Radio Free Asia(RFA) says North Korean authorities have dispatched emergency standby orders to the leaders of the ruling Workers’ Party committees and civil defense units.

Friday's RFA report quotes a source in Yanggang Province as saying that the Central Military Commission of the party delivered the orders via e-mail.

The e-mail apparently arrived even before the North publicly threatened to retaliate against the U.S. “hundreds of thousands of times” over newly approved U.N. sanctions.

Another source in the North told RFA that the state-run Rodong Sinmun newspaper carrying the North’s statement was distributed by military helicopters in Jagang Province on Tuesday. The source said it was the first time military helicopters have been used to deliver the newspaper except when the paper carried new year's messages by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

It all comes down to whether Kim fires those weapons at Guam. If he doesn't, things will settle down. If he does, in the words of Trump's top general Mattis: “I’m going to plead with you, do not cross us. Because if you do, the survivors will write about what we do here for 10,000 years."

That could still be considered an act of war, potentially.

I would suspect a response similar to Syria: a precision strike of overwhelming power to a very specific target, possibly using technology NK isn't even aware that we have, to really hammer home how completely hopeless any attempt at a fight would be. Imagine if in response to those strikes the US navy uses their railgun (linked below) to fire a ballistic projectile over the horizon to take out a target at mach 6 with a projectile that can't even be seen by radar. What's Kim going to do then?

Although personally, I'd much prefer making an open declaration that forces Kim's leadership to turn him over to save themselves. Better to let them tear each other apart from within rather than use external force.

Are concentration camps a good enough reason?
I'm pretty sure anything headed in the vicinity of Guam could easily be spun into "an act of war". Especially considering there's no way of knowing if one has a nuke on it.

The US will continue to build up missile defense and radar systems on the coasts of all their allies surrounding China as long as NK is let loose. It's actually the opposite... the longer China doesn't act, the more heavily defended SK, Japan, etc become. The reason they "recommend" that the US not deploy the THAAD is because even though it's pointed at NK, it directly counters China's ability to act in the south China sea. By letting NK do what it wants, it gives the US an excuse to fortify every country surrounding China.

I'd pick a target that puts them on the defensive, like the missile batteries aimed at Seoul. Imagine if you're Kim and not only did your bluff get called, but your only means of holding the world hostage has been taken from you. Now you're in a position where any action can be countered by military force because the risk of a counter-attack on SK has been eliminated. It wouldn't be an easy thing to pull off, but it would certainly get the message across.

    Misses the forest for the trees. The greatest danger isn't a nuclear strike on the United States, it's the possibility of Seoul or Tokyo being destroyed and millions of people getting killed. Plus, the possibility of nuclear escalation by China.

    Add in the fact that the one with the larger arsenal has seemed entirely too eager to ACTUALLY use them since before he was even elected, and it's pretty terrifying. Kim's threats have always just been rhetoric, because he knows what the outcome would be if he actually did anything. Trump's threats are MUCH harder to read and he could be senile and incompetent enough to actually do something stupid.

    Exactly. Let Kimmy have the last word, let his little utopia think their God won, and strongly impress on him that anything beyond posturing will be met with harsh retaliation. Trump is trying to be seen as strong here, but the world sees him as a fool for even indulging kimmy.

    The Korean war never ended in Korea.
    Is it surprising to see NK be alot more prepared for war than others?

    They probably lived in fear for decades. Their leaders made that part of the country into war machine after all the decades of armistice. We have the luxury of being thousands of miles away while they live in constant tension. NK is not willing to compromise its mission to unite Korea. Neither sides are going to forfeit their way of life. So yeah... arguably, we outsiders just delayed the inevitable.

    What about a non nuclear strike to the waters off Guam to make his childish point?


