Well, Kim Jong-Il took time out from wearing his high heels and wigs to test a new ICBM.
Why am I smiling? Because it backfired. The test was a dud, and if anything showed their threat of reaching the US west coast is not a reality. Russia and Japan are furious...and, best of all, North Korea relies on others, mainly China, to feed their people. Now they're likely to feel heat from China, which had been reluctant to take action against them.
Instead of scaring us, I think they just pissed off their neighbors. Way to go.
