There may be questions about North Korea’s capabilities when it comes to effectiveness on the ground, ballistic missiles and even nuclear capabilities, but experts agree that the artillery units being tested this week present a clear and present danger to our allies.
George Friedman, founder of Geopolitical Futures, told Tucker Carlson recently that given those heavily-fortified and strategically placed artillery units, "if they open fire on [Seoul,] there is going to be a holocaust."

SK has no official leadership till elections happen this month. All indications show however, that SK will be under far leftist rule in the near future. So that means they will pander to Kimmy and allow for future production of NK ICBMS and nukes etc... all kinds of goodies to allow for NK to finally realistically make due on it's threats.
Thank God for lefty idiots supporting communistic rogue regimes to do whatever they want so that one day, their psychopathic dreams of socialist/communistic threats can come true. They are LOVING people. RIGHT???
Hippies are assholes when looking at the grand scheme of things. They look all nice and peaceful on the surface, till their "utopia" becomes a reality in the form of Hell on Earth.
“I agree with President Trump’s method of applying sanctions and pressure to North Korea to bring them out to negotiate. If that happens, I would meet with Kim Jong-un,” he said, adding: “I believe President Trump is more reasonable than he is generally perceived.”
Mr Moon’s comments are in line with President Trump’s statements in an interview last week when he said that he would be “honoured” to meet Mr Kim “under the right circumstances” and described him as a “smart cookie.” The president’s change in tone struck a sharp contrast with the inflammatory war rhetoric from both sides over the past few weeks during which he raised the possibility of “major, major conflict” with North Korea.
While Kim Jong-un’s propaganda machine either makes ridiculously inflated claims of its military prowess, or else keeps silent when their missiles explode, the US propaganda machine is working overtime to pump up the alleged threat from Pyongyang. Although there is no evidence to support the claim that these North Korean failures were the result of US sabotage, there’s been much speculation to this effect – a contention that simultaneously inflates both the danger posed by Kim Jong-un’s regime and the supposed near omnipotence of American power.
It’s all hype. North Korea cannot even feed its own people. Despite the seriocomic pretensions of its propagandists, the country’s level of technological development is primitive, at best. A photo of Kim Jong-un sitting in front of a computer that looks like something out of the 1950s is hardly a testament to the wonders of North Korean technology. Not that the very real possibility of war with North Korea is a laughing matter, but the reality is that the threat is not to the United States. Kim Jong-un can’t hit Hawaii, or the Pacific coast of the United States: however, he can hit Seoul. North Korean artillery are thirty miles away from that city of several million, and within six minutes of the commencement of hostilities the South Korean capital would be engulfed in a sea of fire.
