Add to this the latest “successful” nuclear test by North Korea was 0.7 kilotons. They may call it successful but to those in the weapons community a more common term is “a fizzle.” I seem to recall that the first weapon detonated by the US was somewhere in the 10 to 15 kiloton range.

The only good thing about this, if one can call it good, is the amount of money that North Korea is wasting on these jokes will hasten the time when its people rise up. Sadly, babies are starving in the meantime.

First, North Korea does not have rocket that can reach the US.
Second, North Korea does not have the ability to send any nuke on a long range rocket.
Third any attempt by North Korea to hit the US with a rocket would result in the total and instant destruction of North Korea.
I always find North Korea’s threats kind of illogical and psychotic, but humerous.

Well, that still puts them far ahead of Iraq, whom we invaded for weapons that did not even exist.

So North Korea might be a threat to the US– it has atomic weapons and is close enought to make the rocket threat credible. Iran, by contrast, does not have the bomb and is nowhere having missile capability. But Netanyahu is intent on starting a war with Iran, and he wants Americans to wage it, pay for it and to die there. Romney will go along because war is good for the economy: it lowers the unemployment rate and manufacturing benefits by producing material that can be destroyed.
