    IMO, the only way a war between the USA and North Korea would happen, would be if the USA made a pre-emptive strike on NK. Nobody, no matter how doo-lally, would openly attack the most powerful military force on earth - the North Koreans know they would be squashed like a bug underfoot. They also know that if they deliberately attack a close ally of the US - they will be wiped out - and nobody is that crazy. The danger to Americans is much more likely to come from some terrorist attack - a dirty bomb, or pollution of the water supply, etc.
    Oh, I wish I were a glow worm,
    for a glow worm's never glum,
    'cause how can you be grumpy
    when the sun shines out your bum!

    Little KIM has a mental defect and his people believe everything he says because the state control everything. If he says they can destroy the US them the majority believe it. Most do not know the power of the US and they beleive they defeated the US in the Korean conflict. They do not understand that we STOPPED.

    We could have taken care of it but WWII had just passed. McAurthor was correct.

    They have been getting away with things for years. Honestly, they probably think they can continue to get away with more and more without an aggressive attack by the United States. Previously presidents and cabinets failed to really take them seriously. Former deals fell through with hardly any consequences, unless you count starving NK citizens (but who really care about that?).

    We are getting closer to war.

    US will launch 'massive military response' to NKorea threats: Mattis

    he United States will launch a "massive military response" to threats from North Korea, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said Sunday.He spoke after President Donald Trump met with his national security advisers following a test of what Pyongyang said was a hydrogen bomb able to fit atop a missile.


    "Any threat to the United States or its territories, including Guam, or our allies will be met with a massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming," Mattis said.


    He added: "Kim Jong-Un should take heed of the United Nations Security Council's unified voice. All members unanimously agreed on the threat North Korea poses and remain unanimous in their commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
    "We are not looking to the total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea, but as I said, we have many options to do so."

    Here is a good article from CNN about hydrogen bombs.

    What is a hydrogen bomb and can North Korea deliver one?

    North Korea says it has successfully tested a hydrogen bomb, raising fears it is getting closer to achieving its goal of a nuclear-tipped intercontinental missile.



    Hydrogen bombs have a far larger yield than traditional weapons, meaning devices can be smaller while providing greater devastation.



    Making them small enough to fit on a missile is a challenging task, and one that North Korea claims to have achieved. Experts are not so sure, but as long as Pyongyang claims to have the technology, the working assumption is that it's true.

    NOKO seems to be playing with an ace up their sleeve, defiant, hostile and aggressive in every way. Is that ace China? Do you suppose that China will step in like they did last time? They've built their military up, in fact built new islands for them. New weapons, including an aircraft carrier and who knows what else. It just seems to me that KJU can't be this stupid, to take on the USA and allies. If all hell breaks loose and we initiate action, will China step in? I say yes. They don't want SOKO on their border and they don't want NOKO refugees streaming in. They want Taiwan, and might think this is a good time to jump them.

    China has warned NK that they would not back them if they attack first.

    But we may be past that stage. After this last nuclear test the US may take the initiative.
