What on Earth does North Korea pretend with all of its latest nuclear BS?

They might have a big army but without the technology it's totally useless. I mean, Kim Jong-un wants to be taken seriously but he's a total joke for the world now, I hope he isn't stupid enough to bring all the innocent disgraced people in his country to death.

It's not "latest" by any means... it's going on for decades

Well yeah but they've been much more attention-whorish than normal over the past few months

Not that surprising, they have a new president and I imagine he's trying to flex some muscle, though that whole show may be meant for internal use mostly... it's difficult to discern what exactly is happening there, since not much news comes out.

I wouldn't call it BS, haven't they already done nuclear tests?

They are a very bad regime that needs to be taken down along with Iran and Israel.

The leader is so young but he has plenty military power to back him.

They have some long range missiles too, very dangerous regime.

Re: What on Earth does North Korea pretend with all of its latest nuclear BS?

Its a genuinely serious threat. America wont do anything though, unless there is direct provocation, or an attack on South Korea or Japan. However, America will wish to avoid this at all costs, because technically and ideologically, China sides with their communist comrades of the North. Plus China enjoy having a communist puppet state separating their borders from American bases in South Korea.

Basically, the North don't have genuine ballistic capability at the moment, but they are a nuclear state which is something to be very concerned about. The real issue is with China though, who publically condemn their testing and agree with the UN sanctions yet continue to trade goods and send aid to DPRK.

Potential nightmare situation developing.

Well, China could say pretty much the same, USA is having a puppet country to hold their bases near Chinese borders I guess status quo will drag for quite a bit more.

And while China is sending aid, the West has imposed sanctions, in the hope that it will topple the regime. Which hasn´t worked for the last 50 years and which has allowed the north Korean ´supreme leaders´ to stifle dissenting opinions in the country by pointing to the ´obviously evil, envious and imperialist west´.

Lessening the sanctions would take away the stick they use to beat the people with and alleviate the grave hunger issues in the country.

Since they're not sitting on oil, nothing will happen unless they actually launch an attack.

Re: What on Earth does North Korea pretend with all of its latest nuclear BS?

Thinking totally cynically in in a utilitarian way, an attack might do good on the North Koreans in the long run... because it would justify smashing the current regime and the people could perhaps start to see an increase in their standard of living in the long run.

Of course I don't actually hope a war would happen, it would cause a lot of grief and casualties.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal
