    North Korea is the Mountain. Annoying, very likely to do bad things, not hugely important in the overall scheme of things, stupid and possibly a zombie.

    Didn't North Korean archaeologists dig up a Unicorn Lair last year or was it a terrible mistranslation? Could have been a dream, I had some weird ones last week with the flu.

    I think they said they built "unicron" not "unicorn"

    The N.Korean army has been given the approval for 'merciless' nuclear attacks on the US, while the US moves an anti defense system to Guam. Hmmmm. Not liking these developments at all.

    Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) said Tuesday that the United States had the right to take pre-emptive military action against North Korea if there was "solid evidence" that Kim Jon Un planned to attack the U.S. or South Korea.

    "If we have good reason to believe there's going to be an attack, I believe we have the right to take pre-emptive action," King said on CNN's "Erin Burnett Outfront."

    "I don't think we have to wait until Americans are killed or wounded or injured in any way," he continued. "I'm not saying we should be rushing into war, don't get me wrong, but if we have solid evidence that North Korea's going to take action, then I think we have a moral obligation and an absolute right to defend ourselves."

    Since he can't do jackshit to Americans then the US need not do anything.

    Given just how many men North Korea has (to throw into battle) i doubt the U.S. would mess around with ground warfare. I sure hope they don't nuke'em. If possible, they should attempt to erase Kim Jong Un and those closest. Then it might be interesting to see how brainwashed the North Korean people are, as they just might want peace, and be more like South Korea. Maybe they could take down the border and become one.

    But then the NK army are starving, under-armed and thousands try to defect every year. If the fat little tit does try to start a war, he's more likely to kick off a military coup.

    Bet this can all be traced back to their crushing defeat in the World Cup.

    Because what this situation REALLY needs is for Anonymous to stick their KFC grease-covered fingers in.

    @MrTomFTW To be fair, anonymous could probably bring the North Korean computer network down on their own.

    If reports are to believed, a mild breeze could bring down NK's IT infrastructure.

    From what I can tell of the situation, fuck all will happen. The NK regime knows that for them to actually attack in any real manner would mean their death. With this political suicide in mind, it is very, very obvious that nothing will happen and this is nothing more than a war of words on an international level.

    Which one was it that did Gangnam Style? I reckon we should nuke them anyway just in case.

    Psy is from Seoul. Several tens of thousands of artillery positions are trained on it from the North.

    Probably a load of bollocks, but someone on twitter talked about the US wanting to provoke NK into attacking to give them an excuse to invade.

    Utter shite. What on earth is the US going to invade Korea with? And why would they want to go in there? There's zero of value.

    Probably right, other than the couple of hundred thousand dead Seoul residents.

    at a guess US would be keeping an eye on things for anything they can exploit to improve their diplomatic relationships with the area. Especially China, who are no doubt getting pissed off with NK's behaviour. Certainly China won't go charging in for all kinds of reasons, but a united front to get NK to sort their shit out and behave might be fortuitous for all kinds of secondary reasons.

    @FWB Well, the main two I can think of:

    1. To give them a military position directly next to China
    2. To push US companies to provide the rebuilding contracts and take advantage of any possible export minerals and so on

    Not saying I think it's accurate mind.

    Nothing behind that. The rebuilding would be insane. They can't fix their own problems at home, let alone pump billions, nay trillions into a shithole.

    As for a position next to China, why? Why would they want to put troops on their border? And more importantly what chance would they have that the Chinese would sit and let it happen.

    NK has zero to offer and isn't near Israel, so containment is the policy.

    The South Koreans wouldn't need the US to help in rebuilding, if anything it would push them closer to China since all they'd need is money which the US can't provide.

    A significant reason for the Japanese economic problems is that Japanese companies are getting whipped by the Koreans. It's pretty easy to see it happening in Asia as Korean products have been getting more and more shelf space in the shops.

    For example when it comes to premium white goods Samsung is now the most popular brand in Thailand whereas ten years ago it probably would have been Hitachi.

    Missile on the move.

    NORTH Korea has reportedly been seen moving a mid-range missile in to position for launch.

    South Korean Yonhap news agency reports that North Korea's new KN08 Musudan missile has been spotted in the process of being transported towards the Sea of Japan.

    The KN08 Musudan is still under-development and it is unclear if it has the range to reach the United States mainland. Previous assessments have given it a range of 4000km - potentially enough to reach the United States controlled island of Guam.

    Any sign of missile movements and preparations is likely to dramatically escalate tensions.

    Kind of like when you get two men posturing and threatening the other with violence, neither committed enough to carty out their threat and both with too much pride to back down. But with nukes!
