North Korea: Will it develop into war?

Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon said there was no military option because Seoul would be turned to dust on Day One by NK's conventional weapons alone.

They said Saddam was evil etc and look what happened ...

Trump needs the distraction of foreign conflict but probably doesn't want an actual war.

In 1999, tRUMP said he would ‘negotiate like crazy with Nth K” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQUaQo2j42Y

Now he flipped saying "talking is not the answer!"
What could go wrong with 2 nutters going for it.
I wish his aides would send him back to the gold course

To be fair, 18 years ago he said along the lines of "we need to negotiate with them now and find out where they are coming from before they develop nuclear weapons and point them at America." And the host was trying crucify him by claiming that he wanted to commit to nuking the country. Seems like an actual case of fake news!

This, the citizenship debacle, same sex marriage, fake news, Russian interference and a couple of hurricanes.... It's almost like they are running some kind of distraction campaign for another secret motive...

With these 2 x hurricanes smashing the US atm, it would be perfect time for NK to drop a few missiles on them as well

I can’t imagine the yanks being involved in a war. They are such a peace loving mob.
I heard recently that the yanks have officially added another state – the permanent state of war!

Looks to me like the current state of play is that The Donald and Rex Tillerson are playing good cop - bad cop with N Korea at the moment.

Not so much with Rocket Man but with the N Korean people.

Tillerson attempting to say to the N Korean people ----

Look, Rocket Man and the Donald are heading down the path of war. YOU guys need to do the world (and yourselves) a favour by stepping in and getting rid of Rocket Man yourselves. It may get messy but he's gotta go if you guys want to avoid an eventual war by doing nothing. Even N Korea's best friend (China) has given up on him. Do something about getting rid of him before its too late.

It seems that the North Koreans hacked into South Korea's intelligence network about 12 months ago.
N K claims to have uncovered a SK/US plot to get rid of Rocket Man.

That claim suggests why Rocket Man had his half brother killed. Stop any plot by getting rid of any possible replacement that SK/US thought might not have the same hard line as him.

Imagine being so deep that your half brother decides it is worth offing you so that his adversaries don't off him.

What is worrying is how many senior people are saying Trump is not up to the job.

Great info from a bloke who was at the coalface (moonface?) ... http://www.news.com.au/finance/work/lea ... 317567a9b6

Very sad that it is the average Jo in NK that will starve.
