    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!
