Part of me wonders if this is a direct result of the cancelation of food aid over the missile launch. It also is coming on the heels of news reports that China may have helped N. korea with thier missileprogram. The launcher apparently is Chinese in design, right down to the door handles of the truck.
Itas possible the economic situation in North Korea is worse off than what people think, which would be enough to force action. North Korea has very few options left, and turning the North into a society, even like what China has, will never happen.
That leaves North Korea 1 option left - survival of the government using whatever means available. We may be seeing an all or nothing strategy taking shape, designed to end the Korean war once and for all.

A senior North Korean army official says his country is armed with "powerful mobile weapons" capable of striking America.
He told officials at the April 25 House of Culture that the weapons could defeat the U.S. "at a single blow."

So when is this "suppose" to happen?
My buddy was stationed on the DMZ several years ago & he said the US troops are just a tripwire on the border. No way they could stop or barely slow dow any invasion from the north & the north has 100,000's of troops sitting on the border waiting to roll. I think Seoul is within 50 miles of the border so they could do serious damge to Seoul before we could get anything over there to stop them.
