North Korean's aren't exactly considered to be fine Asians. I don't recall a time in history when they've ever been? So excuse the hell out of me for being a little pissed at those particular Asians for threatening the U.S. I have both relatives and my roots there, and excuse the hell out of me for not ignoring the fact that something so devastating as a nuclear bomb could very well affect Canada on many different levels too. Just keep the demeaning B.S. to yourself.

You are demeaning yourself on this one. Yes my comment was somewhat racist, however in light of the situation, it was also appropriate. I certainly won't lose any sleep over it. lol

I hope radiation will not reach New York's universities. I am studying for major at one of them, and I fear that if capital is bombed, fallout may spread further north.

For someone claiming to be studying at a New York University you really seem to be geographically retarded. What makes you think a NK missile can past the threshold of reaching Hawaii?

The threat is empty... NK has made many threats for attention. The U.S. will send food and medical supplies to NK. This is the pattern since the cease fire.
Yeah, the problem with that,is the people don't get the food or medical supplies, NOR do they even know that we provide aid to their country in the first place. They think every American is sitting around trying to figure out how to destroy NK. it's laughable.

We should invade RIGHT NOW..what would thy do? They would be caught so off guard, they wouldn't have time to mount a nuclear strike, cause the capital would be over run with allied troops in a matter of hours. We need to drop airborne divisions behind the lines, and launch an armored assault across the border from coast to coast. Airborne rangers need to jump into Pyongyang and take the airfields while seals take the leadership out. It can be done in one day with our capability, we just need the political will to carry it out.

We have bombs that can wipe out their troop populations too. Neutron bombs are hard to detect and leave no obvious trace other than lots of dead bodies. This is how to deal with their million infantry troops.drones all over the country. impose a no fly zone.....Pyongyang has no idea who they are messing with. We have the ability to completely level North Korea without even using nuclear weapons.

While we're at i, let's nuke Iran, get the business over and done with.

N Korea is no threat to anyone but themselves. It is almost embarassing how they rattle their little sabers in an attempt to get attention. Kim Jong-un fully realizes with his Swiss educated brain, that alone, he stands zero chance of "winning" a war with U.S./Japanese backed S. Korea.
Even the N Korean men have to feel less masculine with all the rhetoric and no action. When will they back up their empty little words? Why don't everyone in that country just put on a skirt so you can show exactly what thay are? Dickless, weak, weak minded and pathetic excuses for men and/or humans.
