North Korea engages in scare talk over possible nuke war in Korea; Iran bans Internet


The London Telegraph has a report by Malcolm Moore from Shanghai, China, “North Korea claims US could provoke nuclear war: North Korea has accused the United States of targeting it with nuclear missiles and warned that nuclear war could break out on the Korean peninsula.” The link is here.

It’s not clear if that speculation means that the nukes would come from North Korea or not. The CIA, in the past, has said that it is possible for North Korea to reach the Pacific Northwest with a rogue missile, possibly with an EMP blast.

Iran has banned Facebook and many other Internet services to stop protests of the recent election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. CNN link (about comparing the protests to a “football match”) is here.
