    I don't believe we have much to worry about here. That is unless NK is attempting to turn SK to ashes by launching a rocket over the top of SK in hopes that it does the exact same thing as the last one and explodes before it gets too far over SK. At some point they have got to figure it out that they are just plain not very good engineers when it comes to Rocket Science.

    Except that they did torpedo a S. Korean naval vessel two years ago, killing almost 50. And they did shell a S. Korean island.

    And they are going to better perfect their more potent weapons capabilities.

    Just one more foreign policy failure by Obama. Maybe instead of a "beer summit" he should propose a "sake summit" or whatever it is the fat puke drinks.

    Just more sabre rattling for now.

    What has changed from 3 years ago, as someone asked, lets see, the US economy continues to be depressed and sluggish. The US is actually pulling out of Iraq and Afghanistan. The current regime in the US is taking a hard, anti-military stance and promising to butcher US military capabilities to pay for more and more socialisation.

    It makes sense for the new guy in NK to sabre rattle and see what response he gets. I don't think he will attack this year. However, if the US shows weak resolve and BO is re-elected, then the probability of them attacking goes up tremendously for next year. By then, assuming BOs relection, the US will have much less military capability and will still have a weak, gutless socialist coward running the country.

    If Romney is elected, with at least one chamber of congress on his side, then the US leader is less weak, more likely to stop the destruction of military capability and much, much more likely to back SK, up to and including the use of Nukes in retaliation for a Nuke strike from NK.

    It's all one big massive shell game. NK has nothing. They make a lot of noise to distract from the fact that they have nothing.

    Make everybody think they're just crazy enough to maybe do something and people will pay them some attention.

    I say we ignore the hell out of them. Stop responding to their threats and pay more attention to defending our home shores.

    NK is not our fvcking problem.

    We lend credibility to them by reacting to their every fart.

    They're peons.

    NK is just trying to save face following their embarrassing missile test.

    And how is Obama's policy with North Korea different than Bush's?

    Re: Angry North Korea makes startling Threat

    I forgot, but another thing that happened since 3 years ago is that the US Secretary of Defence has publically stated that the current regime would wait for UN approval before actually exercising it's sovereignty or using military force in the future. So if the UN says no, possible since China would have to give permission, then according to Panetta and Obama, the US won't act, that is unless they go against their own stance of asking and receiving permission first.

    As Americans we've been brainwashed for over 5 decades now into thinking NK is the big bad boogyman of the world.
    It's always the fallback, evil empire that we must fear and hate.

    It's always fashionable to hate the NKians.

    And how many Americans did a handful of "towel heads" kill with little more than box cutters?
