I think you may have gotten your sports metaphor slightly mixed there. :notsure:

2:10, oddly enough right after "Sun readers don't care who run the country so long as she's got big tits."

Unfortunately, some of the ones when his entire responses are nothing but mixed sports cliches does not seem hosted.

I'm starting to feel more pessimistic about this.
Actually just reverting to my earlier pessimism.

It really was a little too good to be true that North Korea would suddenly change its stripes like that.

"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

The only shift in NK policy that will ever matter is if they decide they no longer want reunification.

Until that can be established, every NK action can be safely assumed to be aimed at that goal and shouldn't be taken at face value.
