Poem

Kim Yong Un
Was fond of a bun.
He bloody nearly
Weighed a ton.
Poor Kim ! his life was tedious circuits
Of eating buns and silly haircuts.
he said, i've built a bomb
i've built a rocket
And its been fun, i wouldn't knock it.
but what would be enormous fun
would be meeting a really special someone
just like me - a great bullshitter!
I wonder if there's one on Twitter.

U.S. presidents have been keeping this situation in check for 60 years through diplomacy

Er, not exactly.........in 2003 North Korea withdrew from the NPT, which it had acceded to in 1985, when they were discovered to be illegally enriching uranium. Since then they have developed nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions 1718, 1874, 2087, 2094, 2270, 2321 and 2371 which brings us to the present situation.

The climate of the Cuban missile crisis was much more intense since most people knew of military units called to action. I remember walking around the block on a warm early evening and hearing the news from a few TV's but there were many people watching Mr. Ed as well.

I had a dream of WWIII that is still crystal clear in my mind. The four minute warning consisted of people looking out their front door and blaming each other until everything went white.

We had the films and the drills in the US, too, although they stopped a long time ago. If you've been keeping up with the news, you know that N Korea does have missiles capable of reaching the US. I don't know why we wouldn't have enough warning to shoot them down before they get here.

I do believe that if N Korea launched a missile armed with a nuke warhead at us, it would likely be the last one. It would be a gesture of defiance, because they don't have a lot of them, and because the crazy man in the White House would likely obliterate them, regardless of who else would be affected.

"It's very easy for those in the UK and all those who are out of range of DPRK missiles, to bandy charges and statements back and forth."

Rap, here in the UK we lived under the dark shadow of nuclear war through the 70s and 80s, pretty much up to the fall of the Berlin Wall. The threat from the USSR was very, very real and very close to us. We had frequent testing of the air raid sirens (chilling, never got used to them) and there were public safety films that told us what to do in the even of an attack. Does the 'Four Minute Warning' mean anything too you?

Most of your country isn't in range of these missiles, there are no nuclear warheads yet and even then strikes would be very limited as NK doesn't have the capacity to mount a large-scale nuclear attack. On the other hand, if the USSR had attacked us during the cold war us and Europe would have been utterly devastated and rendered uninhabitable. Why do you think so many people in Europe were alarmed when Regan got into power? It wasn't the US that would be subject to pre-emptive strikes had the tanks rolled across the border... it would have been us.

Scary times we hoped we'd seen the last of. Big cultural impact too.

The Fun Boy Three tell it as was.

Successful Brinkmanship is not determined by intelligence. It relies on luck. imho

btw fallout is the least of the problems with nuclear war.

N Korea does not have H bombs so their devices will be dirty.

America has three different kinds of bombs, fission, fusion and neutron. A fourth kind is theoretical.

H bombs can destroy some bunkers while neutron bombs only kill life and leaves structures intact but aged.

Which dogs of war would Trump release?

We do not even have an ambassador in Pyongyang

Who will win the race; Mueller to impeachment or Trump to war?

Where is the CIA pristine bullet strategy when we need one?

The US is downwind from a Korean Nuclear war.
The deadly fallout would effect the Bering Sea to Hawaii, unless neutron bomb air bursts are used. Fallout from Fusion bombs would be measurable world wide. Across America the 'milk people' would not be happy with their Strontium 90 milk.

One good thing could be the drop in the price in property values all along the west coast cities

We'd be much better served by a S.o.S with some diplomatic experience. This is no time for on the job training, plus Tillerson is being handcuffed by President Bannon/Trump who is trying to gut the State Department by underfunding it and understaffing it so, presumably, they can handle foreign affairs from the White House (via tweets and nasty rhetoric). Old hands from the Department will tell you that most of the critical diplomatic work is done by officials below the cabinet level but President B/T hasn't seen fit to fill many of those posts. This crisis is of Trump's making and the only solution is for him to back off (or ideally resign), throw out Bannon and get a competent Secretary of State and create a healthy and vigorous diplomatic corp. Of course, not much chance of all that happening.

"I know the average people have no control over him, but they don't seem to want any"

Huh? So it's OK is they die in a US strike then? Do you understand the conditions these people live under? They are victims of an extremely brutal totalitarian regime, and they don't have a choice. You think they choose to live like that? Jesus.

"Something new and different has to be tried."

