This cartoon appeared in the Dutch opinion magazine 'de Humanist' (issue 5?, 2006)

The Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea (DPRK) or simply North Korea as most know it, has tested a nuclear weapon. The world is in outrage, as was to be expected, and the DPRK boasted about being glorious in their patented way.

But in the end, with so many full fledged nuclear states, is a small upstart such as the DPRK really that much of a problem?

Yes, it is a problem. Because the Pyongyang elite are unstable.

Heres the thing, US is having joint military exercises with Russian forces. China on the other hand, rely's on the US for their businesses.

We should focus less on the missiles that he's pointing at Japan and instead focus on liberating the country in a way that does not involve occupation.

Well, as far as I know, they never quite figured out what happened, what with all the secrecy in the DPRK and all, but their nuclear experiment did seem to be a failure. Regardless, if it weren't for the fact that they stopped pushing towards developing the bomb, their success would surely only have been a matter of time.

Of course, knowing the DPRK leadership, I wouldn't be surprised if something went wrong in the negotiations and they started again.

But on the other hand, China might have made it clear to them that it doesn't appreciate them potentially going nuclear.
