The article in the times makes it abundantly clear how much our government does not know about North Korea. They have been deemed a credible threat for years now and we haven't the slightest idea what is going on there. Two fires and explosions have occurred in the last few days and we have no explanations for them. If they do decide to test a nuclear bomb, where will they do it? Are there some remote mountains they can detonate a bomb in without killing people or giving them all cancer from the radiation? The Times also shows that everyone has a completely different opinion. Some people think it is a bargaining ploy, others think they are serious this time, and the state department keeps calling for negotiations. Who is going to figure out what is going on over there?
