While Iran's madman, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, only verbally ridiculed America in front of the U.N. and a global audience (enthusiastically cheered on by most of the Muslim world), painting the U.S. as a toothless tiger, the dogmatic North Koreans went a whole lot further by blatantly exploding a powerful nuclear device earlier this week.
By manifestly disregarding the Americans and publicly presenting them to the disbelieving world as a meaningless paper tiger, Pyongyang's rulers have taken chutzpah to unprecedented levels.
Amanijehad's fiery rhetoric, augmented by Bashar Assad's refusal to take the U.S. seriously and Hugo Chavez's ongoing anti-U.S. tirades pale in comparison to the 20-kiloton "statement" made over the weekend by North Korea's Communist tyrant leader, Kim Jong-il. To underscore their bravado, the North Korean bigots also fired six short-range missiles – just to make a point.
Although no one officially acknowledged it, on May 25, 2009, in North Korea, World War III officially got under way – the war that would ultimately pit "rabid" states such as North Korea and Iran, for example, against states generally characterized as "moderate," including Egypt, the Gulf states and Saudi Arabia.
