I guess what they're talking about is the sixtieth anniversary of the commencement of hostilities. You are correct of course. The Korean war is not over. We are operating under a cease fire and have been for fifty seven years.

I'm kind of suprised Ban Ki Moon, UN Sec. Gen. wasn't there. After all, this involoved the first UN peacekeeping mission ever devised after the UN was created.

My guess is that the UN will be quite involved in putting a final end to this war-on-hold at some point, if 'lil Kim doesn't simply pre-emptively decide to get drunk one night and launches a nuke just to see a few fireworks displayed in his honor.

So while everyone is focused on nuclear terrorists, let us not dismiss the danger posed by those with questionable mental stability.

Could they ALL be so stupid as to all gather in one place... a place right next a madman with a nuclear bomb? And in 2012! Gotta hand it to those Mayans! They sure were on to something!