Perhaps, but shouting your mouth off like a drunken idiot man-baby isn't the way forward; this moron doesn't know that real life isn't like his telly show. All Trump is doing is playing into Kim's hands and creating an atmosphere of fear and tension around the world in which simple mistakes, misunderstandings and misinterpretations could become the trigger for a nuclear war.

If Kim fires his missiles at the seas around Guam and the US acts with force then all bets are off, and the world has a two fat cock-waving narcissist imbeciles intent on showing the world which one is the biggest poltroon whilst millions die and suffer. Trump is too much of a sad alpha male NOT to react with force, one can but hope his hand is stayed by saner voices advising him.

Containment isn't ideal, but keeping the peace is paramount and this week the whole of the UN voted in new sanctions including China and Russia, no small feat in that talking shop. China is the key to keeping Pyongyang in line and they must be encouraged to help in this matter, using peaceful methods such as political pressure. Of course this sort of understanding is beyond the Pussy-Grabber-in-Chief and he's spent part of his incumbency pissing off the Chinese; not a bad thing in some ways, but Trump's lack of subtlety and total gobshiteness leaves little room for manoeuvre when trouble occurs and a different approach is needed.

Trump thinks that the US waving it's huge bollocks and a semi-automatic at the world whilst chanting "USA! USA! USA! look at our huge balls and despair" is the answer to any disagreement with an enemy... as we know, that hasn't worked out so well in the past and it won't again.

Especially for the ordinary folk. It's they who will die horribly, and they don't deserve it.

NK developed ICBMs and nuclear warheads faster than anyone believed possible, under the previous US administration.

You may disagree with Trump's methods but his predecessors got us into this mess not him.

China will not stand by if the DPRK is attacked or if another country is attacked by the DPRK. China is into making money and if the ROK is attacked, well, the ROK was good for USD $90.1B imports from China in 2015, and the ROK exported USD $131B to China that year.

On the other hand, the DPRK imported USD $2.34B from China and exported USD $2.95B to China in 2015. (My source is http://atlas.media.mit.edu.)

Fraternal Marxist bonds be damned, China isn't going to lose a USD $88B market because of some lunatic kid...and that kid only remains in power because China wants the DPRK as a buffer state.

I just hope there's a substantial buffer between our nutbag, megalomaniacal president and the nuclear codes, with or without stiletto heels.

"You are completely safe in Ireland though Jim."
Are we
Not too long ago, the US was shipping suspects through our airport, thirty miles from here in order for them to be waterboarded in Guantanamo
When will you twots realise that nobody is safe from nuclear weapons.
"NK has threatened to attack US "
And the US has threatened t attack NK - two Nuclear nutters facilitated going head-to-head - just what an already unstable world wants right now
The U.S. has always been a treat to world peace when it comes to nations who don't "do it my way"

The U.S. has them, there is no argument against why any nation capable of manufacturing them shouldn't have the right to defend itself.

Does it have the need to defend itself.
No-one has tried to attack NK since the ceasefire, and no-one has even threatened to.
If anyone did, NK has the ability with conventional weapons to utterly destroy the capital city of SK. That should be a sufficient deterrent.

NK has threatened to attack US and is thought capable of nuclear strikes against West Coast cities and maybe as far inland as Chicago.

You are completely safe in Ireland though Jim.

Is there not a certain grim irony in a nuclear power with a leadership as belligerent and unstable as the Trump administration's, a power that conducted a war against Third World peasants for seven years by pouring burning petrol on them and spraying them with carcinogenic chemicals - the only state that has ever used weapons of mass destruction on two cities of non-combatant civilians - telling another State that it is not to be trusted with nuclear weapons?
The warning bells on the proliferation of Nuclear weaponry should have been heeded when it was revealed that, in 1975, one extremist state attempted to arm another, Apartheid South Africa with these WMD
Nobody is to be trusted with them and if The U.S. has them, there is no argument against why any nation capable of manufacturing them shouldn't have the right to defend itself.
Wake-up time down West, I think!

Someone is going to have to literally tackle Trump one of these days to keep him from going off half-cocked and starting a war. And that individual will have to trust that whoever is the next president will pardon them. I'm really hoping it's one of the women in the House or Senate, wearing stilettos for the occasion, who puts a hole through his foot before taking out the family jewels with a knee. Seriously, he's that dense that it's going to take a physical intervention.

The Korean War actually never ended. And should the DPRK attack the US, I believe that there would be a declaration of war so fast you're not going to believe it: Congress actually working together. But that's not necessary, as Congress gave the President the authority to launch a retaliatory strike back in the '50s.
