You do this to keep the charitable contributes flowing.

They shut them off, you do something dumb, accept olive branch....

this isn't the first time this has happened.

Fact is NOBODY involved wants the status quo changed...sadly.

It's true. And their esteemed leader isn't nuts either he is probably smart as poo. Same with Ahmadinejad.

Fwiw, it actually does matter, quite a bit.

-Critical area of the world with a good portion of the worlds economy might there. A war in the vicinity could send the world into a another recession.

-Several US allies in the vicinity of an unpredictable leadership that has already launched or tried to launch attacks on its neighbor. And has access to nuclear weapons.

Most importantly, lots of people could be killed especially if nukes are used (including some of the 20 thousand plus US troops in South Korea, with more in Japan and Okinawa).

of course, events in Korea pale in comparison to the daily debate over which side has more foolish voters, democrats or republicans. Or who will be more impacted by voter id laws, the 10 people who committed voter fraud, or the 11 people who don't have an id or any of the other discussions currently ongoing. ;)

Fwiw, I imagine China is quite pissed at them, but I think the amount of influence the Chinese really have is extremely limited. Other than threatening to cut off trade, there isn't much they can do. And cutting off trade will likely make things worse.

I actually made this to hear what DD had to say...

Idk what their end game is, but its not good.

Everyone says they're not worried about NK, but NK may just get so desperate they do something really, really stupid that starts an out-of-control situation.

I think the only country you have to worry about that has nukes is the only one that used them on a civilian population.

Very little chance buscuit. We really have nothing to worry about from a nuclear or traditional conflict with NK. They would have to have the technology of a superpower to figure out how to sneak a nuke anywhere near our borders.

What you might worry about is technological terrorism and espionage. Like disable major parts of our power grid for an extended period of time using viruses or actual targeted individual attacks.

Or whatever.

the only reason we did that is because we got there first.

I'm not concerned at all about them attacking us... I was thinking more about Japan or SK.

Sneak a nuke out on a boat or something...

If they go completely off their rocker, there are things to worry about. Nuking our bases in SK, or putting a nuke in a old sub and exploding it under a Carrier fleet. Or putting one in a cargo ship and exploding it in the Straits of Hormuz.. There are several terrible scenarios that could be imagined, if they decide to risk annihilation.

I remember reading a book several years ago in which the Russians initiated a strike on the US by exploding three nukes a few miles off the West coast. Caused a mile high radioactive tsunami to slam into California. I don't know if that would actually happen or if NK could pull something like that off, but they think outside the box, they could think of ways to hurt us. Of course, in response they would cease to exist. Which is why I don't think it will happen. They are nuts, but probably not that nuts.

    • I have to put what others think and ask for help. My mom has been in the hospital for 32 days with no end insight. My dad, my sister and I have been with mom everday especially dad since she fell ill March 22. The medical bills are starting to come in and dad will need help. My sister and I have lost out on money from this but we are going to be okay. Dad's fed insurance will run out soon for what is going to be paid for. He is okay for personally due to having numerous hours saved from working at Cherry Point but the medical expenses are going to be astronomical. March 22 dad took mom to urgent care which tested positive with A and B flu. Her vitals were bad at CCHC so they called an ambulance to send her to Carolina East hospital. Dad was told this, so he went met her there in the ER. They waited 3 hours until they were seen by a doctor who then did not do anything else besides give mom 2 Motrin to take and him saying so she was sent to the ER with just the flu like no x rays nor anything else performed. No tamiflu, no nothing. Dad called CCHC begging for help, for tamiflu which they finally wrote out a prescription for mom. Dad had a family friend to pick up the tamiflu for them since mom was not good enough to be left by herself. For over a day her fever was 103.8. Every 4 to 6 hours dad altered between tylenol and ibuprofen to get her fever down. March 26 fever broke and she started to get a little better. She plateaued Monday and started to regress Tuesday and then Wednesday even more with a terrible cough nonstop which he was going to take her back to the doctors on Thursday. Thursday morning dad calls me at 645am to meet him at the hospital in which I did. Mom did not recognize me anf she looked like death. Thank God no one was in the ER at Vidant at the time. She was taken in instantly. Come to find out she was suffering a heart attack then the x rayed her to find both lungs filled with pneumonia severely. Then as intubation happened and all to her into ICU she went into full shock. She was on heavy sedation for 21 days before having a trach performed. She has suffered many set backs from coming off of sedation. Delirium and having the life team to come in. I have seen my mom on the edge of passing more than my fair share. Then come to find out ARDS stage 3 has hit mom and has slowed her recovery. She is at 20% lung capacity and pulmonary fibrosis is slowly setting in. Either it will be severe or mild but her lungs are still adjusting. Either way the doctor at New Bern ER did not properly treat mom and she now has a death sentence due to negligence. I need a recommendation for a malpractice lawyer. I need advise in general. I do not know who to turn too or how to handle this because I have never gone through this before. I have some connections I have made work that I will be exercising tomorrow. Please help in any form. PM or whatever. Huddle I ask humbly. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers. Cherry Point told my dad to take as long as needed and that they will help him some but he will need more than that. My sis started a go fund me.  https://www.gofundme.com/3povwn4 Thank you to all who read this.
