Looks like it's Game On. Been confirmed by intel svcs that they can hit Alaska with version of the tested missile. The timing is a clear middle finger at USA.

I think it's folly to hope China helps out...they may even be encouraging fat boy (secretly).
This is a mess inherited by the current administration but I don't think it will be passed on to the next one....

If we did not have troops there this would not have happened. We should have pulled out 20 years ago.

Yes, clearly a middle finger. I fear military action is inevitably approaching soon.
Every administration adopts [censored] from a previous one, that's water under the bridge.

Do you think South Korea would still exist if we left there in 1997?

So 20yrs ago would have been alright for the slaughter of all South Korea???

Remember....there are U.S. subs out there just waiting for the order. Of all the crazy bad leaders, this one needs to exit earth shortly.

I think it doesn't matter at this point. Hindsight 20/20, and all that jazz.

Hopefully cooler heads will prevail, and we don't send off this generations sons and daughters off to die in another Korean conflict. We don't properly care for the current Korean War Veterans we have, we don't need more.

From what we understand, there is no "cooler head" in NK.

They're welcome to land it in my backyard if they want to. Would solve all my problems.

paper tiger, correct.

"People in the know" report NK's greatest fear is what happened in Libya; countries strike a deal for "no nukes" and then conveniently forget the deal and overthrow the regime.

Another blowback in the making. China is in no way enthusiastic about participating in a US policy win on the world stage

The only thing the US has been successful in doing the last 17 years on the world stage is creating refugee crises and then villyfing those trying to escape them.

Well, lets see how long this thread lasts before the bitog moderators declare it "political" and delete it.
Yet, this is probably the one political topic everyone should be on the same side of.
Who would side with the nutjobs in N.Korea?

Keep in mind we and the Japanese have THAAD, Aegis, and now a ballistic missile defense off the coast of California.

Interestingly, from what I just read, it was done on July 3, the 106th anniversary of the founding of the DPRK.

So perhaps less of a thumb at us, and more as a little hooray of their own?
