My guess...more pressure by the Chinese on North Korea vis-a-vis nukes. I think this is why North Korea is threatening a test, to get it in before they make a concession to the Chinese in an effort to mask their ultimate backing down to pressure from the Chinese, the US, Japan, and others.

NK...When I look at Kim Jong Ill, I see a man that is sick. He will die in the next 10 years probably. He knows the comforts of western living, and I think he wants it for his people. Yes I am an optomist...He knows that all that he has to do is capitulate and his country will be rebuilt without even a war. He needs to save face and I think the bomb test is the face he wants to save. He might have even settled for the missile launch if it hadn't failed. He still favors himself a god even though he knows it isn't so, and will demand a slow transformation of his country till he dies. That is when I see a new beginning for NK. Again, yes I am an optimist...
