War with North Korea
is a game of guessing
old history ~ 2006 …
I call it a case of premature ejaculation
White House calls N. Korea test a provocation
Denise thinks Bush has learned to descalate his military swagger ... me i don’t know ... perhaps all Bush has learned is to hire people like Tony Snow .
... North Korean economy ... It continues to fall apart, and more North Koreans are unhappy about that. Worse yet, more North Koreans are finding out how badly they have been screwed by their leaders. Meanwhile, North Korean officials engage in even more bizarre behavior. For example, food and fuel supplies sent to North Korea have been halted, not to force North Korea to stop missile tests or participate in peace talks, but to return the Chinese trains the aid was carried in on. In the last few weeks, the North Koreans have just kept the trains, sending the Chinese crews back across the border. North Korea just ignores Chinese demands that the trains be returned, and insists that the trains are part of the aid program. It's no secret that North Korean railroad stock is falling apart, after decades of poor maintenance and not much new equipment. Stealing Chinese trains is a typical loony-tune North Korean solution to the problem. If the North Koreans appear to make no sense, that's because they don't. Put simply, when their unworkable economic policies don't work, the North Koreans just conjure up new, and equally unworkable, plans. The Chinese have tried to talk the North Koreans out of these pointless fantasies, and for their trouble they have their trains stolen. How do you negotiate under these conditions? No one knows. The South Koreans believe that if they just keep the North Korean leaders from doing anything too destructive (especially to South Korea), eventually the tragicomic house of cards up north will just collapse. Not much of a plan, but so far, no one's come up with anything better.
Pyongyang's foreign minister released a blustery statement declaring that it had the right to develop and test its weapon.
"Our military will continue with missile launch drills in the future as part of efforts to strengthen self-defense deterrent," the statement said Thursday. "If anyone intends to dispute or add pressure about this, we will have to take stronger physical actions in other forms."
knowledgeable selective spending
Is collective economic action possible to stop armed conflict ? Should we all just introvert, mind our own business & build terrible weapons in defense in case someone else uses theirs' ?
…. so here we see what direct threats make happen.
Earlier, we reported on NBC’s claim that the U.S. military was preparing for a pre-emptive strike against North Korea, should they try to test a nuclear weapon in the near future.
Fox News and others are now reporting that the Pentagon is pushing back heavily against this claim.
… or does it matter … Kim Jong my listen to NBC, or twitter and not the pentagon or even #Trump.
So maybe #FakeNews starts this shooting war.
twitter search North Korea … #NorthKorea
HONG KONG — China warned on Friday that tensions on the Korean Peninsula could spin out of control, as North Korea said it could test a nuclear weapon at any time and an American naval group neared the peninsula in a show of resolve.
“The United States and South Korea and North Korea are engaging in tit for tat, with swords drawn and bows bent, and there have been storm clouds gathering,” China’s foreign minister, Wang Yi, said in Beijing, according to Xinhua, the state news agency.
The statement also denounced what it called the Trump administration’s “maniacal military provocations,” like threats of possible unilateral action coming from Washington and the deployment of warships in waters near the Korean Peninsula.
“Nothing will be more foolish if the United States thinks it can deal with us the way it treated Iraq and Libya, miserable victims of its aggression, and Syria, which did not respond immediately even after it was attacked,”

relative to #doing it is trial and error sans #consequences.
think it through first … might just save a step or two.
in this case it is just #voyerism as i will not be going to war one way or another.
so it is #grasping events … testing my own awareness of what #happens.
There is a difference between the right to defend & the excuses to bully & threaten. If he does have subs I suspect the Chicoms developed them.
