I'm sure that you have all heard the recent news of North Korea's third nuclear test in defiance of warnings from the United States and the UN.

You may also remember North Korea's strange propaganda video that depicts an American city being destroyed in an apparent nuclear attack allegedly by North Korea.

In apposition, we are now always constantly hearing threats from North Korea against the United States and abuse being hurled against the United States from Pyongyang, especially concerning the destruction of America by North Korea.

But the thing is, can we not see the parallels with Iran and Israel. Iran - or rather Ahmadinejad and the Ayatollah - are allegedly to have constantly called for the destruction of Israel and the wiping of it off of the map. North Korea also says similar things against the United States. But the thing is, when Iran is alleged to have uttered such things against Israel, there is uproar, especially from the United States. But when North Korea, which is potentially capable of actually firing long-range missiles (that satellite was just really a test and they're clearly nuclear-capable) and says similar things against the United States, America doesn't seem to make much sound about it.

TL;DR - In short, what I am trying to say is that, at the current moment, North Korea seems highly capable of attacking America and yet we believe that Iran is the big threat? Surely North Korea, especially in light of their recent nuclear test, is the most dangerous - and a dangerous direct threat to the United States, let alone Iran (which is really more a threat to Israel than the United States).

What do you guys think?

EDIT:

On the other hand, there is suggestion from some that North Korea is merely diverting attention from Iran's own shady activities (presumably in agreement to do so) by conducting tests of its own and drawing the attention of the US and the UN away from Iran...?

Those are 2 of the 3 boogymen today. Don't forget Syria. The one thing I think they have in common is that both Iran and NK got some mouths and no REAL power. Iran isn't going to attack Israel and NK might like to hit the US but just don't see either the capability or the suicide wish.

I wouldn't say north korea is more dangerous. In a event of a war between north korea and US(and it's allies) i am sure most of the north korean population would defect to south korea or rebel against the north korea government. However in an event of a war between israel and iran it would actually be a 3 way war between jews(israel), sunnis(sunni population in iran) and shias(iran) or maybe even 4 way if we include the kurds.
