North Korea's threats

So of course North korea has threatened military action against anyone trying to interefere with them developing nuclear weapons. They are planning to enrich uranium and weaponize all plutionium which can then be used in an atom bomb. What do you see as being the final outcome of this situation? Will North Korea back down, or will they launch a nuclear weapon at the US?

  • Hmmmm.... uneducated buzzed guess but yet one of wisdom would say, no! They will not launch anything on the U.S. because we need each other too much. Kind of like a disfunctional relationship. We are both powerful but we need each other.

  • What does KJI need us for? His COUNTRY might be in trouble if serious sanctions were put into affect (the ones being put through right now aren't) but I don't think HE will really care.

    Thats a big IF. NK is the baby of the chinese and the UN must enforce the sanctions so it will never happen. If we are going to do anything about NK we will have to act with a coalition of the willing. That would risk some severe repercussions.

  • The guy is a nut job and hates us so much I think he would launch. He knows Obama won't do anything if he does so he might just try it. Brush up on your Korean.

  • Anon :44, I agree that Kim Jong IL is a nutjob... but he knows if he launches a nuke at us, or anyone else, that the rest of the world will come over and monkey-stomp his ass back to the stone age. I hate to admit it, but the US has done it before...all he needs to do is look over the bit of ocean separating him from Japan. BTW, Japan has been the first to tell him that they will be at the front of that "monkey-stomping line". LOL

  • Not this year, and maybe not next but they will weaponize all their plutonium and they may hit US interests abroad or they may hti someone else. I am worried for everyone, not just us. I suggest to you people who think "oh they won't do anything" .... You better think again because Thats what most thought before 9-11
