What will happen if North Korea does throw the nuclear bomb?
Is anything being done about this? Should people of Texas evacuate?
No. People of Texas should stay where they are.
This is just an attempt by military corporations to scare the public into giving their war making corporations more tax money. Why does the American media always fall for this blatant bullshit?
If they do, they can expect to be hiroshimaed off the face of the earth.
It's Kim Jung Un trying not to get his fat ass canned by the military. It probably won't lead anywhere but I worry about a trigger happy General making a mistake which leads to us wiping them out.
Pyongyang? You in danger, girl.
North Korea doesn't have a nuclear bomb. They can't even launch a rocket properly (all their satellites seem to fall into the Sea of Japan), and they have nothing that could reach the US.
Moreover, they know perfectly well what the response would be.

Seriously? You think the North Koren military works for Raytheon? Have your bullshit detector replaced.
Condi said: "I can mash one button and blow your ass to smithereens!"
So can John Kerry.
All ex-Texans should immediately return to their hometowns to await further instructions. If possible, cluster near Austin.
Invite anyone you know from Florida to join you.
I'm so rone-ry!
Un is an ugly baby who won't behave. He should be corrected.

If they do, it will likely crash before it gets anywhere. They are using 1950s Chinese rocket technology, which the Chinese got from the Russians which the Russians stole from the Germans in 1945.
He's targeting Texas?
Won't someone think of the poorly-written, Christo-fascist textbooks???
He's a kid who's bored, who wants to play War Games. Little does he know that he will get his ass kicked, if he starts anything. I knew their was something wrong with this kid the minute he became dictator.
As The New Yorker article stated: "the North Korean regime, for all its threats, knows that a missile strike on the U.S. would amount to suicide, and it is not, as far as we know, suicidal."
Much ado about nothing, bitches.
I thought we had all agreed to henceforth refer to Un as Lil' Kim?
Seriously, it's nothing. I do feel sorry for South Korea but America needs to keep it's money at home and not in the bank accounts of our war corporations.
I don't know, but they probaby will have to get a guy to throw it, considering that they can't seem to build a functioning missile.
I love you, r10. Especially since we are quickly heading toward the Orwellian nightmare in our world.
If its not love, then its the bomb that will bring us together.
The world will finally realize what a treasure it has in peace envoy and style leader Dennis Rodman?
If they throw a bomb, they die. End of story.
Does NO ONE wish that something like this would come down on Hollywood?
So, basically Kimmie is a real live Wiley Coyote, who's not using his Acme products?
Is there anyway we can re-program the North Korean missile to hit James Dobsons HQ in Colorado Springs, CO?
Look at the positive side of this...
There's no way that he will launch anything and be humiliated, at home and internationally, when the US blasts the rocket 2 secs after it took off.
The government will de-stabilize instead and that is the most dangerous scenario according to the New Yorker article. Their nuclear arsenal would be vulnerable to get scooped up, probably by Iran.

