Keeping Up With The North Koreans

I don't remember hearing about this when it happened, or maybe it was one of those news items that went in one ear and out the other. The article describes a gunfight on Dec. 22, 2001 between the Japanese Coast Guard and a suspected North Korean "spy ship". It makes for some pretty sobering reading in light of the UN Mandate regarding vessels suspected of carrying nuclear contraband.

There is also some naval maneuvers described here regarding the North Korean threat to launch a "test" missile towards Hawaii.

With all the attention on the Iranian's fight over who will represent the Mullahs, it seems to me this is the more important story. The attention on Iran could be short-lived. Happy Father's Day from the Axis of Evil.
