      On The Brink of WWIII

      Unless you live in a car which has been crushed by an enourmous rock, you are aware of the current stand-off with North Korea. US intelligence suggests North Korea leading into a second round of Nuclear tests appointed for the 15th of April 2007. A scenario which may well lead into a US driven strike and inevitably the start of WWIII-- North Korea will not be told what to do, and the US has already established they will not stand for another display of nuclear missile tests.

      So is tomorrow the beginning of the end?

      No, 1953 was. Can kicked since, all the while Pyongyang research continues and advancements continue.

      I honestly do want America to be Great Again, but it should be done in stable way. We don't need global nutbars doing fightclub in an effort to leave their legacy for resume purposes.

      If Trump actually follows through, he basically ensures Seoul's destruction. I'm assuming Mattis is wise enough to choke up on his boss's leash to avoid watching east Asia annihilate itself.

      It's sad that WW3 might start because of the insecure fat guy with a funny haircut.

      Or by that North Korean guy.

      Good one. And his penchant for cognac and young girls.

      I think they've also proven they have the capability to strike Japan too.

      So many maybe scenarios here.

      You have to assume they are able to quickly and reliably deploy and launch said missiles with appropriate targeting and all the while managing to get them past any interceptors. Moreover, a move like that spells the end for North Korea, it is also a tertiary concern at best. The real damage is to Seoul, nothing you can do about that place in the event of open war. In the range of something like 12,000 heavy artillery pieces. So, the real question here is whether or not NK wants to keep pushing the envelope and forcing China to alienate them or whether or not they are going to start a war. I am not particularly concerned with their ability to reach the CONUS. They don't have a reliable missile for that, let alone with the throw capacity, let alone the expertise in miniaturization.

      Wouldn't be the first time the equivalent of a tweet did that.
