    Considering many of their ballistic missiles are mobile and well hidden (e.g. look at that picture of the TEL from the other day), that virtually guarantees the need for the US to nuke every inch of North Korea to nullify their second and third strike capability. The fallout from that attack alone would likely be regarded as an attack on Russian and Chinese soil, necessitating their own response.

    A nuclear attack by America on North Korea would have severe ramifications for its neighbour and supporter China. The Chinese would be obliged to retaliate.

    Other than the fact that American nuclear weapons have irridiated their homeland and their population? Nah that seems like something you would let slip by...

    f**king idiot.

    I predicted this situation the moment Trump started acting like a d**k to China.
    Now both leaders are playing chicken, everyone is under the impression that NK is harmless which is fine but what if that changes?
    At some point China needs to yank the chain.

    These threads are so much better with Alien on ignore. It's like having a conversation with the adults after the toddler has been put to bed.

    North Korea is harmless to the moment they fire a nuclear missile. Then everything changes.

    Does anyone think the supreme leader is actually dumb enough to launch a first strike against anyone ?

    Personally I think he's not that dumb, he's just trying to wrangle concessions and thinks he needs a bargaining chip.

    We are talking about a nutter gene being repeatedly reproduced here as well as the perfect environment to produce a crazier son each generation.
    I think you're looking for the word crazy not dumb and I don't know if he'd do it without goading, but you know with a potato in the white house there who knows.

    You'd also look at who else is manipulating the situation.

    Trump threatens North Korea after US assesses they have miniaturized a nuclear warhead

    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump issued an extraordinary ultimatum to North Korea on Tuesday warning Pyongyang not to make any more threats against the United States or they will "face fire and fury like the world has never seen," during a photo op at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

    "North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen... he has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before," he said.

    Trump's harsh words come as US intelligence analysts have assessed that North Korea has produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead, according to multiple sources familiar with the analysis of North Korea's missile and nuclear program.

    It is not believed that the capability has been tested, according to the sources.

    This is not a consensus view from the entire intelligence community, one US official said. The Washington Post, which was first to publish details, reported that it was the analysis of the Defense Intelligence Agency.

    The US official familiar with the analysis of North Korea's missile and nuclear program says, in reference to North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un's boasts about the program, "we have to take him at his word and we need to be prepared to deal with it."

    This official said the 'assessment" is continuing to be refined and updated as more intelligence is collected.

    The officials all note that the evidence shows North Korea is making progress and the question is more about when not if North Korea is capable of launching a nuclear capable missile.

    Referring to Kim Jong Un, the official said this report needs to be taken seriously as "we've seen him moving forward" on the program with no indication he is turning back.

    US military commanders have long planned on the assumption that North Korea has a warhead.
