USA is again provoking that kim jong 2 again huh ... seriously nk is now a nuke power , if I were USA , i wouldnt attack them they would strike back with biological weapons(the only weapons their ICBM can deliver successfully )
and biological would destroy most of US population or at least kill hundreds of millions in USA
so why is USA provoking NK ?? are the Armageddonites in american govt , secretly fantaszing about the apocalyse being unleashed and Jesus Christ coming from heaven
ROFLMAO.....credibility went out the window suggesting NK and the capability to deliver such weapons via a ICBM. There last fell short by, oh, some 3,000 miles!!!
With the development of the Taepodong-2 missile, with an expected range of 5,000-6,000 km, North Korea could hypothetically deliver a warhead to almost all countries in Southeast Asia, as well as the western side of North America.
The Taepodong-2 missile was unsuccessfully tested on July 4, 2006. U.S. intelligence estimates that the weapon will not be operational for another 11 years. The Taepodong-2 could theoretically hit the western United States and other US interests in the Western hemisphere. The current model of the Taepodong-2 could not carry nuclear warheads to the United States. Former CIA director George Tenet has claimed that, with a light payload, Taepodong-2 could reach western parts of Continental United States, though with low accuracy

How is America "provoking" N.Korea?
By stopping the shipping of North Korea they have broken the terms of the truce agreed in the 1950's (as stated earlier in the thread)

The thing to be concerned about now comes down to motivation. If Lil' Kim is really on his last legs medically speaking, his motivation may be at an all time high. We aren't talking about a man who wants his country taken seriously as a economic giant. He wants his country known as a BAD MOFO.
He may be just rattling his sabre, but it's getting louder and louder on an atomic level.
Shot down in a blaze of glory.

God i hate the team america attitude, policing the world hasnt really worked out for you guys so far what make's this any different?
These sub's aint gonna be firing nothing sorry to dissapoint you
North Korea could look at it this way. The US is strained militarily and financially but would move to defend SK and Japan, expanding more resources and money.
