    Well crap, I guess they know that the impotent west won’t do anything to stop their progress in obtaining an intercontinental capable nuclear force. Wait – let’s draw redlines and bring ‘fire and fury’ upon them! Ya, that’s the ticket!

    • Maurice Miner

      Yeah, but it forces President Trump into a position where he either capitulates with tail between legs (like Obama), or otherwise presses the Big Red Button.

      Can you think of any other options?

        Yes, deploy graphite cluster bombs over the transformer stations.

        A large crater where pyongyang used to be could be a great tourism spot. Just like the one in Arizona.

      Maybe they are waiting until San Francisco is hit. Two birds….

    Not to worry. China owns NoKo.
    China is heading toward an economic contraction. Add to that the numerous upcoming Trump economic sanctions and you have China freaking out.
    All that ground trembling in NoKo is China trembling.
    The ground will settle, China will come to its senses and get rid of NoKo nukes.
    Relax, Trump has this.

    They call that haircut the H-Bomb.

  • Worrisome. If true, the US needs to go in NK now and effect a regime change by force of arms. If it continues to remain passive militarily, the US might well have one of its cities nuked by crazy NK very soon.

      I think the American military probably has multiple plans in place that could be activated in minutes if they had to. They likely range from striking NoKo with sub launched nuclear missiles, to airstrikes with B1, B2, B52, F117 etc that could take out their critical infrastructure overnight to regime change. It is worrying, but I suspect plans are in place. They won’t, hopefully be caught with their pants down like they were in 1950.

        But not if the deepstate types interfere… That’s where I’m worried.

    The North Korean military has the dumbest looking hats.

    • canminuteman

      Ha!,, I agree, but as someone who had to wear a beret for going on twenty years, I think berets are pretty dumb looking hats too. During the first world war the nascent British tank corp was in need of a hat that would work while working in and around armoured vehicles and some officer came up with the idea of the beret. As an old armoured corp zipperhead myself I was quite proud of my black beret and it is indeed a useful hat to wear in a tank if you must wear a hat, but other than as a fashion statement it is totally useless. It doesn’t keep the rain and sun off your head or shade your eyes or keep you warm. A hat that was fashionable for French school girls in the early twentieth century was adopted by the British Tank Corps and a century later it is the height of military fashion the world over, despite being kinda dumb looking and totally useless.

    If North Korea keeps at this pace of constant missile, nuclear testing they may end up really screwing ups and cause mass devastation upon themselves.

      And hilarity would result!

      Meanwhile, back at pyongyang HQ – Hey guys! Hold my kimchi and watch this!
