They don’t have the bomb, they don’t have a deliverable atomic device, and they don’t have a targetable rocket. They have nothing. They should be ignored and allowed to freeze in the dark. Their whole Potemkin Defense Program is working beautifully. Now they’ll want us to pay them not to detonate a weapon they don’t have–just watch.

Can you please rearrange these words into a form that makes sense? So far it would seem to be a random collection of words culled from a dictionary….

NK’s nuke booms are useless toys. firstly, they dont have missiles crossing Pacific Ocean. Secondly, their rocket launched yesterday is very original, so even if they can produce a long range missile, it can not breakthrough missile defence system. finally, they cant make powerful nuke booms, those booms cannot even destroy one village even though they can pass Pacific Ocean.

I took a nuclear test once and only scored 78%. But then again you really don’t have to be that accurate to scare the bejesus out of your neighbors.

Interesting how a country that has exploded an atomic device and has now demonstrated the ability to launch a three-stage rocket, gets a virtual pass from the U.S., etc.

While Iran gets inspected and pounded to-death in the press and world opinion for basic uranium enrichment activities. Much farther down the threat scale.

I wonder if it has anything to do with proximity to China vs. proximity to Israel?
