Misplaced Priorities in North Korea

As everyone probably knows, the North Koreans have upped the political ante considerably on the peninsula by detonating a nuke. Whether they've got a launch vehicle capable of doing anything with it is another question.

The real question is what, if anything, will be done about it and who will be doing it. Diplomacy seems to have been a waste of time and jet fuel. Japan and South Korea are in range, and it is a matter of great concern to them, coupled with the bellicose ranting of North Korea and its tin pot Fuhrer.

My money's on China. They've been supporting Kim Jong Il. It's their mess, their doorstep, their client state. Time to take care of business.
