Rise and shine, sleepyheads. You thought this year might be different? C'mon, guys. It's barely nine hours old here in Virginia, and we already have adequate proofs that 2006 is just 2005's ugly sister.
The J-Post reports, based on a story in a German newspaper, that we are planning a military strike on Iran. This is a combination of German disdain for any war Germany doesn't start and Israelis thinking wishfully that we will do it before they have to. And the London Times reports that the ever-charming Kim Jong-il's regime is restarting a nuclear reactor that will enable it to make about ten nuclear weapons a year. This despite the six-party talks that were supposed to get the North Korean genie back in the bottle.
