Sorry, man. The moment someone says "CNN" with a straight face (or the online equivalent), my eyes just glaze over and my left arm starts to twitch a little.

This evacuation thing might be real. The 600,000 evacuated could be the "chosen ones". 2.4 million remain in Peonyogang.

I sure hope the next crazy desperate dictator move isn't to pack a huge number of innocent people near their nuclear facilities or something.
I also wonder what will happen to the North Koreans if they are liberated? Will they want to be? After living under death and the death of their families I wonder how well they'd be able to assimilate under the rule of a fair government.
A conflict over North Korea could break out "at any moment", China's foreign minister Wang Yi said Friday, warning there would be "no winner" in any war, as tensions soar with the US.
"If a war occurs, the result is a situation in which everybody loses and there can be no winner," he said during a joint press conference with his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault.
Mr Wang said that whichever side provoked a conflict "must assume the historic responsibility and pay the corresponding price."

you know what, I lived the Cold War on the side of Warsaw Pact. The civil defense was a school-day exercise, mandatory. The West just believes its own stories how bad the East is/was. I bet the Americans are less prepared for nuclear war than the North Koreans, Chinese, Russians, and on the other side, Swedish, and Swiss who have reportedly bunkers for 100% of the population.
Do you know where you will go in the case of nuclear war? What strange that North Korea, preparing for that big war for decades, cares for its citizens to continue the life when all is over? Of but their leaders are animals...we heard recently.
