BBC News - North Korea tensions: Russia's Lavrov fears 'spiral'# That little man in Pyongyang is at it again. I've no doubt Uncle Sam could vapourise North Korea in an afternoon, but Uncle Ivan is getting twitchy. If Uncle Chan wants his two penneth things could 'mushroom'. We had a thread on this topic last month......but the problem doesn't seem to want to go away. The nervous finger on the trigger could start twitching.............I seem to recall a situation in 1962 with Cuba.......only this time the bombs are bigger.
