    It's easy to be flippant about it, but the fact remains that north Korea is a threat to its neighbor, and in my opinion if they feel backed into a corner, they could do something like that. My opinion for a long time is if they could find a way to reunify with the south while saving face, they'd do it. If they can't, then in their death throes they may try to do as much damage to the south as they can.

    Trying not to be flippant, but I believe that there is something they can do, if they feel backed into a corner, and that is die.

    Sure, but the question is how many South Koreans and Americans are they going to take with them?

    Right on.

    Fear, feeling helpless can be as dangerous as arrogance, and over confidence.

    In this case we also have to always keep mind that Kim was no elected to his position and his I.Q. has been in question from the start.

    Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.

    Yea we should ignore threats from crazy people.

    We know that normal people would never risk annihilation but Kim Jong is not a normal person and neither is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Kim may be terminally ill and Ahmadinejad has a religious death wish.

    Crude is under estimating the danger in deal with kooks like these two or radical idiots like we have at the helm now who don't know one damn thing about how to deal with other Countries as Obama showed when insulted Benjamin Netanyahu .
    I never said ignore it. North Korean aircraft would never make it far enough to drop a bomb. The border is guarded by modern anti-aircraft equipment and fighters, and the North Korean Air Force is fielding the same jets they did when the war was still hot... only now they're 40 years old and falling apart.

    Fatman and Little Boy would not fit in an artillery tube, and even if you built a big one, the firing would damage the warhead beyond use. Miniaturizing nuclear weapons is tough, it'll take them a while to figure it out. They've only recently managed their first real nuclear detonation. (the first one fizzled out it seems, the explosion measured was so weak that conventional explosives could have duplicated it)

    it appears, from the location of the sinking, the locus of the explosion on the ship, the confirmed shooting before the incident, and the report from witnesses on yeonpyeong of gunfire ten minutes after the cheonan went under, that the ship was likely torpedoed by kim

    kim's 1.2 million man inmun gun is the 4th largest active military on earth

    if the perverted little madman ever decided to swarm the parallel, there is precious little to slow him down, let alone stop him, beyond american PRESTIGE, american WILL and the THREAT of the big one

    no one this side of douglas macarthur seriously considers that third, dire impediment

    obama has no WILL

    and the prestige of united states might is openly thwarted from gaza to waziristan to beijing to ciudad juarez

    it is what it is

    Maybe in Tom Clancy's fevered imagination, but not in real life. It wouldn't make much sense to kill off the people with whom you trade the most and whose debt you own a ton of.
