Oh, come on, Pat. You know better than that. In fact, you know me. We met years ago in D.C., when I was lobbying for my clients to get contracts to supply U.S. military forces worldwide. My grandchildren now have the business, and the clients still need those contracts and my little great grandkids need to sit around the pool with their mommies at the country club, while their dads get in another round of golf.

North Korea has just pulled off an impressive dual feat -- the successful test both of an intercontinental ballistic missile and an atom bomb in the 6-kiloton range.

Pyongyang's ruler, 30-year-old Kim Jong Un, said the tests are aimed at the United States. So it would seem. One does not build an ICBM to hit Seoul, 30 miles away.

Experts believe North Korea is still far from having the capability to marry a nuclear warhead to a missile that could hit the West Coast. But this seems to be Kim's goal.

Why is he obsessed with a nation half a world...
