But what does that get them? The US will still be in the South. They still won't have bargaining power for whatever. It will just end up being a nuclear powered country with sanctions.

Is China okay with nuclear missile armed NK?

Well if they did attack the US, China can claim their innocence and blame Trump for inciting NK beyond either China nor Russia's ability to rein them in...

As long as those missiles aren't aimed at them should they be worried?

China is basically a somewhat more tolerant NK as far as their government goes. As mentioned as long as they ain't bugging them they're cool. Now if Kim wants to start dick swinging towards China they will hurt them.

It guarantees them security from the United States. Do you think the United States would have deposed Saddam if Iraq nuclear weapons? Having nukes means the United States will be unable to invade or topple the regime.

I am sure China isn't thrilled with the situation, but North Korea is still dependent on Beijing for economic support which gives them a lot of leverage. I think in the long run, North Korea will prove to be a liability and a headache for China especially if relations sour.

How does nuking the U.S. guarantee them security? If they try to nuke the U.S. they will fail, because of our defenses, and then the U.S. will retaliate aggressively. Probably by removing the Jong-un regime whether China likes it or not.

Even if they managed to nuke the West Coast that would in no way stop us from retaliating. The center of our government is on the East Coast and our missile silos are in the Midwest. Hell, even if they somehow managed to nuke Washington it wouldn't stop us from retaliating, because the US government and military have contingency plans in case of every imaginable missile attack.

I'd go so far as to say, them having nukes wouldn't stop us from invading, because their nukes pose very little actual threat to the U.S.. If the U.S. military wants to or needs to invade a place, it's going to invade. Nukes be damned.

By the way, the U.S. just announced that it will be testing a missile defense system, THAAD, because of NK's stupidity.

The test will be the first of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) to defend against a simulated attack by an intermediate-range ballistic missile (IRBM), one of the officials said. The THAAD interceptors will be fired from Alaska.

Let me clarify. The reason North Korea wants nuclear weapons is not to nuke the United States. They want them as a deterrent. The United States will not take military action against North Korea if they have nuclear weapons. At least not for the sake of regime change. There is a reason two nuclear powers have never gone to war.

Even if North Korea cannot hit the United States - a fact which may change very soon - it would be insane for the United States to invade North Korea. Seoul would be reduced to a smoldering crater in a matter of minutes. These recent tests also mean that North Korea could target major cities in Japan as well as American installations. If Kim know his regime is going to fall, he will have no reason not to go down in a nuclear blaze of glory.

And?????

I suspect Trump only looks upon the Allied as someone to blame if he's found wanting!

The scary part is who is the most likely to open fire first?????

After all those ships colliding maybe it's not the missiles we need to be worried about?????
