Personally, I'd like to see this lead to reunification of the two countries.

The NoKo govt would fold like a house of cards once exposure to the much more affluent South began to take place. Once done, this on again, off again crisis, sixty years in the making would be over in all likelihood.

That would be the perfect scenario. China would be fine with NO NK refugees and SK could bring the folks into this century. Being freed from prison the last few relatives of Kim imposed upon the entire populace.... it would be the most humane thing I can think of.

VP Mike Pence is now visiting the Korean Demilitarized Zone, and it does appear that some kind of "talks" are underway. The pre-emptive strike option is off the table for now, according to National Security Advisor, H.R. McMaster...

""The United States, its allies and China are working together on a range of responses to North Korea's latest failed ballistic missile test, U.S. President Donald Trump's national security adviser said on Sunday, citing what he called an international consensus to act.

H.R. McMaster indicated that Trump was not considering military action for now, even as a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier strike group was heading for the region.

"It's time for us to undertake all actions we can, short of a military option, to try to resolve this peacefully," he said on ABC's "This Week" program. "We are working together with our allies and partners and with the Chinese leadership to develop a range of options."

"There is an international consensus now, including the Chinese leadership, that this is a situation that just cannot continue," McMaster said.

The Trump administration is focusing its North Korea strategy on tougher economic sanctions, possibly including an oil embargo, a global ban on its airline, intercepting cargo ships and punishing Chinese banks doing business with Pyongyang, Reuters reported last week, citing U.S. officials.

While Trump has employed tough rhetoric in response to North Korea's recent missile tests, the new U.S. president's options appear limited in dealing with a challenge that has vexed his Oval Office predecessors.

Most options fall into four categories: economic sanctions, covert action, diplomatic negotiations and military force.""

Maybe Kim will have one of those Desert Rat moments so we don't have to send flowers again?

No I didn't say trump created the north Korea issue. He did create this current pissing contest with his chest beating though.

He comes up with good ideas while on the golf course!

Wrong he beat the Chinese President in a game of Golf which is why they are agreeing to send 150k troops.

Once the relationship is formed, Washington would station an infantry outside Pyongyang, North Korea's capital, to protect the Kim Jong-un regime...

And of course, China agrees to US troops outside of Pyongyang? Protecting the regime from self? Fake news all over the place!

EU attempts at assassination of Kim, will only result in a lot more EU and US agents being executed in the DPRK.

Up here we go again NK threatens Nuclear War so they can get Food for there People.

It is odd to see that most people treat the North Coreans as if they were held hostage. NK dont know what a Democracy is like. And have no reason to want it.

This is not a hostage rescue mission. The North Coreans won't see Our attack as a liberation, Far from it. These People hate us and dont see any good in Our policies....damn we have sanctioned them to nearly the brink of starvation. Dont think for a second that they dont know. Nk will fight to their Deaths if we are dumb enought to attack.

If everyone doesn't remember NK has done things like this many times over the years. They start saber rattling, finally get what they want and promise to stop developing Nuclear weapons, then after they receive what they wanted it's bissness as usual, more testing, more development, more oppression.

If we keep screwing around one day he really will have the means to carry out his threats...

I agree. Sanctions hurt the people of a country. The leaders will continue to do just fine. The leaders must be taken out.

No way.. cant be real! Folks on ATS said this was the begining of ww3, the end of the world as we know it, armageddon, the Trumpocalypse.. or Kimpocalypse.. and we all should just kiss our asses goodbye.

No WW3 will happen until US directly attack China/Russia/Canada.

North Korean repeated crises are just a bunch of orchestrated clown shows. We are all focused on Syria.
At minimum NATO mistake, all NATO bases blow up.... starting from British airbase in Cyprus.

Apparently, the Korea Times publication was fed FAKE NEWS. In reality, North Korea is now threatening Great Britain with a "miserable end to its existence".


North Korea is a professional taunter.. Their threats mean less and less, with each threat made.
