I think it's funny how Iraq is the focal point of the U.S. right now because of it's alleged WMD's, yet not one has been found...Iraq is bending over backwards to comply with UN demands and Bush still threatens to nuke them...then North Korea openly admits that it has nuclear capabilites and what does the U.S. do?....nothing. Bush isn't even trying to hide the fact he's after oil anymore...nothing more.

Why worry, unless you live in South Korea?

The reasons the U.S. isn't making a fuss about North Korea are:
1) Because of North Korea's big brother, China, will only put up with so much meddling in their own neighborhood.
2) There ain't much oil in the region and the Japanese still make better cars than the South Koreans.
3) South Koreans have a very small presence in the lobbying industry.
4) The Bush administrations foreign policy is crafted by a gaggle of hypocritical short-sighted imperialists who equate U.S. National interest with the interest of large donors to BOTH parties ('bipartisanship' is very important here).

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.
