put up with the idiotic move and those who will have to try to defend the safety of others, I don't fear for my own safety.

I don't think the US is at risk, but this situation is concerning. I am afraid that with all the "he won't do it" that he is twisted enough that he will "yeah watch this". And with the US pledged to help SK and China pledged to help NK things could get very complicated very quickly

I see him on the same level as those who fire guns up in the air on July 4 and NYE.

I am worried but since there is nothing I can do about it, I have chosen to stick my head in the sand on this one.


Tribbey: I believe, as long as Justice Dreifort is intolerant toward gays, lesbians, blacks, unions, women, poor people, and the first, fourth, fifth, and ninth amendments, I will remain intolerant toward him! [to Ainsley] Nice meeting you
