Dear North Korea,
If you're reading this and actually do intend to launch a nuclear attack on the United States, could you please aim for the bible belt? Anywhere in the south would be great, but if you could get rid of Louisiana, Kentucky, Kansas, Florida, Mississippi, or Georgia (I think you get the point), a lot of us would be very appreciative. Anywhere in Texas other than Austin would be a good start, too. You likely won't have that many shots before being turned to ash, so you should make sure the ones you do have count.
Also, could you do something about our congress when you have a chance?

You had better hope the U.S. Economy never collapses as not only is the U.S. Economy the worlds largest but it interconnected with the World Economy to a point that as the U.S. Economy goes...so does the rest of the World.
A war with China is Highly Unlikely and China has structured it's entire Economy around making goods destined for U.S. Markets. None of these goods is a necessity. China also has given large loans to cover U.S. Debt. This was a miscalculation by the Chinese Communist Leadership as if a war was to break out it puts China in the bad position of no longer having the Worlds largest Market to ship Multiple Billions worth of Goods as well as having the U.S. stop all loan payments.
China's economy cannot survive such action...the U.S. Economy could. But this is a moot point as China would never be so suicidal as to start a war with the U.S.
Also...there are a lot more ROCKS in that damp treeless environment that is Scottland...LOL!
Two favorite Scottish pastimes...eating a stuffed stomach...and making free standing rock walls. LOL!
You can't walk 2 feet in a field...which will be sloped at a steep angle and saturated with water...without tripping on a ROCK!

The LAST thing China want's is a WAR with the U.S.
What is the very first thing the U.S. would do at the start of such a war?
Answer...it would stop payments on all loans given to it from China and stop all shipments of Chinese Goods headed to the U.S.
Such a war would collapse the Chinese Economy in a WEEK!

The North Koreans are not saying they are going to lob Nuclear missiles at the United States. They are only confirming that they will soon posses the capability.
On the conspiracy side of things, you could argue that the military industrial complex of the United States is actually helping North Korea to attain this capability. Why? President Obama plans on removing all of the US nuclear capabilities and the MIC is set to lose out on some very lucrative contracts.
Article on Obama's Nuclear Free Vision
"It is our understanding that if the leadership gives consent, the North can detonate a nuclear devise whenever it wants to," a ministry spokesman said.
Unofficial sources hinted that there have been signs that the North is getting ready to test another nuclear weapon at the isolated site in the northeastern part of the country.
“Substantial preparations for the test have been completed," a military official has said in Seoul on Tuesday, Russia’s ITAR-TASS news agency reports. “Only a political decision is needed.”
