    ...for every time the North Koreans threatened the U.S.  They don't have nuclear warheads small enough to go onto their big, innacurate missiles yet.  So, what will they do?

      But I think that everybody, including the Chinese are just getting bored with North Korea.

      "so you are gonna nuke the west coast, yawn."

      "you are preparing for war, yeah OK."

      "so you are deploying cadres of cyber-warriors and counterfeiters to destroy the world economy, wait, didn't you do that in the last decade?  Oh nevermind, who cares?"

      They have played the crazy, brinksmanship card so many times that everyone is calling their bluff...and I guess we better hope it really is bluff...but really it's just too damn boring to worry about anymore.

    •  One fact that gets ignored with A-Bombs and (0+ / 0-)

      that is with them they are triggers for H-Bombs and with Multi-Megaton devices put in a ship and detonated close off-shore (and this isn't any secret I read about this method decades ago when the threat was the Cold War) the destruction would be immense.
