Why Insane People
Should Not Have Nuclear Weapons

Two days ago, North Korea agreed to relinquish it's nuclear program. Now, they claim the U.S. is plotting a nuclear attack on their country, so now they are sitting at the negotiating table and threatening America:

In a second day of bluster after its disarmament accord, North Korea accused the United States on Wednesday of planning a nuclear attack and warned it could retaliate.

North Korea "is fully ready to decisively control a pre-emptive nuclear attack with a strong retaliatory blow," the communist nation's Rodong Sinmun newspaper said in an English-language commentary carried by the state Korean Central News Agency.

At six-nation talks in Beijing on Monday, North Korea promised to give up its nuclear weapons program in return for economic aid and security assurances.

Since then, however, the North's rhetoric has underscored its unpredictability and cast doubt on its commitment to the accord hammered out with China, Japan, Russia, South Korea and the United States after four rounds of contentious negotiations stretching over two years.

Despite the tough statements, none of the North's negotiating partners said they expected a breakdown in the disarmament talks, which are scheduled to resume in November when the parties meet in the Chinese capital to begin the hard work of implementing the agreement.

North Korea makes the Mullahs of Iran look sane, by comparison. But their odd rantings about the Jews and the Great Satan tells us all we need to know about their mental health. We can not allow such people to have nuclear weapons.
