North Korea, Iran and nuclear weapons

According to the Washington Post, South Korea's Foreign Minister, Yu Myung-hwan, says that North Korea sank a South Korean submarine.

Although I would presume that this is clearly an act of war, what can South Korea (or anyone else) do? Thanks to the Clinton Administration for giving the North Koreans nuclear power, and to the Bush Administration for doing nothing substantive to stop them, North Korea now has nuclear weapons. Being too aggressive with North Korea could end up in the incineration of millions in Seoul.

So South Korea and the West are pretty much powerless in the face of North Korean aggression and tyranny.

Just wait until Iran gets nuclear weapons! We will then be in the same situation--only with Iran, their leaders believe they have a mandate from God to spread Islam throughout the world--by any means necessary. When you think you have a mandate from God, no amount of negotiation or appeasement will dissuade you from your mission.

And the Obama administration fiddles while Iran builds the fire in which the world may well burn.
