North Korea has vowed to nuke the U.S.A.

Feel free to discuss the subject. Do you think they'd follow through? What do you imagine the result would be? What results could come about from this vow? etc

This sounds like a scare-tactic from an inexperienced dictator. This guy is 30 years old, much younger than most of the world's major leaders, but he wants North Korea to have the same scary, fearless image as it has had for decades. He would have to be stupid to nuke anyone, let alone one of the two superpowers that could blow the entire nation to smithereens as many times as it wanted to. He knows he isn't the man his father was, or certainly not the man his grandfather was. He just doesn't want the North to look weak after losing the face of their country for 17 years.

It sounds to me like someone just wants to make daddy proud of him.... even if daddy has been dead for over a year now.

That's my opinion on the matter, anyway. I can't speak for Kim Jong-un or his current mental state.

Do you think they'd follow through?

They might, if they think people are making a laughing stock out of them.

What do you imagine the result would be?

Any nuke they sent would be intercepted/disabled in some way, then there would likely be UN Reparations resulting in the end of North Korea's dictatorship. How the people there respond afterwards is anyone's guess, likely they won't be too happy for the most part.

What results could come about from this vow?

As Hahiha said, it seems like a last ditch effort to pander for being taken seriously.

I believe it is more like that North Korea will attack South Korea. It would be equally suicidal, however, it also the most realistic outcome. The renouncing of the ceasefire actually gives this merrit. As far as I know Kim Jong Il did nothing of the sort.

Poor North Korea. Even if they follow through with their threats, they'll probably become radioactive dust on the wind, or a laughing stock of a country.
I doubt they will follow through, though.

dont forget the advisers that worked for his father and now for him. ;)

i dont believe he personally is such a bad person. ive readed about his youth in switzerland. and how he was during his school years. and that made me believe that his advisers are more into power then he is himself.
i dont think he wants to do this. but he has to.

-.-" I hate when I make stupid mistakes like that. Darn visual memory.

That's the problem with brainwashing everyone into radicals. Even when the leader changes, the people won't. One person is a lot easier to change views of than millions.

Do you think they'd follow through?

Nope because I don't think they're that stupid. Though I may be wrong.

What do you imagine the result would be?

Umm, well if they were successful, the US would retaliate. And if the US somehow intercepts or destroys the nuclear missile well, they would probably retaliate considering it was an attack. So either way North Korea would be declaring war, or so I believe.

What results could come about from this vow?

The UN. Nuff said.

Poor North Korea. Even if they follow through with their threats, they'll probably become radioactive dust on the wind, or a laughing stock of a country.

Yup... Either way they are a laughing stock because everybody either knows or thinks they won't do anything, and even if they do it won't end well.
