Arms control

I am a bit concerned about the violation by North Korea of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, although technically they withdrew from the treaty in January 2003.

The announcement yesterday by North Korea of the development of nuclear weapons for self-defence only adds to the tensions on the peninsular and the north east Asian region.

The dynamics of the shift in influence in the region will be interesting to observe.

Merlin's human, Kim came over tonight and I enjoyed sitting on her lap. They had thick sirloin steak seared medium rare in truffled butter served with mashed potato and sweet potato with seared asparagus splashed with balsamic vinegar. I had a little bit of leftover steak! I was offered some fresh cooked tuna but turned my nose at it (didn't feel like it) and had my usual wings.

This morning I was feeling skittish so I played ping pong ball with my human before he went to work. It was a lot of fun - he would roll the ball on the floor towards me and I would bat it with my paws, that is unless I wanted to catch it and hide it under my chin.
