I think it's rather funny how the entire world gets so worked up about such a small country. This has been going on for as long as I can remember and I can't stop laughing at it, it's like watching a game of chess that ended in a remise a long time ago

Very muted press coverage considering all the headlines that the threats that North Korea spewed building up to it received, I still believe this whole situation will eventually end in tears.

Unlikely as it may be, a country threatening to carry out a nuclear strike on another country isn't regarded as all that funny by world leaders for some reason.

Yet I think everyone is fully aware that when someone actually pushes the red button all life on this planet will simply cease to exist. There is absolutely nothing to be gained from an all out nuclear war and I think that is something even the most retarded world leaders should be able to understand. North Korea is just dicking around and by all means let them. I can't see how anyone can take a country so small seriously if they have even the slightest understanding of the human condition.

Edit: If Kefka Palazzo from Final Fantasy 6 would become a world leader, then I would start to worry

It's precisely that reasoning that makes NK such a threat.

Would the US risk destroying the world if NK dropped a nuke on South Korea ?
I'm not sure sure they would.

We all saw the negative reaction from the "Highway of Death" in the first Iraq War so if the US annihilates the entire of North Korea in retaliation for a single nuclear attack on the South I can imagine the world would be up in arms about it.

If Tanzania or Omen suddenly threatened to drop a nuke the entire world would go nuts. It's not so much that it's a small country my friend, but it's what they have. People still fear nuclear conflict and rightly so. One well place Patriot Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile can wipe out a city the size of Moscow and surrounding suburbs in one go.

Just saying, it's no joke

Personally though I'm waiting for China to just One-Two them and drop there stupid asses into there ever growing influence. Seriously, idk how they even tolerate these guys in charge, let alone support them.
