The world changed today… we just don’t realize it yet…

And it happened when North Korea tested their nuclear weapon.

I was reminded of Paul Johnson’s Nuclear Nightmare piece from a few years ago:

The sound of the explosion was so loud, so prolonged and so unusual that I knew at once I was listening to a historic singularity. Indeed, it may not have been an explosion: more a catastrophic global event. Was it the end of the world?

    No one knows horror of nuclear nightmare better than N. Korea’s neighbor Japan. But the problem is every few decades some moronic leader will come up with great idea to make his nation suffer. This time N. Korean leader came up with Nuclear Furry. :(

    Thats the story of International politics.
