North Korea: Something Ain't Right

FN: Like I said last week, North Korea is even crazier than usual. More missile tests. This is quite the escalation. Usually provocations are organized individually and well spaced out so "nobody does anything stupid" in sudden panic. Now in rapid succession we've seen the following:

1) Surprise nuclear test.
2) Officially rip up the 1953 Armistice.
3) Test missiles.

Something ain't right.

Gates Says ‘Some Signs’ North Korea May Test Missile (Update2): "U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said North Korea may be preparing to conduct its second long- range ballistic missile test since April, following last month’s detonation of a nuclear device.

“We have seen some signs that they may be doing something with another Taepodong-2 missile,” Gates said at a press conference in Manila with Philippines Defense Secretary Gilbert Teodoro. “But at this point it’s not clear what they’re going to do.”"
