Apparently, this missile went far enough to hit Guam, and it could certainly annihilate Japan and S. Korea. We may see a 65 yr-old stalemate be resolved in less than a day.

 

I'd love to see what would happen if a country, maybe USA, destroyed one of those missile tests from NK. It would either make Fatty Man back up or kickstart a conflict.

Well it would be incredibly risky. Or should I say risqué?

The missile doesn't have to annihilate either country, and it won't. They would need several warheads to land in order to annihilate anything. 

But all of that is useless, because the real danger would come from EMP attacks. Imagine all your power and networking infrastructure suddenly go down. All your eletronics becoming waste. Hospitals, rescue services, finance, everything f*cked up instantly. That's where the real danger lies.

I'm not convinced they've even miniaturized the warheads in a sufficient manner for accurate delivery.  But being a casual observer of these matters, I wouldn't bet on it either way.

 

On a side note, with China being only a nominal ally of NK, one must wonder what kind of access Beijing really has to the NK propaganda/information apparatus.  Im sure it's severely limited since China also delegitimizes the supreme leader by giving lip service to reunification.  Chinese influence on the North's civilian information is probably far superior to that of the US atm.  Perhaps the US can lean on Beijing to use that?  China has much to lose when the crash of global financial markets ends their multi decade run of growth due to an invasion on the peninsula.

I am not sure what your point is; if this to share something funny, then this isn't the place.

If you are trying to suggest some Russians sympathises or support North Korea, then I don't think this comic is supportive of that argument. Or at least, not enough.

Russia's government may not strike the same aggressive tone as the US, but they certainly do not approve of North Korea's actions. Like China, they prefer the status quo. Tensions are bad for business, m'kay? Well, tensions in Korea, anyway.

While that cartoon isn't very funny or relaxing, it does point at the problems of the US and Trumps' determination to destroy everything possible.

I don't think Kim Jong Un is really that powerful or intimidating.  It was clear the nukes the DPRK were developing are purely defensive, so having him portrayed as the big man isn't really true.  In reality, Trump should have opened the door and run smack into a brick wall, with possibly a little peephole for Un to stare through!

 

It's an interesting (Russian) cartoon and a fresh perspective on the debate, but offers very little we didn't already know / suspect.

Is the correct answer...

 

@liaz6212: Just to clarify that in Debates and Discussion, the expectation is a little more thought and content, than what may fly in General Chat.

I feel very sorry for North Korea, they're not our enemies and we're not theirs, they're victims of their own leaders and nothing more. I hope I live to see the day when that country is finally set free.

I'd suggest settling in with a couple of beers because it's a long interview, but this fellow has some quality insights on the NK matter.  In fact, some of his forecasts have materialized since this interview was given back in 2015...
