Kerry, So. Korea FM hold joint media availability LIVE VIDEO — Secretary of State John Kerry holds a media availability with the Republic of Korea’s Foreign Minister Yun Byung-Se.

Nothing to report other than US/SK are going to address the North Korean threats. Most recently, it appears NK is fueling a long range rocket and this might be the last move they make before an all out war begins.

I will update this thread with comments and updates!

Serious nature of security situation on the peninsula

Credible and robust deterrents on the peninsula.

Noth Korea should abandon nuclear ambitions, and belicose rhetoric

nothing new here, yet... Just saying they will resign the nuclear agreement and hopes Pyongang will not push any further.

Kerry earlier mentioned that both us (USA) and them (South Korea) agree on a peaceful and *NUCLEAR FREE* Korean peninsula.. I now wonder if this is why the North is talking about keeping their nukes and threatening to use them. I'm guessing a lot of pressure has been put on NK behind the scenes in this regard.

"If they restart Nuclear Plant in Ro-Dong then that's IN DIRECT VIOLATION of their UN Agreement".

Yet, he didn't follow up with an "and" or "but".

North Korea is is so full of crap.

Just a game to make Kim Jong Un look good in the eyes of his people.

To the rest of the world he is a little dog. All bark, no bite.

I just love politicians and the rubbish they spout. The strongest alliance in history is the UK Portugal alliance. That has not lasted for 60 years , but for over 600 years.

NK test fired and sent “something” in orbit a few months ago. There is meaning to that launch. The cheapest way and most effective way to bring down the USA is to detonate an EMP 300 miles over the center of USA. It would be lights out!

NK also test fired some nukes underground. They were deemed a fail because they had a low yield. The fact is, a low yield tuned to release more gamma rays is all that is need to put the USA under.

only takes one A-bomb from space!

With talks of Iran say, the USA is finished in 2013... makes you go hummmmmm.

You may be right, but don't you think that America has a similar program with far better detection methods.
If the Little Fat One actually put something into orbit, it's track has already been established and the US military machine will be waiting for a chance to destroy it, and return the favor at the same time.

it says there fueling a long range rocket. sounds like just one to me. maybe its another space rocket that could carry such a device.

If he was going to strick america directly wouldnt he be fueling many rockets right now?

Im just saying, with limited resources, the ability to build small nukes and get them in space. Wouldn’t that be on your opening attack move? orbital EMP?

But you can also add to that, the US French alliance which is the most valuable. Not to mention the "alliance / special relationship" between the UK/US. somewhat tarnished of recent, but still goes back to before the first world war. and arguable to the first US civil war (war of independence).

So all in all, a lot of polit-speak

Having paid attention to what all is going on in the world, there are a few questions that are not answered and all of the worlds attention is drawn away.

The first question is what is Iran doing, while the entire world is focused on NK? After all they are allies, and it seems like every time one wants a bit of privacy the other makes a noise to distract and draw the attention of the world away from the other. So between the NK and Venezeula, what is Iran up to?

The other question is what is going to be China's response? So far China is amassing troops and military personell on the boarder with North Korea, the question should be are they preparing to back NK up militarily, or are they going to be there as to prevent something that they can not and do not want, that being a massive influx of refugees going north to escape the violence of warfare?

North Korea is an isolated country, they have very few allies and ultimately have an economy that is in ruins, and has been that way since the end of the Korean Conflict. There was never any official peace accord signed and that ultimately is the real shame of it all, that they did not take the time to hammer out a lasting peace. Neither side wants a war, yet it is apparently moving towards that direction.

Right now we can only wait and watch, to determine what all is going to happen, and if the new leader of NK, will let wisdom and diplomats prevail on what all they need to do to prevent conflict or ultimately lead into another conflict that would be lose/lose on all sides.

While NK has nuclear capacity, the problem is that if such an attack were to hit say the USA, then it would have to deal with the concept that the USA could retaliate and return the favore, and there would not be much that anyone could do to stop such.

While it may seem funny, the country to feel ultimately sorry for is China. They are caught in the middle of this, having to back up NK, while at the same time, double step to try to find a solution that satisfies the USA, as it can not afford to have the country whose debt it holds getting nuked, as it would lose economically.

With all the threats he has thrown out there they have left us in a position where we have to destroy it if it is launched. Not sure where that takes us...

I am at a loss with how a peaceful state will be achieved when such a hardline approach to the nuclear issue continues to break down discussions and any chance of better relations. There are a lot of hard issues that need to be addressed and while everyone is busy sulking over one of them, progress grinds to a stop. There has been a lot of work going on in the background to prepare each nation for integration with reunification, but still more remains.

The nuclear issue is a tough one with the security very much at the core. When faced with tough problems it is better to start with a smaller aspect of it than continue to sit and stare at the too hard basket. North Korea has very much been made a target by the US with it's 'axis of evil' plans and it rightly worried and concerned. South Korea has a much larger population and very likely hold the balance of power in a reunified Korea. The decommissioning of nuclear weapons is something all nations should be working towards, but until better relations, trade and trust can be established it is just something we have to live with.
