Honestly I think what is being missed in this whole situation is the bigger threat, China. If you look at their stance on our and NK's situation along with their land grabbing efforts, and their little interest in the global melting pot debacle. Also take in consideration their gender dynamics which leaves a lot of fighting aged males available to be spared to create more of a long term balance. To me this insinuates something more nefarious in the works. They seem to have no intention of reeling lil' Kim in, which they have the power to do. So me thinks them allowing his provocation could suggest they are actually behind it. Imo

Crush their economy (blockade?) or at least make it worse then it is, if that is even possible. If NK launches missiles toward Guam, as he has threatened, shoot them down. Our military will be able to tell where they are heading very soon after launch. I wouldn't attack the North unless they attack us or the South.
Start dropping leaflets and small single channel radios over their country to inform their population what the heck is going on and we do not want to go to war unless we have no other choice. Dropping leaflets or small radios to the population is not an act of war. The radios would only be able to receive 1 station , and that is the station that we broadcast to the NK population. The people are very repressed there so I don't really know what effect this would have but it is sure to unnerve the leadership who is hiding virtually everything from them.
The bottom line is keep turning up the pressure at every turn until something pops. Maybe some of their military will see the futility of backing their present leader and take him out. We don't want to be seen as starting an armed conflict but we need to be seen as the ones who will finish it.

I've said the same thing a million times. dennis Rodman and a butt ton of liquor. kim likes the booze. star quality diplomacy. get drunk, shake hands, poof! no missiles fired (as if, anyway). trump could make a total fool of all the naysayers and build a brand beyond the presidency. it's all just a show anyway.
