By now, the colonel must really hate himself for agreeing to stop develop nuclear weapons in the first place.

And Kim Jong-il? Must be laughing his arse off, seeing what Saddam and Gadhafi have suffered.

The next developments? Maybe a new wave of democracies. But more likely, a new round of nuclear arms race.

At least they are deterrence to Western forces, who would otherwise consider seriously whether to aid the rebels or not.

Its both a literal and metaphorical statement from Mao.


America is not a warlord Country but their military and nuke arsenal makes it the most powerful nation on earth.

And they waged an illegal war on Iraq to name one.

Your rebels would have won nothing without guns.
