Korean war started a long time ago, and the CCP was backing N.Korea.

I've been hoping for Nork's regime to be over for a long time. But my concern is that Trump is too arrogant and stupid to use an effective strategy before and after.

The question of removing NK, and trying to unify Korea is does the CCP/and or Russia intend to just make sure NK refugee's don't try to escape into their countries, or are they intending to try and take control of NK, during the instability that follows?

Personally, if Korea get's properly unified under SK's government, Korea could very much become a great economic trading partner for both China and maybe (down the line) Russia... in which case they should invest more in assisting in rebuilding Korea's northern side.... but if either chooses to invade with intent to control, then money and lives will be lost because Korean's don't like people trying to take over their country.

Just my perception and understanding of reality and human nature.

You can not strike an aircraft of U.S when there is no U.S. aircraft around your cornertaps the head.

When is the World going to put this "misfit" in a Card Board Box and bury him?

Trump has not anything that grave yet to be calling him a misfit. His decisions to pressure NK with a hard power are simply manifestations of circumstances american society was in for 200 years.

"Our revolutionary forces are combat-ready to sink a U.S. nuclear powered aircraft carrier with a single strike,"

Well before you do, feel free to let us know if you have any final requests or business for us to take care of after you are turned into glass.

Gump had it right, "Stupid is as stupid does." Why doesn't the USA and Japanese media just say, "NK threatens to strike again?" Don't give details and move on to something else. Kim does operate on the idea that bad publicity is better than no publicity. NK took another American as hostage. Who cares? The Gump rule fits them, too. Don't go there unless you are willing to pay the price. The latest hostage can't find a job in the other 194-195 countries in the world? He will have plenty of time to "count the beans" in NK.

If NK took a first shot at a US vessel, they would be leveled to dust in seconds. Iraq never took a first shot at the US, neither did anyone in the Korean war. The US went half-effort on both of these.

If one of our ships was fired at I guarantee we would be 100% in it and would flatten that country to bits. In seconds... With the full support of the world, the UN and everyone who thinks with a brain (obviously Russia and China are not included)

Probably the one in the North.

The big bad mouth fatboy Kim Jong-un has only couples of primitive Submarines. How can he sink modern aircraft carrier with his primitive Submarine and its Torpedoes? I won't be surprised if US has dropped 30,000 pound bunker buster bomb on him because of his bad loud mouth. I believe the large Missiles show on N. Korean Military parade was all dummies Missiles. One day, his bad loud mouth will kill him.

He doesn't actually specify which nuclear aircraft carrier he is threatening. (Could be the one in his Jacuzzi.) The Norks used a special bubble jet heavy torpedo to sink a SK corvette about 7 years ago. Maybe the US should be checking around the hull of their Japan-based carrier, among others.

So the US is planning to sink its aircraft carrier in order to gain public support and justify invading NK, just like they did with Vietnam, Iraq, Libya, Syria, etc etc.....

We are no longer falling for this western propaganda anymore.

Nobody knows where the USS Vinson is? A stealth aircraft carrier. Who would have guessed that was possible? NASA is sponsoring a search for new planets. Free, no prize, search for the aircraft carrier from satellite images. Does "military intelligence" really believe nobody (China, Japan, SK and NK) have no idea?

Somebody is itching for war.

EUREKA! It is south of the Tohara Strait, which is between Okinawa and the Japanese main islands in the Philippine Sea.
