It would be a few of their million, not us or our allies.   I'm betting at most NK can hurt maybe 20K people outside of it's border.

I think their control over the country is weakening and they fear the commoners finally revolt.  Having the devil aka the US attack them would be the best possible thing for them to secure power.  But if we ignore them and they continue to build nukes, we'll be screwed then too.

I would not at all be opposed to tax dollars going to finding and arresting whoever did that. It was incredibly stupid and could cost thousands of lives. Probably not, but still - just a stupid, stupid idea and they'd know that if they followed the news at all. The US government doesn't think anything will happen, but they're still on full alert because it MIGHT. That is reason enough not to poke the insane, starving grizzly bear with a stick.

The unfortunate reality of it is, whether or not it causes an incident, it's going to have repercussions. I would be quite surprised if we don't see new legislation to even further censor or limit internet access once things cool down. THANKS OBANON.

I think this particular hack was badly timed with bad content and won't do anything positive - which, given some of the skills needed to pull this off, is a waste.

Depends on how involved China wants to get. And I know the day after NK's last nuke test, a couple hours before the State of the Union, Ruski bombers were intercepted circling Guam. Interesting timing; could be waiting for an opportunistic moment with forces tied up in the East.

Crap, that one is not dated but if you GIS around a little bit, you'll turn up that it was on either Feb 12 or 13, same day or after Un's last test (timezone depending, too lazy to figure it)

No problem. There's also some buzz about a sub going undetected in the Gulf of Mexico in August of last year but I think I'm not sure how legit that is. It seems to be spread across a lot of both reputable and less reputable sources. Can't say whether it's confirmation bias or not, but it's worth a look at.

Except NK isn't the meathead.  If anyone is, it's the US, and NK is the scrawny rich kid running his yap about his leet taekwondo skills that would take down the meathead with a single kick.  Pointing and laughing is a perfectly acceptable response in such a situation.

Yep.  This was not a good idea.  I suspect it breaks some international law too.

Aside, I think Un is being set up by his advisors.  I think he is being advised that this is what his father and grandfather did to make their mark in the world community.  I think an internal coup has been planned to really make this guy look out of control.  At some point in time Kim Jong-Un will be arrested or killed. His highest trusted people can see how the South Koreans are living in this new world order.  They've got to be jealous and downright pissed off.
I think Un has another week or so of power before he is eliminated from within.

I think IIRC it originated from some of KJI's propaganda that was poorly Engrished out to read "North Korea is Best Korea" and someone thought it hilarious so it became a meme. Not sure if that picture was the picture on the original propaganda or if someone thought it would be lulzy to add a colorful pose with it. Not positive but that's the story as I remember.

I don't believe they really have nukes, I doubt their "conventional" missiles would work well enough to do much damage, and their army, though the best-fed section of the non-ruling classes, is still a bunch of puny runts with shabby and outdated equipment that's really only good for holding down their own hungry and unarmed people. They couldn't fight off an invasion from Madagascar let alone France.

The only reason South Korea hasn't overran them already is Russia & China woudn't like it -- and the US is afraid of those countries. But NK's historic allies have been getting tired of carrying them for a while and pretty soon might be amenable to a reshuffle. South Korea and China have been getting along pretty well lately and have been making some beautiful money together.

Seoul's got a population of ~10 Million.  Even with all the shelter and evacuation training that I'm sure the residents have been doing for decades, more than 20K are going to get hurt purely from the conventional weapons that the Nork's have pointed at them.

Snark aside, that most likely is including a large amount of small, outboard motor driven craft.  Not really that impressive on their own, but if you have 20 of them loaded up with explosives and bearing down on one of your destroyers, it only takes one getting through your perimeter to make for a bad day.

2013-04-04 11:47:33 PM  
Here's my theory: There is an internal power struggle going on in BK, or maybe even within KJU himself. The new insane threats and aggressive brinkmanship started right after KJU was hanging out with Dennis Rodman, having a good old time watching the Harlem Globe Trotter and partying it up in his palace with with Rodman, and the Vice crew. He was educated in in Switzerland, he has a soft spot for the Chicago Bulls. I think he's drawn towards some facets of Western culture and secretly or openly wishes BK had some more of that. So either he is conflicted within himself, drawn towards Western culture and then feeling guilty and and hating that part of himself and then lashing out very agressively to prove (to himself and country) that he's not on the side of the imperialist dogs. OR, other forces within BK made note of KJU hanging out with Rodman and the Vice crew and being a little too comfortable with them, and those other forces started applying pressure in various ways. Maybe making KJU feel threatened. Either way dissonance always precedes a new paradigm.
