No, I really don’t, because it’s true that there’s little you or I can do to prevent it. I suppose we could stop paying taxes, but we know where that would end up (i.e., FBI guns in our ears). And I hope you don’t think that I’m one of the ones who acts like we are the only ones who are imperialistic. I am more exorcised about us than others, of course, because I’m a citizen of this country. I also find it disgusting that we’re supposed to have a system in place to prevent this type of crap (name, only a vote of Congress can declare war), but we’ve simply and expressly ignored that requirement since WWII.

Fair enough. I honestly don't really know your views all that well, and as such I was trying to avoid any sort of accusations.

I agree with you about how disconnected our government is from the people and parchment that supposedly governs it.

If the FBI shows up at your house it won't be because you stopped paying taxes. LOL

Well no one will really show up, they will just start garnishing your wages without due process.

North Korea delivered a fresh round of rhetoric Thursday with claims it had "powerful striking means" on standby for a missile launch, while Seoul and Washington speculated that the country is preparing to test a medium-range missile during upcoming national celebrations.

April 15 - Kim Il Sung's 101st birthday. That's likely when the action will happen, if anything. It's about the same time that North Korea failed to launch a missile last year (the 100th birthday), so N. Korea will want to show they're powerful.

As of now, nothing's actually happened. N. Korea has a few missiles in position to launch, but nothing else yet. S. Korea & the US bumped up their surveillance level to Watchcon 2, putting more people in position to watch & wait (meaning the North is very, very likely to do SOMETHING, though 99% likely just a show of force via a missile launch or something). In N. Korea, the army is preparing for the show of force that accompanies April 15 (massive military parades & whatnot). That's about it.

S. Korea also asked N. Korea to come to negotiations. That'll be the next step when the North is done spouting their world dominance and Godzilla-like power.

Other than that, nothing. Nothing's ever mentioned about the situation in the Korean news that I watch here, though it is reported in the newspapers from time to time.

Yokohama misfires tweet about North Korea missile launch
With a tweet composed and ready in case of a strike, the city mistakenly sent it out to nearly 42,000 followers.

Is North Korea serious about military action? Or is it just testing the world?
A missile had been briefly raised to an upright firing position, stoking concerns that a launch is imminent, a U.S. official told CNN Thursday.
Later, another U.S. official said it's been tucked back into its launcher.

how about a precision strike right on top of that missile next time it pokes out? i'd say about 15 seconds after it comes out would do the trick.

Nice in theory, but somehow I don't think China will be on board with that just yet.

It's unfortunate that we will need to wait for them to actually do something in order to respond because of China.

We need to rush production of the MIM-06960 Prophylactic Missile Defense System to be deployed around their rapidly-enlarging Taepodong capability.

Barack Obama called on North Korea to end what he described its "belligerent approach" on Thursday as US intelligence officials concluded for the first time that the country has a nuclear weapon small enough to be carried on a missile.
