If the North Koreans shoot down my plane, tell my Mom I love her.

March 6th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Politics, Rants


North Korea, which is preparing to test its longest-range missile, said on Thursday it could not guarantee the safety of the South’s commercial flights off the east coast of the peninsula where the missile base is located.

It linked the warning to next week’s joint U.S.-South Korea military drills which it regularly criticizes as a prelude to war.

I’m SOOOO excited to be flying back into Seoul on Monday!

    Take comfort in Brinskmanship as a strategy. Threatening to, say, shoot down planes gets North Korea free stuff. Actually shooting down planes=no more free stuff.
