The Mouse That Roared

North Korea finally shot their wad. Their rocket. According to observers it did not come close to being a threat. This is the second or third one that they have fired to get the attention of the US and the rest of the world.

North Korea is starving to death and needs help from the west. As long as they have their current attitude that is not going to happen.

I am reminded of the Peter Sellers' movie many years ago where he headed up a small country in Europe that needed aid from the US. He saw that countries that had attacked the US got a lot of aid after the war. He declared war on the US but no one paid any attention. He and his buddies put on some medieval armor and went to Washington to get their attention. Small country (the mouse) that roared (declared war) to get aid.

I think that North Korea is saber rattling and seriously needs attention to get into the same loop that has now made Russia and China two of the most wealthy countries in the world.

North Korea is now the mouse that roared. g
