Apparently the only target for this nutter is America.
Nuts is nuts

This is what I worry about with North Korea. Everyone laughs at the nut and does nothing. That allows him to build whatever he wants. I don't think the US has a really good idea of what he has or is capable of building.

If you lob a 5KT missile at a city, and have a 2 mile CEP, then there's a remarkably good chance that you missed the city. Yes, you did a lot of damage to the area outside the city, but nowhere near what you could have. And if you're aiming for a command post, or somewhere specific, your odds of hitting are much lower. Accuracy isn't AS important as it is with a conventional weapon system, but it's still pretty important.
So it's better to allow a few hundred thousand to die, and South Korea to be more or less hammered flat to stop something that MIGHT happen?

If we, the US, attack NK they will attack SK, Japan, possibly Australia. I have no doubt some of the weapons used will be nuclear.
There is no good military option.
Diplomacy seems ineffective, not even welcome by NK.
Sanctions are a joke.
What are we supposed to do against this country?
This has been going on for far too long, not sure what they have up their sleeve but NK wants the US to launch an attack.
