I do not believe that North Korea embarked on this act of defiance against the world and an UN Resolution (I mean who can ignore the United Nations?) to rattle a saber at America and show us they can indeed reach the shores of America by hitting Alaska. I believe Kim-Makes-Me-Ill was filming a commercial for the world’s America-haters and terrorists. Now they can start selling their toy to the highest bidder.

Thanks for pointing out the obvious, Mr. Illustrious Leader.
