NK has the right to engage in self-defence.

America's "defence" spending consists of nothing but bullying other countries, invading their sovereignty, warmongering in the Middle East, etc. etc.

Aww, look at you. Do you want a sticker?

SO ISREAL AND 'MERIKUH are beating their chests like angry frothing-at-the-mouth, red-eyed, screaming animals over Iran.
Which so far has not had any nuclear tests. Iran denies it has nuclear weapons.

While North Korea is quietly performing tests to perfect their nuclear weapon capability. All while announcing it to the world.

OK.

Yes, OK.
Great job there, politicians. Perfect sense makes sense.

I trust you all with 'MERIKUH's future. The world had total confidence in you all.

But Iranians are swarthy middle-easterners! Don't you know that they can't be trusted!

How has China reacted?

That's actually a relevant question. China gives a ton of aid to NK and had said they would cut that aid if NK tested another nuke. We don't know yet what China's response will be.


I know, the jpeg was China's likely reaction. On CNN they also said China's reaction would be hugely important, which I found unusual since the western media usually puts the white house at the forefront of everything.


Quite frankly, I don't think that China wants a freaking nuclear war on its doorstep. If they DON'T step in with some harsh action here I'll be very surprised. The reason that China's action is extremely important is because IIRC they're the only nation that really doesn't have much of any sanctions against them. If they begin to cut off North Korea, then who knows what'll happen. Also from what I can gather, China DIDN'T want North Korea to go ahead with these tests, so this is kind of like a slap in the face to China.

Also of worry is starting a nuclear arms race with Japan and South Korea. That would not be good.

NPR said that we are "strongly condemning" this ... but we aren't going to do anything... They said because NK doesn't have the ability to strap it to a rocket yet. Ok? Well how long will that take? Do we just sit by and do nothing until they DO have that ability? NK have spoken out many times against the US and even made a video of them nuking us. So should we just continue to not do anything?

What do you propose they do? Short of a large scale war, there really isn't much else you can do.

The DPRK has sabre rattled for years. Right now, things are nowhere near as bad as they were about two years ago when actual conflict was a possibility. It also probably helps that they have been somewhat open about the nuclear test (they told everyone about this for a week now) which is better than the "WTF?!!?!?!?!" during the last two tests.

Who cares? The nuclear holocaust won't be until October 23, 2077 anyway.
