That Crazy North Korea (Monday's Show)

Hi everyone. I hope you had a nice weekend. Anderson had a speaking engagement, so we've got John Roberts. We begin with the news that while the US has been entralled by Foley, North Korea has been focused on a little something different. That focus being on something that goes boom. You may remember the missles they launched on July 4 and now they've stepped it up a notch, reportedly detonating a nuclear device underground. Is anybody really that shocked? When you have a crazy man in charge of a country and then don't attempt to talk with him this is pretty much what happens. Our first piece is from Dan Rivers, who explains that seismic activity was first picked up by the South Koreans. He states that the UN security council condemns the act (as if they'd be happy or something) and the US currently has 28,000 troops stationed in South Korea. We then get Dan live from the demilitarized zone (DMZ) and he informs us that right now there is limited trade between North and South Korea, but the South might put the kabosh on that due to this test.

On now to...well, actually that's it. I watched and took notes, but I'm short on time and it's really not worth it to do the whole review. Seriously, we were all North Korea and Foley tonight and a good deal of it was speculation. I'm not saying they're not important stories, but there's other stuff going on too. What happened with the contractor whose negligence poisoned food in Iraq? Also, the Woodward book revealed that James Carville tipped off his wife after the 2004 election that Kerry was going pursue a recount. Is that true? He works for CNN, I imagine it's pretty easy to get him on the phone. Anyway, tonight gets a C+

I didn't watch the show- John reminds me too much of a Ken Doll.

Oh yes! I was at another person's house so I didn't comment on the last post. I also visited your friend and commented over there. Thanks!
