It's mostly just for propaganda purposes to show his people that they are a powerful nation. it's like flexing your muscles to show off. the leader of north korea is no angel, but american sanctions only hurt poor north korean citizens. do not believe all the crap you see on t.v.

I don't watch tv news, but I guess I don't have reliable sources for information on North Korea. I mean, I am not surprised by anything anymore. It's just the stories I have heard from North Korea are crazy. Did you see when Lucy Liu went there? If so, how believable do you think that was?

Your right, people forget it took a 50 nation coalition to invade a weak, divided and piss poor iraq army. North korean armed forces are well trained and well armed and backed by China.

Its not just that, my main concern would be that they actually launch a nuke, which in itself may not pose that great a threat (it might be shot down mid flight), but it might encourage other nations to join in on the fun. A chain reaction of launching nukes wouldnt be fun.

I understand the lack of sources. That is true. But if we use common sense we can connect the dots. America invaded korea in the 1950's and NEVER left. This issue is a civil war between North and South. Remember vietnam? after America left it eventually was united. The threat of American Military on North Korea's border has made the north even more radicalized. And don't think china likes american troops in asia. imagine chinese troops stationed in america. you see the irony?

Yeah, I don't see the U.S. tolerating another country's armed forces setting up in the U.S. But the U.S. isn't practicing with nuclear bombs.

Ha! Yes. That was bad. But what I am trying to ascertain is whether or not North Korea is really a threat. Do you think North Korea has the ability to set off a nuclear bomb big enough to cause a problem?
