    But... the U.S is a sworn enemy of North Korea.

    From their perspective, this move is not "disappointing" at all.

    I'm not happy about it either, sending our armed forces out there in the middle east to defend our country is wonderful but sad at the same time when you see the ones that come back with wounds, paralyzed, disfigured and with ptsd...

    First they have to be successful developing an actual nuke and the way things are going, that's a long way off.

    Guys, calm down. There is going to be no war with North Korea.

    North Korea is insane, sure, but they're not stupid. They know that while they could level some serious damage against South Korea, they'd have no chance of winning an actual war with the United States. If they attacked us (nuclear weapon or otherwise) and we retaliated, even China (their only ally at this point, and it's a damn tenuous alliance) would likely stay out of it.

    What we're seeing here is little more than saber rattling. They act belligerent on the world stage, intimidating everyone as best they can, and then call it a day, patting themselves on the back a little. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    North Korea is basically exactly where it wants to be right now - its people may be starving, but the leaders are wealthy enough for their own tastes. China reluctantly backs them up because it creates distance between them and the US-friendly South Korea. The rest of the world can't do anything because if anyone were to try, much of South Korea would be devastated by vicious artillery bombings - and there's always the remote threat of China getting dragged into the whole mess at the back of everyone's mind. They're not going to make any serious moves that would threaten this delicate balance.

    Ignore the sensationalist headlines. North Korea desperately wants attention now - don't give them the validation. Keep calm. We're not going to war.

    Indeed it is wonderful to watch US troops murder hundreds of innocent people over WMDs that don't exist.

    I say publicly denounce North Korea as "a warmongering menace to the world" but start researching those Giant Death Robots just in case.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    The world should detach from negotiations with North Korea, isolate them financially, and not give them food or fuel aid, then tell the Chinese they're you fucking problem now. Then if the North Koreans still want to start a war that's fine they will cease to exist

    I agree, innocent people should die because their leaders are insane.
    Good logic bro.

    Along with the above, you also have to account for suicidal war: if the country feels threatened and its leaders with enough power, prepare to see everything burn to ash if they're going down.

    People learn stupid thing; the next thing to do is not to disregard them, but keep the stupidity from igniting into fiery destruction. For all things.

    Good luck shooting a missile half way around the world with that North Korean tech.

    Pretty shitty situation for South Korea but I think they realize if they attack that they'd get stomped by probably everyone else in the world.

    More than likely there will be no WW3 because it will be the end of the world. Nuclear bombs flying everywhere, we're all dead.

    Ever think North Korea is just acting up so that they will receive more of the humanitarian aid they need?

    I don't really think the're in a position to actually engage The United States, that's pretty much suicide.

    Y'all are forgetting the North Korean leader is insane. You can't negotiate with people like that theres no coming to terms or peace offers. North Korea knows they will parish in a war with the USA but they will go out killing as many Americans as possible. So i think this is something to worry about not just for Americans but Canadians as well 90% of are population is on the US border, o ya and i guess Mexico to.
