Wack Job Boy Wonder 30 year old Kim Jong Un wants to "settle the accounts" with the USA. He Claims they are ready to do battle and shoot rockets into the heart of America. We have 30,000 troops in South Korea that are at the ready and in immediate harms way. I am sure there are those that would like to solve the issue of the Korean Peninsula once and for all, this may be the chance. Remember this is a inexperienced leader with a lot of wild ideas about the way things work and no real life practical experience (kinda like the pres of the US too).
If this escalates into a Hot action there will be a very quick response and there will a lot of casualties in a very short time. NK has lots of bodies US and SK have lots of technology. If you have a family member serving there make sure to call and tell them you love them and wish them a Happy Easter, their stress level has gone way up the past week.

First while he is a wack job.. I do not believe he is that stupid.
Second the issue is not N.K... but China. If N.K. attacks... what will China do? In Korean war, we almost won, until China got involved....

The Chinese have way to much financially invested into the US to do anything more than supply KN with some outdated weapons and sympathy (along with body bags). They would like to see the quick destruction/resolution of North issues as well, they just don't want to do it themselves. They need the cheap Labor as the capitalistic nature of the Chinese economy has a need for even lower paid workers to sustain the output they are used too. They have a huge emerging middle class that wants services and they want them cheap. So viol'a enter the woefully ignorant labor force of NK all wrapped and ready for something new after what living in the 1900s the past century.

Greek Your insight to the Korean issue is spot on. I too don't think the Chinese are much interested into a hot war with the US or any other major power. The other factor is the actual Leaders of NK (military generals will probably stage a coupe before letting Un upset the lifestyles they have come to enjoy. They enjoy a very lavish life and are not going to let some 30 yr old dolt ruin a good thing.

I believe there will be a Go Hot situation within days over there. Some bizarre NK missile failure that splashes 30 miles off course and a coalition F-22 wasting a launch site or two. All sides save face and we go back to Defcon-3 over there. They just have to negotiate the deal before it goes off.

Another scenario is the old guard are getting very old and realise they can not hold on to power for Mutch longer, if there was some sort of civil war or coup revolution ect, they will all be put up against the wall! So another alternative is to go out in style and let the west win and let the western mugs sort it out?

Your not seeing the big Picture The Old Guard is not going anywhere unless China gives a wink and a nod to pro western allies. NKs leadership have a problem with the new kid on the block but will make every effort to maintain the status quo. There is not the means for an uprising by the people. If a hot war ensues the NK Army will send 1 million over the border . It may well be a slaughter for NK but Seoul Korea will be destroyed and millions killed in the process.

I am seeing the big picture! The old guard in nth Korea are dinosaurs, where the Chinese old guard like Russia have realised you have to change move on, even communism had to evolve to survive, I think china wants to see the back of the nth Korean junta more than the yanks! See a unified Korean Peninsula, with no American bases, nth Korea has always been chinas east Germany! Since the wall came down Russia the Cold War has fizzled most Russians feel safer, the Chinese have seen this, they will benefit the most, they know the USA would never attack china, look how Vietnam Iraq Afghanistan turned out?

Forgot to say Louise 16th thought there was not the means for any opposition, until the masses got pissed off with being pissed off?

Borders between North and South are now closed, the NKs will be seeing shortages beyond what they normally have. This way Un can point the finger of misery at someone else. Herein lies the basis for what future action he may take; if there is upheaval from the people he may well do something stupid to provoke the western allies (US) if they do not get to upset he will lay claim that he has protected them and solidified his position as the ruler.

Looks as if the NKs are going to fire a Missile over Japan. The Japs are non to pleased. Our non committed Joints Chiefs statement was that it would or probably would not shoot down the test missile so as not to provoke the NKs. So they are taking target practice at/over a country under US protection, since 1945, and our President is going wait and see how it plays itself out ?

Has everyone forgotten, the cease fire was between North Korea and the United States, not NK and SK? There never has been a treaty between NK and SK, especially one to void.
When NK announced the cease fire with SK was null and void, NK never said the cease fire with the US is also null and void. Why is that important? Think of NK as a slippery lawyer in court. Words are precise, and statements well thought out. If they garner the reaction they want, they can claim they never broke the cease fire with the US, and that we are the aggressors.
NK will not attack US troops directly. Instead, they will huff and puff, and launch a few shells at an empty beach. Kim is playing a dangerous game, to demonstrate to his senior staff he is strong enough, or atleast dangerous enough, for the job.

Un is, by western standards, considered below average in intelligence. He has No experience other than going to work with his father on occasion. He also has his finger on the trigger of one of the larger armies in the world (albeit under armed and technologically deficient) As for the mincing of words and and cease fires. The USA and a few other countries have between 70-80000 troops squarely located on his door step to SK. We are not likely to A. get out of the way if it goes hot (nor could we) because we have a cease fire with the North and B. abandon our long time allies. And the Japanese are Still under US protection visa vie the 1945 surrender and reconstruction agreements. This is a real issue as the US leadership is considered internationally to have the stomach for further military action.

Meant to say USA is "Not considered to have the stomach for further military action around the globe."
