His only leverage is to make everybody think he's suicidal enough to lob a nuke or some other horror.

He won't negotiate until he convincingly demonstrates that he can hit CONUS with a delivery system...or at least makes us believe he can. I don't think he's quite there yet so the anthrax warhead is just more provocative blather.

I think the people most alarmed right now are the Japanese. If they feel it's a for-real threat, we may be called to intervene in some capacity. If Japan decides they don't want to wait for the US to make a decision, things will get ugly quick-like.

Testing the loading of something doesn't necessarily mean they have intent to use it. It means they want the option.

Deception. Let the guy cross, fuel the missiles later, flex his nuts a little as a result. We can say that's far-fetched, but I don't put anything past that place or its leader. Regardless, I think the 'anthrax on a missile" story, if true, is nothing but posturing. I won't lose sleep.

Yeah I agree.

He was probably vaccinated, hence the antibodies. Many of our SM’s who took a jaunt to the Middle East in the last 17 years have some antibodies as well.
What was it, like 5 injections? Six? All of which made me sick (something in the preservative).
