    I know the chances have definitely been there simmering under the surface for a while but i feel like there's a lot of fear-mongering going on and exaggeration. These asshole leaders and their posturing, the media that almost seems like they're trying to egg it on or make SOMETHING happen with the way they like to string stuff along for ratings/entertainment, making predictions and doomsday scenarios IF something where to happen, shit like that can potentially just add more fuel to the fire can't it? That's what alarms me more than the rhetoric/narrative. I suppose it's all like dominos though, it starts somewhere.

    This shit is fucking scary. The worse part is that it's two immature and idiotic men that are trading insults and we're the victims.

    I'm concerned about where China stands.
    They made clear that they won't back NK up if NK strikes first. I suppose this means that if we launch a preemptive strike, China WILL stand with NK.

    But they also said that the would prevent the US and South Korea to attack NK first. It takes away Trump's ability to go ahead with surgical strikes against NK.

    I'm going to say this in case we get nuked and shit. I really love you guys. You're some of the most sensible people I have met and if we're going to die in the hands of some douchebag, nonsensical, egomaniacal, racist, xenophobic, homophobic, anti-humanist fuckhead. At least I'm happy to know that I have died discovering some great music and great films and all thanks to you. I really mean that.

    North Korea threatens to sink Japan and turn US to 'ashes and darkness'

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...ashes-darkness

    The Korea Asia-Pacific peace committee said, and i quote "The four islands of the [Japanese] archipelago should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb of Juche, Japan is no longer needed to exist near us" and "Let’s reduce the US mainland into ashes and darkness. Let’s vent our spite with mobilisation of all retaliation means which have been prepared till now"

    ...fucking hell!

    @allegro Remember when the Soviets shot down Korean Air Lines Flight 007 in 1983, at the height of the Cold War, when Reagan the Cowboy was in the White House? Even he was smart enough not to start WW3.

    That headline gave me flashback of that (even though no planes are being shot down yet) and with the idiots now involved, there is a very real chance we are all going to die. I hope otters will survive and take over the Earth.

    I'm going to go eat tons of poutine now. It was nice knowing you all.

    Probably. I sure know that I genuinely wake up every morning knowing there's a 50/50 chance that today could be the first day of a nuclear winter. I don't personally understand how anyone can be optimistic at this point that nothing will actually happen.

    This isn't the first time NK has "declared" war on us. Too much unnecessary stress and fear leads to bad things happening, regardless of who you are. Most of the time, all these articles and news reports are intentionally leaving out important details, creating more panic then there already is. Yes, it is a scary thought of this going to shit, so far, the missiles can't even reach the west coast.

    It's sorta disheartening to see you guys just give up like that, but we also have no idea what the missile or even the bombs actually do. For all we know, they are just pulling everything out their asses, but then again I have no idea what the fuck I'm even talking about so how would I know what to do. I Just don't enjoy you all saying "welp, we are fucked, nothing we can do now, nice seeing you". I'm not saying this situation is down the shitter, but that's not to say it can't ever get any better.

    Take my opinion with a grain of salt, it's just my opinion, not a fact

    North Korea aint the Soviet Union they had 10.000 Hydrogen bombs, NK is pathetic and one of the poorest places on earth,however I do agree this Korea situation is getting really dangerous.
    When Trump is threatening to destroy NK he is talking to China, telling China they have had enough of their bullshit, I think its actually really scaring China now.
