Revelations 5:4 (NIV) — Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other. To him was given a large sword.
Okay, so a nuclear weapon isn’t necessarily the latest sign of an impending apocalypse. Still, methinks it’s not a good sign.
11/0515L Oct 2006 Update: Doubts surface as to the veracity of North Korea’s claim. But on the other hand, the "Chonger" seems to be volunteering to test another one more openly. Notice he doesn’t bother telling publicly where he plans to launch his missile. I suspect that if he’s weaponized a missile, he’ll probably have it launched into the ocean for a spectacular airburst. I just hope he mentions where its going so we can divert sea and air traffic! Of course, this brings up the possibility of testing the ABM system as well. . . .
