“We do not conceal the fact that, in this all-out war of confrontation, which is a new stage of the anti-U.S. struggle century after century, various satellites and long-range rockets which we will launch one after another and a high-level nuclear test that we will conduct will all target the United States, our people's arch-enemy.”— Jan. 24 statement from North Korea’s National Defense Commission, Pyongyang’s most powerful body. It almost reminds you of a spoiled and screaming (albeit perhaps nuclear-armed) toddler.

In other words, the leaders of every country have at least one thing in common, and that is to demonize concocted enemies as a means of distracting their citizens from their own domestic problems. Washington or Pyongyang, Jerusalem or London, it matters not. They all do it. They're all " spoiled and screaming toddlers."
