South Korean and US troops began naval drills on Monday in a show of force partly directed at North Korea amid signs that Pyongyang will soon carry out a threat to conduct its third atomic test. The region is also seeing a boost in diplomatic activity focused on North Korea's announcement last month that it will conduct a nuclear test to protest international sanctions toughened over Pyongyang's long-range rocket launch in December.
Pyongyang's two previous nuclear tests, in 2006 and 2009, both occurred after it was slapped with increased sanctions for similar rocket launches. The US,

The North Korean leaders are power tripping and they are going to get their brainwashed people killed. The sad part is, like I said, those people would only fight because they are brainwashed.
We can not just let NK have nukes with long range capability. Sh*t they shouldn't even have nukes. We should fight an air war with them. No boots on the ground. We can take out their SAMS more than one way without having any ground units.
Just wipe out their air force, bomb their facilities, and refuse to leave their skies until all of our demands have been met. I do not trust them, and our air force could use the practice. EMP/SOF can handle any ground work that would be necessary after a few bombing runs. There would probably be a few key things we would need to steal to make sure their progress is set back a bit.
Seriously, we can't afford to let them get long range nuclear capability - they are insane!
I wouldn't take it so lightly. The first two weren't just attempts they were successful. I actually thought this would be their fourth nuke
They are making working nukes, sure their rockets may not be capable of delivering a warhead, but as it stands they would be capable of dropping one out of a plane, or smuggling it in somewhere.
Not to mention they could sell a nuke to any terrorist org they wanted to, Then there is the fact they are working with Iran (several NK workers were killed the other day in the Iranian nuke facility blast) so they may have help in turning their bombs into smaller warheads.
Then it's just a matter of getting rockets from China or Iran. Then they wont have to worry about if their rockets work.
Also I often wonder if the western world isn't lying about their rocket capabilities. For example, how we recently knocked their launch only to find out they successfully put a satellite in orbit. Sure everyone laughed and said "oh it's unstable" but was it really? I personally just have a hard time believing they are so good at making nuclear bombs, but so bad at making rockets.
