NK in and of itself is laughable. Though, one has to give some thought to the idea that they probably would not be acting so brazen unless they are indeed being backed by a powerhouse.
Correct me if I'm wrong but...does the US have some reason that we should trust China? Or Russia for that matter?
I find it worrysome that so many think we are beyond betrayal by these nations! Let's face it, not too many countries are holding us in their high esteem these days.
Personally, I am concerned. It's been prophesized for ages that China would be detrimental to the USA, why not in this scenario? I'm no bible thumper or crystal rubber but some things just make sense. I'm a little worried about how this one is going to play out.

This is like the punk running his mouth, what a tough guy he is. Alot of people believe him and are afraid of him.
So this goes on till a real tough guy kicks the crap out of him, and he whimpers away.
Threats like this need to be addressed, before thay are able to fullfill, their threat.
Japan cried because we Nuked them, but if you think for second they would not of done it to us to a even greater extent, your in dream land.
I would tell NK to cease and desists, or suffer the consequences, to me this threat is declaring war on United States and it's people.

Maybe North Korea is simply going to print maps without the U.S. on them? Makes more sense, no?

All they have to do is sell them to some crazy Saudis mad about our presence in the Middle East in secret...sure it wouldn't "wipe" us off the map, but it would kill thousands if not millions if someone successfully smuggled one in and detonated it..
