But the missile systems that figure in Mr. Kim’s blitz of threats and orders do not yet have the range to approach American shores. There is no evidence his nuclear weapons can be shrunk to fit atop a missile. And a prominent photograph showing Mr. Kim’s military making a Normandy-style beach landing appears to have been manufactured, raising questions about whether his forces could possibly repeat the feat his grandfather pulled off in 1950, ordering a ground attack to open the Korean War.
On top of all that, most countries on the verge of a major military assault do not broadcast their battle plans to the world.
“You would expect such a military order to be issued in secret,” said Kim Min-seok, spokesman of the South Korean Defense Ministry. “We believe that by revealing it to the media and publicizing it to the world, North Korea is playing psychology.”

Ugh, North Korea is funny. Lost in their own world, they have no sense of reality. Life goes on...

Apparently Kim Jong-un may have been threatening to nuke Austin, along with Washington, Los Angeles, and Honolulu. The hash tag du jour is #whyaustin.

Is the term "don't mess with Texas" still around? May want to let Kim know that.

I just saw Anderson Cooper interview a North Korean who escaped from a prison camp that he was born and raised in. It was so shocking and horrible to hear about what life was like in that camp: the food and emotional deprivation, the fear and total ignorance of the world outside of the camp. The first dictator, Kim Il Sung, believed it would take three generations of families in order for rebels, who fought against the communists in the Korean War, to be redeemed. There's supposed to be 150,000 people in those camps.

Once a link is up, I'll post it.

Does anyone know why the world does so little to stop North Korea's madness?

Like that helped.

I don't know. It's just really appalling to hear about a government being so oppressive and insane towards its citizens.

Hardly an uncommon thing, oppressive governments are as common as bread and butter, they just have different ways of going about it.

I really don't think invading NK is going to make things better for the NK people.

The only thing you could 'do' about North Korea would be to resume the war suspended in 1953. It wasn't exactly a cakewalk the first time around.

Yeah I know this is all a no-win situation that could only create more chaos.

I was just appalled by the report. I had heard about the torture, famine and cannibalism that goes on in those camps, but a lot more happens there too.
