Are we still here?

Are we still here? Nobody's been overrun by screaming hordes of North Korean troops? No?

Good.

Captain Crazy had me worried this morning. I've been digging a slit trench in the tomato patch all afternoon.

I made an extra pizza, just in case.

Remember way back when they all made fun of that idiot Bush and his "Axis of Evil"?

Think any apologies will be issued?

Nah, I didn't either.

Could someone please write them another harshly written letter?

The Chinese own both the U.S. and North Korea. So if the North Koreans stick to saber rattling and shooting missiles into the ocean and China still sees a little value in the U.S. debt it holds, you shouldn't have to worry about that horde.

Despite all the trouble with the Iranian-armed Taliban, Pakistan is still expanding its plutonium production. Then India, with design help from Russia, and Pakistan are working on new missile systems for ships, subs and aircraft to keep up with each other and China. So finish and upgrade the trench in case the fallout drifts.

I'm sorry I said Bush was an idiot over the axis of evil speech. Score one for him.

The North Korean hordes are next week. The al-Qaeda takeover of Pakistan has gone into overtime.

If I should suddenly start blogging from anywhere that starts with "Fort" or "Camp"...

The great Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times". Check out the Kondratieff Cycle, and look at the 10% to 20%+ (by country) contraction in international trade that's happened in the last 18 months.

Dig that trench deep, and see if you can get case prices on that Spam.

Bush is still an idiot. That was Darth Cheney running the WH.

There are grownups talking here, junior. Give your mommy back the keyboard; you're going to be late for school.

I have an idea: Fish one of these out of mothballs, and drop it on their test site. See, the only people who are going to be there are their researchers, etc. It accomplishes several things:

1. You might knock off some of their research staff and set their program back a bit.

2. You mangle a bunch of their test equipment.

3. You demonstrate what happens when you make real enemies.

Ok, it'll never happen, not in the next three years anyway, but a man has to hope, no?
