I'm not sure if they could start a World War, do they have any allies? I know they have diplomatic relations with China and Russia but both have said they will not ally should war be declared on North Korea...

Forget North Korea they are Just trying to show they can defend themselves and know that had they not got WMDs then they would be taken out/over just as Iraq and Lybia.
Russia will take care of China.
Our threat and by ours I mean Europe Australia USA, is the Muslim threat.
A showdown will come and have to happen whether now or in 10 years or 20 years.
The Koran is a book of peace, but only for Muslims, none Muslims are seen as dirt and this book give any Muslim the right to do anything they want to none Muslims.
There is no tolerance of non Muslims and the book tells them to spread out and take over.
The people know the dangers but Governments continue to let people of this religion flood into our countries.
I don't hate Muslims but non Muslims have to have the right to object to living with people whose only aim is to take over and eradicate non Muslims.
Immigration is fine and its good to expeirence different cultures.
I enjoy having Germans, American Polish, Australian friends I also have many Muslim friends but once a immigrant shouts his mouth off at how evil our society is and would wish us harm,
Then its time for him to go back were he came from.
I am expected to show tolerance to immigrants and rightly so and I should expect the same from the immigrant which does not happen as often as it should and my rights are denied and their protected.
There will be a showdown with the west and this has to happen, North Korea is the least of our problems.

Since you are such a smart individual, how about your break down how many Americans want war, and how many would like peace.
You can round up to the nearest thousand if you like.
A true dumbass makes blanket statements about an entire nation, don't be that guy. (too late)

Your CNN poll is invalid, and not scientific, plus the demographic is BS and you know it is,anything to blame Bush... That should be CNN's motto..
NK is like a 4 foot tall angry man, they keep talking crap, but you know as soon as they step out of line China and Japan will smack them back down (if we dont first)
They are a joke... and should be treated as one

I'm not saying NK couldn't launch a strike against SK, but I don't think it's likely, at least not nuclearly, and I don't think they'd tactically strike the U.S., or any other super power for that matter. Personally, I just think North Korea is flexing its political muscles, just like Iran. Having a nuke in this day and age is like having the required ante to sit at the big boys table.
Kim talks a big game, but I don't think he has the gall to follow through.

You are clearly contradicting yourself. But I can also clearly understand where you coming from.
I would not like to support the idea of destroying North Korea, as there are innocent lives just like you and me who may fall victims as a result of war.
I realize that I am contradicting myself, but it is what it is. I spent 13 years in the military, so I understand what this would involve if done correctly.
