Nuclear nations are not a 'risk' when the nation is responsible and reliable to apply national standards with regards to protections and considerations of use: i.e. most want them as a 'deterent' TO attacks, not to use them. When in the hands of the likes of this madman? ....VERY SCARY.

I believe NK has become paranoid and crazy.  Are they trying to "wake the giant"?

At the same time, I wonder if this ship and NK's statements aren't some kind of diversion to get the US focusing in one direction while it tries to pull a sleight-of-hand in another direction.

Kim Jong-Il definitely is a madman! Impossible to reason w/ someone of this caliber! I deeply sympathize w/ the innocent N. Koreans & the neighboring Nations to this unpredictable dictator!

Could be a diversion.Right now the ships are sort of playing chicken.We have no right to board it at this point,but if the Korean ship goes inland for refueling or has to be towed in for fuel,they can be searched by the Port Authority.Hopefully,they will just head back to Korea,where they are out of reach.We have so many ships and intelligence units working all over the world.I am sure they are keeping their eyes peeled.

I admit I haven't been following this one EXTREMELY closely but I hear Pres. Obama says "we're prepared".

???!!! We are?

I'm not prepared to be attacked. Did I miss the preparations, or what?! It's a little troubling, I think.

Oh, I'm certain that our surveillance is right on.  I guess I should adjust and say that while we're watching NK, an NK ally could be the one pulling the sleight-of-hand.  So, I hope our intelligence gathering mechanisms are working together and they don't miss something right under their noses.  I don't mean that in a deragatory way, but s**t happens, you know?

 Remember he wanted to deweaponize space...That he hired John Deutsch to head a board to look at our Definse satelites to see what could be eliminated.

Yeah we are so not ready.

I believe the president is referring to our military.
