      Has the DPRK, which is smaller than Oklahoma, already declared war on the mattress state, or am I missing something?

          If the DPRK did not border on Russia and China, then the United States would long ago, having rubbed a test tube of washing powder in the UN Security Council, would have invaded North Korea. So respect is, respect, but Kim is not and advantageously beats the geographical position of his country when he raids on the empire of "good".

            US military ready to use any means, including nuclear capabilities, to contain the DPRK. Washington Seriously Assesses Pyongyang's Missile and Nuclear Threats and intends to react to them.

            Absolutely fucking audience. Yes, if Russia really responded to the US threats and the deployment of bases and laboratories around Russia, many questions could be closed due to the lack of sources of concern.
            Has Washington prepared to accept reciprocal gifts, or hopes that it will go wrong in Iraq?

      I remembered the political information: "There will be no war. There will be such a struggle for peace that there will be no stone unturned."

    With the disappearance of nuclear weapons, peace on the peninsula will also disappear ...

    I don’t understand, why are people in South Korea happy?
    Are they so amused by the prospect of living in a radioactive area?
    Or does the term "nuclear capability" mean something very useful for the Korean peninsula?

    Well, they already tried to scare Kim Jong-un, even the aircraft carriers drove in, they said something about nuclear weapons, so what? And South Korea readily supports this idea of ​​the United States, pretending not to realize the consequences of the use of nuclear weapons against the DPRK. The world, at the suggestion of the Americans, is walking on a blade.

    something tells me, since the UK borders directly on the Russian Federation and China, it is unlikely that the striped ones will be able to throw the SK with vigorous loaves so easily, and the YuK would be better not to boast and not climb where they should not, but concentrate on Hyundai and Samsung, otherwise they will live in radioactive ash

    Also news to me!
    Anyone with a vigorous loaf is using "any means, including nuclear capabilities" to deter.
    Only the arrogant brandish this club over their heads, threatening the unwanted.
