What do you think the outcome will be with
the present situation with North Korea?

Kim Jon-un seems to be a loose cannon and is capable of anything so it seems.

To fire a missile over Japan is surely an act of war, it must have been terrifying for those people in Japan.

Surely Russia and China need to do more than what they are doing now, if they don't I can only see a war breaking out and due to the weapons North Korea have(supposedly) it would be horrific.

What's your thoughts?


Grimsby and proud!

The thing is if we do nothing as sure is eggs are eggs the mental midget will launch a serious attack, and on that basis the time as come to take him and his regime out, I'd rather not see military action but this mad man needs stopping now before its to late.

Tempting as that may be it'd surely launch WWIII. If China's statements are anything to go by.

The alternative, if they have the control systems up to the job, can the US launch missiles over north Korea to land in that bit of sea between there and China?

The last missile that was fired at Japan landed 100 mile off their coast line and with this one firing over he is getting bolder and bolder. He is doing it for several reasons, one of them maybe to force negotiations, a bit of a gamble if that is right. The South Koreans could see it as an opportunity to unite North and South by removing Kim from office as he becoming a bit of a basket case internationally and a danger to everyone, would China rather see the South do something so aren't forced to intervene?

I suspect the Chinese are more worried about the prospect of a pro-Western reunited Korea on their doorstep than anything else. The Taiwan situation is bubbling under all the time so I don't expect any noises to come out of Beijing in support of regime change in the North.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

I see what you are saying Ian, I don't think the Chinese would say they would openly support regime change but more in secret wouldn't mind it. The Chinese will know everything Trump has said since he come to office and the attack he launched out of the blue in Syria later saying that base was the source of a chemical attack on civilians.

If one of these missiles fails and falls on Japan I don't the first thing on Trumps mind will be sanctions. Will the Chinese go to war, I would think they would rather avoid it.

Thing is, if Japan was actually attacked, North Korea would be flattened by the Yanks and they know it. The only others to suffer would be the tens of thousands killed in Seoul due to the thousands of dug in artillery pieces NK have pointed over the border. These could pump tens of thousands of shells over Seoul (a densely populated city) before they were disabled.

Now, the Kims might be murderous scumbags with not one jot of interest in the lot of their people and a hatred for the 'west' (nominally including their southern neighbours), but I don't think they are idiots. They can get away with sabre rattling actions such as the odd missile into the sea and an artillery exchange with SK once in a while, but know anything more serious is likely to lead to their extermination.

With this in mind, the only question is whether Trump is intelligent enough to listen to his military advisors and not attempt to launch an attack. The comparisons with Syria don't hold any basis whatsoever. Syria can't hurt anyone of interest to the west. Not so with NK who could do serious damage to SK, one of the world's most advanced and important economies. Any Korean war would almost certainly lead to a global recession, regardless of the loss of life on either side.

While the US keep having their show of force near North Korea,

The North will keep sending their missiles into the sea,

One is bound to go astray then that's when Trump will react,

God knows what the outcome will be if a full scale war erupts.
