I honestly wanted to write something deep and profound about Kim Jong-Il. Really. I did. I was going to go on about how he’s really not “crazy,” and testing missiles is his usual song and dance to get more cash out of us, Europe and his neighbors. But the whole “I’m a loco dictator and I’m gonna blow up the effin’ world if you don’t pay me, bitches!” shit gets super old super fast. I actually feel sorry for Russia, China, South Korea and Japan, who have to basically put up with this bullshit on a round-the-clock basis as they are within weapons range. We talk like a missile might be able to get to Alaska. Maybe. But they have to live it. Even if Jong-Il got one of those raggedy-ass long range rockets off the ground and got it aimed in Alaska’s general direction, the state is about 90 percent tundra and rocks and about 10 percent people. All he’s gonna do is kill some polar bears, incur the wrath of Sarah Palin and piss a lot of Americans off (including yours truly).
More after the jump.
