    North Korean Nuclear Crisis explained through WoW

    Been keeping up to date? See:

    "In December, North Korea launched a long-range rocket, which Washington and its allies took as a provocation.
    In February, Pyongyang tested a nuclear charge, triggering international outrage, including from allies Russia and China. The United Nations increased sanctions against North Korea as a result.
    South Korea reacted with emergency military drills, demonstrating cutting-edge, pinpoint weaponry. Annual joint drills between the U.S. and South Korea followed in March."




    "New reports of missile movements in North Korea have triggered military counteractions by South Korea and the United States.
    A U.S. official told CNN that two medium-range missiles have been loaded onto mobile launchers on the east coast of North Korea, but a second U.S. official said intelligence on that is not definitive.
    South Korea's semiofficial Yonhap news agency reported the missiles were ready to launch, citing military sources in Seoul. They are probably Musudan missiles, U.S. officials said. They would have a 2,500-mile range and could threaten South Korea, Japan and Southeast Asia."


    http://edition.cnn.com/2013/04/06/wo...ons/index.html

    "AS diplomats ponder whether to evacuate North Korea, growing dissent has emerged among defence analysts - with some now insisting the rogue state may actually have the know-how to fire a nuclear missile."

    What I find strange though is that tourism seems to be flowing in and out like everything's fine.
    Are we that skeptical? This whole ordeal will likely not end in nuclear armageddon, but it's not outside the realm of possibility that N. Korea will start take aggressive measures to prove their intentions. Wars have been started over less.

    Blizzard are the ones controlling NK from the shadows.

    This kinda falls apart when they try and bring iraq into it.

    N.K has nothing and has always had EVERYTHING given to them through tantrums. It's not working anymore so they are turning up the tantrum.

    have to admit, actually made me smile, though your version of events is extremely pro-western and makes a fair bit of assumptions that might or might not be true

    I laughed, which is both great and disturbing (considering the subject).

    However, a good video.

    The weird thing is they haven't asked for anything yet this time around.... Usually such threats were followed up with 'we'll stop our nuclear programme if you give us food/oil/money/whatever', but since Kim-Jong Un took over it's 'our nuclear programme is non-negotiable'.



    Other than that, this video is brilliant and a completely accurate representation of the situation on Azeroth.

    Save Orgrimmar!

    I'm not sure it's pro-anything. All sides have some guilt, but you can't ignore the fact that N. Korea is threatening to ATTACK with nukes, not defending themselves with them.

    Garrosh = Un.


    Good match, actually.
    Permanently unsubscribed as of 03/10/2014.

    Been a fun run guys, but the game's officially moved into the "Milk the Playerbase" phase. And I for one don't intend to stick around as the cost of expansions go up, content in them goes down, and raids become further and further apart.
    Maybe I'll be back for WoW2, but probably not. - Slowpoke, the former Dokhidamo

    Well this is interesting. ;o Been mostly keeping up to date with it, but this is an entertaining interpretation of it!
    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.

    It's like a kid trying to get his parents attention by waving scissors everywhere.

    I always thought I'd be a better kid if I'd just had a couple of warheads laying around. Instead I ran with scissors..

    Funny stuff until somebody actually gets bombed. But, hey, I'm not anywhere near asia or america, so you guys enjoy your (nuclear) wars.
    English is not my first language, feel free to correct any mistake I may make.

    Real world through wow, although the in-game lore is surprisingly similar!
