    Who knows? I do think there is a genuine resolve to hit back hard if he tries anything this time. The Chinese are far less likely to get in the way, diplomatically or militarily, than they might have been in the past.

    A consumation devoutly to be wished, but rather unlikely. We are more likely to wag a finger at him. The South Koreans are in total fear, and did nothing after recent shellings and a sinking of a warship. We ought to send a nuke his way, and get rid of the problem forever, if he does anything military, but the administation is full of wimps. Drone strikes galore against individuals, but nothing major. That's my predicition, anyway.

    No. It's not in his interest to turn Seoul into "a sea of fire" as he states. It looks like he is trying to calm down internal strife as to solidify his leadership. What's interesting is that more people here are concerned about the new law regarding mini-skirts than the possibility of war.

    With the mass starvation and fierce oppression in his country, it is going to be impossible for this fascist dictator to invade South Korea and turn it into a "sea of fire". Where would the available manpower come from since most North Koreans are malnourishedicon_question.gif

    N. Korean will attack U.S. because Americans are blind and stupid to know the truth going on around the world.

    For all the faults of the western world, North Korea is a vile totalitarian regime that tortures dissenters, fails to feed its people and routinely makes ridiculous and violent threats to get attention. The history of American-North Korean relations is a litany of wild threats screaming followed by attention followed by aid and concessions. There's no reason to doubt that it isn't the same this time.

    So is it real? I very much doubt it. In any war, North Korea would be eradicated instantly (with much loss of life), toppling the regime and either ending with North Korea becoming part of China or South Korea. The people in charge are crazy for sure, but not so willing to give up their lives and the status quo that they will start a real war.

    It's also important to remember that North Korea wants reunification...on their terms. So it really doesn't make sense to destroy South Korea or start a war with the US since it will make it unbelievably hard to reunify under such circumstances.
