    North Korea prepares for more nuke tests - US main target

    Apparently it's not a surprise to the people that know North Korea, but that they state this so openly is pretty defiant.

    They've done two tests before. But North Korea is a bit like a bad internet meme's, you can't be sure if they're serious or just stupid.

    But I suppose everyone, even China, looks at North Korea like NK is an unruly child. But it might actually be dangerous when you put a nuke in the hands of that child.

    Great, 'cos the US needs more reasons to be even more paranoid and war-hungry.

    Probably also because China is up against the country, so any retaliation would most likely hit them too.

    They say they're trying to make a statement; that they won't be bullied into compliance.
    They didn't say they were literally aiming missiles at the US. Merely that they're purposefully continuing their missile tests in order to piss the US off.

    Which is not actually undeserved, by the way. Stupid, and reckless, and you shouldn't be doing that with nukes anyway, but North Korea is nothing if not stupid and reckless.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    To be fair, most of Europe beats you at Starcraft tournaments as well.

    Did you ever wonder if it's not just the fact that your internet sucks? :P

    Well since most real Tournaments have the contestants in the same place, that isn't really a valid excuse.

    US players are so used to lag that they simply go into shock when they don't have to play with it.

    Also you need to insert the mandatory "Korean gamers don't have fun, its like a military camp they live in training everyday, in America we have fun playing our games. Y so srs?"

    It is when you consider the fact that people on the US ladder train with poor internet.

    So... Where have we gotten from here?
    The US has poor internet. They lose at Starcraft, possibly because of it. So they bully other countries into compliance.
    Meanwhile, South Korea is beating everything apart from Sweden and Romania automatically.
    North Korea will not stand for South Korean supremacy, as we all know.
    So they're starting an arms race with the US, so that the US will increase its technological level and wipe the floor with South Korea in Starcraft!

    YES! That MUST be it! Someone hand me a towel!

    Ironically the US doesn't have poor internet, if you look only at our population centers. If you average the coverage across miles and miles (kilometers and kilometers, since conversions are hard for metric lovers) of little to not populated country, then yes, the internet sucks.

    we are ranked 12th overall even with Alaska having poor internet
    You're a fine example of how gamer communities have become infested with endlessly whining and bitching, arrogant, opinionated, unreasonable, all the way immature, completely delusional, tendentially psychotic, insulting individuals one really doesn't want to be linked with. And playing with you guys is certainly no fun at all. I don't know where this kind of folks spawns from. Must be a nest somewhere ...
    A fine summarization of the community
