What did the Slovak paper say about this? Also, was the U.S. government aware that there were actual pictures of this blast out there?
I'll say one thing, I'm just glad that China, North Korea, et al. speak loudly but are afraid to use their stick. They could very easily cause great havoc if they wanted. Supposing they invaded--just for starters--Tawain and South Korea, warning that if the west intervened they'd drop some nukes (or maybe China could threaten to hit U.S. cities with ICBM's again--though this time the threat would be more legitimate). In such a scenario, would we make a move, knowing that we would be costing millions their lives?
