Be careful what you wish for

I am not, by nature, a warmonger. But I understand that, sometimes, the use of force against an enemy nation is necessary.

Case in point: North Korea.

Saber rattling, which the North's dictator, Kim Jong Il, has turned into an art form, is one thing. But bombing a South Korean island and killing innocent people is quite something else, and it can't be tolerated.

Kim warned on Friday that planned joint military exercises nearby by the United States and South Korea will bring the region to the "brink of war."

Perhaps it's time for the Obama administration to prove Kim right — and shut him up once and for all.
