Who is the bigger threat? Does anyone else think that it is scary that Biden's one prediction has come true? I think it is North Korea at the moment because Iran is busy with its protests. Yes, I think it is scary. Also, I think it is ironic that the USS John McCain is the ship tracking North Korea's ship.

It depends on who is being threatened. There's a lot going on when it comes to North Korea right now. Russia and China are working hard to settle down it's little dictator and, with the cooperation of whatever nation that suspect ship tries to refuel in, it will be boarded by U.N. inspectors before it can continue along it's route. If it's found to be in violation of U.N. mandates, it's cargo will be confiscated. Meanwhile the U.S. is relocating defensive equipment to Hawaii which sends a message in and of itself. China will have the option of shooting North Korea's missile out of the sky without fearing a response from them because even the North Korean nutjob isn't likely to take on China AND Russia...and especially not with South Korea poised to move in on them as well. As far as Iran goes, the protests aren't going to last forever and neither will Israel. I believe that Israel will strike first if pushed too far by Iran.

I think its Iran, they are on record as saying they wanna wipe out our closest friend Isreal and now that the country is in shambles with protests you may see terrorist sneak on in and aquire information on very serious weapons. I think North Korea just wants attention and is testing to see how well China will stick up for them in the event of conflict with us.

I definitely think North Korea is the bigger threat right now but hopefully China and Russia will help get them under control. I really don't think Vice President Biden's "prediction" is all that relevant. Let's face it, there are international crises every so often so to say any new President will be tested within about 6 months of taking office is an easy bet. It sure is ironic that the ship tracking the N. Korean ship is the USS John McCain. I thought I heard it wrong when they first said that on TV. Annie
