    North Koreans could throw many at the US making the probability of one or more hitting a real threat (either an EMP knocking at power grids and/or urban area/areas taken out).

    However, though, there doesn't seem to be an economic action possible as there is no way the US won't stop trade with China (NK's backer).

    The North Korea situation will be brought up again on Monday. Fat Kim already had his stepbrother killed so we know what he is capable of.

    I doubt China will stop supporting the North as long as the USA is in the South. China wouldn't want the USA as a next door neighbor.

    I think the North Korea situation will probably be similar to the Cold War with Russia. A lot of talk but no actual war. Both countries know how completely devastating a nuclear war would be to their political power so they will probably do whatever it takes to avoid that.

    The North could be a suicide cult.

    Could be. No value for human life.

    Things seem to have gotten quiet lately, but you can never discount anything.

    It has been suggested that the US and North Korea are currently having covert discussions.

    But Iran is starting to do the same thing North Korea has been doing.

    Threat of force has become more common than having constructive discussions.

    Israel is going to get nervous about Iran if the US doesn't get Iran to mellow out.

    And Japan is already nervous about North Kore.

    I think in the end it can only go down in violence. They simply won't self-destruct from within and China won't help us. Really it's China's fault.

    Sure it is China's fault but they like having that buffer between themselves and the USA. Really can't blame them too much.

    Let's just hope they keep on trying to talk about finding a solution. Of course, Fat Kim is a mental retard so talking might not work.

    Still here as well. I think we'll avoid an all out war most likely.

    Yeah, it seems Trump did pretty good during his Asia trip. Maybe China will find a way to mellow the North Koreans out.

    From what I heard, the US has a weapon to wipe out NK electronics - if worst comes to worst.

    And it wouldn't take much to wipe out their power grids.

    If there is a ground war there will be many lives lost on both sides.

    The thing in Hawaii was scary - at least for them. Imagine if you were there.

    Yes, that would have been scary for most. They need to make those switches idiot-proof.

    The guy who flipped the switch has been fired.
