I was stationed in S Korea twice. The saber-rattling is something that happened all the time. The missiles & nukes are new.
IF they fire on someone, we ought to unload every conventional weapon we have on them, preferably military targets. I know the average people have no control over him, but they don't seem to want any, and Kim is a threat to other countries.

Whatever happens, it's going to affect S. Korea and to some extent, China. It would be good to end the Korean war, but it would be better to do it by wielding diplomats and not weapons.
...and the way to start is to get Trump to shut the hell up.

The US President threatened to slaughter millions of innocent people who have zero control over the actions of their leaders on TV last night. That is how fucked the world has become.

That a person could be so idiotic, flippant and matter-of-fact about visiting such unimaginable suffering on people is beyond comprehension. Two fat bastards shouting at each other like spoilt, attention-seeking children in the school playground. They are both contemptible, Trump the more so because his lack of intelligence and nuance means he's little more than a corporate bully that is way out of his depth, unfit and unable even to comprehend his awesome responsibilities. It's only ever been about him, as it is with Kim.

Remember: The host of a reality game show just threatened to burn the children of North Korea in a thermonuclear strike of "fire and fury". The capitalist lunatics have taken over the asylum."

I should like to commend this as Mudcat Sentence (or two) Of The Month. Even though I never swear like that here!

I see a massive country rattling its high-tech nuclear sabres at another country rattling it's totally low-tech ramshackle sabres. And in the wings we have a rather stern massive China, staring fiercely at both, (nuclear) arms akimbo. Standoffs look so dramatic and they make really good Hollywood. But the whole bloody thing is so puerile. Most wars, hot or cold, are fought between good guys and bad guys. This one is utter twats vs utter twats.

"They" did not create the regime in NK.
If NK regime are "utter twats" they were utter twats under previous administrations, but not dealt with by them.
The can was just kicked down the road, and here we are.

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.

Something new and different has to be tried.

"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.

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.

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.

"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.

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.

If Trump had a different war to pursue with better profitability he would. Any war will do to cement his authority/dictatorship to supersede investigations.

Unconfirmed, unsubstantiated claims that NPRK has miniaturized nukes is by just one agency on their own, is what this brouhaha is based on.

Clinton considered striking his nuclear sites back when they were still vulnerable, but chose not to.

Backwoodsman,
As you find a perfectly sane and responsible suggestion from an experienced statesman so amusing,

No. It is indeed a sane and responsible suggestion to hope for and work towards the current Kim being deposed, but as I said that is long term and we are now faced with an imminent and urgent crisis.
I am sure that has been the strategy in recent years anyway, but so far it has failed miserably.

So now it falls to Trump to do something, and it has to be something different.

Its not time for bunkers to be locked and you get loaded but Trump triple dog dared KIM that the US military is locked and loaded.
Donald just had to tweet that the fire and fury comment was not worded strongly enough.

In the fog of war something is certain to go wrong.
"If you want some new songs about WWIII you better write them now"
Tom Lehrer

El Douche' will put his hands on his hips and grin if Kim does not send missiles over Japan into the sea 22 miles from Guam. That will be Donnie's only victory.
Kim will still want to dare Trump back. If it is done with words things may cool.

Locked, loaded and looney. Twit is playing chicken with a fellow unpredictable nutbag in Kim, and those dark men behind him, and with his further tough talk he's alienating the country whose intervention may be the only real way out of this, China. It's past time to get him out of there and get some serious people back in charge.

"you have some mechanism in mind for putting the genie back in the bottle?"
The question of international co-operation has always been and remains the only workable answer
If our leaders are not going to co-operate than we have no future - simple as that.
Not easy, but situations like this underline the need to start somewhere

Does the power, ingenuity and size of the military industrial complex NOT have the power to stop, shut down, deny service, block or divert Twitter for even a little while????

Pre-emptive Nuclear War by Twitter from a resort golf course, dog leg left, par 4, 6th hole is a scenario not even Kurt Vonnegut could have imagined. Lets hope Trump does not become stymied, angry and frustrated by the right front sand trap or left bunker and god forbid unleash hell in a vengeful anguished tantrum.

Some would argue these same people have managed to lame his Presidency and therefore are calling all the shots. What price your democracy now?
