    China is behind all of it, IMO. Side-tracking the US from paying attention to them as much as possible.

    The main reason I find it hard to be afraid of North Korea is that they just seem so laughably incompetent. It's actually kind of cute.

    Plus if they nuke anything it will be the west coast, and I think we can all agree fuck those guys.

    You can say that now, but not when all the water and air in the US is polluted with Nuclear Radiation.

    We get our water from the Cuyahoga, so it shouldn't be infected with nuclear radiation....just feces and industrial byproducts. nbd.

    I'm actually more "afraid" of North Korea than Iran, when it comes to nuclear weaponry.

    I think I've watched Mad Max enough to know that a dystopian wasteland future would be awesome.

    I don't understand N Korea's plan here. Say they are able to get a launch or 2 off before the US reacts. They end up destroying major areas of the us like LA or SF. That's terrible and all but the US's response would be absolute annihilation of N Korea. The country is about the size of Utah. We would launch a few ICBMs at them and South Korea becomes an island instead of the tip of a peninsula. What is their end game? They want to die?

    The problem is nuking them has far reaching consequences. It would piss off China, not because of their caretaker stance towards North Korea, but because of the nuclear fallout that will surely hit China and our ally in South Korea. This isn't like nuking Russia where you can just carpet bomb the place with nukes. Really I don't think they'll ever launch nuclear weapons at the U.S. All they want is power over their people, and nothing unites people like a big enemy.

    If we weren't starving them out they probably wouldn't be so hostile, don't you think? Of course, if they get a delivery system for a nuclear weapon, they probably figure we will stop starving them out.

    Yeah, because that's just what China wants: for North Korea to nuke the country that owes them trillions of dollars before they can collect on any of the debt. For various reasons the success of China's economy is directly tied to the success of the US economy, and it will be this way for the foreseeable future. The last thing China wants is for the US economy to collapse... and that's just what would happen if Long Duc Dong (or whatever the hell his name is) starts dropping nukes on US soil.

    Which is exactly why China actually approved of the sanctions or whatever the UN put on them on Tuesday.

    If our country goes extinct, China won't have anyone to buy their cheap shit and their economy will collapse overnight.

    If our country went extinct the Chinese RMB would soar in value, domestic prices in China would plummet, and they would have 1.5 billion new consumers for their cheap shit.
