It’s a given, the USA could obliterate North Korea, however, as Steve Bannon, Trump’s outgoing advisor said, ‘…there are no military options.”

The consequences of war would be unimaginably horrific for both sides of the 38th parallel. The millions of casualties and wholesale destruction of cities like Seoul and Pyongyang could never be justified.

So how does this end?

Or do we simply learn to live with a nuclear-armed and missile-capable North Korea?

Successive US presidents have promised that would never happen, and yet it might already be a reality. Kim Jong-un seems to be betting his regime on the hope his newly developed firepower will offer a guarantee of protection, rather than an invitation to disaster ::::

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is once again testing the tolerance of the USA

When the North Koreans decided to fire an intermediate-range missile over Japan, they were taking a huge gamble. …just how far could they push the United States before it likely reacts?

A few days earlier the very random regime fired three short-range missiles as the annual US-South Korean war games launched in the region. The provocation was largely ignored.

…is this latest launch a game-changer?. Tuesday’s launch was probably one of the North’s new Hwasong-12 missiles, the missile they’d threatened to fire at Guam.

How close we are to that line, and what happens beyond, is unclear.

Kim Jong-un has seemingly decided that he’s on the right side of that line. And he can tell his people of yet another glorious chapter in the ongoing battle against the evil United States of America.
