    Do you guys even try to make sense anymore?

    I seem to recall a number of threats during the previous administration as well.

    Has Obama responded to this yet? What if it was the Pentagon they hacked into? Or our electrical grid? I sure hope there is something going on behind the scenes that will make them think twice about attacking our networks again. I just don't think anything will be done.

    North Korea is threatening the US with war... I'm shocked. Also in the news, gravity still works.

    But the reason China tentatively supports NK is two fold.

    1) China doesn't want an American ally on its border if Korea reunified through the South.

    2) the refugee crisis should the North collapse from the inside would be very expensive for China.

    I know it may not seem like it most of the time, but China is as fed up with Pyongyangs antics as anyone and if NK does another nuclear test you'll see Jinping take a very hard line with them.
    Thing is that "fed up" is not enough and teaching NK that threats pay is ultra expensive in the future.

    Thing is... how do you do it?

    North Korea is always technically an imminent threat.

    Trust me, you'd rather have us being the ones with the cool heads than challenging them to a show down in which can only end in bloodshed.

    What we do know about the North Korean leadership... and especially these days is its not as stable as it may appear which is why Kim Jong Un executed his own uncle and sunk a South Korean ship to assert his authority...

    A full blown challenge to North Korea from any party could lead to outright war because Un would HAVE to display he would not tolerate such an insult which would cause the deaths of millions and level Seoul...

    Over a hack.

    That's a big price to pay.

    It does not really make any difference why they are neglecting their policing duties. The only important thing is that they are and we cannot let it stand this way with NK. We should run it by the UN. Going it alone is expensive but might be necessary.
