I am with you,
Like Iran with their stealth fighter they are both FOS.
I have it on very good authority that China does not support NK. There is no open border between China and NK. The border between the two countries is a desolate place.
China has grown tired of NK asking for more and more assistance and implying that NK helped defeat Japan during WWII.
3? We lost almost 100,000 KIA in that one.
Meanwhile, Senior Senate Republicans were seen noshing with Barack Obama and lecturing Teaparty senators on protocol.
You are 100% correct. If they do it, the delivery would be by boat, probably via a container ship or sub.
They would be absolutely insane to do this. The problem is their leader is absolutely insane. The solution is not difficult. Smoke the little bastard off the face of the earth and call it a North Korean atomic accident.
xin lỗi about that!
It was somewhat easier to sleep when adults with US military allegiances ran Washington...
Hey, the Obama Administration is taking the obvious response to nuclear proliferation to multiple radical, terrorist states by cutting our nuclear arsenal to a proposed 300 devices.
You can sleep easy now!
They could barely put a toater sized object into a wobbly orbit.
They expect us to belive they are working ICBMs?
It’s a good thing for them that America doesn’t believe in hitting first.
One eye open, FRiend!
No rest for the weary... we’re here for the duration.
Here, there, or in the air.
they can’t make it to virginia. they could maybe hit the northwest if everything went right.
it’s not open, but stuff goes back and forth and a certain number of people go back and forth via checkpoints. some are able to cross illegally. saw a documentary devoted to the border topic.
I've been saying that since the first "fizzle", their results are nothing but a bluff. A chemical explosion of sufficient magnitude, spiked with the appropriate isotopes and noble gasses is a lot cheaper then actually going nuclear. Do you remember a couple of years ago, the Norks had an "industrial accident" that damn near erased one of their cities? A train loaded with "fertilizer" exploded as it was passing through a rail yard. There were rumors that it was sabotage and the plot was to take out Kimm the elder who's private train was scheduled to pass through the same rail yard. Kimm's train was delayed. I have satellite pictures of before and after and they show the city as decimated.
I'm guessing they bought the technology from the Pakistanis but couldn't afford to follow through with producing the hardware. A gun type design is simple, crude and easy to build but it is large and heavy, requiring a heavy bomber to carry it. If they faked a plutonium implosion device it would lend credibility to their threats of a missile attack.
The Red Chinese would give the Norks the whole package if they wanted them to have it. The Chinese will not do so because they do not want the crazy Koreans to start WWIII just when they have achieved economic ascendancy over the US and their "Manchurian candidate" is gutting our military. Why go to war and spoil all that real estate when all they need do is wait and the apple will fall right off the tree into their hands.
Well, guess we’ll have to re-target a few of our missles toward North Korea..heh. There are those in this world that talk silly talk and this man is one of those. I’m sure that he knows the consequences so this is just a stupid statement by a dictator trying to get a rise out of his countrymen. Good luck with that...
Ah heck, in a huff we could always transfer a few smaller nukes to South Korea just to be sure...but why bother. Distance is not the problem - attitude is.
Reflection off some local discontinuity in rock density?
Yeah, it’s akin to Keith Olberman that he’s going to win a debate point against Rush Limbaugh if he isn’t careful...
The Dear Leader's private train had passed through the same switchyard hours (or maybe minutes) before the explosion.
So do we, shithead.
