>' I think China would opt to take direct and massive action against them rather than sit by while the US does so.  It's their sphere of influence and they will defend it by whatever means necessary. Letting the US go to war on their border in 2013 is unthinkable for them ' ..................... now this is one i didn't think of and a big one- the chinese are hardly likely to LIKE having ramped up US forces on their border, hell they want the Japanese navy out their sphere! and the US navy too; they made a new cruise missile to try to keep the ships farther away from their sphere; hell they don't even want a ramped up Soeul Koreans on their damn border; so they have at least as big a vested interest in this whole thing yeah?

this goes back to my first post, I have never, never in my life heard a country talk like this,

'
Britain is one of several European countries including Russia to receive a letter regarding the safety of its embassy in Pyongyang, as North Korea moved two mid-range missiles to its east coast.
The Foreign Office said on Friday that North Korea had warned Britain that it could not protect foreign embassies after April 10 in the event of a conflict.
A spokesperson said Britain had been advised that "from April 10, the North Korean government would be unable to guarantee the safety of embassies and international organisations in the country in the event of conflict". '

15APR is a national holiday, founding of the moderns state, or some previous Dear Leader's birthday. I am sure it is on the 'net, but don't care to look it up.

North Korea may be deliberately causing the US to shift its resources. Remember, they have a pact with two other rogue countries.

No, we have no right to just decide to kill the leader of another nation. Kim Jong Un is just trying to establish himself as North Korea's new leader.

Not all of North Korea's demands seem outlandish, one is asking for a peace treaty between them and the U.S. I suppose there is some reason why this is bad, but I don't know what it is, and have to wonder why something like this couldn't be given to Kim Jong Un. He is a new, young leader, right now he is trying to make himself look big in the eyes of his people, give him something small, then work with him to improve relations. The threats would probably end.

I know Kim, all the KIms, want everything vs the US because they see it as the great satan, and Soeul is just some puppet, and they would have steamrolled except for US, and it props them, 'the big boys' if they have everything vs US- but, and it's a big but- I say, ok I'm the SecState now, that US should make everything NK be with Soeul, we should have all our relations thru them, treaty with Soeul, trade with Soeul, DMZ with Soeul, because the Koreas are Asia, and NK simply MUST get the idea that they are totally isolated and have no future without joining in with Asia, part of Asia, that they are there, physically there, and Asia is their world, and US is not Asia. they must make nice with Soeul just as with Peking, just as with Tokyo, and Manila, and Singapore et al , or else there is just nothing for them- and US must, thru Soeul, make this plain to them.

The problem I have with the 'it's for domestic consumption' argument is that everything I've been able to find suggests that the DRPK has a media so tightly controlled that it makes 1984 look like a liberal love in by comparison. This is a place where people have speakers built into every house, every office, every building everywhere in order to blast propaganda 24/7.

Why on earth would they need to actually DO any saber rattling instead of just using their massive internal propaganda machine to SAY they've done the saber rattling. The average schmoe in North Korea doesn't exactly have unrestricted access to CNN.

Maybe enough of the population has started to question their propaganda, whether it be in public or privately where the government can discover that they are questioning things.  After a point, talk becomes irrelevant, and you have to start showing some action, some real saber rattling.

Yep. You at least need some kind of real win. Even if they spin it to make them look better, part of it will be true, so they have at least some fact to feed to the people.

Ya know I have a tendency to trust you and the links that you provide.  I don't know where that link leads but right now I'm posting and reading from work and when I tried to your link my agency put up a big ol' sign that said NO, you're not allowed to go there from here.  Maybe you didn't know that your link might be a problem, maybe you did.  Anyway, I hope it was just a warning and I don't get chewed out.

I'm not really sure what that's a picture of. It's an Asian man with binoculars, looking over a wall outdoors at something, which then cuts to a shot of what looks like a young woman in a white top and short pink skirt, shaking her hips. However, from the motion of the skirt, it may in fact be a man. So yeah. Not sure what's up with that. Given Baldy's IT reaction, I've marked it as potentially NSFW. More likely to be a response to ompldr.org than the specific image, of course, but best to not risk others getting in trouble.
