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.

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.

it's a sad news for us and US and South Korea are set to engage in two months of war games starting next week.

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.

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.

Though, like others said, it's unlikely for a nuclear attack to occur, but it's still kind of scary that any threats of this nature are being made.

I'm already tired of hearing about this. They HAVE nuclear weapons, or at least nuclear material. The problem is that they haven't designed a nuclear weapon small enough to fit into a missile.

I can't figure out why we're still putting up with this. I don't care how big their nuclear bomb is, and neither should you. They are actively pursuing nuclear weaponry, they have violated all missile-related treaties and sanctions and have publicly declared nuclear war on America. They have let the world know that the instant they put a nuclear missile together, they're going to launch it at us.

You know what Obama, Congress and the UN have done to stop them? Nothing. Just more threats and warning. It would take less than 24 hours to destroy their test facilities with non-nuclear weaponry. Why won't we just blow them up? Because we're the "good guys?" Because it would make us look bad? The US is a joke to the rest of the world. Obama won't authorize a strike until we have a few hundred thousand US civilian casualties, and even then he might just make more speeches about how "we will not tolerate their actions." Assuming he stops taking vacations long enough to do so.

Again, I don't care if they're just showing off, years away, or they're too poor, or if we have anti-missile technology that "could totally blow their missile up before it even gets close." HE WANTS TO KILL ALL OF US, and he's getting closer to it every day. We need to actually DO something instead of "moniter the situation."

Maybe the reason why they don't have the means to actually attack you right now IS the reason the US won't strike North Korea yet? Together with the fact that, even though they're beginning to get fed up with them, the Chinese are still technically allies of North Korea. Now imagine what a strike would unleash.

What the UN does is to set up punishing measures on North Korea, and even the Chinese are agreeing for stricter measures now. North Korea takes that as an attack because they think their cause is legitimate and holy and nothing can stop them; so they will be ready to do anything. They already cancelled the non-attack pact with South Korea, giving the world the signal that they won't hesitate to retaliate heavily at any more provocation. Before the US are attacked, we should worry about South Korea. They're at war, always have been technically, and NK definitely has the range and power to attack SK.

Nothing because China lacks the ability to power project outside the immediate region? Having a feasible army of 40 million with a draft means nothing if you can't send them somewhere and then sustain them for operations for any legnth of time. The sheer amount of resources needed to sustain even a decent force outside of southeast Asia would cripple China faster than any attack the US could do, and would be a hell of a lot cheaper.

China attacking SK first would pit the world against it. Given that NATO alone outnumbers China's carriers 15:1, and the proximity of the Japanese Defense forces, and both SK and Japan being under the US' Nuclear Umbrella, China would stand to lose too much in any attack. Furthermore, I trust that Beijing is smart enough to avoid getting drawn into a conflict by Pyongyang.

Just saber rattling, and nothing much.

do you people really think china is stupid enough to choose to attack sk?
if usa attacks nk then they most likely dont protect them. what benefit would china have if they choose to fight along nk? completely nothing.
china isn't going to start a big *** war only because of nk.
(i guess this whole debate about china is just because of americans that are scared of china)
