So tired of hearing this. What is his grand move if he has nukes? Seriously... countries have had nukes since the 50's. If he launches them he is toast. Even Russia and China would have to respond. BFD he has nukes. He can't use em.

I'd like to share a link (from over 5 years ago):

link


Many of the countries along the route have asked for U.S. assistance in tracking the missile's trajectory, which has sophisticated radars and a number of antiballistic missile ships in the region.

The White House and the State Department have stayed in close contact with Asian nations.

The primary focus, however, has been putting pressure on China to rein in North Korea, which thus far has shown little willingness to cooperate. "It is fair to say that the Chinese are spending most of their time telling the U.S. to relax," the official said.


Note the date of this article. Yes, it is from over 5 years ago (April 2012). Still...this incessant firing of missiles and nuke testing is news, somehow. Nothing has changed and it will not. North Korea will continue to develop it's weapons, it will continue testing, it will become a nuclear power.

From another, more recent article:


It has become highly probable that the worst-case scenario will become a stark reality sooner or later: North Korea will become a nuclear state and the international community will eventually be forced to recognise it as such, publicly or otherwise.


Source

Until North Korea is recognized as a nuclear power on the world stage, this testing and saber-rattling will continue. Or, alternately, something will go wrong and a whole lot of people will die.

Can we just pat Kim and on the head and say, "Yes buddy, you're in the big-boy nuke club now...have a cookie"? And get on with our lives?

If we allow Kim to continue his nuke program at break-neck speed, WE will pay a heavy price. It's either us or them.



So are you willing to kill 25 million in Soul alone? How about another 25 million in North Korea... When you say us or them...who is us? NK can not hit the US with a missile even if they had a missile that could physically make it here.

At the end of the day they will need to be the one to strike first.... That will keep China out of it.

My heart goes out to the people of north korea. They deserve better and we can't do anything to make that a reality.
At this point I think china should step up to the plate and set things straight. If they refuse we will and it's not going to be pretty.

I almost get the feeling that kim is doing this on purpose, he wants this to end. Badly

Folks have to realize, they can test all they want. Should anyone shoot their 'test' missile down, it is an act of war.


Only true if the missile remains in North Korean airspace. If it enters Japan airspace and is shot down, it is absolutely not an act of war. That said, it is well past time for the US to commit an act of war: namely removing Pyongyang from existence.


Sure, as soon as China gives the okay sign.


Wasting munitions to shoot down non threats seems like a waste, however the publicity is worth its weight in gold.

FFS Little Kim, stop playing chicken with the rest of the world..... He's like a kid with a nerf gun, pointing it at cops. At somepoint the Cop is going to react! If you are lucky its getting dragged to your parents (China) and they deal with you, if not ... well yeah we know what that ends up like.

It landed 1,240 miles off the cape of Erimo in Hokkaido island at about 7.06am local time.

He can use them to blackmail countries like Japan and South Korea, and they have a history of such actions.

And hes crazy enough he might pop one off if he doesnt get his way. Hard to say. If Tokyo gets nuked would you want to have that blood on your hands? Dont get me wrong, theres no good choice here, just saying thats the other side of it. And its very real.

Just EMP NK.
It's not like the majority of NK citizens will miss electricity, internet or mobile communication.

Im quite sure that is part of the war package should it kick off. Though that wont do anything with emp protected targets or the 1950s array of mortars aimed at south korea.

Those calling for inaction, what do you say to the people of Japan who were undoubtedly cowering in fear while holding their children as tight as possible during the flight?

Why should they live in terror?

This little prickly is breaking UN Resolutions with every launch, so why aren't more nations doing more?

Well I am pretty sure it would reduce considerably what they could sling at SK.

I don't know why more people can't see what the motive might be for NK, China, the U.S, the UN, etc... They are all run by globalists and the globalists WANT this.

They know millions of refugees fleeing the US and millions in Asia will force borders around the world to open.

Don't expect anyone to stop this.

No doubt but NK would literally be reduced to glass if they do that. Before the missles get there SK is leveled. It is a true stalemate/zero sum game. Just like our adversarial relationship(s) with Russia and China. We still have tools, but in this case he has a dead mans switch.

Also, speaking of crazy... How do you feel other countries feel about the Donald having his finger on the button? Many would say he is two bricks less crazy than Kim.

Oh please.. Every person in the world is in range of a nuke. If one is launched without approval from the rest of the world that nation is done for.

Ahh, mobile communications. Gota tell a war story here on that one.
You guys know how old people love to tell stories, but this one is true.

May 19,2004 - DPRK All mobile communications were abruptly shut off. Of the privileged few that had cell phones, had there's confiscated within the next 24Hr. It would be over five years before mobile communications would be reactivated.

That honestly is the next headline on the timeline.

"North Korea seizes U.S. ally Japan in terror!"

It's not in our hands, it never was. The agenda marches on.