Mad Men. Breaking Bad. The Wire. Dexter.
Let's compromise with both, R36. If you live for TV shows (btw, The Wire is no longer in production) and not in reality, then maybe you should go to Texas--where Bush, hypothetically, probably wouldn't even be at the time of such an event.
R37? I'm being kind. I don't "live" for TV shows. I'm saying those TV shows show that Hollywood has *some* redeeming qualities.
TX is shit. Bush, Rick Perry, fucked up text books, fucked up people - a state full of batshit crazy fundamentalists.
Hollywood vs. TX? TX won't win - ever.
R38, You speak of Texas as if the whole state would be destroyed.
A population denser with rich bitches who do nothing could use much more of a slap in the face.
No, R24, we didn't.
Nice try at touting your own attempts and posts. Thanks for playing though.
We will turn them into a parking lot!!
It faw in ocean!
We'll try to stay serene and calm
When Kim Jung Un gets the bomb
I'm not worried about their silly bomb at all. It's the artillery that will be the problem - tens of thousands of pieces dug in and trained on Seoul, and we can't do anything about them.
The more likely outcome will be the North Korea launches a full scale invasion of South Korea and, of course, the US will be forced to intervene. Another war, another trillion plus dollars spent.
But that's how your country makes its money R45. By being war mongers.
R46, are you British? If so-pot, meet kettle.
Californians should go to Texas
Such an ugly little troll like his father. I've seen some really attractive Korean men but those two fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.
And $uddenly we have the U$ $ending F-22$ to $outh Korea.
Now who$e paying for them? And who$e profiting?
Are there any skinny people in Texas?
You fools believe anything the msm tells you.
Yes R51 there are. Texas, like everywhere else on Earth is made up of fat, short, skinny and tall and different colors. There are a lot of Hispanics, Asians and Arabs especially in the medical and engineering fields.
Shame on you people. I deserved an "oh dear" for my post which included this mess:
[quote]Now who$e paying for them? And who$e profiting?
I picture a rocket launching, barely getting off the ground destroying Pyongyang or Seoul, and sending bits of kimchi and shitty Korean "BBQ" to the four corners of the earth. Plus some radioactive material.
News just broke from the Pentagon that we're keeping a close eye on their radar on the N. Korean coastline. We're obviously taking this thing seriously.
They can't throw far.
I wish they could throw one at Washington but only when congress was in session and the President and Joe were out of the Capitol.
No. It is China who is subsidizing Kim, so much so that our sanctions are going unnoticed. Americans should make a conscious, collective effort to boycott Chinese imports. The American people are the only ones to save themselves. By continuing to purchase cheaply made products from China you are helping to keep the US minimum wage set lower and eliminating American jobs. They need to be called on their human rights and animal cruelty as well by hitting them in the pocketbook. Increase the demand for quality goods by boycotting as many Chinese products as possible. Don't wait for the government to fix this problem. The people have the power to change anything with a collective effort. Join the cause. Spread the word.
Kim Jung Un is hilarious with his ridiculous haircut and pretending to study military maps with binoculars in hand.
R57. A better alternative would be hitting Hollywood with prez and joe there at an $x,000 per plate fund raiser at any celebrity's house that will host them. Too much history in DC
If they do, we'll need new maps. Maps that show the Bay of Korea between South Korea and China. Barack seems able to pull the trigger when he's pissed.
As r57 says, they can't throw far. But with all the saber rattling, what will his people think when he backs off and doesn't send those nukes over?
Hopefully it will fall back on top of them, kill all the Koreabots. By the time the cloud crosses the ocean to the U.S., maybe it would be defused enough for us to deal with the fallout.
I've had enough of us "freeing a proud and gentle people from a brutal tyrant". Our resources are stretched too thin, and it's making "The Homeland" vulnerable.
Very scarey here in the office. The folks here all want to turn NK into a glass parking lot "before he sends a nuke our way".
Is this how all Americans feel?
It's how I feel, R64. But I think only Pyongyang should be nuked because that is where the elite of the military and government live and work. The rest of North Korea have been their slaves. Pyongyang is surrounded by mountains so it could be contained.
The media gets everyone hyped up...it really is so ridiculous. We should all just ignore the story.
Not possible this time, R66. This time it's not going to blow over. Something's gotta give.
Send in some "Mata Hari" type double agents. All fat boy wants is to get laid.
This could be Lilo's chance to pay her debt back to society. Ship her over there.
She would fuck anything at the drop of a hat.For a gram or two of course.
Lucille Ball was going to throw a nuclear weapon but Gary Morton talked her out of it.
OP, it's not in anyone's interest to have North Korea attack the US, not even in the interests of the Chinese who have allowed North Korea to hide behind them. Fatty Kim, crazy as he is, knows this so he will make noise until the US promises him more financial assistance now that the UN has cut off numerous other sources of financing for the elites and their nuclear programme. It's more likely that North Korea will saber-rattle the South than attack the US. If they even tried that, the Chinese would invade and occupy them just to prevent US retaliation (even a conventional weapons retaliation) in the region.
They could never hit the US homeland. But North Korea has long been capable of blowing Seoul to smithereens, and targeting US bases in SK. The question is, whether the US would obliterate North Korea if they attacked South Korea
The US has over 7000 warheads. North Korea has less than 10 warheads. The USA can easily wipe out NK.
Most of the NK missiles will crash because of bad engineering. The 1 that gets thru will be easily shot down. We are dealing with dinosaur launch technology here. The technology they are using is still less than what the Germans had in the 1940s.
