North Korea:
Big Bully Picks on Little Bully

Apr 28, 2003

At the end of April in meetings between North Korean officials and the Bush administration, the North Koreans said they possessed nuclear weapons. President Bush responded, "This will give us an opportunity to say to the North Koreans and the world, we’re not going to be threatened."

Threatened? Who is threatening whom? Is North Korea using its supposed nuclear bomb to target innocent citizens in the United States? Or is the U.S. using its untold might to threaten the whole world?

The country that just used "shock and awe" and weapons of untold levels of destruction all over Iraq, not to mention Afghanistan, is pretending to be threatened by another tinpot dictator?