    I would suspect a response similar to Syria: a precision strike of overwhelming power to a very specific target, possibly using technology NK isn't even aware that we have, to really hammer home how completely hopeless any attempt at a fight would be. Imagine if in response to those strikes the US navy uses their railgun (linked below) to fire a ballistic projectile over the horizon to take out a target at mach 6 with a projectile that can't even be seen by radar. What's Kim going to do then?

    Although personally, I'd much prefer making an open declaration that forces Kim's leadership to turn him over to save themselves. Better to let them tear each other apart from within rather than use external force.

    http://www.popularmechanics.com/military/weapons/a21174/navy-electromagnetic-railgun/

    I'd support this. Surgical strike, take out a silo or artillery battery.


    I'd pick a target that puts them on the defensive, like the missile batteries aimed at Seoul. Imagine if you're Kim and not only did your bluff get called, but your only means of holding the world hostage has been taken from you. Now you're in a position where any action can be countered by military force because the risk of a counter-attack on SK has been eliminated. It wouldn't be an easy thing to pull off, but it would certainly get the message across.


    I don't think you're aware at how many things NK have pointed at Seoul. It's something close to 15,000. Good luck taking them all out before NK have a chance to pull the trigger.

      The way people hate Trump there is no middle ground, so war probably is on the table as we speak. If people are opposites you have to look for the middle ground but people won't with Trump, so enjoy life as much as you can Trump haters.

      What are you trying to say?

      The media needs to end their attacks on Trump, for all we know Trump is playing the warmonger game because of their attacks on him. They can't say something good about him, EVER.


      I.... what?

      Misses the forest for the trees. The greatest danger isn't a nuclear strike on the United States, it's the possibility of Seoul or Tokyo being destroyed and millions of people getting killed. Plus, the possibility of nuclear escalation by China.

      That's not our problem. China should have kept a better leash on Un, shame those people have to die but we owe them nothing


      It's "not our problem" if our allies get nuked and millions of people die?

      Yeah, it's not, they aren't paying their fair share to us anyway.

      What the hell is wrong with you? Are you seriously trying to say that they deserve to die because of money? Like dude, seriously, what the hell is wrong with you?

      Well this apparently happened before the sanctions even hit them, so I doubt it's anything to worry about. I still don't think we're going to war.

      Please let this happen, just piss or get off the pot already. Also, NK is to blame on liberals not Trump especially Clinton and Obama


      Care to explain how liberals are to blame for NK? You are aware their totalitarian regime didn't suddenly pop in during the Clinton administration, right?

      Nothing happened when NKers crossed the border and brutally murdered some soldiers, nothing happened when they bombed the s*** out of that island. Nothing will happen now that China is no longer backing them. North Korea is f***ed. Big time. They play nice and they might get out of this alive.

      Does it make it better that they're too indoctrinated to realize how horrible their situation is?

      I'm skeptical as to whether the majority of people there are actually indoctrinated and just goes along with it out of fear

      Unlike China, even getting the internet is difficult in North Korea, let alone bypassing the state filters. They only know what their Government tells them, so it's fairly easy to believe that the majority of them are indoctrinated.

      Wtf is china doing? I thought they had Kim in their pockets?

      China has everything to gain and nothing to lose by doing nothing

      Nope. It could place the us and China in a trade war. China gets a lot of metals from north korea.

      North Korea isn't a giant threat. Their weapons are dated and poorly maintained, their electricity barely operates even for the few people that have it, and most of his country is starving to death.

      That doesn't mean that he can't do a lot of damage though. NK could very well kill all life on Guam, and the fact that he's taunting to do just that gives the US reason and justification to stop him.

      they never expected two crazies to go head to head. They could contain one crazy person, not two?

      Both Kim and Trump have more ego than sense.


      They should solve it on the golf course but is he's anything like his old man Kim would beat Donald by like 89 strokes.

      Absolutely. I'm speaking in the grand scale of it all. NK doesn't stand a chance against the US as a whole, but you're absolutely right that the people of Guam definitely have something to worry about.
