North Korea: What "nightmare scenario"?

Yes, this is indeed where our attention should be:

On CNN's Late Edition, Mohamed ElBaradei, Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said that North Korea may already have as many as five or six nuclear bombs, and the Pentagon announced last Friday that North Korea may be preparing to test one of those devices. Said ElBaradei: "I think that test could open a Pandora's box, frankly. I do not know what will happen afterwards... I do not know how sophisticated the North Koreans are with regard to conducting a test without radiological fallout. But clearly there would be a lot of insecurity fallout... I think everybody today should be calling Pyongyang trying to persuade Kim Jong Il not to go ahead with such a test." CNN reports a potential "nightmare scenario" here, along with updates on both North Korea and Iran.

So what was that about Paula Abdul again?
