Deacon: And what do you suggest doing about it? Invade North Korea? Or perhaps a less belligerent posture would serve us better. If we know the other side is "packing heat", doesn't it make sense to be less bellicose? If you know your neighbor has a gun, do you cuss him over the back fence?

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...
