North Korea Threatens Nuclear Attack

Something bad is probably going to happen to someone over there.

Good job it is very nearly as far away from us as it could be on the planet and will be absolutely none of our business, eh?

North Korae rattle their sabres just so America increases aid it's a cat and mouse game at best, however China might take an interest (or loose patience) if they start to actually prepare for a fight.
What is interesting is how little influence they(China) have compared to what everyone thought they had.

From China's point of view the ideal is probably to let them have at it.

Let Fat Leader get his arse kicked and be hanged from a lamp post then tell the SKs/Yanks/Everyone else involved that they need to bugger off back to where they started from now.

There is (unfortunately) one slight problem with that hypothesis. If the Tubby Leader and his merry men decide to recommence hostilities, doesn't the original UN resolution become active again, to be enforced by the members of the Security Council - of which we are a permanent member?

As good a time as any to announce that we aren't playing soldiers anymore.
The UN and everyone else can like it or lump it.

North Korean Army

Active personnel: 1,106,000 (ranked 5th)

Probably best we sit this one out.

North Korea is running a drug ring, and Kim Jong-un is its Bond-style Mr Big

I trust the Americans have told Kim-Il Fattie privately that if he is so stupid as to use a nuclear weapon, the largest one in their arsenal will descend on top of the leader bunker - converting it to a very deep hole in the ground and sending the Dear Leader to join the shades of his ancestors.

Don't necessarily disagree at all.

However, if we want to retain our ability (as a P5 member) to veto "stuff" that ain't in our interests, we probably need to at least try to abide by our responsibilities. It's at this point that the pollies and FCO may realise that we haven't been keeping up our subscriptions...........

Should be an interesting debate seeing China sits on the same panel.......

Weren't they on the other side last time?

I spot a tiny problem!!!
