“If he [ Trump] gets our full nuclear retaliatory capability, within minutes after one round going into Seoul, there will be nothing left

‘Missiles to fly over Japan & land near Guam’: N. Korea’s strike plan vs US to be ready in ‘days’

North Korean state media has outlined details of the country’s Guam strike plan expected to be ready by mid-August. The attack will reportedly include four missiles fired over Japan and landing within a few dozen kilometers of US territory.

‘You will lose’: Mattis warns N. Korea against starting a war

Continuing the heated exchange with US President Donald Trump, Pyongyang’s state media outlet KCNA said that the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un, will be presented with an elaborate plan of the attack by mid-August, Reuters reported.

The plan envisions launching four Hwasong-12 rockets that would “cross the sky above Shimane, Hiroshima and Koichi Prefectures of Japan,” the report says, citing General Kim Rak Gyom.

The missiles are set to “fly 3,356.7km (2,085.8 miles) for 1,065 seconds” before practically reaching the shores of Guam, landing in the waters just “30-40km away.”

Pyongyang also ridiculed Trump’s promise to counter any incoming threats from the North with “fire and fury,” labelling the remark a “load of nonsense” and in its turn vowing to act with “absolute force.”

Trump’s initial remark courted controversy, prompting Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to reassure Americans that North Korea poses “no immediate danger” to US, while Defense Secretary James Mattis stated that Washington is sure in its military preeminence, urging North Korea to refrain from “consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.”

“If he [ Trump] gets our full nuclear retaliatory capability, within minutes after one round going into Seoul, there will be nothing left,” McInerney told Fox News on Monday.

Moscow, meanwhile, once again appealed for both sides to show restraint and to resume dialogue to defuse the tensions building up in the region.

I don't think we can yet conclude that.

This is just a tactic to demonstrate real capability in the most threatening manner possible, nothing more, nothing less. 

And its the US which has brought this on.

Not NK.

Which was sitting quietly just doing what it's always been doing, till Trump started poking it, back in when, March?

I said a few weeks ago the Koreans are known as the Irish of the Asian world.

Now, how would one expect an Irishman to behave if they were in Kim's shoes?

Come out fighting, right?

But Kim, as I and a few others keep saying, has everything to lose and nothing to gain by actually making the first move in reality, unless and until he's convinced he has nothing to lose because he has no other choice.

And it's entirely up to the US to give him that choice.

When was the last time an Irishman backed down, even if he's surrounded by ten men?

That's who you're dealing with here, and every move Trump makes to ratchet it up, is counter-productive on a number of different levels.

Someone has to say uncle and I predict, it's not going to be, and never will be, Kim.  

Time for the US to show some maturity as the adult in the room, IMO. If this goes hot, it didn't need to happen that way. And the fault will lie exclusively in Washington. Period.

I am pretty sure total destruction is why NK won't do a thing.

And nobody that it actually matters what they say, will care. Drama non grata so far and it is short sighted to think it will be limited to USvsNK. They are all looking for an excuse and nk is just a "blasting cap" for a bigger series of conflicts all over. War never came here when people were ready for it and strong. Now its here and bunches of em think its about a blanket on thier head, wandering around.

You cannot believe the military micro-drone swarming technology that's been around for years that make the movie "Ender's Game" look obsolete. What these micro-drones can do is ugly and frightening, but very efficient and effective all within seconds.
