    Default World war 3 imminent?

    Probably an exaggeration to expect WW3, but it does seem like NK is hell bent on starting something. If only china would stop backing them, maybe then they wouldn't dare to pull shit like this.

    What's a few shells between friends?

    I'm really surprised that this isn't bigger news - I only read about this a few hours ago.

    They should blast this communist shithole while they can. Even China will drop NK if they act so dumb.

    Just yesterday I read about the new atomic research facility they investigated in NK. Looks like it's ready to build some explosive stuff. And that after paying them so much before to shut down the other facility in Yongbyon.

    The more you learn about NK in literature, to more you are disgusted that this country still lives. I'm doing my phd on failed states right now and wrote my diploma about NK. It's simply the worst country on the planet.

    NK for the past few decades have been pulling this stupid bullshit.

    America doesn't want to act because if they budge then China (our main income AND production source) will start sending its billions of yellow countrymen into war. The plus side of a communist country.

    American will lose most of its foreign based income AND have to go into war. Which will easily surge the third world war with partial countries backing China and the 1st world's backing America.

    Then when the hell wraith ends the two strongest nations in the world will have either used nuclear warfare and blown the entire world into oblivion, or simply cause so much economic turmoil (being the Largest social service country (US) and the largest production country (CN)) that we all might as well have been blown apart by nuclear atomic radiation anyways.


    China is using NK's super Totalitarian/Communist regimen to generate new nuclear/advanced warfare tech. And honestly other countries dont want to butt in because
    1. NK is a useless pushover and most importantly
    2. China will fuck back and then everyone will just get batshit crazy and die


    So, no. WWIII will not happen. China happens to enjoy America's influence. Hong Kong is half Americanized and is in the heart of China. And most importantly America needs China, and vice versa.

    At most its just going to come into a really tricky standstill where both sides get there way. NK calms the fuck down with its annoying actions and everyone remains happy until NK decides to be a dick again and launches more test missles.

    true story oldmanhobo. the economy is so globalized that it really wouldn't benefit anyone to go to war.

    Yeah, but China is so heavily invested in the dollar that they can't risk the US economy totally tanking. A minor collapse is okay, but nothing extended.

    I guess that's part of the fun of living on the other side of the world - we don't really worry about what's going on in the rest of the world. I guess that's why this didn't make the news here until the news sources were sure that they couldn't just keep ignoring it.
