Quote from internet report today: "The region is brimming with tension following the nuclear test with North Korea accusing South Korea and Japan of "gearing up for war". Speaking on South Korea's Yonhap news agency, an unnamed North Korean official said that if the UN imposes sanctions on his country they it would be seen as a declaration of war. "Sanctions are nonsense. If full-scale sanctions take place, we will regard it as a declaration of war. The more they press us, the stronger our response will be", he was quoted as telling."
Imagine the response from the Whitehouse:-
George W. Bush: "Probably not a bad idea to get this over with quick........if you know what I mean."
