North Koreans conduct second nuclear test.

Amusingly their conventional weaponry is still more powerful by the kiloton.

Yeah but nothing brings out the EVERYBODY PANIC OMG faster than the bogeyman of Nuclear Weapons being randomly slung around.

Though in all fairness, I suspect most countries would prefer to have a 50 kiloton conventional explosive dropped on them to a 10 kiloton nuke.

I can't imagine that all these chumps with nuclear ambitions will be remembered very fondly in the history books, but I don't suppose they care much, either.

And on the plus side of getting hit with even a small nuke, you'll have a very angry international community on your side. I forget where or when it was (somewhere in Africa or Iraq, I think), but some poor villagers got strafed by gunships that used anti-personnel flechette rockets, so government inspectors didn't find the tell-tale scorch marks and craters of such an attack.

Still kind of a choice between Shit A and Shit B, I guess.

Interesting.  I feel a disturbance in the force over this one.  Nothing linkable yet

Above the 38th Parallel, if it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing. 'cause y'know, the US, China, South Korea, Japan, and the rest of the world in general aren't pissed off at Kim Jong Ill enough.

At this point, I imagine that every yank jet plane in the region, as well as any other allied plane is on a heightened state.

Oddly enough, should this be more than posturing, the first shots would most likely be shot from howitzer.

Anybody see the latest news? I woke up this morning to see that NK has declared that it is no longer bound by the 1953 ceasefire.

Because the United States and the World in general aren't angry enough at the North already

(THAD EDIT: Link is to article titled "Will US send envoy after NKorea jails reporters?")

I know await the botched black op to rescue them involving the crash of at least two Blackhawk helicopters

Like we didn't expect that outcome.

Is China tired of their shit yet?  Because I think they're literally the only thing stopping us from just rolling right up to that prison and telling the guards there to give us our fucking people back or we'll dismantle the place brick by brick.

China is pretty sick of their shit, yeah. They provide damn near everything that lets North Korea function, but can't get any concessions out of them. I don't know that China would go to bat for us on this particular case, but it's getting worse between them.

Yes, but it seems to me that America stands to gain nothing from an invasion. What resources does North Korea have, besides eerily clean and anachronistic cities?

From what I understand, China has the ability to end the North Korean regime overnight if they wished.  The fact that they don't seems to indicate that having them around benefits China in some way.  Probably the fact that it pisses everyone else off

Two things about China:

1)  China really only gives a shit about what it believes to be China.  They had a chance to colonize the world well before the rest of us and decided it wasn't in their interests. 

2)  Any destabilization in NK would bring wide swaths of refugees flooding across the border.  This would be destabilizing for China, in what I assume is China's opinion.

Yeah, I mean, the DPRK is isn't building a border fence right now just to keep their folks IN (though that's part of it), thy're building it because China yelled at them to keep the riff-raff refugees OUT.

You guys do know that North Korea has enough artillery pointed at Seoul to level it, right? That's why we pay attention to them even if they're a bit silly.

Not to mention absurd amounts of landmines (on both sides) and an extensive military infrastructure (tunnel and such) which been under constant expansion since the last war. Any North Korean war would become a general Korean war within days.

China gets resources from North Korea, such as ore, coal, etc.

Not to mention any post-war unification process would be likely U.S./South Korea dominated.

Not worth fighting over two people, really. Not that we'll need to as North Korea will probably trade them for concessions of some sort.

NK may fire a missile toward Hawaii in early July.

Give us a reason to atomize you, sir.
