Actually, no - NK has the largest military manpower in the world. At last count over 9 million. However, 8.2 million are reservists - which in NK includes all past service members (including retirees and senior citizens).

When it comes to "fit for service," NK isn't even in the top 10.

Ranking NK in total firepower, they rank 28th - just below such powerhouse nations as Sweden, Poland and Mexico.

We need to ask ourselves one question - why would any country advertise where their first strike capability targets are?
One last thing to ponder - if NK does indeed launch a nuclear strike on South Korea - they'd be putting themselves in the direct fallout path - for 75 years.
But then again, nobody ever said this idiot was very intelligent - Dennis Rodman's buddy...lol
There you are. Was waiting on your answer. There are a few more am waiting to pipe in.

The way I see it. Mankind isn't the smartest creature on Earth. Let us look at the bombs set off in the desert of New Mexico. Then we can look at the wind patterns. Would seem to me, we are all rather 'screwed'. So direction of wind or fallout seems to me.. to mean nothing to man.

I still would like to know where that wee brat is going to send missiles, as I've relatives on the west coast.

Further more, if the belligerent wee freak sends missiles to San Francisco ..would be like going to war with China. Who the hell's side would China be on?

NK doesn't have the vehicle to strike the West Coast - they say they do, but all they have is 1960's old Soviet technology.

I know it's a blog, but lots of decent information:

Look for an "x" to opt out. I get no such screen - maybe I can copy and paste, hold on. It's a very good article - makes some very interesting points.

Today, North Korea unveiled its "U.S. mainland strike plan" in a map showing Hawaii, Washington, D.C., Austin, Texas and Los Angeles, California as primary targets. The map appeared in a photograph of an "emergency meeting" between Kim Jong Un and his top military advisors, and was broadcast by the country's propaganda arm KCNA.

It's a little difficult to make out because the lines of the continental United States are so light, but the above image shows lines pointing directly to the mainland targets of Los Angeles and Austin (Kim is clearly upset he never got to host a SXSW interactive panel on the future of Logitech hardware.) This expanded image below shows the area of the map more clearly (NK News has a smart overlay here).

Almost as soon as this latest threat surfaced, weapons experts laughed it out of the room given its ambitious assessment of North Korea's weapons capability. "How clumsy of #NKorea to accidentally display their US Mainland Striking Plan -- with ICBMs that don't exist," tweeted Mark Fitzpatrick, director of the nonproliferation and disarmament program for the International Institute for Strategic Studies. "If North Korea tried very hard and got lucky, they might be able to develop and ICBM version of the Unha-2 in five years," he later told FP in an e-mail exchange. Speaking to the country's missile range specifically, IHS Jane's Defense Weekly editor James Hardy wrote that "there is little to no chance that it could successfully land a missile on Guam, Hawaii or anywhere else outside the Korean Peninsula that U.S. forces may be stationed."

Obviously, it's possible that U.S. intelligence and independent analyses underestimate North Korea's capabilities, a concept fleshed out by our own Kevin Baron this week. But for comparison purposes, here's the extent of North Korea's missile range according to Western experts.

First, this map data is from the Federation of American Scientists and the Center for Nonproliferation Studies. As you can see, North Korea's operational missile capacity, in green, can't even make it to India.

Interesting. Thank you for doing that.

To me, by his targets, he has a bone to pick with the music industry. Maybe he should stop smoking. Guy is a real freak. He wants to imitate western ways.. in the same breath as hating them.

Will have to read deeper when I can sit back down for a bit and stay.

Now things are a tad more interesting:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-220...

The US has announced it is moving an advanced missile system to the Pacific island of Guam as North Korea steps up its warlike rhetoric.

The latest statement from Pyongyang "formally informs" the Pentagon it has "ratified" a possible nuclear strike.

North Korea has threatened to target the US and South Korea in recent weeks.

Its latest statement came amid warnings from US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel that North Korea is a "real and clear danger" to the US and its allies.

The US Department of Defense said on Wednesday it would deploy the ballistic Terminal High Altitude Area Defense System (Thaad) in the coming weeks...

The Pentagon is still "unsure" of North Korea's nuclear capability. They have yet to weapons test a long range vehicle - specificly capable of reaching North America.

"North Korea's ability to deliver weapons of mass destruction to a hypothetical target is somewhat limited by its missile technology. As of 2005, North Korea's total range with its Nodong missiles estimated as 900 km with a 1000 kg payload, enough to reach South Korea, and parts of Japan, Russia and China. It is not known if this missile is capable of carrying the nuclear weapons North Korea may have developed."

Thanks for posting that.
More direct info than I've seen yet.
Doesn't help S. Korea but I don't think
N. Korea would be that stupid. It
would just be putting themselves in the
path of fallout. I'm assuming They
realize that.

Okay, this is what I was mostly looking for. I trust news coming out of the UK. Seems something is brewing:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asi...

US defence secretary: North Korea presents a real and clear danger
Chuck Hagel, the defence secretary, warned of a "real and clear" danger from North Korea as it was revealed that the Pentagon is sending an advanced ballistic missile defense system to Guam.

Then when you read through these, it makes you wonder how anyone over there is alive: http://www.kcna.co.jp/index-e.htm
