This is well within the capacity of even the smallest nuclear nation.... you know

North Korea claims to have gone nuclear.

Call me a bad man, but my first thought is to wonder about the impact on domestic politics here in the states. Will this hurt Republican candidates for congress and senate, by suggesting to the American people that current policies are making the world a more dangerous place? Or will it help said candidates, by getting the people's minds off of GOP congressmen who bugger 16 years old boys.

UPDATE: CNN international just gave their timeline of "how we got to this point" thusly:

-George Bush calls N. Korea part of "Axis of Evil"
-Everything goes to shit
-Blah Blah, crap with a Bank in Macau

One wonders if such sentiment will make it into the domestic CNN feed.
