Oh Crap

Today's Oh Crap moment brought to you by the Government of North Korea which today announced that it has nuclear weapons. They also decided to walk out of disarmament talks for good measure. So we will not tolerate Saddam Hussein even thinking about trying to start getting nukes, but North Korea shouts to the world it has them and:

On Thursday, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called on North Korea to reconsider its decision to withdraw from the talks or risk further isolation.

Rice said the North Koreans, by leaving negotiations, would be "deepening their isolation because everyone in the international community, and most especially North Korea's neighbors, have been very clear that there needs to be no nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula in order to maintain stability in that region."

"Risk further isolation" What? A member of the Axis of Evil says it has nukes and Rice says that the most isolated Nation in the world might be further isolated? OOOO big talker.

At the risk of sounding completely cynical, I think the key difference here is that N. Korea doesn't have vast oil fields that the Bush admin. would like to "protect."
