Totally agree! There is always one idiot with a bad haircut that is out there threatening world peace.

I was hoping the son would be more of a moderate than the father.

I guess not.

Cool

Not to worry... Their only ally, China, will step in before this gets much farther out of hand. It is far from China's best interest to have a war, especially with the US, so close to their borders within the Korean peninsula ...

Stay tuned....

There is a reason for China being their only ally: Common thinking on wanting the same world-power nation (us) reduced to being impotent and controlled by them.

(NK Leader) was raised in a cacoon of lies and deciet. He has no idea what the rest of the world is REALLY capable of....and all he knows is babble and bluster to get attention.

However if (NK Leader) does just push the button, the life expectancy of N. Korea would be so short he will not know what hit him. Unfortunately as in all wars there would be substantial collatoral damage. The starving population would have another impact on their very sub standard compared to anywhere in the world existence.

With as many public appearances he makes, he is the perfect drone tarhet.

And yes China and others would do what ever it takes to throttle him before he goes to far and potentially inflicts damage to their largest customer....the good old USA.

I agree that they like to beat their chests and say how the little guy can stand up to everyone. I really don't believe it will ever get to the point of pushing the button, too many other nations, including their ally China won't let that happen. Just let them rant all they want and have their moment to appease themselves. What the US needs to do is just LISTEN and not provoke anything. Sending B2 bombers over for "a training maneuver" is just PLAIN STUPID on the military leaders trying to show their power, and typical of the US on taunting. Why?

It is quite curious that we made our stealth bomber unstealthy for the training exercise.

Dictators can find themselves in an "All or Nothing" game.... even internally.

Still, no one can blink or he wins.
