PYONGYANG has kept the world on edge over an expected missile launch while turning its own energies to celebrating leaders past and present amid soaring tensions on the Korean peninsula.

The United States warned North Korea it was skating a “dangerous line”, as South Korea remained on heightened alert for any missile test that could start a whole new cycle of tensions in a region already on a hair-trigger.

G8 foreign ministers meeting in London drove home the message, condemning “in the strongest possible terms” the North’s nuclear activities and threats to the region.

About politicalsleightofhand

People who know me would say I'm a political junkie. Some say I should run for office. They would be right about the first part, the later however, well let's just put it this way, I'd rather study them than be studied, lol. When I'm not voicing my opinion, I love computers, web surfing, stamps, coins, gardening, reading, and the english language. My wife has put up with me for more than 23 years, I love sitting on our porch with her, overlooking our paradise on water, during the warmer months. We are both spring babies, our favorite time of year is watching our trees and plants wake up and then go through their cycle. My illustration here of who I am depicts, or at least I hope depicts that I'm not just about politics. My heart belongs to God, my wife and my country. I am a warm blooded male American P8triat, who loves his country, his life, being an American, and all the benifits that America has to offer, especially the first Amendment. MY MISSION STATEMENT! "It is the duty of the patriot 2 protect his country from its government". – Thomas Paine
