I hate to point out that the article is probably being a wee bit too optimistic and overestimating the will-be-viewers... umm familiarity with actual North Korean capability... or in current events in general, for that matter...

Other then that, this article is a good thing and its message must spread !

I bet this coalition includes Vietnam

^ I remember this was basically the plot for the game "Homefront" which I believe was based off of / inspired by Red Dawn.

Basically, Kim Jong-Un reconciles North Korea with the South, incorporates advanced technology with the militarism and patriotism of the North. Due to global economic issues, China, U.S. and EU falter -- Korea then goes on to invade Japan and the rest of Pac-Asia to form a massive alliance. Incorporates all Japanese technologies and adapts them for military use.

U.S. faces huge domestic civil unrest due to economic issues, Korea launches massive surprise assault on U.S. coupled with sleeper agents and EMP attacks to disable technology -- takes over almost all of the U.S.

Isn't there some logical health reason to not eat carnivorous mammals.

What the story doesn't tell us is whether the fire department responded, or if it just ignored the alarm for fifteen hours because it was a public housing project.

No one figured out a way to cut the wire on the alarm? Rip it off the building? What happened to good old American know-how and the do-it-yourself ethic?

They followed the American way and outsourced it to India.

Or, more charitably(?), hunted for an illegal immigrant to do it for them.

As "Americans" I'm pretty sure no one wanted to risk taking action out of fear of seeing a civil suit of some sort brought onto them.

Or, as tech blog Slashdot summed it up (with implied skepticism): “Not having a Facebook account could be the first sign that you are a mass murderer.”

I question their ability to even point the location of the said nation on the map.
