I have to agree with NK on this one . USa has conssistently been provoking the nk and if I were USA , I would take NK seriously as they have excellent bioweapons program
Total Bull#! North Korea was found to have been secretly violating the nuclear non-proliferation treaty a few years ago - a treaty that THEY signed in good faith, and has ever since been rattling the sabre at the U.S. and its allies.
You can take your one-sided assessment and cram it.
The NPT is the most widely accepted arms control agreement; only Israel, India, and Pakistan have never been signatories of the Treaty, and North Korea withdrew from the Treaty in 2003.
Only four recognized sovereign states are not parties to the treaty: India, Israel, Pakistan and North Korea.

Here's my 2 cents for whatever its worth. China had been and still is NK's largest trading partner and a major trading ally for most the Asian region. I don't doubt that the chinese gov't if not the chinese intelligence services have been making overatures to key people within NK in the eventuality that KJI does finally cross the threshold push things to a retalitory level. If this does go down and KJI orders full scale attacks or even orders some type of action that incurs military response , China will give the go and a military coup will occur. They will announce this in fact right after it was done and thier pawns were in place. They will then send in aid as well the interim gov't will ease some of the laws and rules in place at the behest of the chinese gov't. They will then work with the IAEA to locate and seize any nuclear arms and offer full transparency of the seizures and eliminating any chance of NK to re arm. This will allow them to take center stage and alot of countries will applaud them for taking such a bold move and preventing a serious conflict in the region. Thier standing in the world community skyrockets, new trade routes and an economic boom ensue , thus further eroding the U.S.'s standing in the world. Just my theory but I feel it may be the right one.
P.S. This also negates the possibility of the U.S. or allies from gaining ground in NK.
