I'm really curious lol..... why a 'Pool' hasn't been suggested, betting on the start day of a US and North Korea official war declaration.
Every time I come to my PC and opening page, I wonder ahead of time if I won't find that the war has started while I slept.
"2017 WMD-Why you MAD" thing is.... we know the missiles are real, pointed at us and SK and at a moments notice able to be launched.
While it is true that North Korea’s missile technology has significantly improved in recent months, the North’s Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missile, the weapon it would use to strike Guam, has only been tested successfully one time, indicating that it is likely not ready for combat operations. The U.S. also has several missile defense systems operational in the area, including the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system, which has a perfect test performance record.

The narrative from my perspective is this. They would if they could, we will if they don't stop. From the quote in the OP, it sounds very defensive. However their actions are seen as aggressive. Are they trying to play victim while launching missiles around Japan? OR, are we not getting the true, full story?
