    I see. That explains why the US are acting as though a north korean missile is so much of a bad scenario.
    Yeah, very much the ideal case is for there to be no launch at all.

    However, a NK test firing would at least provide the US with a live fire exercise free of charge, which is awfully kind.

    Such is the generosity of the great North Korean nation.

    I was dismayed that we do not also qualify for a cup of warm snow :sad:

    The US should test out their new laser on it. Could you imagine the looks on their faces if the US were to cook their precious missile for them all to see?

    That was the intentional end use of the cancelled YAL-1 aircraft, but I'm sure this new one will be adapted for that eventually.

    Pretty sure this contains a spelling error, but...

    Putting "mongler" instead of "monger" could have been deliberate - maybe a passing reference to "Mongoloid"?

    Far more likely is the fact that person who made it is just a bit thick.

    I have a feeling this is the more likely of the two.

    Whatever happens over the next few weeks, little Kimmy has dug himself quite a big hole. After so much tough talk from him, he'll have to do something at the risk of looking weak in the eyes if his country. Though to be honest, I'm sure that the government could put some kind of bull**** spin on it to make him seem a wise and vengeful leader...

    Speaking of propaganda, have a look at the KCNA website for a rough idea of the kind of information the average NK citizen gets fed.

    Just my thoughts on this, sorry if some of this has been mentioned before, I didn't read all 36 pages... :P

    I can think of no more a damning insult to Kim Jong-Il than to declare Kim Jong-Un the greatest leader they've ever had.

    Is it only day 14?? It feels like day 114.

    Today I am expecting the Dear Young Leader to announce that he will turn all of Germany into radioactive rubble before the night is out and to inform South Korea that they must abandon their homes and flee screaming into the streets. Also that Justin Bieber will pay a state visit to Pyongyang to salute the Dear Young Leader with a specially-composed song.

    Pyongyang is to be renamed 'We Adore the Great Dear Young Leader for Ever City'.
