Dear North Korea

Knock it off.  Srsly.  You're freaking me out.  You're like that crazy uncle everybody has who always makes folks vaguely uncomfortable and on edge because he will randomly and angrily spout conspiracy theories to strangers on the bus and refuses to get an e-mail address since he doesn't want to be on the grid, and then when he freaks out one day and shoots up the house on Thanksgiving nobody is surprised because, seriously, dude had problems.

I know that the Middle East is not the most stable area in the world, but to be honest I'm far more freaked out about what's going on in North Korea over what's going on in Iran.  Mainly because we don't know WTF is going on in there, and the only person who really has any idea is China, I don't trust China as far as I can throw them.

    I'm nodding.

    North Korea gets my vote for "most likely to start a real nuclear war".

    I heard on BBC news that there's a theory that Kim Jong Un has to prove himself as ready to lead to his father, and that many recent attacks (like this hour of fighting at the boarder, and the South Korean ship that was recently sunk) are his doing.

    And, to add to the shitpile, the idjits on Wall Street freak out because of this and send the DOW spiraling downward (down 125 points at this time).

    Scary.  I'm more than slightly nervous about North Korea right now.  It's worse because I don't totally understand everything that's going on (like all of the history, etc.)

    Hey, YIO- do me a favor?  In your sig, between your second picture and the quote, add a "<br* />" (without the *)?  It's driving me crazy that it's not all centered. thxmuch. :)

    I'm pretty sure it's the institutional and individual investors that drive the stock prices through supply and demand rather than "Wall Street" determining what happens.  Also, 125 points in the Dow is not a "spiral" downward, as much as the media would like you to believe.  It's a fluctuation and they happen every day.  Just like the other day when the Dow was up 125 points.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Dear North Korea : Very true, and it also was probably completely unrelated to N. Korea issue, dispite mass media's attempt to segway between stories - although threats of war often cause some people to sell off their stocks and trade them in for DoD bonds, nothnig like making some good old blood money.

    <p>I guess spiraling wasn't the right word.  My apologies...  And as for "Wall Street" I was generalizing...again, sorry.   I was just trying to make the point that what happens half a world away can have an impact on the financial dealings in the U.S.  </p>

    No worries.  I reacted a little strongly.  I agree completely that international events can trigger financial consequences everywhere.  It's part of the joy of living in a global economy. 

    I just hate that I open up cnn and see a breaking news headline about the DOW dropping by a few points.
