I personally doubt there'd be any true occupation. I feel like NK would be much more difficult and costly to occupy and, as a result, the US would avoid it completely

I've seen a number of videos of him or that woman in the past few weeks. Theyve usually been embedded in news clips on certain news sites. Unfortunately, I do not speak Korean so I do not know what they said; however, I feel that since the videos were accessible to millions of people, many of which could indeed speak Korean, the news site translations are correct.

Ah OK, yeah I'd expect someone would have picked up on it if it was lies then.

I'm not persuaded the Chinese would react all that strongly to US troops occupying North Korea, especially since reunification would remove the need for any more US soldiers on the peninsula at all.

The Chinese have to know the US is not going to attack them.  More likely if things got really bad would be joint US-Chinese occupation.  I'm sure the planners (they plan for everything) have it all worked out.

That must have been the way the Russians and the Germans felt when they invaded Poland in 1939.

Out of curiosity... Has anyone seen an actual video or anything like that of him actually saying he will fire a nuke at the US? Cause I just realized I haven't. All this is coming from the media and US officials isn't it?

You can't blame me for asking after Bush, Blair and countless US officials and the media ll saying Saddam had WMD's..... Which turned out to be a huge scam to invade Iraq...
The news comes from the states owned news channel and websites, like with all communist countries the military is in control of what goes out.
Though we have seen NK rallies of death to America and German shepards used as scare tactics

From what I read North Korea launched a Satellite into space back in December and it was carrying an unknown payload, it's supposed to be over the US today. Not 100% sure how much truth is in this. Anyone got more info ion it?





That's the scary thing.

This has the potential to be WW3.

To be honest the potential for WW3 does not exist,the whole situation is being ramped up by the Media and I have a feeling that behind the Scenes Beijing will be putting their foot down shortly.

Seem's like a potentially bad and escalating situation.

However, I wonder if China and Russia can get diplomatically involved, perhaps this whole hell can end peacefully.

Still, there's the issue of NK making more nukes, and extorting aid from other countries... I don't know.

I think that's one of the biggest reasons why North Korea is still around. No one, not China, not South Korea, and not the US, wants to deal with millions of brainwashed and starving North Koreans.

Well China has been rather vocal in telling NK to calm down compared to past points of "crisis". The only thing with Russia I've heard about is them ignoring NK's suggestiong to withdraw their ambassador to safety. Know Castro has come out and told Kim he's acting like a moron. On the national stage I don't think anyone is giving NK much support. I wouldn't be surprised if China put their foot down if things don't cool off quickly. I think they're hoping that the birthday celebrations that will be taking place will distract NK enough that some form of stability can return to the region...until the next time NK flips out of course.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

How can they be so sure when in the missle defence tests, there was only one hit out of four. How do they know that one missle that  North Korea sets off  does nt have a nuclear device on it?

When it comes to NK missile tech, the safest place to be is in the target zone.

He's only threatening nuke strikes because the US is flexing their muscles.

The US wants that area so badly. Lovely spot right on the Chinese border for some Airfields.
yes, of course, they're just itching to launch strikes on China, aren't they.
In any case, wouldn't the existing bases in S. Korea do just as well, if they ever were insane enough to want to do that? A B-2 could reach China just as well from there.
