North Korean Isolation.

Once again the World has taken note of the North Korean threat after their second attempt to test their weaponry which hopefully shan't lead to a battle of the superpowers a la the Soviets and the Americans in the Cold War or worse. But who is to blame; the leaders of the most isolated and ignored state on the Planet or the way the World leaders have treated them?

Our Prime Minister added: "The international community will treat North Korea as a partner if it behaves responsibly. If it does not, then it can expect only renewed isolation." Yet either way it will end in conflict that even Obama himself cannot prevent.

So the Koreans and the Iranians were secretly developing these terrifying missiles whilst the rest of us entertained ourselves with reality television, iPods and drinking excessive amounts.

Goes to show you can trust no-one in this murky life.

DPRK is a rogue state, no doubt about it, but I'm still not old nor cynical enough to stop feeling that's it's outrageous that certain countries (US, UK, France, Russia) tell everybody else that they can't have nuclear weapons, while maintaining their own. Added to that is the hypocrisy of preventing Iran and DPRK from building them, while encouraging and aiding India and Israel, despite their flagrant breaches of international law. I'm a member of CND - nobody should have them. But if the UK can have a 'deterrent', why shouldn't others have the same 'protection'?

Who gave the father of the Indian nuclear missile and honorary degree? Wolves Uni, that's who.
