    N. Korea threatens strikes on us amid hacking claims

    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- President Barack Obama is "recklessly" spreading rumors of a Pyongyang-orchestrated cyberattack of Sony Pictures, North Korea says, as it warns of strikes against the White House, Pentagon and "the whole U.S. mainland, that cesspool of terrorism."

    Just what happens with a weak POTUS. Noko can read Obama like an open book.

    North Korea has made threats to America and other countries for just about everything. I'm not the least bit surprised by this.

    We'll be swimming in our own blood.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    What we really need like a hole in the head is a full fledged war on China's boarder. I hope that China thinks that way too.

    North Korea threatens US, otherwise known in NK as a Monday morning.

    Why be surprised? You are right. Noko is a rogue state and they have proven it over and over. But the Chinese like it that way or are at lest not willing to stop it. The question is what to do about it.

    The Chinese are as unhappy with the North Koreans as the US is.

    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.

    If China wanted to reign them in, I think they would have. I think they are like the dog the sic on us, and now is perfect timing. There was talk about restricting financial access through China which is one of their few sources of hard currency but I think China enjoys watching this.
