And now for WW3....Only 65 years ago from WW2. Thank you NK, and thank you China. Hopefully the end result will be a whole Korea under SK government, and some dictator and military folks from NK will be rotting in a dark empty cell somewhere... if their own people don't kill them first.

They can't be that stupid, it would be suicide. Then again, nowadays nothing surprises me anymore.

Let's hope it stays with cyberattacks.

It's amazing how fatty keeps hanging in there.

He's going to have to be dealt with one day...

Why did US fly their stealth fighters over South Korea? Is it done to provoke North Korea? Don't blame North Korea to get to the state of alert in this case. Any nation in place of North Korea would take the same action.

Why didn't US fly its stealth fighters over artificial islands in south China Sea? China is setting up defense bases on this artificial island in international waters.

North Korea is just the bait in the big game of proxy war played by US and China. US and China are just checking each others presence amongst respective allied nations in asia pacific region. These are called classic war games from the cold war era, only its US vs China this time.

The last thing SK wants is for NK to collapse.

Why not just get Micheal Weston and Sam Axe to go into NK and smack that fatty around a bit?

Seriously, though, I am not sure just how many more of these childish little tantrums the west and China will put up with before they finally think it's time to end this before the Fatty Jung Nutter finally goes too far.

I'm not too sure China really wants to stop NK. Just in the news that they are also preparing missiles on their own islands.

Exactly Madverts. All this slapping on "new" sanctions won't do crap. But of course, there are some posters who will argue that war is never the answer. Rely on missile defense systems forever.

Guess where the F-22's came from ? I've been watching them take off / land / and fly the "Pattern" here at Kadena for two weeks...WONDERED where they WENT.

NK preparing attacks?!Am afraid its mere imaginations or more definitely hallucinations,nothing else. Preparing attacks?!they can hardly survive in peace time,how about war?!

Of course S Korea and America have never practiced invading NK...

My, my, my Wc626, how you right-wingers PINE for shock and awe, death by the millions. HAVE YOU EVER stopped to think of the ramifications of another civil war on the Korean Peninsula? Why, first Seoul would be nuclear ash, then the North Korean capital, millions dead in conventional assault weapons as the North Korean army marches south, and tens upon tens of millions fleeing into Japan, to Kitakyushu-city (where I live)--and Fukuoka and Shimonoseki. The population here now is under 1,000,000 but that could go up to 30 million in a month!! Imagine, how that would shut down the entire city, and then Japan trying to absorb and assimilate KOREANS by the tens of millions. And imagine, many of these people have had it nice in Korea, showers, food three times a day, shampoo, etc etc, and now they are reduced to sleeping in the road, and not bathing for weeks. Tensions higher than the sky. Not too mention the world economy in the crapper for around 6 to 10 years.

Agree with TheRat.

It could be a situation way worse than the current situation in Europe.

I can't speak for Wc but I think it's fair to say that appeasing fatty hasn't worked. His nuclear ambitions are clear. As is his belligerence towards the entire world. Perhaps not taking fatty out may mean much bigger "shock and awe". Deaths by the hundreds of millions.

One thing I do know is the radical left's stance of singing kumbaya and screaming at America hasn't worked at countering the fat nutter running NK.

There you go Madverts. You're making sense in this thread. Appeasing the aggressor only make him more aggressive.

HAVE YOU EVER stopped to think of the ramifications of another civil war on the Korean Peninsula?

(and) HAVE YOU EVER stopped to think of what would happen if one of fat boy's Rodong missile's scored a direct hit on Tokyo, Seoul or Seattle?? All because the free world did absolutely nothing.

Heh, dude - I always make sense.

If only that idiot W Bush hadn't screwed us all taking the threat of force off the table with his pre-emptive strike for dollars.

That my friend is why Russia and NK are laughing at us all. Nothing to do with my man O.

Okay, fair enough.

He's going to have to be dealt with one day...

Yeah. And not by ridiculing the regime with movies like, "The Interview." Not by slapping "new" sanctions either cause they never work. Not by appeasing him.

If only the chinese & russians could seriously bring fat boy into an intervention.

Depends on where you live, your education, career, the car you drive, and your lifestyle. Most folk "I" know are doin' mighty fine on both sides of the pond. Healthcare is good too. Its just a pity when "others" try to rob u blind-

False. If sanctions "never" worked, then Doughboy would never care what the rest of the world did about his regime. Despite the existing sanctions, NK was heavily dependent on the little trade that DID make it into the country. Tighter sanctions are going to hurt and Kim Jong Poppin'Fresh knows it. That's why he's reacting.

If North Korea collapses, you know there is going to be a major land grab by both China, Japan and S. Korea. They want those rare minerals/land! Pronto.

Technically, I'm sure this is true. The North is always preparing attackes against the south, just as the south is always preparing war against the north, just as Japan and the US are always preparing against the North, and CHina, and Russia, and so on and so forth.,

That is what nations do. They prepare for war.

Is it near Kim's birthday? If so, just send Dennis Rodman over to sing him a birthday tune and all things will settle down.

Just nuke them and be done with it

LoL, fatty invited Micheal Jordan originally, but MJ said, "Hell No." Got the flamboyant D. Rodman instead.

Another garbage article from the "Warmongers" in the West. Fatboy knows exactly what he needs to do to avoid an attack by the US or one its proxies. He knows what happened in the Middle East to countries that had done absolutely nothing to the US. He is building his defensive capabilities.

Last time I checked NK hasn't attacked any sovereign state, can you say the same about the biggest criminal in the world? How many millions of people have died directly or indirectly, because of the US since 1945?

NK will never attack anyone, it would be a suicide mission, Fatboy wants nothing more than staying alive and in power. Idiotic propaganda from the West.

Agree...but your comment is too logical and makes too much sense. Not good biz for the media.
