I hope there are some senior military advisors in north korea who are willing to explain to their idiot leader how badly this is going to turn out for them if they follow through on it, and how many civilians will die before the dust settles. Sure, they've got a million man army and a bunch of artillery but they've also got a flying scrapyard to provide air coverage and enough gasoline to drive across town once. This isn't what you want in your corner in modern warfare.

Kim Jong Un acts like a man whose 30 years old going on 12. Seems to have inherited it from his father. Maybe immaturity runs in the family. It's like children playing with matches. If the US acts normal and steady, hopefully this will amount to nothing more than the mouth that roared.

The little overweight pigmy in Pyongyang has a few things to learn.

It does sound silly that Kim threatens the U.S. However, I do wonder if he might make a move on South Korea. That would be interesting. A million man army storming south could be pretty bloody. And the big question, what would we do?

It's hard to take his threats seriously. Everyone knows that to attack Alaska from Asia you have to control Kamchatka first.

Might be a good thing, so let him have at it: Many will most likely die, but then it will just be Korea, not North and South, and the people of North will finally know what they have been missing out on for all these years!

Such an unstable part of the world! North Korea has suffered from incompetent, selfish leadership for so many years. The people there have no idea what the truth is about the rest of the world, and about their isolation that has been caused by their leaders. My daughter has a friend over there teaching English (So. Korea), and she also plans to go teach English there in the next few months. As a mother, it is a very scary thing for me to imagine her over there. I hope there is a lot of behind-the-scenes diplomacy going on.
