    I wouldn't really say that should be true for nations that threaten to use them for out-of-the-blue strikes.

    Did your Great and Fearless Dear Unicorn Dragonborn Leader tell you that? Will he wave his flabby little arms and make the bad guys go away? And if he can do such a great and fearless dear unicorn Dragonborn thing, what does he need nukes for?

    And to even imagine possible case scenarios as you would do while driving to your new date from plentyoffish.com... it's just laughable.

    I don't argue to be right, I argue to be proven wrong. Because I'm aware that the collective intelligence of the community likely has more to offer to me by enlightening me, than I do to an individual by "winning" an argument with them.

    I went to google news just to see if there was any updates on the NK situation and apparently there is this:

    http://www.foxnews.com/world/2013/01...for-nuke-test/

    They are the only news network reporting it sooooo I'm not exactly for sure if this is true or not? You would think with a major development like that more would be reporting it.

    Well, they announced it few days ago, in the news i see only the normal development of the announcement done

    Well I know they did, but apparently those satellite imagines from fox news supposedly reveals that they are actually getting ready to test a nuclear war head. That it wasn't just a bluff like it normally is.

    ---------- Post added 2013-01-26 at 07:21 PM ----------

    I dunno maybe I'm just behind on the news :P Because last time I did check everyone assumed it was just a bluff and them blowing off steam but apparently its not.

    ---------- Post added 2013-01-26 at 07:21 PM ----------

    But I haven't seen anyone else with the satellite imagines just fox news so I'm not sure if it is really happening or not.

    You are most welcome, my good man. I don't believe I've ever been quoted for a sig before, so you've made my day as well.

    That... that was absolutely glorious. It'll be hard to top a video of a nuclear missile launch set to "We Are the World".

    I propose we make a response video of Kim Jong Un being publicly hanged, set to the tune of "Mr. Blue Sky".

    I sure wish some of these armchair experts would take a few modern international economics/international business/comparative politics courses at the university level. China will put the boot down on NK before the U.S. is ever dragged into military action in the defense of SK. China does not want war with the U.S. In fact, the Chinese long-term strategy for global domination is just that -- long-term. They have a 500 year plan in place and it's moving along just like it's supposed to. There's no need or desire for any more World Wars. The cost would be too high to the planet. The future is about peaceful indebtedness and the slow rise of Asia into an extended seat of power.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-21332624 too.

    And i hope you're right about China. Especially since no matter what most of the world says to North Korea about how there will be 'consequences' i believe they don't care and think they're untouchable.

    These threats shouldn't be taken lightly, their leader is just mental enough to actually go through with this. The attack on the world trade center only took two planes, don't shrug it off just because it's a small country.

    I always thought his son was all show. I have a feeling tho it mostly people in the background still pulling for how North Korea acts.

    This infraction comes under "forbidden topics", why exactly did he get infracted, for future reference.

    Also NK wont ever fire a nuke at the US, their leader isnt insane enough to destroy his own country as well.
