when is the poo really going to hit the fan over there in North Korea???

I haven't heard results, but according to the link there was supposed to be a new UN Council vote on additional sanctions and more threats in response to these votes from North Korea.

What do you guys know and think?

I think they are just banging their drums to see what they can get. They have no capability to strike the US.

dear leader may be that crazy... i don't think his military commanders are. i think you'd see a coup if he actually decided to launch.


I do worry about them selling the tech though... that's the biggest concern imo.

south korea couldn't deal with the refugees... from what i understand, they aren't really interested in re-unification or war... they just want NK to leave them alone. I don't think you see SK start anything because they have FAR more to lose.

totally agree.

I'm sure they sit quietly and cheer when UN votes for these sanctions....knowing that if the North farts, there will be international actions taken. Kind of sucks to be South Korea...like living next door to a bunch of hooligans that the cops are afraid to deal with.

The only reason my wife's family left SK was out of fear of what NK would do in the future.

Her dad left a better gig there to come here.

Everybody involved wants things to stay the same...which requires rhetoric from all parties, some minor skirmishes, and sadly the every now and again famine in NK.
