Global tension subsides.

     PYONGYANG, North Korea, Dec. 21 (UPI) -- North Korea has retracted its threat to forcefully retaliate in response to a South Korean war drill that used live ammunition on an island shelled by North Korean artillery last month.

     Ahead of the exercise, the North Korean official news agency KCNA reported the "intensity and scope" of its retaliation would be much worse if Seoul went ahead with its one-day live-fire drills on Yeonpyeong Island. The threat heightened malaise across the Korean Peninsula and may have put even more pressure on China to rein in its client state. But once the drill took place, North Korea climbed down from its threat, saying South Korea's drill were "not worth" a response.
     "The revolutionary armed forces of the [Democratic People's Republic of Korea] did not feel any need to retaliate against every despicable military provocation," the agency said, quoting a communique from the North's Korean People's Army Supreme Command that referred to the drills as "childish play with fire."

Miley Cyrus, the next Britney?

     After being caught taking hits from a bong to celebrate her 18th birthday, Miley Cyrus is reportedly telling her friends that it’s no big deal.

     Posing for a video camera and getting a case of the giggles, Miley was filmed by friends at what appeared to be a "high school" party smoking salvia, a psychedelic drug more intense than marijuana.  Initially her camp tried to bury the video, offering a new MacBook Pro to a student who had a copy of the now infamous video clip.

     However, after a blasting from her father, Billy Ray Cyrus on twitter and a visit from her mother on set in New Orleans, friends of the singer insist, “Miley doesn’t care.  She’s filming her movie and getting on with her life".

     Anna Oliver, the girl who posted Miley's video online hopes to do the same, she had to delete her Twitter account after receiving threats when her identity was revealed.

     While I get that teenagers are going to experiment a little, I don’t understand why Miley insists on proving to the world that she really ‘Can’t Be Tamed’ on film.

     The video was promptly removed from Youtube but can still be found on forums and other media outlets.

Assange granted bail.

     The WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, was given bail today after the high court in London rejected an appeal against it by British prosecutors acting on behalf of Sweden. He is wanted in Sweden for questioning over rape allegations.
