Indeed. It served as a warning.

I suspect it was stealthy during the mission to make sure it worked out.

The unstealthy part was probably just a press release.

As another poster said...keep your eyes on Iran. They, along with Russia could possibly our biggest concern actually. N.K---well unless they get some allies not sure they're a force to be reckened with.

BUT anyone with nuclear capabilities are to be watched.

Including our OWN government, never again shall we allow ourselves to be steamrolled into a war.

South Korea has a new president. Each of the new presidents over the past few decades has been greeted with some act of aggression by the north. Each has been dealt with by the south. They will probably fire a few rockets somewhere or sink a South Korean ship and the south will respond and it will be over with.
As far a Gracie's article, I like to know who the "US Official" is who says they are not a paper tiger.
The last time North Korea tried to send up a rocket, they almost blew themselves up.

I believe the real danger in NK or Iran having nukes is that they will sell them to terrorist. Neither NK or Iran are nuts enough to launch one at the US no matter what they say.

Nothing new here as you said. Most people are not aware that the war between the north and South Koreans never ended. Just saber rattling by an insecure little man.
