    North Korea threatens Nuclear Test Aimed at US

    North Korea threatens new nuclear test 'aimed' at US - CSMonitor.com

    Two days after the United Nations condemned North Korea with further sanctions for its December rocket launch, the secretive country vowed to respond with a nuclear weapons test aimed at its “enemy,” the United States.

    The United Nations Security Council – including North Korea’s closest ally and biggest trading partner, China – voted unanimously on Tuesday to strengthen sanctions against North Korea for its Dec. 12 long-range rocket launch, which violated previous agreements with the UN.

    When the launch took place last month, North Korea stated its intentions were entirely peaceful, and that it was exercising its “right to use space” for peaceful purposes.

    Today, however, North Korea’s tune seemed to change. "We are not disguising the fact that the various satellites and long-range rockets that we will fire and the high-level nuclear test we will carry out are targeted at the United States," North Korea's National Defense Commission said, Reuters reports, citing the state news agency KCNA.

    North Korea is funny. They launch a missile call it a peaceful rocket launch. Everyone sees the obvious so they get UN sanctions in return for the obvious. Then NK gets mad at everyone for seeing the obvious then they confess that it was indeed a missile test. Then they threaten the US with the same missile program that they were sanctioned for.

    Am I the only one that thinks that the NK government is being ran by morons?

    Where have I heard this before?

    Oh yeah, it seems to happen 2-3 times a year. North Korea's plight for relevance continues to be in vain. China won't allow them to do anything so drastic, and we won't allow it either. I mean how many aircraft carriers and anti-missile sights do we have in the Pacific to make sure they wouldn't get close to our shores?

    North Korea does this because they have learned over the years that sabre rattling is an effective negotiating technique. It's really very simple. They shoot off a missile or conduct a nuclear test, the US along with the UN "condemn" their actions, grandstand for a while, and ultimately agree to give them a bunch of free stuff "not to do it again"... the whole "deal" being mediated by China. They've been playing this same game for decades and we've been willing, to this point, to play along.

    I'm still waiting for the day when they launch one of these missiles and we blow it out of the sky as soon as it exits North Korean airspace. I mean, really, what are they going to do? Threaten to launch another one?

    No, I think that's a pretty popular opinion.

    Maybe what we need to do is get China to put some pressure on NK to change its regime and join the modern world.

    All we'd have to do is refuse to buy any more Chinese made junk until Kim jung Un and his cohorts are thrown on the dustbin of history, and things would change in a hurry.

    Of course, we'd have to convince our own population that we can get along without Chinese made junk for a little while. That would be the hard part.

    Good. We can blow that one out of the sky, too. Hell, we could set up viewing posts all across the Pacific Rim. It would be just like the 4th of July!

    The great part is, sooner or later they would be out of missiles to shoot and we'd still have plenty to spare. Now that's what I call an effective disarmament strategy!

    NK is China's misbehaving dog. if it ever breaks the chain, game over for NK. i don't see China letting them have a nuclear weapon. it would be too bad for business, and China has two goals right now :

    1. to be the premier world superpower

    2. to sell us enough rope that we take ourselves out of the running.

    nuclear war or a global police action in their back yard isn't on China's agenda.
