Its the smallest guy in the Bar trying to pick a fight with ANY of the bigger guys.

Its a "no win" for the bigger guys, so they try to avoid it

If he can draw one of them into a fight there are only two outcomes:
Bigger guy is a jerk, a bully and an asshole for beating up a smaller guy.
Or
The smaller guys wins(not likely for North Korea, but on the table, lol).

So no win for the bigger guys letting the smaller guy draw them in, best choice is to let him run his mouth until he gets tied of it.

If the smaller guy pulls a gun and starts shooting then its an EQUAL contest/fight, no small guy/big guy anymore.
Like the old saying, "God created man but Smith and Wesson made all men equal", size no longer matters

And if we believe our current philosophy of freedom and innocent until proven guilty, then we can't arrest, restrain or "blow away" a moron who is threatening to commit a crime

So let him talk and threaten, can't win being drawn into that, just like all the other small guys at ISIS, can't win the fight until the people in the Bar(media) all ignore them, and then they will just go away, or die.

Fixed it for ya.

If they don't make noise nobody would know or care anything about them. A sneak attack on a military installation will not get them the kind of attention they want, they can't be so stupid as to actually try it.

The media loves to keep stiring the pot, kind of like the annoying guy that keeps trying to set up the little guy with a chip on his shoulder and the big guy that doesn't because he wants to see crap hit the fan.

I really figured North Korea would launch a missile at Guam, and try to provoke the US in to doing something. They're planned trajectory would have put the missile over Japan, but out of Japan's airspace, and then splash down outside of Guam's legal waters. It's like he's trying to provoke Trump to throw the first punch.

I'm tired of the bullshit. It's not just N. Korea either. Iran has been flying drones dangerously close to our Navy ships.

Hell, some guy just landed a smaller hobby drone on a British aircraft carrier. I think anything that fly's within so many yards of any military ship should be shot down.

No guarantee he would be "home" lol

Not the "American way" either, unless it's a Central or South America dictator, lol
Ah the "good old days", wheres the CIA when you really need them.

Jong-un is a waste of skin, he denies freedom of speech and many other freedoms from his countries population that he himself insists on from the rest of the world.
The "right" to speak your mind is a fundamental freedom we sometimes take for granted.
He expects that is his right but denies it to others

"Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves" - Abe Lincoln

I think the world press should give him the same "freedom of speech" that he allows in his country, none.
Judged by your own laws, a dictators worse nightmare, lol.

We just need to assasinate the NK leadership from the top down all of them at the same time so there is nobody left to run their government. Of course I fly a Jolly Roger on my boat and my truck super imposed over a pot leaf that says "Government can kiss my ass" so what do I know

I watched a video on the Rothschild family and was surpised to learn there are only 3 countries in the world that do not have a Rothchild controlled banking sysem.

In the year of 2000 there were seven countries without a Rothschild owned or controlled Central Bank:

Afghanistan
Iraq
Sudan
Libya
Cuba
North Korea
Iran

As of 2011 we are down to those three:

Cuba
North Korea
Iran

http://www.theeventchronicle.com/fin...central-bank/#

With the latest natural disasters it looks like Cuba is on the ropes.

North Korea suddenly becomes crazy...

Iran is struggling with war....

It' won't be long until the stage is set for that One World Government, one currency, one RFID chip per customer...

As long as that government/currency is ours, i dont have to much of an issue.

However, the world is simply to different for anything like this to take place.

Theres no way some of these shithole eastern/mideast countries would conform to western norms. My guess at that point they would unify (which, they would if i meant preserving things like sharia law), and possibly end up with 2 governments, and at that point nukes would start flying and then camels replacing cars would be the least of our worries.

No easy fix for Korea. Eliminating the current leadership will not gain the US any favor in the world. No bargaining to be had with them. Embargo all you want but the people that are actually causing the problems will still eat well.

The recent flight of a B-1 escorted by F-15's over their country probably wasn't the brightest move either. Like we are taunting them to make the first move...
