Apocalypse Now?: North Korea, a nuclear power, threatens full-scale war with South Korea

And this chilling sentence appeared in the New York Times story on the crisis:

The motivations, health and even state of mind of North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-il, remained cloaked in mystery.

Got it? We don’t know whether, exactly, Kim Jong-il, the Dear Cult Leader of North Korea, is even particularly sane or amenable to reason (or our carrots and sticks).

And he’s got a bomb.

Below is what a psychopathic and mentally deteriorating cult leader looks and sounds like. Imagine Jim Jones with a bomb. That’s where the world may be at with Kim Jong-Il. And did you know that Steven Pinker, in his book The Blank Slate, cites evidence that 3-4% of the males of our species may be clinically psychopathic? Be alarmed about what’s going on between North Korea and South Korea right now. Be very, very alarmed.
