The word: catastrophe

Stephen Colbert explains why the US should attack North Korea at once -- to "snatch military success from the jaws of diplomatic victory". Because otherwise, "this triumph of diplomacy could make people think that diplomacy can triumph."

As Colbert so rightly observes, "Back in 2003 we could have tried one of these cash-for-peace negotiations with Iraq, but we went first class. We went with a full-scale invasion. Half a trillion dollars."

Immediate invasion of North Korea by America "might make might look right".
