Trump should call Kim fat, see what his response is.

so many uninformed responses on this thread.

Kim says shit like this because it is one of the tools he uses to control his own people and look strong internally. I doubt he has any intention of carrying it out. He did not grow up in isolation like the rest of the people in his country did. He knows if he has any chance of survival in any conflict he cannot look like the bad guy. He knows if the US looks to be the aggressor China will pledge their support to him which would likely cause us to de-escalate.

If he goes and nuke something in response to an insult NO ONE will support them and once China backs out he is done.



End of 2009 Predictions (Set, January 1st 2009)

Wii- 72 million   3rd Year Peak, better slate of releases

360- 37 million   Should trend down slightly after 3rd year peak

PS3- 29 million  Sales should pick up next year, 3rd year peak and price cut

It's all talk, which is typical of Kim. Guess the flavor of this month is Guam. Wonder what he's going to threaten next month...

I agree that Un is posturing, but I severely doubt that the USA would attack first or that China would support NK.

China is one of the biggest forces imposing the new sanctions on NK.

The USA would react to any attack, but our diplomats have repeatedly stressed that we won't start shit. Which is part of why China is glad to commit to the sanctions. NK's time is done. Either the sanctions strangle the life from them, since they aren't self-succient or they take the truly stupid path of attacking someone and everyone jumps their ass.



People need to relax. Kim makes a new threat every week. It is interesting that in South Korea there is zero anxiety over North Korea most of the time unlike America.

Trump very likely might set off the Kim Bomb

To be fair, this particular Kim has been moving in this direction since prior to Trump's arrival. He's even more brutal and hotheaded than his two predecessors.

Regardless, this situation will certainly test the limits of Mutally Assured Destruction. Leaders in the past have been intelligent enough to avoid such things, but Kim seems like he might just be dumb enough to actually doom himself.



NK has an inferiority complex that they're trying to cover up by talking shit. Just let them go crazy in that little sad land of theirs.



Honestly, Kim going off kinda has to happen at some point. I'm more worried for the surrounding countries, special south korea. Is china really just gonna stand by and do nothing?

I give this a 1% chance of happening.



If anyone is going to get North Korea to nuke the US, it's Trump.
Seriously the most inept politician democracy has come up with decades. The guy from Idiocracy seems like a more competent leader; at least prior to his presidency, as qualification, he actually WON a pro-wrestling championship.
