U.S. Should have bombed north Korea during their parade and wiped out most of their military in one swoop and should have bombed the missile there also.
Stop waiting. Do it already.

What we do know for sure is that Jong Un is hell-bent on starting a war and he likely will. In terms of what they've got - not much. 2-5 functioning low yield nuclear devices, none of which are miniaturized to the point where the mainland US faces a serious threat but Hawaii and Japan could be in range. The most likely target would be South Korea. North Korea's soldiers are poorly trained, their equipment is leftover Soviet junk from the late 50's. In all honesty, South Korea could probably take them down on their own but because there are US troops in the DMZ they'll be attacked too and we'll be drawn in. This is going to happen, sometime in the near future we're going to be at war with North Korea. I don't see this being a particularly difficult fight either, DPRK doesn't have the kind of infrastructure to withstand a sustained US effort for very long. I just hope we don't get sucked into another "regime change" circlejerk.

In the headline it says only a small amount of people will die. Isnt 1 to many. It would be a horrible if anyone dies because of this punk. If so the response should be overwhelming and devastating.

If he attacks anywhere, no matter how small, shoot a large missile up his fat ass. He's a pathetic looser born into a dinosaur dynasty, fully indoctrinated into a loosing cause.

I think Kim is beating his chest to show his generals and the world he is more than just a 3rd geneRATion Kim.
I think the chest pounding will continue till 4/24 (the day US & SK military exercise ends) at which time he can claim victory. He stood up to the US, Japan, SK, and to some extent China and they backed down.
The biggest threat is - accident ! If NK fires a test missile and it fails and lands in SK then war will start. I believe NK is setting up a missile test, kind of a snub to the west. We shall see.
What would interesting is to setup soup kitchens along the DMZ and see how many NK troops / peasants cross the boarder.

Kim Jong-Un has painted himself in a corner and to save face with his regime he believes he HAS to STRIKE and he WILL!
The truly sad thing is all the innocent deaths that are ahead. North Korea has a HUGE Army of soldiers and if fighting occurs at the border both sides will lose many many soldiers!
