North Korea has been threatening massive attacks every day or two lately. Ripped off computer rendered footage of burning American cities, and threats to reduce Hawaii to cinders, while overwhelming South Korea with its enormous military.
Yet experts who analyze the threats note that North Korea may talk a good fight, but lacks the basic technology to even theoretically do many of the things it talks about in its “war plans.” Their best missiles aren’t even close to being able to hit the US mainland, and even landing a single hit on Guam or Hawaii would be a serious long-shot.
North Korea’s comparative lack of missile technology has been an important issue in recent years, with the Bush and Obama Administrations using the “threat” as a justification for huge spending on missile defense programs. Those missile defense systems don’t work, but luckily North Korea’s threat isn’t real either, so they sort of cancel each other out.
Even South Korea, though more realistically in range, doesn’t seem to be losing any sleep over the threats, with the public in the capital city of Seoul seeing the threats as empty and just the same old statements they make every so often.
Analysts say that North Korea could do considerable damage along the border with South Korea if a war did break out, but they also say that North Korea’s seeming inability to even feed their troops would mean any attempted invasion would break down pretty quickly.

The so-called experts "say" this or that, but we know S. Korea probably has been infiltrated by N. Korean spies/possible saboteur sleeper cells; there are many tunnels dug by the N. Korean army into the South. If anything goes down, watch as bridges explode miles from the battlefield, or the families of field commanders are taken hostage, or air base ammo dumps mysteriously explode.
The DPRK can't win a war, but it will go down swinging.
Nothing reveals the perfidity of US foreign policy more than the way N. Korea's military capabilities are down-played, while Iran's capabilities (which are are probably on par with N. Korea) are constatnly exaggerated by Israel and the US
So does a North Korean person look different from a South Korean person? How can we tell them apart?
North Korea is just a sideshow meant to distract the world from the fact that Sryia is about to be invaded. Why else would Russia put most of it's naval fleet for "manouvours" over the weekend? NK is friends with the Assad regime, so my guess would be they are trying to take pressure off of Syria at the UN and will evenually back down once Russia flexes it's muscles over Syrian incursions of foreign fighters. Just my observations based on common geo-political chess.
Yeh, this is almost certainly correct.
Suddenly we are faced with these hummugeous threats in Korea, which is being played up on the hour on Brritsh TV., which is clearly a diversion from Syria.
